Attorney Matthew Bedikian Smiling

Growing up in Michigan, I always felt like I identified with the individuals who were labeled the underdog. I've always had a strong desire to help those in need, and defend those who may not be able to defend themselves. I also grew up with a strong interest and passion for the law, specifically because there was such a redeeming quality about a profession that worked to restore order and justice in society — essentially leveling the playing field for all of the underdogs out there.

When I decided to attend college at Michigan State University, I decided to study business and pre-law. Originally I thought that I might want to go into business for myself, but after taking a few pre-law classes, I quickly realized that going into the law profession would offer me the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself. After graduating from Michigan State University in 2007, I was quickly accepted into the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. It was there that I learned the importance of hard work, and how a commitment to learning the law could prove to be a valuable asset that could help me better serve my community.

I believe that every victim deserves to have their case heard. My job is to build you a strong offense so your story can be heard and together, we can seek the justice you deserve.


Finally, in 2011 I received my Juris Doctor from the Detroit Mercy School of Law and worked hard to pass the Michigan bar that same year. Armed with a license to practice law across the great state of Michigan, I originally signed on with a local firm where I could begin to pick up valuable experience as one of the firm's leading personal injury attorneys. Over the next three years, I was able to gain extensive knowledge and experience representing clients on a variety of different injury cases. I was even offered the opportunity to litigate some high-value cases that enabled me to help my clients receive compensation that could help ease the pain and suffering they were going through.

Eventually, I decided to open my own firm so that I could personally manage my own caseload and better serve my clients with a more personalized approach. So in 2014, I opened the doors to the Michigan Advocacy Center, a firm designed to focus solely on personal injury cases. In the four years since I started the firm, I've made it my mission to provide the highest level of legal counsel and representation to those who have been victimized by the negligent actions of someone else. I believe that every client deserves to have their story heard, and I fight hard to make sure my clients receive fair compensation that can help them recover from their injuries and get their life back on track. Because that's what originally drew me to this line of work — fighting for those who may not be able to fight for themselves.
