    Matt is almost always the smartest lawyer in the room. His knowledge of legal issues in the field of Labor and Employment Law is deep and he brings wisdom and intelligence to bear on all client issues. His work with on behalf of both employers and employees is unequaled in Florida. I have sent him many clients and they have all been very satisfied with his work.

    My client couldn't say enough wonderful things about the consultation she had with Matt Fenton. I referred a client to Matt regarding a non-compete contract. My client reports that Matt listened to her, even through her tears, consoled her, and advised her of her options under the law. Even though my client decided to move forward without litigation, she was thankful to me for my recommendation of her to Matt. Based on my client's review, and other clients my firm has previously referred to Matt, I won't hesitate to continue to refer employment and labor law cases to him.
