“My work comp case took a little while but the end result was successful. Every time I called with a question or needed someone, I got the help I needed. Having a greatly educated law team on my side made all of the difference.”
Craig W.
“My lawyers were always willing to talk to me. I was able to talk with BiState about my case with any question, and they never made me feel like a problem. Truly on my team.”
Ron G.
“No one ever wants to be hurt, but BiState helped me achieve the best possible outcome considering the situation. When I got my first offer to settle, Matt did a great job explaining why the insurance company wasn’t being fair and how much he thought the case was worth. At the same time, he made sure the choice was mine. BiState fought for every last penny, kept me consistently informed about the case and made sure everything went smoothly so I could focus on healing.”
Courtney A.
“I can’t imagine working with anyone other than Mr. Nagel and BiState. Not only did he make himself available whenever I needed him, but he took the time to thoroughly answer my questions and explain all of my options. His knowledge and communication skills are superb and as an added bonus, his personality and sense of humor made a very painful process much more bearable which my family and I so appreciate.”

Matt Nagel epitomizes what I look for in an attorney. He worked tirelessly to assist me as I navigated a situation with an insurance company, constantly communicating the steps he was taking in a clear and understandable way. He seeks feedback because he is the type of person that always strives to find a better way to accomplish a job. Give him a direction, or even an idea of a direction, and he will be sprinting towards an answer. Not only did he handle the delicate balance of personalities (doctors’ offices, insurance companies, etc.) involved with my case with the utmost professionalism, he also consistently kept the best interest of me in mind. If you are looking for someone that always delivers, is always open to feedback, and is constantly looking for ways to improve the process, Matt Nagel and BiState are your attorneys.
