Summary

Matthew Turner is a senior shareholder with Sommers Schwartz, and focuses his practice on medical malpractice, legal malpractice, ERISA, and class action matters.

Fighting for and protecting the rights of his clients is the most important part of Matt’s profession. During law school, he was a law clerk for Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Richard Kuhn, and after graduation, he joined his family’s law firm where he litigated a broad range of matters involving business disputes, employment discrimination, dental malpractice, auto accident, slip and fall, and significant cases of death and catastrophic loss.

Matt has appeared before the United States Supreme Court, and prevailed in a 9-0 decision establishing precedent that has been followed throughout the country. He has argued a number of appeals before the Michigan Supreme Court, the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Michigan Court of Appeals. At the trial level, he obtained a verdict in excess of $1 million dollars in a medical malpractice case, and has secured a number of other highly successful trial verdicts and settlements.
