    Recommend to anyone

    I would easily 100% recommend Matthew for any of your needs. I spoke with him just a week before my hearing and he outlined every possible scenario to me in a way I'd understand. I was facing a serious license suspension but Matthew was able to to wipe that away and ended up just paying a fine. VERY professional and VERY effective!

    Recommend 100%

    I highly recommend hiring Matthew Marin as your lawyer. Everything was handled in a timely and professional manner. I had two domestic charges and my DUI charge (criminal) dismissed by pleading guilty to refusing to take a chemical test (civil) which resulted in the minimal penalty. I had the best possible outcome I could have without having to go to trial and I am in the process of having this expunged. I am extremely happy with my results!

    Marin is a professional, effective attorney

    I would recommend Matthew Marin to friends and family, and I keep his number in case I ever need to call him again.

    Throughout my courtroom proceedings, I observed that other attorneys often seemed to be too slick for their own client’s good. However, in the courtroom, Matt comes off like he’s a hard-working, son-of-Providence type, who cares about the law as much as judges do—he had the best rapport with the courtroom staff of anyone I saw in any of the courtrooms—and the judges seemed visibly pleased by the merits of his arguments or by their mutual frustration with badly-written law. Additionally, the prosecutors seemed to appreciate his work ethic and understanding of the law as well. Thus, I believe that judges and prosecutors immediately perceive the merit of Mr. Marin’s arguments as credible, reasonable, and without cynicism—from the start.

    Multiple police reports reported that I had performed terribly on several field sobriety tests immediately after driving, and then subsequently, according to their reports, these police determined that I refused a chemical test. The police also claimed I had gotten into an accident and badly damaged my car. However, the car's damage happened to it previously. I contacted a couple attorneys after these events and went with Mr. Marin because I perceived him to be a hard-working attorney. Another attorney had a messy office, seemed too slick, and was already proposing plea-bargaining with me—without hearing my story in which I felt that I was innocent of these charges.

    In my case, Matt made no promises throughout the process, but ultimately won for me what we both agreed was the best case scenario without going to trial: I was up against a criminal DUI charge, which was dismissed. Matt was willing to go to trial to fight to have me acquitted, but we both agreed that it wasn’t worth it, for me, to have a trial that could potentially take more than a year (because of our particular argument being a badly-written law) and open me up for the criminal charge in which multiple police officers would have been presented as witnesses against me. The risk to my otherwise clean record was too great. So, with my agreement, I accepted the refusal charge in a traffic tribunal and thereby, mandatorily by law, lost my license for six months, 35 hours community service, DUI school, and around $1,000 in fines. However, this agreement effectively cleared me of the criminal DUI charge. Thus, I still have a clean criminal record. Mr. Marin also successfully argued for all records of the case to be sealed and all police records to be ordered destroyed.

    Best Attorney in RI

    I can't say enough about Mr. Marin. From start to finish of my disorderly conduct charge, Mr. Marin was proactive in keeping me informed, preparing a defense and even going so far as to getting it expunged. His professionalism and trustworthiness is only surpassed by his knowledge and expertise. Mr. Marin is THE person you always want to have on your side should you ever need legal representation. I can't thank him enough for getting my case not only dismissed, but expunged.

    Expungement Case.....AMAZING!

    Mr. Marin did an excellent job with my husband's case. We contacted him in order to handle an expungement case and to have all records removed from federal databases in order for my husband to apply to police academy. We live in Texas which we thought would make this a difficult process. We were pleasantly surprised when we hired Mr. Marin and he took care of everything. He even hand delivered the expunged case to attorney general to get them to remove information. He also sent us the money back the court did not charge of $100. We would highly suggest if you are looking for a lawyer to look no further than Mr. Marin.

    DUI 1st Offense

    I was arrested under suspicion of DUI a few months ago. After meeting with Matt he was able to work a deal with the prosecutors to allow me to plead guilty to a lesser civil charge. The criminal DUI charge was dismissed and expunged from my record. Matt was excellent walking through every step of the process. He does a thorough job reviewing the case files and speaking with prosecutors to come to the best possible resolution.

    Exemplary Work

    I met Matthew in his offices to discuss my options in facing a DUI and Refusal to Submit to a Breathalyzer charges. He kept me calm and reassured throughout, and gave me a thorough list of my options. He was professional, spelled everything out clearly, and his rate for taking my case was quite reasonable and covered all his work from start to finish. I hired him on the spot, and everything proceeded exactly as he planned. The end result was favorable to me in every way, including an eventual full expungement of my criminal record. Matthew knows his way through the system, and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    Look no further for an attorney!!!

    I recently had a misdemeanor case and I had a great experience with Mr. Marin. I felt very confident from the first day I spoke to him at his office. An amazingly bright expert in law he made me feel secure and I believed I had the right professional on my side. I saw his powerful competence in every step of the process. Mr. Marin was a deep analyst and great strategist. He always was ahead and aware of what's coming and made the right decision. Always he communicated with me on time with an admirable patience and unique simplicity. His intelligent way of thinking, followed by a very practical and precise strategy brought my case to a dismissal. Mr. Marin is a very smart, well known professional that treated my case not as an outsider. He dedicated himself to my case and comforted me. It was a real pleasure working with an outstanding attorney like Mr. Marin. I will be grateful to him for the rest of my life. Thanks Mr. Marin! I very strongly recommend Mr. Matt Marin to everyone.
