  • Eric A Shore

    I strongly endorse this lawyer. Some divorce lawyers will battle over every little issue and then hand their clients a bill to cover their time. Matt is a different. He actually cares about his clients and helps them to understand when it will not be worth their while to fight over petty matters. He can help you focus on the big picture and keep your legal bills reasonable.
