Excellent to work with. Very professional and worked with me in a timely manner. I was very satisfied and would recommend others to him. Was extremely pleased with the quality of work!
Matt Kilgo did a great job representing me. He always made me feel like an important client. He returned phone calls quickly and was very thorough. he's a friendly guy who does a great job.
When I first got my DUI I was scared and had no idea what I was going to do, I had never been in any kind of trouble. When I first sat down with Matt he reassured me that he would take extremely good care of my case. Ever since that first meeting, that weight that was baring down on me from the time I was released on bond has been lifted. While my case is still pending, Matt stays on top of the status of my case. He is always energetic when talking with me about my options and is straight forward with all the possible outcomes of my case.
I interviewed other Attorney's before deciding that Matt was the best Attorney for me. I did not get the same energetic and enthusiastic vibe from them. They made me feel like I was just another client in a sea of other DUI clients and that my best interest was not worth fighting for.
On a personal note, Matt has an awesome sense of humor and even though I am going through a serious matter, he has manage to make me laugh and have a positive outlook on this. I made a mistake but it doesn't have to cost me the rest of my life.
I spoke with several attorneys prior to retaining Mr. Kilgo, and I am glad I didn't make a hasty decision. I've found that many attorneys are much better at selling their service than they are at managing your ongoing case. Mr. Kilgo "sold his service" by taking the time to understand my circumstances and concerns, and then by explaining, in an easy to understand way, what my options were.
Not once did I have to contact Mr. Kilgo to find out what the status of my case was. He was very proactive in keeping me informed. This attribute was very important to me since I was from out of state. Mr. Kilgo managed my case without me having to return to the state one time.
I would strongly recommend Mr. Kilgo to anyone in need of guidance in his area of expertise. His level of compassion and professionalism was very comforting during this difficult time.
Matt Kilgo is a lawyer that will fight to the end to get your case settled in the result that you are looking for. Mr.Kilgo represented me in a DUI case in Bartow County and from the first time of speaking and meeting him, I knew I chose the right lawyer. Matt is a clean cut, well dressed and well spoken lawyer who took the time to go over my case, weighed all of my options, provided excellent feedback and knowledge but most of all treat me like a person/client and not a dollar sign.
My case lasted from 11/08 til 9/09 and Mr. Kilgo showed up to court on time and sat with me for hours in the courthouse until my case was called. In the end, Matt had my case dropped due to lack of evidence and the DUI charge was dropped and I was able to keep my driving privledges even though I refused to blow for alcohol blood levels.
Matt was truly a blessing during my case being that it was the first time I was arrested for DUI and was scared that it would ruin my life. Matt calmed my nerves by informing me on his stratagy, the most up to date status on my case as he got them, and always returned my calls and being there for me when I had doubts about the case. Not every lawyer would do this and thats why I highly reccomend Matt.
In closing, I just want to say that I was a REAL client of Mr. Kilgo's and that I wasn't paid to give this review nor am I an employee of his. When I came accross this site and saw Mr. Kilgo, I had to stop and give him an excellent review for the great job he did for me. Matt Kilgo is the lawyer to choose when looking for a great lawyer, I promise you won't be disappointed! E.K
