Our Maui Office
Maui is the second-largest of the islands of Hawaii. The County of Maui is comprised of four islands, including Maui, Molokaʻi, and Lānaʻi.
Menzer Law Firm’s Maui office is located at the David K. Trask, Jr. Office Building at 2145 Kaohu Street, Suite 203A in Wailuku. We represent injured people and their families throughout the County of Maui and the State of Hawaii.
Bringing Years of Experience to Maui
After graduating from Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California at Berkeley, Matt served as a Judicial Law Clerk for the Honorable Alan C. Kay of the United States District Court for the District of Hawaii in Honolulu. Matt then worked as a lawyer for the Hawaii law firm of Lowenthal, August & Graham which had its main office in Wailuku, Maui.
Matt moved from Maui to Seattle, Washington. After practicing as a partner in the litigation law firm of McNaul Ebel, he formed Menzer Law Firm in 2002 to specialize in complex personal injury litigation, including medical malpractice and nursing home negligence cases. Since 2002, Matt has continued to actively represent Hawaiians through his long-time associations and “Of Counsel” relationships with the Law Offices of Philip H. Lowenthal, and more recently, Lowenthal and Lowenthal, in Wailuku. For the last thirty years, Matt has litigated significant, high-value personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice and complex business and intellectual property disputes for clients on Maui, Oahu, Kauai and the island of Hawaii. During this time, Matt has also represented many people from Hawaii who are injured in Washington while on vacation or business travel. By launching a second office on Maui, Matt hopes to help more people from Hawaii with his extensive experience and knowledge and to better share his personalized approach to representing injured persons and their families.
Matt is a graduate of Brown University and the UC Berkeley School of Law. He completed two prestigious federal judicial clerkships and practiced in large law firms in New York City and Seattle. He is one of only a few lawyers in Hawaii and Washington State to be admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims where vaccine injury claims are decided. Over the last three decades, Matt has practiced throughout Hawaii in numerous state and federal courts and he has the knowledge, experience, and resources to successfully take on the most complex personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice, and nursing home negligence claims.
Comprehensive Personal Injury Representation
Matt and his team at Menzer Law Firm are available to represent the people of Maui and all neighbor islands who have been injured due to the negligence or misconduct of others. They are highly experienced in representing adults and children who have been seriously injured in cars and trucks, on bicycles and motorcycles, and as pedestrians. Matt has also represented many people who are the victims of animal attacks, sports injuries, and assaults.
Matt is especially passionate about helping victims of medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, and elder abuse. Patients should be able to trust their doctors, hospitals, nurses, and pharmacists to provide the highest levels of care. Nursing home residents and the elderly need to be safe where they live. Seniors should be able to trust and rely on their caretakers, whether they are employees or family members.
Matt has acquired extensive legal and medical knowledge over the years that allows him to successfully litigate these complicated cases to a successful conclusion.
A Skilled Litigator
Not all personal injury lawyers in Hawaii are ready and able to take your case to court. In fact, many firms focus on obtaining early settlements. Matt has many years of trial experience. He is not afraid to file a lawsuit against the responsible parties and to take your case to trial if that is what is needed to obtain full and fair compensation for you.
Matt’s willingness to file lawsuits on behalf of his clients and his ability to take an aggressive and thorough approach to the investigation and discovery phases of the case enables him to gain all available leverage against uncooperative insurance companies and defendants for advantageous settlements. When a fair settlement is not forthcoming, Matt is ready to fight for your full compensation at trial.
A Personalized Team Approach
Matt believes in being actively involved in each of his cases from the very beginning to the final resolution. To provide such a high level of attention and service for his clients, he intentionally limits the number of cases that he and his team work on at any time. You will never feel like your case is being handled by staff personnel. You will have the benefit of Matt and his complete team working together on your behalf. And in addition to the lawyers working on your case, you will have the benefit of the numerous skilled and successful investigators, expert witnesses, and other professionals that Matt has come to know and work with over the last 30 years.
