Matthew Dake was very knowledgeable and helpful in my Workers Comp case. He was always just a phone call away if I had questions or concerns. You only get one chance at it you don’t want a rookie and Matt understands life.

Loren Gritton | Workers Compensation

Far exceeded my expectations. When I first talked to Tony Olson, I felt very comfortable and on the same page that we could get the outcome I wanted. As the next few days/weeks went by I felt better about my lawsuit. I was getting the updates I wanted and just an overall sense that my case was being moved forward to the front of the pile of the defense team. Nothing but good words for Tony Olson at Rush & Nicholson! Thank you!
