  • Matt Zavala is a total gem!
    I just scanned the other reviews here and I have to say Yes Yes Yes - everyone is right! Matt Zavala is a total gem. He has been handling my claim from a rear ending that involved the at fault driver and three others besides myself. He has been consistently clear and helpful, handling all sorts of snags and detours involving the insurance companies, hospital, and so on. I can't imagine what a nightmare it would have been without his help. I am so appreciative and grateful. If you are looking for a personal injury lawyer in Ventura, look no more - you found him.

  • Excellent Litigation Skills
    Thanks Matt for your excellent litigation skills and experience that was able to close my case for a hit and run/ uninsured motorist claim. He worked with my insurance and handled the deposition like champion. So happy to have had him represent me. I will definitely recommend Matt & his team my family and friends. He was professional and an excellent communicator throughout the process.

  • The Best Kind of Attorney
    Mr. Zavala was one of the most thoughtful, patient, helpful people I've ever worked with.  I recommend you stop searching elsewhere and hire him.  Friendly, reasonable, and sharp, the best kind of attorney!

  • Seamless Process
    HIGHLY recommend! Matt helped me through the toughest time in my life. I got into a horrific, rollover accident on the freeway while two months pregnant! Matt worked on my case throughout my pregnancy, appointments, difficult birth, juggling life as a new mother, and working full time! I will be the first to admit that I wasn't easy - it would take me forever to respond to emails and I wasn't very helpful - BUT Matt really made the whole process SEAMLESS for me. He was working really hard behind the scenes and would involve me only if he needed to as I preferred it this way. I cannot thank him enough for taking care of such a tedious and painful process. SO glad we connected!

  • Thoughtful
    I called Mr. Zavala for advice about a business matter and even though what I was needing help with was outside of his scope, he referred me in the right direction. What was so impressive, though, was the thoughtfulness he put into my matter, even though I'm not an actual client. He actually spent the time to look over my contract and was fast with a follow-up email, and very sharp. Seems like a really great guy.

  • Sharp, Generous, and Helpful
    I found Matt on Yelp and gave him a call. At the time, he was booked with clients and unable to help with my exact situation. However, he spent ample time listening to my situation, showing empathy, and referring me to the right people to handle my case. I found him to be sharp, generous, and helpful. Thank you Matt, and keep fighting the good fight!

  • Creative Solutions
    Matt Zavala and I used to work together.  When I was injured in a car accident, Matt offered to help me pursue my claim.  The thought of turning over my claim to a typical personal injury attorney made me uncomfortable.  But turning over my claim to Matt, whose knowledge of the law and professionalism I could trust, was a no-brainer.  

    Matt was diligent in keeping me informed of the progress he was making.  There were a few unusual aspects of my claim, but Matt was able to craft creative solutions.  What stood out to me most, however, was that he never pressured me into selecting any specific option out of the various options which were available, even though some of the options could result in a higher financial gain for him.  Instead, he presented me with the options and explained the pros and cons of each in an unbiased way.

    Matt resolved my case efficiently, effectively, and to my total satisfaction.  I have already recommended Matt Zavala and Zavala Law to others and will happily do so again.

  • Family Oriented
    I can't think of a better, family-oriented, business-minded, diligent, thorough, and detailed-oriented representation for my case than Matthew Zavala. From the start of our business relationship, Matt was attentive to my well-being as well as my family's through our whole ordeal. Matt made everything as smooth as possible during a very stressful time. I will refer him to anyone looking for a fair and successful outcome.

  • Huge Help
    Matt Zavala was a HUGE help to me as I needed very immediate legal guidance on how to resolve a collection matter.  His turnaround time was quick, he laid out my options plainly, and he was candid and direct in his approach, which is how I like to do business.  What I also appreciated was how he explained things in layman's terms so I could understand exactly what was happening. I will go to Matt at Zavala Law first should the need ever arise again.

  • Relatable
    Matt Zavala helped me after a traffic accident I was in. He was able to help me navigate the many complexities of insurance, the law, and liability that should fall on the other person or on me.

    I spoke to several lawyers prior to going with Matt Zavalla. While many of the other lawyers seemed to be selling me on themselves Matt spoke to me in a more relatable and non-pushy manner. I was truly happy I chose to work with him.

    I went from unsure of how to proceed to have a better understanding of all facets of my case and its implications. He was able to breakdown more complicated ideas and assist me in making more well-informed decisions than I could have hoped to have done on my own.

    I recommend him to friends and family if they need a good lawyer.

  • Knowledgeable, Professional, Empathetic
    I was referred to Matt Zavala by a close family friend after my husband was in a serious motorcycle accident. Navigating the complexities of insurance and liability while my husband was in the hospital was a nightmare before Matt stepped into the picture. He was knowledgeable, professional, and empathetic during this very trying time. He helped steer us in the right direction (pursuing through insurance vs. litigation), making sure we knew all of our options and our best course of action, even with all of my "what if...?" questions. Thank you again, Matt, for your patience and guidance!

    If you have been in an accident and don't know where to start, Matt's your guy! Or even if you are experienced (I worked in insurance), Matt knows the nuances of this area of law like the back of his hand. I can't recommend him highly enough!

  • Really Listened
    I couldn't have asked for a better person to handle my case than Matt Zavala. He came highly recommended to me and am so happy I went with him to get me what I deserved. It was completely the other driver's fault but knew I needed help to make sure my medical bills would be covered as well. He was professional and really listened to my concerns and helped me through the process. Thanks, Matt! I will be referring you to anyone else I know.

  • Supportive and Helpful
    Zavala Law was the first law firm I reached out to when I got into my car accident on my trip to Ventura. It was a difficult time dealing with auto insurance companies and shady uninsured drivers, but Matt was very supportive and helpful throughout the entire process. He guided me the whole time from the beginning advising me what I needed to do since the other driver was at fault...to the very end where I got my car repaired good as new. Thank you, Matt. I really appreciate all the legal help and wisdom you shared.

  • Professional and Timely
    Matt Zavala was really very helpful to me during a dispute with my book publisher. He read through the contract and found places where my publisher was in abrogation of our contract. Matt helped me out of a bad situation in a very professional and timely way. I would recommend his services wholeheartedly.

  • Wholeheartedly Recommend
    Matt Zavala is not only an exceptional attorney but a great person. On a professional level, I couldn't be more satisfied with his assistance in handling my car accident (rear-ended on the 101 freeway while at a dead stop). Equally, if not, more importantly, I was blown away by Matt's care for my well-being. On a personal level, he helped guide me in the steps necessary to ensure my health and safety. It was important to him that I put my health first, take time to rest, and not worry about the logistics of my case; he assured me I was in good hands and that he would take care of things while I healed.

    I am very pleased not only with the outcome of my case but the service of this law firm. A good attorney is a totally valuable and rare commodity, in the same boat as a good mechanic and doctor. I wholeheartedly recommend Zavala Law to anyone searching for a trustworthy attorney who values the best interest of his clients and will go to bat for you.
