MATTHEW B. STODDARD
Owner of The Stoddard Firm
Matt Stoddard worked for years defending the world’s largest appliance manufacturers in serious injury and wrongful death product liability cases, global transportation companies in serious injury and wrongful death tractor-trailer accident cases, and a variety of healthcare providers in serious injury medical malpractice cases.
In 2011, Mr. Stoddard stopped defending corporate interests and began a rewarding career representing those harmed by the negligence of others. Since that time, Matt Stoddard has tried numerous high dollar serious injury and wrongful death cases in the Atlanta metro-area including cases in Fulton County, DeKalb County, Gwinnett County, and Cobb County, and Clayton County. He has also tried multiple additional high dollar serious injury and wrongful death cases in some of Georgia’s rural areas including Hart County, Dougherty County, Richmond County, and Tattnall County.
Matt Stoddard is a professional, hardworking, ethical advocate. He routinely faces some of the nation’s largest companies and some of the world’s largest insurers – opponents who have virtually unlimited resources. In these circumstances, Mr. Stoddard is comfortable. Mr. Stoddard provides his strongest efforts to his clients, and he devotes the Firm’s significant financial resources to presenting the strongest case possible on their behalf.
Keith N. Evra
Associate at Stoddard Firm
Worked for years defending high profile criminal cases which resulted in extensive trial experience and a hunger to fight for the underdog. Shifted focus from criminal work in 2015 and now represents those harmed by the negligence of others.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I have a case?
If you’ve been injured because of someone else’s negligence, you could have a personal injury case. Every situation is different, so there’s no way to know if you have a case without consulting with a qualified personal injury attorney. If you are badly injured or a loved one has died, we are happy to speak with you and investigate the matter at no charge.
What does negligence mean?
When someone fails to take reasonable care when performing a certain task, they are being negligent. The term might apply to drivers, apartment management companies, doctors, store owners, product manufacturers, or any other party that has a responsibility to behave or conduct themselves in a certain way. When someone is careless or reckless, they could be found negligent if their mistakes injured someone else, caused someone else harm, or caused the death of someone else.
How long does a lawsuit take?
Lawsuits can last as short as a few months to as long as a few years – it really depends on several different factors. To ensure your claim goes as quickly as possible, it’s best to consult an attorney and begin the process soon after an injury. After hearing the details of your case, an attorney might be able to give you a clearer picture of your case’s timeframe.
What do your services cost?
A consultation with the Stoddard Law Firm is free. In most circumstances, we earn no fee unless we win your case. If your claim is successful, we take a percentage of the recovered amount.
How much is my case worth?
There’s no way for us to know how much your case is worth until we hear the details of your case. Be wary of any lawyer who gives you an amount without first evaluating your case. After evaluating the facts, an attorney should be able to determine how much to seek in damages, i.e., the amount of compensation you are owed for your injuries.
