I had no idea what I was doing when dealing with my case. Mathew helped me understand what I would be encountering and what he would be able to do for me. Absolutely pleased with his services and felt very informed.

Matthew Abdo has had my trust since day one. The second I walked into his office I could not have felt more welcome. He made me feel like he truely believed in me and I could not appreciate it more. His results and help through my OWI case not only helped save my job and future. But also made me believe that I had someone behind me 100%. I would never recommend another attorney to anyone, as I believe that Matthew is truely and honestly the best. He cared about my case, he worked hard, he always kept me informed, and is very knowledgable with all he does. I can't thank you enough Matthew.

I would highly recommend Matthew Abdo. He instantly eased my concerns when I called him about my case. I received two tickets for speeding and driving with an expired license, which could result to points on my record and a misdemeanor. At the time, I was interviewing for an accounting position and was extremely concerned my credibility would be taken away from me if I had to report a misdemeanor in the employment application. Luckily, with an EXCELLENT lawyer, Matt was persuasive in court and reduced my tickets to just a simple, small fine. I was extremely impressed with the favorable outcome. Throughout the whole process, Matt was very kind, honest, compassionate, understanding, knowledgeable, nonjudgmental, and most importantly - he was a true professional. I couldn’t have been more satisfied with the results delivered by Matthew Abdo.

Matthew Abdo was a lawyer I found on the internet, and took my chances, for a Driver's License Restoration Hearing. When I called the office for a consultation, they were all very friendly, and willing to help. I spoke with Matthew directly that day, and was in to meet with him the very next. He was very prompt, and knowledgeable, and told me exactly what I needed to do. I could call him whenever I had questions or concerns, or if I was nervous, just to go over things with him. He was professional, and kind, and made me feel really good about my hearing. To sum it up, we went in there, sat down, and I was awarded my restricted license on the spot. I couldn't have done it without his guidance and experience, and I thank him for that. I highly recommend Matthew to anyone who is looking for a good attorney to help them with any legal issues they may have, and if he doesn't specialize in your issue, he will find you someone just as good. Thanks again Matthew!

I hired Matthew for a DUI charge my second one I felt awful and could hardly focus on anything else he assured me that everything would be fine and in the end it was he always talked to me and treated me with respect even tho I made a horrible mistake he was very personal and didn't act like most attorneys he was who I talked on the phone from the beginning and he was at all my court dates I never got passed off to someone else like most lawyers do I even used him for my driver license renewal and had excellent service over all I would highly recommend him to anyone

I blew a round a .20 which is considered to be the "super drunk" law, well Mr. Abdo was able to get it down to "impaired" and this wasn't my first drinking offense, but it was my first DUI. This meant that impaired was not only lower points, but also much lower fines and restrictions on license and the lowest drinking offense that you can get with a DUI.
He is a VERY hardworking and knowledgeable lawyer and does all he can to make sure you get the best results. Part of my punishment was that I was on a non-reporting probation where I was not able to leave the state, but taking Matt's advice throughout the legal process, and seeing a substance abuse specialist on the side, I was able to get to leave the state for work and had the other guidelines that went with my non-reporting probation removed.
Bottom line is that what you want from a lawyer is their honesty and best legal advice that you should pursue. Well I got that from him and took the advice Matt gave me and I followed it and because of that I am out of trouble so much quicker had I gone elsewhere, and he was able to save me hundreds/thousands in fines and whatnot. Outstanding lawyer who I highly recommend to anybody looking to be represented. Thank you Mr. Matt Abdo and Cy Abdo Law Firm.

He worked and worked and worked until he got the results that I needed. I was charged with having a vicious dangerous animal. Being convicted of that offense could have ruined my career! Great job Matt.

From the moment I met Matt and his partner, I knew I was in good hands. Matthew promptly returned my phone call regarding the case and filed his appearance within minutes of me meeting with him. I was completely comfortable discussing everything with Matthew, and he made me confident in the services he was providing. On my court date, Matt met me at the Royal Oak court for a traffic ticket that would have increased my insurance premium quite a bit. Instead, I walked out with a higher fine but WITHOUT any points. Matthew could not have been more professional, and he understood the procedure at the 44th District Court - he told me he'd been there before with other clients.
I would, without a doubt, recommend Matthew. Thanks again Matt!

We were scared to death about my going to jail. We would have lost our house and so much more. Until we talked to the Abdo Law Firm. We could relax and they answered all of our questions right away.

Matthew took on my DUI case, first offense and had it reduced to an OWVI. Matthew helped me get no time reporting probation and I got off with taking 8 classes and an interlock for 90 days, mainly because of how high I had blown but this still exceeded any expectations I had. Matthew was always honest with me. My fines were reduced from $1000 responsibility fee to $500. He made me feel comfortable in the courtroom and took away from the nervousness. I would highly recommended Matthew to anyone who is in need of an attorney in a heartbeat, no hesitation whatsoever.

Matt is an excellent lawyer. I was being charged with a 10 year felony that I did not commit, and Matt listened to everything I had to say. He worked very hard on my case and the outcome was the best that I could have asked for. After staying on top of everything and keeping me informed and updated on what was going on, my 10 year felony was reduced to a misdemeanor of disorderly conduct. After paying my fines and being put on only 4 months of non-reporting probation, my case was dismissed.

I chose Matthew Abdo to represent me in traffic violation case in which I had been speeding and failed to show proof of registration. I had intended on paying over $400 in fines and having four points on my record but with the help of Matthew, my fines were reduced to $150 and 2 points were knocked off my record. Matthew was punctual, well spoken and outlined the details of my case clearly. He negotiated and carried himself with confidence and advocated on my behalf. I would recommend him and his law firm to anyone in need of criminal defense representation. His personal touch and commitment to getting the best results for my situation was very much appreciated.

I cannot say enough about Matthew. He is a true professional who helped me through a very difficult time and I received a very favorable outcome from the court. After a second DUI in less than 10 years, Mr. Abdo keep his client from serving any jail time. Considering that jail time has been accessed for first-time offenders in some jurisdictions in Michigan, Mr. Abdo is truely exceptional.
I have found a knowledgeable and capable attorney that I will call on for many years to come and for that, I am very grateful.
I would and will recommend Matthew Abdo to anyone who is in need of an attorney.

I couldn't have been more satisfied with the results delivered by Matt Abdo. Matt is an EXCELLENT lawyer and instantly eased my concerns regarding my case. He is very thorough and professional in every aspect of his work and always answered or promptly returned all of my phone calls. Matt Abdo secured a very favorable reduction on my ticket, saving me money and points on my record (reduced to ZERO points)! I would recommend the Abdo Law Firm to anyone!

Matt is an excellent lawyer and has pulled through for me in many occasions. He helped me in a license restoration, DUI, and various speeding tickets. He has always helped either reduce or eliminate the charge. He comes very highly recommended.

Matthew was nothing but professional 100% of the time. He reduced my 3 point stop-sign violation (very expensive) to a 0 point impeding ticket, which I only had to pay a small fine. He was early to court, incredibly intelligent and outgoing.
