I recently received a summons to a clerk hearing due to an alleged criminal automobile offense. Having no prior experience with the legal system, I was very anxious and was literally losing sleep over this matter. Russell was patient and understanding, he calmed me down and talked me through what he thought were the likely outcomes of the case. He clearly has a lot of experience dealing with Massachusetts courts. Our hearing was successful, largely because of Russell's efforts to negotiate with the insurance company beforehand, and his knowledge of proper behavior under such circumstances. His assistant, Maryellen, was also very responsive and pleasant, making me feel at ease. I would recommend his services without hesitation to anyone with traffic-related legal issues.

I hired attorney Mattson regarding a hit and run property damage charge , I have a prior cwof'ed oui so was facing potential serious charges. I was so worried about the potential consequences, both himself and his secretary were so helpful, never ignored my calls and it ended up being dismissed at the clerks hearing, he even worked with my insurance company . In my eyes he's not just a great lawyer but a hero .

An absolutely first-rate lawyer. Russ and his assistant, Mary Ellen, always took the time to answer all of my questions, no matter how trivial they seem in hindsight. My particular case was dismissed at the Clerk Magistrate's hearing, as if the incident never even happened at all. Preserving a clean record was of the utmost importance, and I could not have asked for a better outcome than what Russ achieved. If you have a criminal matter and want the peace of mind knowing that you will have the best representation possible, don't hesitate for a second to hire him!

RUSS IS BY FAR WORTH HIS FEE. HIS KNOWLEDGE GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND ANY OTHER ATTORNEY THAT I TALKED TO BEFORE I HIRED HIM. I WAS FACING 3RD DUI AND I AM A NURSE AND COULD NOT AFFORD TO GO TO JAIL FOR 6 MONTHS. RUSS GOT ME WEEKENDS AT SMCC MINIMUM WOMENS IN FRAMINGHAM ALSO I RECEIVED NO PROBATION. I WAS ABLE TO CONTINUE WORKING AND DO MY CONSEQUENCES ON THE WEEKENDS. THAT WAS SUCH A GIFT. IT IS 2 YEARS LATER AND I AM CLEAN AND SOBER THANK RUSS

Russ is very professional, and thorough. He went into great detail to explain the pros and cons of various approaches, and his instinct and knowledge of the DUI process in our court system is admirable. I was comfortable with incremental steps we took, and with the final (positive)result of our case. He is a no nonsense, trustworthy, and bright attorney who will well represent his client throughout the whole journey
