  • Christopher Alan Grace

    I've known Matt for almost 20 years. He is a taleneted, thoughtful, and extremely bright person. He is also an exceptional attorney with a terrific ability to communicate not only to judges but to his clients. Any client should be thankful if Matt takes their case. He just simply wins.
