The Practice Areas Of Breeland Injury Law
Ready To Fight For The Compensation You Deserve
You may have no prior experience with lawyers or the legal system, but suddenly find yourself the victim of an accident because of someone else’s negligence. Attorney Matt Breeland knows that this is often a confusing and traumatic time and works with his clients so that they understand what to expect throughout the process.
Matt’s past experience working as a defense attorney in personal injury cases gives him unique insight that other attorneys may lack. Matt holds insurance companies accountable for all injuries that were sustained and any loss in quality of life caused by someone else’s carelessness.
A Lawyer Who Knows Both Sides Of Personal Injury
After spending the first part of his career defending personal injury cases, Matt knows how the other side works. In that role, Matt gained a unique and highly valuable perspective on the litigation tactics employed by insurance companies against those who fall victim to another person’s carelessness. In 2016, Matt had a calling to switch sides and begin representing Texas injury victims. Since then, he has worked exclusively as counsel to accident victims.

Outside of work, Matt is married to Austin realtor Leslie Breeland, who is also an attorney. Matt and Leslie met in law school and now have two young children, a boy and a girl, and a pug named Jerome (who spends most of the day at Matt’s feet or on his lap). The Breeland family helps keep Austin weird and fun. Matt’s interests include cooking for his friends and family, rooting for the Texas Longhorns, and trying to stay fit. He successfully completed the Austin Marathon without stopping or walking (just don’t ask him how long it took him). He is also a movie buff who previously served as a film screener for the SXSW Film Festival.
