If it were possible to leave a zero star rating I would. This attorney is just a small time opportunist and will tell a client whatever they want to hear so that they agree to retain him. I sought out legal counsel for my business. This man assured me that my needs were sound and that the outcome assuredly would be that all of my issues with the business would be resolved through legal efforts. After I paid the money upfront to retain him, he became all but reachable. Phone call after phone call was not returned. I even cancelled personal appointments to be able to show up at the office where I was told he was not there and to try to call again. When I finally did reach him, after weeks and months, he claimed that he had not received any contact from me. He never did any legal fact finding and I found myself on my own doing the work, and researching laws myself. I ended up having to work with a different attorney after no work had been done on the issues at all. I would not recommend him to anyone; it seems that many of the “5 star reviews” are most likely done by his office or coworkers. Please conduct thorough research before hiring someone as your legal adviser.

Since the time I have known Matt Vititoe, I continue to be amazed by his high standards to which he holds himself accountable. Matt continually adheres to moral and ethical principles. He has a keen ability to actively listen to his clients and observe what is happening around him. He desires to seek the truth and get justice for his clientsâ€™, Matt is successful in this by asking the right questions and finding the questions of why. I highly recommend Matt Vititoe to anyone in need of legal representation â€“ if you want the best, look no further. Another excellent quality that Matt possesses is if he feels he cannot give you the best legal representation for your case, he will refer you to other legal counsel more specific to your needs.

Mr. Vititoe handled a sensitive Mediation in which both parties were initially hostile and neither had proper documentation. He plunged into this legal morass deftly and with great care. This allowed both parties to reach an equitable agreement on the first day and avoid any nasty legal penalties. Also, he has provided my business with pertinent and timely legal advice, saving us countless hours and thousands of dollars in an area outside of his regular practice, completing research quickly and impressing our board of directors with his timeliness and professionalism, directly leading to successful business contracts. A fantastic, literate, and dogged lawyer. Highly recommended. My only caveat is that he may be bogged down in cases because he is so in demand; my advice is to negotiate a contract and pay a portion up front to secure this man's services. skimp and you will regret it!

I worked with Matt when he was a mediator of a youth truancy program. He is one of the most competent, reliable and trustworthy people, a rare gem you can really count on. I recommend him without hesitation.

Mr.Vititoe aided my company greatly with his mediation skills. Recently, an in house pay dispute arose with a contractor. Diputes between management and the contractor lead to confusion over the ownership of certain pieces of equipment. After several attempts to settle the matter with no results, Mr.Vititoe was contacted to help us. He immediately went to work setting up meeting arrangements that would be neutral for both parties, and handling all of the go between work, so that both sides had a sense of fairness.

Matt Vititoe is a professional attorney with high standards. I met him during a mediation class he conducted through the University of Detroit Law School. After I became a certified mediator, we stayed in touch and I referred him to several reputable attorneys in town because he struck me as a very intelligent, honest, and professional man with integrity. Many of his clients have told me about their positive experience with him as their attorney, so I recommend Matt Vititoe without reservation.

Matt really went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and informed about my case, every step of the way. When I first went to him for advice, I wasn't sure what to expect. But, he broke everything down for me step by step. If I asked a question that he didn't know the answer to, he looked it up and got back with me right away. I really appreciated that.
Another thing that impressed me was the fact that he listened to what I had to say. There were times when I called angry about my ex; he would listen and help me put things into context. He didn't cut me off or tell me I was wrong; or even try to cloak his advice in lawyer-speak. He would listen and help me see other options that might work.

Mr. Vititoe handled my divorce mediation in a very professional and respectful manner. I felt very comfortable and confident in every step of the mediation process.
