Posted by Ted A. Schmidt | Apr 15, 2022 | 0 Comments

AZ Injury Law partner Matt Schmidt is extremely active in our Tucson, Arizona community as a coach, mentor, volunteer, philanthropist, and local leader.

Empower Coalition - whose mission is to improve lives in the greater Tucson community by empowering charitable organizations with resources necessary to carrying out their missions - is one of the charitable causes that is close to Matt's heart and he has been instrumental in helping raise awareness and funds for local charities than need it most.

An active Board Member and recently named Chair of the 2023 Tucson Beefsteak - a local fundraising event organized by the Empower Coalition  that has raised over $800,000 to benefit outstanding local non-profit organizations that support Veterans and military families - Matt has helped organize the efforts that pulled together and matched major donations that directly contribute to our local veterans' community and support several different initiatives and programs.

In their continued effort to make an impact on our community, Matt and the Empower Coalition had the recent honor to present checks totaling $70,000 to seven worthwhile organizations who make the world a better place for the men and women who serve us.

About the Author

Ted A. Schmidt

Ted's early career as a trial attorney began on the other side of the fence, in the offices of a major insurance defense firm. It was there that Ted acquired the experience, the skills and the special insight into defense strategy that have served him so well in the field of personal injury law. Notable among his successful verdicts was the landmark Sparks vs. Republic National Life Insurance Company case, a $4.5 million award to Ted's client. To this day, it is the defining case for insurance bad faith, and yet it is only one of several other multi-million dollar jury judgments won by Ted during his career. He is certified by the State Bar of Arizona as a specialist in "wrongful death and bodily injury litigation".
