    • I recommend J. Catchick.

    Fantastic experience working with Matt. He made a stressful and difficult time so much easier and was always available when I had questions or concerns. He went well out of his way to resolve issues and deal with various government offices directly, specifically dealing with the Friend of the Court which I dreaded talking to. I would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with divorce or family issues.

  2. Professional, compassionate, articulate, and effective.

    • I recommend J. Catchick.

    Matthew Catchick represented me through a contentious divorce that involved young children and had some complicating factors including a history of domestic violence. During the 7 month process, I always knew what to expect because Matt was very to the point yet compassionate in explaining the court process, and our respective responsibilities. His communication is very prompt and effective. He is meticulously detail oriented, there was never an "i" left un-dotted or "t" uncrossed. His level of professionalism and breadth of knowledge and experience in family law was so reassuring that even during a crisis of such magnitude I felt protected and relieved knowing that these legal and life-altering matters were being taken care of swiftly and with my long term best interests at priority. The process and outcome were both better than I could have ever anticipated. I highly recommend him.

    He has been my lawyer on a few different occasions ranging from civil infractions to misdemeanors. Every time he was able to offer amazing advice and did everything I could hope for. Besides removing my own mistakes like they never happened, Matt has been a great choice with no regrets for the money invested in my future as I've been 19 to 21 with him as my representation.

    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!

    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.

    • I recommend J. Catchick.
    • I hired J. Catchick 6-12 months ago.
    • 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.
