Matthiesen, Wickert & Lehrer, S.C. (“MWL”) is pleased to welcome Matthew M. Spolsky, a new litigation associate, to the firm. Matt has been employed with MWL for the past two and a half years, serving as a hearing representative in our California office. He has been carrying a heavy caseload of claims and appearing before the California Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board (“W.C.A.B.”) on behalf of healthcare service plans seeking reimbursement from workers’ compensation carriers in pending claims. He studied for and took the difficult California State Bar Exam while working at MWL and was sworn in on January 15, 2021. Matt brings with him a wealth of administrative workers’ compensation experience with the W.C.A.B. and will now be handling additional subrogation cases throughout California.
Matt is a graduate of the University of California-Irvine and Western State College of Law in Irvine. His experience includes working as a judicial extern for Hon. Nathan Scott in the Orange County Superior Court as well as a clerking experience with a number of southern California law firms.
When Matt is not managing his caseload, he enjoys riding mountain bikes in the hills of California, cycling along the coast, surfing different beaches, and trying coffee in new places along the way. Matt also enjoys fishing with his girlfriend in Northern California. Matt loves sports as well and is looking forward to attending hockey, baseball, and football games once life can return to normal!
Matt will primarily be handling workers’ compensation lien matters, property and casualty, workers’ compensation, and automobile subrogation cases throughout California and across the country. He believes strongly in preparation to uncover and aggressively pursue subrogation potential on behalf of a client. Matt’s understanding of the workers’ compensation case in chief will provide welcome assistance to the subrogation practice here at MWL. We look forward to the vast amount of experience and insight Matt brings to the firm, and eagerly welcome him to our growing family of subrogation professionals here at MWL. On behalf of the partners, associates, legal assistants, and support staff here at MWL, we would like to welcome Matt. We would also invite our clients and friends to introduce themselves to Matt, who can be reached at [email protected].
