Practice Areas



For decades, Matonich Law has successfully represented individuals in medical malpractice cases. In 2011, the firm obtained the highest verdict in any malpractice lawsuit in Minnesota—23.2 million dollars. And since that time, we have continued to achieve excellent results for clients through trial and settlement.

Toughness and Compassion

Matonich Law attributes much of our success in medical malpractice cases to the skills we honed early in our careers, handling tough criminal defense cases, working on behalf of underprivileged individuals who were up against the resources of the state and federal governments. We are now committed to working with seriously injured individuals and families who are up against medical systems, corporations, and their insurance companies in medical malpractice and device cases.

No two cases are the same, and not every one results in a landmark victory. But each case we try is meaningful to us because it represents such a monumental moment in our clients’ lives. The legal process can seem intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be.


With offices in Minneapolis, Hibbing, and Grand Rapids, we are able to serve clients throughout Minnesota. And we have the resources needed to successfully take on the insurance industry in medical malpractice and device cases. We stand by our clients through every step of the process.


We welcome the opportunity to work with our colleagues who refer cases to us and provide referral fees, as allowed by Minnesota Rules.


Medical Malpractice

Medical negligence can be financially and emotionally devastating to individuals and families. It occurs when health professionals fail to live up to the standard of care that is expected of them, such as a failure to diagnose, emergency room errors, surgical errors, hospital negligence, birth injuries/labor complications, incorrect treatment, misdiagnosis, or other errors and negligence. Matonich Law accepts only those cases involving serious injury and culpability.

Although the complexity, expense, and duration of medical malpractice cases can be challenging, our firm possesses the proven experience and resources to successfully pursue them. We work closely with the most qualified medical experts to evaluate each case and prepare for trial.

As a result, we have obtained life-changing verdicts and settlements for our clients. We firmly believe that by bringing meritorious medical malpractice cases, our clients encourage medical providers to consider safer medical practices.

Medical Device Litigation

Matonich Law takes on difficult and complex medical device and drug litigation that often match a client against the resources of a major organization and its lawyers.

Certainly, a primary goal is to ensure that our clients are adequately compensated for their losses. But it is also important that we, together with our clients, promote reasonable and safe conduct on the part of manufacturers by holding them accountable for any defects in their products.

Medical-Related Wrongful Death

Pairing compassion with determination, we have successfully tried or settled multiple wrongful death cases resulting from medical malpractice. Matonich Law devotes substantial resources, coupled with decades of experience, to assure clients the best representation and settlements possible.
