    Highly recommend Attorney Marin

    I hired Attorney Marin for a domestic vandalism charge and thanks to him, the case was dismissed. He also filed to have my records sealed the very same day. This was the best possible outcome and I'm so glad I chose him as my attorney! Highly recommended.

    doesn't need commercials , word of mouths is enough!

    I found myself in a bind within the court system and luckily I was able to find Mr. Matthew T. Marin , an outstanding person and lawyer, to represent me. Mr. Matthew T. Marin answered every question I had in a way that was simple for me to understand. He was available and easily reachable every time I needed him. After working hard on my case, Mr. Matthew T. Marin was able to resolve 2 serious cases I had received within a month while being out on bail . I had pending charges from assault and battery , destruction of property , drug possession and DUI that could have cost me some serious prison time. The case resulted in 10 hours of community service and court fines while every serious charge got dismissed! He's very professional and works hard and his firm is strong and confident and respected all over ! I recommend Mr. Matthew T. Marin ,due to his hard work, diligence and extensive knowledge of the law.

    Best criminal attorney in RI period.

    The best way to describe Matthew is: real, empathetic, transparent, upfront, honest, ethical, excellent communicator, unpretentious, professional, honest, well liked, sincere, optimistic, approachable. I didn't use good judgement in a domestic dispute and Matthew willingly prepared me and represented me, the same week. Frankly. He got me out of a very serious charge that would have been on my record and effected my income opportunities greatly. He produced options that where reasonable yet not devastating to my sensitive circumstances. I would not hesitate to recommend Matthew as anyone's criminal attorney.

    Best choice we could have made

    Totally clueless, never having to deal with any type of criminal charges, it was extremely agonizing trying to help my son in making the right decision on finding an attorney to represent him in his DUI case. After spending countless hours searching the Internet, and reading reviews, we hired Matt Marin. He was extremely quick to respond and very accessible when you had a question. He was very knowledgeable and professional. In fact, it seemed that other attorneys sought his advice in the court room. We have all the confidence in his abilities and trust him and his advice. Hopefully we will never need his services in the future, but if we did, there would be no question that we would go back to Matt Marin.

    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.
