Having worked in the workers’ compensation industry since 2001, it is safe to say that Attorney Matt Fendon knows a thing or two about delivering high-quality legal representation. It is because of this that he was recently named a 2015 Rising Star℠ by Super Lawyers®. This honor is indicative of all that Matt has accomplished over the years and his undeniable talent as a workers’ compensation attorney.
What is the Rising Stars℠ List?
Each year, Super Lawyers® releases a list of carefully selected attorneys who are among the best of the best in their particular field. In order to be eligible for inclusion, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. Inclusion is especially admirable as no more than 2.5 percent of licensed attorneys in any given state are named to the Rising Stars list.
Candidates are selected in one of two ways: either through peer nomination or through identification by the research department during the research process. Nominations are given point-values and can help a candidate move closer to the final selection phase.
After being nominated, each candidate is then carefully evaluated based on 12 different factors that have to do with professional achievement. These 12 factors include:
- Position within law firm
- Pro bono and community service
- Special licenses/certifications
Since Matt graduated from law school in 2008, he has obtained numerous achievements. He is a member of the list of The National Trial Lawyers®: Top 40 Under 40 and maintains a “Superb” rating on Avvo. Matt is a member of many organizations, including the Workers’ Injury Law & Advocacy Group and the Arizona Trial Lawyers Association.
Matt dedicates the majority of his practice toward workers’ compensation law, but spends some time representing those faced with Social Security Disability and employment law matters. He is passionate about pursuing justice for individuals injured in the workplace and works tirelessly on behalf of each client he represents.
This distinction from Super Lawyers® sets Matt apart from others in his field and inspires confidence in his clients. If you are in need of a dedicated workers’ compensation lawyer in Phoenix, turn to Fendon Law Firm, P.C. Contact us today for your free consultation!
