Paradigm Magazine: Feature Story on Matt & Menzer Law

Growing up as the youngest of four kids, Matt Menzer learned the importance of compassion early on. His middle brother suffered from an extremely rare genetic disorder that few understood at the time, and his father worked hard to raise awareness and funding to advocate for afflicted children and their families.

By the time Matt entered the U.C. Berkeley School of Law, this sense of compassion, coupled with a strong desire to help others, was deeply embedded in his character. These same traits later formed the foundation for Menzer Law, which reporter Tom Kirvan brings to life in the lead story appearing in the Sept. 2022 issue of Paradigm magazine. In addition to highlighting Matt’s legal approach for representing those harmed by medical malpractice and/or a serious personal injury, Kirvan interviews several clients who provide an up-close-and-personal overview of what it’s like to work with, and be represented by, Matt and Menzer Law.
