5.0 stars 51 totalReview Matthew Abdo
I hired Matt to be my attorney for my initial charges of Intent to deliver (felony) and he did an excellent job of handling my case. He got my charges lowered to possession of marijuana, MIP, and possession of paraphanallia. It was over about 6 months it took these charges to get reduced and Matt helped recommend options before my pre trial to make my outcome better. Along with following his instruction I was able to get my MIP dismissed in a deal, and my other two charges covered under HYTA. It did not stop there, at my sentencing date Matt helped me seek an even more favorable outcome by reducing my community service hours in half and getting me out of drug consoling. Matt is very professional, well spoken, and a highly educated attorney. Never did I once doubt the ability of his service and what he could do for me. If you're stuck in a rut and need some help, I would definitely seek Matt for assistance any time.
From the initial contact with Matt, he made it clear what needed to be done the regain my drivers license. Even when I was slow on my part to get the documents needed for a hearing, Matt reassured me of what was needed for a favorable outcome and took the time to allow me to get everything together. With his representation at the hearing everything went smoothly and I felt very at ease. Thank you again for your help Matt. I'm referring anyone who may need legal advise to call Matt Abdo
In August of 2015, Matt Abdo represented me to get my probation removed for my DUI. I blew a 0.22 and understood the mistake I made and did over 8 months of my 12 month probation. Matt was all you could ask for in a lawyer, and then some; and then some more. He was truly passionate and caring to ensure that I got everything I asked for and went above and beyond when speaking to the judge. He was extremely punctual, well-dressed, well-versed, and overall just a top notch lawyer. He not only got my probation dismissed immediately, but he did it in a reassuring manner. It's been five months since my dismissal and I still think consistently about the service Matt provided. If you need a lawyer, I more than recommend Matt Abdo. He truly deserves the five stars in his rating. He was good enough that five months after the hearing I still felt the need to come back and give him an excellent review. Once again, I fully recommend using Matt Abdo.
Matt Abdo is a highly intelligent respected lawyer.
As a business owner myself that understands the value of dedication, focus, and tentative hard work; Mr. Abdo deliveries on all those qualities plus much more.
I was allegedly involved in a criminal case that made the press, etc.
Matt came in swift and meaningful and sets real expectations that produces real results. If you want a lawyer that represents value, prestige, and takes ownership of his clients desired outcome, please choose Matt. I highly recommend him.
Outcome of case: dismissal upon completion of very light community service and fines.
Matt made is very clear what I needed to do to maximize the chances of a win, and we were able to execute and have a positive outcome. Matt was well prepared and was not afraid to challenge the hearing officer (DLAD case). Straight shooter and discussed realistic expectations. Highly recommended!
Straight forward, no bulls*** and very Professional. Mr. Abdo understands the laws and how the system works. He absolutely did an amazing job representing myself in court. He knows whats best and how to attack. Truly one of the best lawyers you can have representing you.
I hired Matt for my first offense -- a Public Intox charge which, although not as serious as many charges, could have been very detrimental to my upcoming career. I've always been a responsible and well-behaved person, so even the idea of going to court made me nervous. I hired the Abdo Law Firm based on their reputation, and I was very pleased. Matt has a sense of calm confidence about him which immediately alleviated my nerves. He was respectful and caring enough to see me for the responsible, motivated, good citizen I am, and his ability to present this eloquently in court was valuable in reducing my sentence. As others have said, he really does command respect in the courtroom -- we were seen by the judge almost as soon as we arrived because of this. He presented my argument persuasively and professionally, guiding me through the process beforehand so I never felt nervous despite it being my first time in court. The man whose case was heard before mine in court used the same defense we used (HYTA) for a similar crime, and was given a sentence of 18 months of probation in addition to community service. With Matt representing me, I was given ONLY SIX months of probation and no community service, with my charge being DISMISSED as soon as I complete probation. If I ever need a lawyer again, he will definitely be my first choice.

Was facing probation violation on disorderly charge.
While on probation, woke up in hospital from alcohol
abuse. Received another disorderly charge. With my past
history record it would be difficult for the courts to see me as a positive candidate for no jail time. Cy Abdo , who is Matthew Abdo father and partner suggested soberlink which is a breathalyzer device which changed my life to sobriety. The device removed my thoughts of drinking to staying sober as to blow into device in 4 hour intervals. 8 hour interval overnight. Now i can focus on recovery.
40 days later in court i received a 1 year non reporting probation but stay on soberlink. No jail time or other
court ordered requirements. Matthew represented me on the first charge which was a favorable result. No jail time or other court ordered requirements. I have a past record not to be proud of due to alcohol. Matthew explained to the court what i was doing for recovery and what a good provider i am to my family and hard worker for my employer.
Without him representing me it would surly cost me my freedom,family,and job which i so embrace. Matthew is highly respected by the courts as a good judge of character. Matthew believed in me and another chance.
So did the courts because of Matthew. I will retain Cy and Matthew Abdo services for any and every future need like license restoration. Thank you so much for your help
Cy and Matthew i could never thank you enough.
Best lawyers I've ever seen. ** the real deal **

I have hired Matthew Abdo as my defense attorney on two seperate occasions. Once on a second offense DUI and again for a following incident resulting in the suspension of my lisence.
Within minutes of meeting Matt I felt extremely confident and comfortable to have him in my corner, even facing the tough road I had ahead of me.
He was quick to explain all angles of a comprehensive matter and made sure I never left his office with any questions. From the first handshake to end of the case Matt treated my case with diligence and performed beyond my expectations.
The second time an unfortunate circumstance obligated me to obtain a lawyer I didn't think twice on who to go.
Throughout an extensive legal battle, Matt again made sure to be there for me at all times of day. Anytime I had questions or concerns regarding the matter or just needed to cool my head he made it a priority to help and advise me. It was comforting to have an attorney who treated me like family yet would never sugar coat anything and told it how it was.
Matthews confidence, knowledge, and intrepid work ethics once again paid off the second time with him. He devoted much of his time into the case and treated it on a very personal level.
I would highly reccomend his services to friends, family, or anyone in need of a law attourney.

Facing a marijuana and paraphernalia charge I was extremely nervous I could be facing a stiff penalty on account of my past brushes with the law, but Mr. Abdo wasn't going to let that happen. He walked me along every step of the process and explained the possible outcomes and how he was going to approach the situation and was extremely truthful and professional through the entire process. He answered all phone calls promptly and was rapid with a response for any question I may have along the way. My charges were dropped to a littering ticket and I was able to pay my fines and walk away scotch free, even though I had prier cases on my record. I will not hesitate to call Mr. Abdo again and have already referred him to another friend. There is no doubt he is one the best in the business!
