Matt Lloyd joined his father, Bill, at the Lloyd Law Office in 2003 after graduating from law school. He has maintained a busy practice representing injured clients ever since.
Matt’s practice encompasses all manner of personal injury cases, including motor-vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, premises liability, and medical malpractice. But no matter what the case is, clients can be assured that they will receive the same personal attention from Matt, who places client service as a top priority in his day-to-day practice.
“The ‘personal touch’ is a theme of our practice,” he says. “We’re never going to compete with the mega-firm factories that promise the world to get the sign-up and then don’t really care what happens with the client after that. We give it a more personal touch—a more involved approach to each case and each client.”
To Matt, nothing in life is so enriching as assisting people in need.
“I like helping people who otherwise get pinched by the big insurance corporations with their armies of lawyers,” he says. “Most of my clients are folks who don’t have a lawyer living down their street and oftentimes have never had any kind of need for a lawyer.”
“I really like to go up against insurance companies and those with all the cash,” he adds. “It makes me feel good when I go home at night, knowing that I’ve helped.”
Matt’s emphasis on the personal touch carries over into the courtroom.
Matt believes that nothing is as important as thorough preparation when it comes to trying a case, but “I think that being genuine and having credibility is what really sells a case and an argument.”
“I think that genuineness and being authentic are what works in court better than anything. If jurors believe you and believe you’re trustworthy, that can get your far. If they believe you as a person and think you’re genuine, then they’re going to believe the story you’re telling is genuine.”
Away from the office, Matt enjoys spending time with his wife and two young sons, fly fishing, and woodworking. He’s a member of national, state, and county bar associations; the American Association for Justice; and the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association. He is admitted in all Indiana state courts, the U.S. District Court for the Northern and Southern Districts of Indiana, and the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
He earned a B.A. degree in economics, with honors, from Centre College in 1998 and received a J.D. and M.B.A. in 2003 after completing a joint program at the Indiana University’s Maurer School of Law and the Kelley School of Business.
