"The best way to get results for our clients is to take each of their cases as unique entities and work them from the ground up. It is not our process to fit a case into a previous box to save the time or effort. Each case is analyzed with the mentality that it is the first case we have ever handled. This means we take nothing for granted and consider even the most fundamental elements, still utilizing our firm’s vast experience to tailor the best approach to each client’s case."

Words from clients
Mathew Flatow and Liz Vennum are by far the best attorneys anyone could ask for. They treated me like family and fought every day to get me a fair settlement. Their office is inviting and the entire staff is welcoming. The time and preparation they put into my case were remarkable and thanks to them I can move forward with my life. I highly recommend them to anyone needing counsel and I cannot thank them enough for turning my negative situation into a positive one.
"Mathew Flatow is a top-notch attorney. His professionalism and representation of me were outstanding, and led to a positive resolution of my case. His legal staff are also to be commended for their dedication and diligence. I highly recommend SeiferFlatow."
I own a 15 person construction company and was having trouble with a minority owner. Mathew went through our bylaws and corporate documents and found a way to remove the minority owner and get our company back on track. Truly impressed by his aggressive problem-solving. I will keep going back for my business issues. He really gets it. His staff is wonderful too. Good team over there.
