We represent plaintiffs through all aspects of litigation, including initial negotiations to court filings, motion practice, court hearings and appearances, and jury trial.
POLICE BRUTALITY and POLICE MISCONDUCT
At times, police and other law enforcement abuse their authority and engage in misconduct inclusive of excessive force, excessive deadly force, false arrests and imprisonment, racial profiling, etc. When it does occur, we fight to restore justice to those who have been wrongfully denied it.
Not only can your rights be violated by law enforcement, but they can be and some times are violated by other governmental agencies such as schools. When your rights are violated, we will represent you to restore justice under the laws of the land.
Whether another person or a company has wronged or injured you by acts of negligence, recklessness or intentional conduct, we take on these cases to obtain just compensation for our clients.
Defamation is reprehensible, intentional conduct. When someone purposefully lies about you to ruin your personal or business reputation, you need representation to obtain compensation for your damages and to punish the defamer to restore your reputation and dignity.
We know how devastating it is to lose a loved one to negligent acts or unreasonable violence. When someone wrongfully kills a relative or close loved one, we represent the interests of immediate relatives and of the decedent under the law.
The Iverson Matthew Jackson Law Firm, PC is dedicated to representing people who have been wronged, injured or suffered damages by the hands of others, whether the "other" is a person, a company or a governmental agency. Too many times the people who have suffered at the hands of others have been ignored or silenced, and our job is to help you find your story and voice. We magnify your story and voice to the decision makers - the court and the jury - who will ultimately make the decisions that will effect your life and livelihood. As such, it is important to present your story and voice effectively so that the right decisions can and will be made to maximize your recovery.
We have successfully represented people from all walks of life - citizens and foreigners, poor or wealthy, blind or deaf - and we take pride in our clients and their cases. Now, as ever, this is no time for hatred or bigotry, or to allow others to suffer unreasonably and unfairly without making our collective voices heard and doing something about it.

I dreamed of becoming an attorney at the young age of 5 in first grade after watching several lawyer shows on television of the time. I imagine I thought it was exciting to fight for others in our judicial system - what we call the "great equalizer." I prayed for many things throughout my life, and becoming a lawyer was one of them. When it became a reality in 2003 after passing the Ohio bar, I cried and thanked God. In 2011, when I received the news that I passed the California bar, I cried again and thanked God immensely. They were tears of joy, of course.
I am grateful for all of the people, including my parents, relatives, friends, teachers, mentors, colleagues and even clients, that have helped me in one way or another to be who I am today. None of us can make it alone, and I certainly have not. It is important to recognize them all for their contributions, small and large, long and short term, it all made a significant difference.
Since the age of 13, I worked outside of the home following my parents' example doing various jobs (i.e. stock boy, cashier, dishwasher, garbage man, shoe salesman, etc.), which helped me build character and taught me the value of a day's work and a dollar. At times during my undergraduate education in Cincinnati, Ohio I held 3 jobs at once, and at times some people fought on my behalf when I needed it. As such, I do not take for granted the things that I have been able to accomplish or the things that my clients have lost due to someone else's choices and acts. Those experiences are part of the reason I decide to fight for others. It is part of the reason I will continue to fight until I can no longer fight.
Over the span of my career thus far, I have had the privilege of working with and learning from some of the best and brightest attorneys in the United States. As an example out of many, in the summer of 2012, I was also blessed with the opportunity to attend and graduate from the renowned Trial Lawyers College at the urging of a good friend. So this is in recognition of them, too. As a result of those experiences, and those of my own, I bring a collective of knowledge, talents, skills and tactics to bear in the representation of my clients to achieve justice and a semblance of peace. I recognize that those experiences and skills that I learned helped me to recover multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of my clients. I hope to be just as an effective tool in that aspect as long as I can. Therefore, if you have been hurt, injured or violated under the law, I hope that you will allow me to represent you to get you the justice and peace you deserve, also.
