    • I recommend J. Catchick.

    I work for the Michigan State Police, so I have had my share of time dealing with Attorneys. I was hesitant knowing I would need to hire one for my own family law issue. However, when I found Attorney Matt Catchick, I immediately knew I was in the right hands. Matt was there every step of the way. He was not only incredibly knowledgeable, but he actually cared. Matt went above and beyond to answer any questions I had, promptly return my calls or e-mails, and above all, he was conscious of my budget and made sure to keep me aware of where my bill was at. I knew that any money I spent was being billed honestly, and I appreciated all his efforts to keep me informed along the way. This attorney doesn't miss a beat. He was always upfront and honest about my case. Once I retained Matt, I finally stopped worrying because I knew he would provide me with the best possible outcome, and he did. I can't say enough good things about this guy, and how much I appreciate him. I will definitely use Matt anytime I need, and I would recommend him to anyone!

    • I recommend J. Catchick.

    Matt was always straight forward and realistic about my options and costs in my custody case. I was never married but fathered a child that he helped me worked through. I wish I would have had his help from the beginning. Several lawyers before him were unable to help but Matt made it happen. He was cost conscious and was realistic about what he could accomplish. He knows what he can do and can't do and lays out the options in a way others don't. Matt knows the system well and has the positive reputation others don't. He is honest and caring and really seemed to feel what my son and I were going through. Matt works hard to get it right and he takes it seriously. He has a personal interest in getting it right the first time around. I highly recommend him for any case he chooses to take on! If he can't get it done, no one else will be able to either. Unlike the other lawyers I hired, he was always had very sincere interest in the issues at hand. You won't be disappointed! Thank you Matt! You really made a difference!

    I called Matt looking for help with a CPS investigation and although I was too far to away for him to take on my case, he answered my questions and referred me to some awesome lawyers closer to me.

    • J. Catchick handled my Speeding / Traffic Ticket matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Matt is a go-to guy for legal advice. When my teenage son got his first traffic ticket, Matt was my first call to lay out the options and give the young man a good perspective on his responsibilities as a young driver. With Matt's advice, we avoided expensive court costs and even more expensive insurance rate increases. I hope my legal needs never get more serious than traffic tickets, but if they do Matt will be my first call.

  6. Great Attorney with abundant knowledge and skills.

He responds to emails very fast and also answers/returns to the calls very promptly. Thank you Matt.

    I hired Matt as my divorce attorney. And, let’s just say, this was not an easy, straight-forward divorce from the start. He stayed on top of it, even one step ahead of the opposing counsel. He prepared me for what I could potentially expect next – both with legal counsel and from an emotional standpoint. He was ALWAYS on and by my side – giving me his professional advice and guiding me as decisions were made with the pros/cons of each step. In the end, my “ugly” divorce actually turned out pretty simple which is a testament for how prepped and buttoned up Matt was. When you go through a divorce, you never know what will happen – and we definitely had some curve balls – but with a great attorney like Matt, you can rest assure that it’ll go as smoothly as possible. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone – I even have. He’s an excellent lawyer!

  8. You can spend more, but you won't get more! Matt is the best!

    • I recommend J. Catchick.
    • I hired J. Catchick 1-3 years ago.
    • J. Catchick handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Matt was wonderful in helping me work through the process of a criminal trial. You can tell he's real experienced (He used to have a law show hosted on WJR - they don't give those out to just anyone!). I can't imagine anyone working harder or being better prepared. He kept me informed and guided me through the process, making a painful experience much more bearable!! Would highly recommend him!
