    • I recommend John Bolton.
    • I hired John 1-6 months ago.
    • John handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    He was amazing. He got my case completey dropped, he was very attentive to my needs, listened to me, and was on my side the entire time. I would hire him again and recommend him a thousand times over. Money well spent! I can't appreciate him enough, he got the D.A. on my side for god's sake. How often does that really happen? Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm more than appreciative.

    • I do not recommend John Bolton.
    • I hired John 6-12 months ago.
    • John handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I wish I could have given zero stars. Mr. Bolton is the biggest disappointment I can imagine. We were with him for over a year. If you exclude the phone calls and emails that continuously cancelled scheduled meetings, I spoke to him three times. Never actually got to meet with him, and now the retainer is gone? Please, don't give this guy any money!!!

    Matthew Bolton is your man!! I just got our of court with him and let me tell you my case was no easy task. But Mr. Bolton GOT IT DONE! And was the most professional and attentive person I have met. Not only did he take care of my case in a timely and orderly manner, but also was very personable and respectful. He kept me up to date by staying in touch and pulled off basically (to my family) a miracle! He is very knowledgable and trustworthy! I recommend him to everyone. Thank you Mr. Bolton and God Bless You and your family sir.

    • I recommend John Bolton.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Matthew represented my husband in Federal Court, he worked wonders and was so unbelievably thorough. Hire him if you need a lawyer, he was a ray of light in a very, very dark time in our life.

    Matt did a great job for me. He immediately jumped to action when I hired him, and I was blown away with his responsiveness and professionalism. I was very happy when all was said and done, and i would recommend him for anybody.

    • I do not recommend John Bolton.
    • I hired John more than 3 years ago.
    • John handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Very unprofessional. Surprised to see he should have 6 yrs experience. You wouldn't know it by his performance. He constantly contradicted himself in how he advised me. He couldn't keep up with what I was telling him. I would recommend he take notes, keep them, and actually bring them to court!
