Matt does a great job, I've used him for my divorce and have also gotten great advice from him for my civil case.
very knowledgeable keep me informed and explained what I did not understand and very easy to talk to
I was and continue to be very pleased with the assistance Mr. Shipman has provided. He heard what I had to say about the personalities and the circumstances and provided insight into the likely direction if it went to court. He exhibited professionalism in his guidance and advocated for finding middle ground and settling things equitably without dragging things out to a costly conclusion. I found him to use a great deal of common sense and he changed my perception of attorneys. I have used him now on several topics and will continue to seek his counsel.
My case has been very long and very unusual. Most of it involving my kids. Obviously my situation is very emotional and stressful. Matt has done an outstanding job keeping me grounded and focused. Matt has had to play many different roles in meetings and in court depending on the situation. He is very good at reading the situation and adjusting to what he needed to do that day ranging from quite and conservative to tough and aggressive but has always remained professional and courteous. No matter what has been thrown our way he has always treated me and my family with respect and dignity. What started as a divorce ended with me getting custody of my kids!
Matt was very professional and responsive to my needs. Overall a great lawyer who i would happliy recommend
