We all make mistakes in our life, especially when we are young. I had an outstanding violation of Probation warrant for over 30 years due to my drug addiction when I was young . I never committed a violent crime. Throughout the last 30 years of my life, I relocated out of the State of Florida and I have become a very different person . I have had a successful career, raised a wonderful son, and have been happily married for almost 22 years Mr. Matheny helped me to resolve this issue quickly and efficiently and got all of the charges dropped, the warrant quashed, and the probation terminated. I have numerous illnesses, some of which do not allow me to travel. Mr Matheny never assured me as to the possible outcome of the case. I appreciated this because every case is different as is with every judge and prosecutor. Mr. Matheny fought for me. He was always in touch with me, and is VERY easy to get a hold of and was always honest with me. I could call him or email him and would get a response within an hour if not minutes. He is a very proactive Attorney and I am completely satisfied with the outcome, it was worth every penny. He is very fair in the pricing of his cases and works very hard for you. The best of all of this is that he is honest, trustworthy, very knowledgeable and you can count on him to work hard! I cannot thank him enough!!!
I was being charged with a hit and run because apparently someone had wrote my license plate number and filed a police report stating I hit them. So a police detective reached out to me first to resolve this matter via the insurance but then eventually he started threatening me stating he calls my insurance and no one helps him. He told me if he had to call one more time, that I'd be in trouble and could even face arrest!! So at that point I decided to hire a lawyer, and I found Eric. He was great he told me he would be there every step of the way even if he had to go down to the police station with me. He told me if I had any concerns to call him anytime day or night. Took a huge weight off my shoulder, especially since I've never had a problem with the law. All the calls and threats from the police stopped and he got the case dropped in the end. Very easy to work with and very reasonable. I'd recommend him.
This is not being posted by Attonery Matheny's offfice either!!!! Eric Matheny is a damn good attonery he is classy, smart, and he really knows the law. He got me out of a pinch in a very quick timley matter. I called mutiple lawyers before I called Eric and all of them were very agorrant and had a case of the Miami Ignorance thinking because my case was not a murder trial it wasnt important enough to recieve there help. Eric didnt need my case because he was desperate for work he has a great esume that speaks for itself. Attonery Matheny cares about his clients and whatever type of case you bring to him he do what he can to help you. Please contact him if you need a lawyer you will not regret it.
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.
