Matt R. Daigle
Matt Daigle is a civil litigation attorney focused on representing small businesses and individuals in commercial, real estate, employment, and professional liability matters.
Matt built his career working to put his clients in a better position than where they started while working to minimize costs when possible.
He has represented small businesses and individuals as general counsel and always focused on achieving positive, tangible results as efficiently as possible.
His approach has relied on more than fifteen years of litigation and trial experience which has helped him identify, evaluate, and address the issues his clients have faced in each unique case.
Matt has utilized his knowledge of litigation strategy to leverage negotiations and settlement discussions, and if negotiations failed, he was never hesitant to go to trial. Matt understands that there is a point at which diplomacy fails, and his clients’ cases must be put in the hands of the judge and jury. It is in these situations that Matt calls upon his many years of experience as a first and second chair trial lawyer to skillfully try the case.
His real estate, insurance, professional, and corporate clients, as well as each of their cases, are assured to receive attention to the smallest of details and the full weight of his experience and passion. This attention and effort requires each plaintiff to prove their claims, which ensures his clients will have the best chance at realizing a tangible, positive result.
