Testimonials

  • S.D. Wichita, Kansas

    I hired a Wichita lawyer to handle an injury claim. I fired him a year later because he didn't return my telephone calls and hadn't done anything on my case. After hiring Bretz Law Offices everything changed, and I started getting personal attention. My medical bills got paid. My wages got reimbursed, and the case got settled. Bretz Law Offices is the one to call if you have a serious accident.
  • K.T. Lyons, Kansas

    After my husband died in a motorcycle accident, the insurance company tried to blame him for the collision. But after I turned to Bretz Law Offices for help, the insurance company was forced to pay their policy limits to settle my claims. If you have been injured, call Matt Bretz.
  • W.F.Hutchinson, Kansas

    Before I hired Matt Bretz, the insurance company offered $20,000 to settle my wife's claim. Matt Bretz and Melinda Young took the case to trial and got a verdict of over $500,000.00. Pretty good decision on my part.
