In his very first year as an attorney, Matt made over two hundred in-court appearances throughout the State of Michigan where he began to form what would become an extensive network and friendship with the Attorneys, Prosecutors and Judges which inhabit the counties of Oakland, Macomb, Wayne, Washtenaw, and Lapeer, those counties in which Garmo &Kiste regularly work.
Dedicated to his work, Matt prides himself in the level of service which he provides his clients regardless of the level of difficulty of their case. Always in contact with his client, Matt represents every client with the mindset that he would do the same job for them that he would do for his own family.
A graduate of Wayne State University, one of the greatest advantages of hiring Matt is the connections he brings to the process. Admitted to practice in the State and Federal jurisdictions of Michigan, typically Matt will have had a similar case to yours;and will know the prosecutor or City attorney assigned to your case. Likewise, if you case concerns a credit card or an unpaid debt, there is a good chance Matt may have worked for the debt collector, or may know the attorney your creditor has hired.
A certified public mediator and a member of the Macomb, Oakland and American Bar associations Matt has been before every Judge in Oakland, Macomb, Wayne, and Lapeer Counties.
These relationships and past experiences all help Matt to understand and anticipate a Judge’s reactions to your case, to know how your prosecutor will want to proceed, and to negotiate with your adversaries’ attorney, and to obtain the best deal for his clients in efforts of removing as much uncertainty from the legal process as possible.
Unlike many attorneys, Matt offers the personalized attention to each of his clients that they demand, and promises to represent each of his clients as if they were his family.
Every day Matt looks forward to doing everything he can to earn your business and make you a client for life. Matt’s primary source of clients is from his own current and past clients and he looks forward to assisting your friends and family as well.
Matt’s Direct Phone Number is 248-398-7100, ext. 1.
