About me

For more than a decade, I have fought to protect my clients' Constitutional Rights and their presumption of innocence in a day and age where people seem to be presumed guilty and must be proven innocent.  Please contact me today at 855-782-2938 for your free, initial consultation.

  • Stevin James Groth

    I have known and worked with Matt Fech for more than a decade, both during his time in Ohio and Indiana. He is a compassionate advocate, excellent trial lawyer, and a fighter. As well, he is fair minded and willing to work hard to get the right results. He has handled the most serious matters, from murder and rape, to virtually every type of case, and he has gotten excellent results. If I had legal matters in Indiana, I would call him first.
