    Hired Attorney

    Great Outcome, Highly Recommended

    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.

    Steve - Hard working man with alcohol problem

    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 **

    A remarkable lawyer, all around great guy, and a winner

    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.

    Matthew S. Abdo’s response: “This case was one of my biggest successes of 2015. I felt Jacob did not receive justice at his first hearing and so we decided to appeal it and got a TOTAL win. Appeal work can be very arduous and complex, requiring a command of both the facts and the law. In this instance, though the AP did a very professional job defending the case, the Circuit Court judge kept an open mind and ruled in favor of my client. Jacob is an important client to me. He is my first client I have taken from sobriety court all the way to his full license. And while I certainly did my share of work, so did he. In the few years I have known this over achieving young man he has remained alcohol free, advanced his hobby in personal training, and is moving up in a successful business. I know Jacob will never need my services again, but I know we will remain friends. Thank you for the privilege of representing you!”

    Matt Abdo the best in the business

    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!

    Matthew Abdo: Everything you want in a lawyer

    I was being charged with a felony that had punishment of 10 years in prison. I was released from jail on bond at night with my arraignment the next day. The morning of my court date I contacted several of lawyers who were all willing to help me, but they were all trying to take advantage of my time situation by scheduling a consultation at their office right before my court time so I would have no choice but to use them. Matthew Abdo was different from the rest, he actually went out of his way to rush to meet with me. Giving Matthew only a short notice of the situation, he was able to prepare me for my first time in court and also was able to make me at ease during this stressful time of my life. After only 2 preliminary court dates Mathew was able to get the best possible outcome a “DISMISSAL”. During the case Matthew kept me updated with any information and was always available to answer my questions. Matthew genuinely cares about his clients and will exhaust all possible means to get the best results for his clients. He is very professional and also very direct. He’s everything you want in a lawyer. He is respected in the courtroom, he is honest and truthful, and he works hard to get the results you want. I was lucky to have a lawyer like him and highly recommend/encourage other people to retain him as their attorney.

    Matthew S. Abdo’s response: “This was a great result for a client very deserving of such. From our first consultation I felt we had very good rapport and built a strong attorney client relationship. The way this case played out we were able to get a huge result and have my client's charges dismissed. Seeing the agony and unrest this was causing him I was personally incredibly satisfied with this disposition. I am sincerely happy that my client, who is very bright with a promising future in front of him, can go back to the aspects of his life that matter most. Thank you for the kind words and vote of confidence in Abdo Law!”

    Matthew Abdo - OWI Case

    I contacted the Abdo Law Firm after doing some online research and had a returned phone call within 30 minutes. I was being charged with an OWI High BAC and this would have been a 2nd offense. I went in and spoke with Matt and Cy and they talked me through all the scenarios. I compiled some paperwork for them and they put together a great packet to send to the Prosecuting Attorney. It took a lot of effort on Matt's part to get this charge reduced, but after it was all said and done, I walked away with a non drinking related offense. My situation was slightly different because I am an Army Veteran, but i would recommend anyone to contact them if in need of a lawyer.

    Matthew S. Abdo’s response: “Certainly worked very hard for this particular disposition. Luckily my client was highly motivated and I believe proved he was more than deserving of such. Helping people through a difficult situation and getting results like this are one of the most rewarding aspects of my practice. We appreciate this client's vote of confidence in our practice and do our best to put forth same effort on every matter we take on.”

    Matthew S. Abdo’s response: “The result we reached on this case was outstanding. The client had an excellent background and it was our goal that one small mistake not keep her from all of the wonderful things she has going on in her life. Ultimately a criminal traffic charge was reduced to a civil infraction and the case was disposed of with fines and costs. Another example of a very rewarding result and a client who was a pleasure to represent. Thank you for the kind feedback and I look forward to hearing about your future successes.”

    Past Client and Return Client

    In 2003 I was convicted of my 2nd DUI and a marijuana possession. Matts dad Cy was my attorney and helped me get through both convictions with little punishment. In 2010 I returned to receive my license back I was awarded a restricted license and in 2014 I once again used them. This time Matt was my attorney you can tell the apple doesn't fall from the tree because I was rewarded my full license back. All thanks to Matt and his great care over my case. I highly recommend using this law firm and Matt to help you with your case. It's worked for me several times and I know they will treat your case with the most care.
