When you have been seriously injured, or are facing criminal charges that could land you behind bars, you can’t afford to waste any time.
You need an experienced attorney who understands the legal system, can anticipate the challenges you may face, and isn’t afraid to take your case to trial to uphold your rights.
At The Matera Law Firm, we offer our clients representation that is backed by extensive experience that includes time serving as assistant district attorneys at the Bronx County District Attorney’s Office and the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office.
As former prosecutors, we know how the other side of the courtroom is going to be looking at our clients’ cases. Further, that trial experience has allowed us to generate positive results for all of our clients over the years.
As trial lawyers, we know how to present a strong and compelling case, whether through negotiation or taking the case all the way through trial. Insurance companies also know us, and they know that we will not settle for less than a case is worth. This allows us to negotiate from a position of strength, and has helped us obtain millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients.

Phones calls were always returned PROMPTLY and personally by Michaelangelo or the office staff. I HIGHLY recommend the Matera Law Firm.
Mr. Matera has helped me in my case that got dismissed. Matera was also successful in my car accident case I had. He always answered all my calls and any questions I had. Matera is an aggressive lawyer, very professional and polite. Thank you for everything.
My needs were put first by Mike Matera and his team, was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. He fought hard to ensure a great outcome. Couldn’t have asked for a better law firm or attorney.
My total experience with the firm was excellent, from the first placed call to the office and then with Mr. Matera. I was treated with kindness & concern. Most importantly, I was treated with respect. The staff of the firm are very polite, competent and they work fast! I was treated not just as a client, but as a friend, taking the time to often update on the case, or just to say hello. In my opinion, nothing needs to change. I was very pleased and satisfied with my choice of this law firm.
I was severely injured in a car accident and unable to work. It was one of the worst experiences of my life. I never thought that I would find such a compassionate and selfless human being as my attorney, Michael Matera. He has gone far beyond what I could have expected. He is always there to pick up my call or text back at any time when I needed his guidance. It is rare that you find an attorney that is truly there for his client and not just the compensation. If you are the victim of an accident, Michael Matera is there for all of your legal needs and will do what ever is possible to get what is fair and due to you.
Michael Matera is awesome he puts the right time and effort into your case and doesn’t do it just because that’s his job he does it because he genuinely cares . Matera is a great person and I’ve recommended him to several people and he of course won their cases. I would recommend Matera to just about anybody . I promise you won’t regret choosing him.
