Matt Aerni

Berry Law Attorney Since 2007

Husband, Father, Woodworker, Attorney at Berry Law

Matt Aerni fights for your interests in insurance disputes.  He worked for several years on the other side of the battle and now uses that knowledge to put individuals ahead of insurance companies when pursuing a personal injury claim. His years as an insurance adjustor gave him unique insight into how insurance companies put their own interest ahead of yours, and provided him with a unique toolset to beat them at their own game. He saw firsthand how they do whatever they can to reduce the amount they pay to injured parties and changed careers to use that knowledge to help fight for those who do not have the resources to fight themselves.

Matt takes great pride in his work and helping clients take back control of their life after a serious injury. He stands shoulder to shoulder with clients throughout their case, providing them with the legal support they need to hold negligent parties and insurance companies accountable. When he represents you, you can rest assured he will be there to fight your battle. As a former client put it: “I trusted Matt Aerni and he walked this journey with me side by side. Never did I feel I was in this situation alone.”

Dedication to His Other ‘Crafts’

When he’s not battling insurance companies and protecting his clients’ best interest, Matt spends his spare time doing a variety of activities. He is an avid outdoorsman and homebrewer. Matt is also a well-respected woodworker and has built a large collection of wooden pieces. In fact, he has even been known to craft custom gifts for clients after helping them win the compensation they deserve. Matt is also a proud father and husband. He and his wife enjoy raising their children here in Lincoln.
