I am from Illinois. I received a speeding ticket in Green Lake Wi. in July 2015. After calling several attorneys in Illinois I was referred to Matthew Murray. Matthew is an excellent attorney. He was able to get my ticket reduced so it did not show on my Illinois record. One of the things I like most about Matt is that he listened to and answered all my questions. He was never in a hurry to get off the phone. He cares about his clients. If my friends or family ever need an excellent attorney I will refer them to Matt. G.R. Illinois
I received a hefty fine in Madison WI and also did not want it on my record. Matthew helped me get everything dropped and was extremely helpful through every step of the process. His drive to help people combined with his passion and knowledge of the law makes him an ideal attorney.

Matt did an excellent job of representing my interests, surpassing my expected goal of removing the felony enhancer on a 4th OWI. Although the process took much longer than I had hoped, the end result of a mandatory minimum on jail (60 days) , license revocation (24 months) and IID (12 months) with no probation could not have been any better. There was lack of communication regarding his appearance by phone in court, but overall an excellent outcome.

Matt represented my daughter for her 2nd DUI. I only wish we had contracted his services for her first conviction. His timely responsiveness to both my daughter's and my own questions and concerns was truly unheralded for any business service - even responding after regular business hours! Matt was always available with a most thorough and knowledgeable response to all our questions and he truly represented my daughter's best interests. Most importantly, he put my family at ease, doing his best to minimize the penalties and "ease the pain". She did not have to serve any jail time and instead had the case transferred to her "home" county whereby she was able to serve her time by electronic monitoring at home.
My family and I gratefully extend our deepest appreciation for Matt's dedicated attention to both my daughter and our family. I didn't know they made them any more like Matt, it's almost akin to a doctor making a house call! He is a credit to his profession and I personally wish him the very best in both his personal and professional life!
For those reading this review, your search for a competent and responsive DUI atty. ends with Matt Murray.
Thank you Matt!

Two years after an OWI and months after a great deal was struck with the DA's office Mr. Murray immediately responded when the jail misread the judge's order and sentenced my boyfriend to sit in jail instead of the Huber release that was agreed upon. He met with the judge and got the order corrected, followed up with the jail repeatedly and even went and visited when the officers were not responding. He worked with countless officers, judges and jailers to ensure my boyfriend was released and after all the screw ups by the jail system, he even got him released early for time served. Great follow up and overall support.

I hired Matt when I got a owi. I was nervous about what was gonna happened but after I talked with matt I felt much better. Matt went above and beyond what I expected. He got the end result I wanted. I would recommend matt to anyone who has recently got a owi.

His overall demeanor was excellent. He was kind, understanding and very patient as he listened to what happened. His professionalism was also excellent! He was concise in looking at all the facts, explaining clearly to me what I was charged with and what options were in front of me. I can't thank him enough. He kept me calm when the stress of my poor choices in my life caught up to me. He always answered all my questions clearly and when I needed to talk to him by phone he was always there. Matt is an excellent lawyer and treated me like a person and not just a client.

Matt is an amazing attorney! I was worried I would have to face jail time. In less then a month he was able to get my case dropped from a criminal offense to a civil traffic violation. He helped me avoid a criminal conviction with out me ever having to step in a court room. I can not be more thankful! I wish I would have used him for the beginning!

Matt is a fantastic attorney. He was always available to talk when I called and I really got the impression that he was on top of my case. Matt was very thorough. He talked me through all the possible penalties that could be imposed, but also explained all the collateral consequences I had not thought about, such as an increase in my car insurance. More importantly, he obtained the resolution we had discussed when I first retained him and my car insurance never went up. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone.

When I decided to hire Matt I knew he was good, but I did not realize how good until now. Several years ago he got a sexual assault charge completely dismissed against someone I know.
Last year I was charged with various felony charges from defrauding the government, maintaining a drug house and delivering prescription drugs, to staging a robbery and defrauding an insurance company.
Matt fought aggressively for almost an entire year. Right from the beginning, Matt went to work cross-examining the officers at the preliminary hearing. At the end of the preliminary hearing, Matt was so good that the judge remarked how weak and confused the evidence was.
Matt convinced the prosecutor that the drug charges were completely bogus and they were subsequently dismissed. The prosecution also agreed to completely dismiss the government fraud charge. I was initially charged with various felonies and faced almost thirty years in prison. I ended up with probation only. The deal avoided a felony conviction,avoided any jail or prison time, and Matt even reduced the amount of money that the insurance company was requesting by almost $5,000.00.
When I was initially charged and realized the amount of prison time I was facing, I felt hopeless. I have no doubt in my mind that Matt is one of the best attorneys in Wisconsin.
