"Mr. Crotty was beyond excellent with his handling and execution of my case and the two trials that it involved. He had a very difficult and challenging case that set precedent for all veterans across the US and was opposed by a counsel who used tactics that were less then above bar. His demeanor was fantastic throughout the case but the most impressive quality he has is his outstanding and dedicated work ethic. Mr. Crotty did not spare any time, cut corners or lower his standards for an easier and quicker solution that would have sacrificed an aspect of the case. Additionally his courtroom presence and speech and integrity is second to none. I was proud to have him represent me."

"Matt represented me on a shareholder derivative lawsuit against my investment company’s manager. Matt’s work resulted in the court finding that the investment manager breached his fiduciary duties and a resulting settlement of the case. I would recommend Matt on such cases in the future."
