Posted by a Violent Crime client
Ms. Matthews is by far the worst attorney I have ever dealt with! To her credit, she is professional. On the flip side, she treated this client as if she were doing me a favor. She does not pay attention to detail. Furthermore, she was extremely condesending and arrogant. Ms. Matthews negotiated away the 6 felony charges she was provided with. One of these felonies was a Class B Felony which carries substantial jail time. I was informed, at the very last minute, I could provide a Victim Impact Statement. This is a significant lack of oversight in that Ms. Matthews earlier informed me I could not make such a statement. In my case, the criminal received a slap on the wrist.I subsequently have to live with the ruling of the court, which are in part due to the actions of an incompetent attorney, permanently. If you are smart, avoid Ms. Matthews at all costs!
