I was charged with three felony charges related to check fraud. Eric used his expert knowledge to help resolve the charges with one day of jail served on the day that I surrendered myself to have charges filed. The three charges were resolved with conv-cte, Noll pros. And the third charge as No Action. If convicted of all three charges, I would have faced about ten years in jail. Needless to say, I am quite pleased to have this resolved and behind me having served less than a day in jail. Eric is a great lawyer. Communications through out the process were extraordinarily.
Eric was confident that would be resolved favorably and indeed it was.
In a stressful and confusing time Eric was like a breeze of fresh air. He made everything very clear and easy to understand and always kept me up to date with any changes. He was also available to talk to whenever I had any questions. I would definitely use his services again if needed and recommend him to anyone. He truly is a fantastic lawyer.
My son got into alittle trouble while on spring break in Florida. He received a 6 month program. My son has no criminal record and he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He completed his 6 month program, so we wanted to get his record clean again. We didn't know how. We contacted a few attorneys in Florida and Mr. Matheny was a "god sent". He explained what we needed to do, what he would do for my son and how long the process would be. Well Mr. Matheny stayed in contact with us at every thing he did. My son's record is expunged and we as a family are extremely grateful for great work he did for my family and most important my son. Also we live in New Jersey and communicated via phone and mail only. Mr. Matheny is OUTSTANDING!!! Thank you
When in a situation should you need the services of a criminal attorney, Eric Matheny is everything you need in these trying times!
Eric knows his way around the various S. FL courtrooms and the judges, prosecutors, etc. In my opinion and that of others in the legal profession, this is imperative and extremely helpful.
Eric definitely was able to achieve a great result.
Another critical attribute of Eric's is his accessibility...better than ANY attorney in any field of expertise, not just criminal when it happens to matter the most. He takes phone calls IMMEDIATELY...even if you just have questions or want updates. If you don't try calling Eric, Eric is calling you, unprompted, just to keep you informed.
We could go on and on with reasons why we HIGHLY RECOMMEND Eric Matheny but feel this provides anyone with all they need to know to make an educated decision for yourself.
We retained Eric to represent us concerning a claimed "battery of a Police office" by my wife. He was diligent and responsive. As we reside outside the USA he negotiated with the presiding judge without our direct involvement up to the court appearance. He was able to commute the potential prison sentence to community service which can be served in our country of residence. We highly recommend him and would not hesitate to supply a personal reference concerning his professional conduct and compassion. Having dealt with several lawyers with varied levels of satisfaction in the past (not for the same problem) he restored my faith in his profession. If you want the best look no further.
I retained Eric last year and couldnt be happier with the results. He maintained me informed throughout the process, he was quick to respond to my emails...I was so happy with the outcome, I referrred him to help two of my friends with their cases...and they were also very happy. Thanks Eric!
I contacted Mr. Matheney for representation to help me Expunge an old charge on my record. He kept in constant contact with me throughout the process and handled everything in a professional and timely matter. He was very positive and he had complete knowledge of the process and the outcome was everything and more he had advised me on the first consult. I am very satisfied with his service and highly recommend him to anyone that needs an attorney for representation.
I wanted to write this review for people in need of a criminal defense attorney. I remember consulting with approximately 10 different criminal defense attorneys in Miami and I ultimately decided to hire attorney Matheny.
Attorney Matheny treated me as a "human being" not a criminal, and trust me you need someone who will fight for you ( which is exactly what attorney Matheny did for me). It has been approximately two weeks since my charges were dropped and I finally realize that I got my life back!.
I am writing this because I now know how serious and scary it is to face criminal charges and I don't wish it on my worst enemy.
My advice: if in trouble, do not risk your life with a public defender. There is NO way you can live a normal life with a criminal record, this is not the place to risk. During our first meeting, attorney Matheny evaluated my case and gave me his honest opinion about the "most" possible outcome in a realistic manner. I am so grateful for his help, I got my life back. I remember the person who recommended him told me "Eric Matheny will be on top of your case". I now see how true that was.
You owe it to yourself to at least meet with him.
I don't know where to begin. Eric Matheny is an exceptional lawyer! He has processed my case with attention to detail. I had an indefinite restraining order put against me and needed it off my record because it was negatively affecting me. I got pulled over and it would come up on my record and for job clearance also. He called me multiple times during the whole process, even when waiting for a court date. He was very well prepared on the court date, and an excellent speaker. If you are looking for a true professional call Eric Matheny.
Attorney Matheny did a terrific job when my son and two friends were caught in an unfortunate situation while on spring break. He demonstrated great knowledge of the process, has familiarity with the individuals involved in the prosecutors office, was flexible with tight schedules, was responsive, and effectively communicated with the defendants.
Case was dropped and handled expungement process.
We should all hope we don't get caught in the apparatus but if you do, I do not hesitate to offer my highest endorsement for Eric.
