    • I recommend Matthew Doherty.

    Want to state up front that I received timely thorough results all without needing to go to Matt’s office right when I needed it and after we had only just first became acquainted that day. The outcome happened to be what I wanted but felt I got straight forward council and if it wasn’t going to be in my favor that he would have been clear about that and what options I still would have. In the end it sped up the buying process, conveyed to the seller that I as the buyer was in a sound legal footing for further negotiation reducing the likely hood of a suite, and gave me piece of mind on my decision to hold my ground with the seller. I happened to not just get his verbal legal view but received a letter from him that was a well worded legal perspective that was professional but strong that I was able to share with the seller through their agent to head off further issues on the purchase agreement. The seller the next day after was accommodating.

    So want to say great work Matt really appreciate it and he is highly recommended from me.

    • I recommend Matthew Doherty.
    • I hired Matthew more than 3 years ago.
    • Matthew handled my Litigation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was involved in a very complicated real estate case, and Mr. Doherty really heard how upset I was about my case and offered to have weekly check-in's to review it. He was proactive and assertive in handling the case; did not waste time. He kept me informed and responded to my phone calls and e-mails quickly. He did the necessary research and put forth good arguments on my behalf. He was reassuring, sympathetic and very conscientious. He was respectful and pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend him.

    • I recommend Matthew Doherty.
    • I hired Matthew 1-3 years ago.
    • Matthew handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I have engaged Matt to perform legal work on a number of varied issues. He has exceeded my expectations on all engagements. Everything from real estate, to contract reviews, to collections.

    In addition to being knowledgable and thorough on all reviews/filings, Matt has provided me with strategic ideas to approach situations which I never would have thought of on my own.

    I look forward to working with Matt in the future.

    • I recommend Matthew Doherty.
    • I hired Matthew 1-3 years ago.
    • Matthew handled my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Matt represented us in filing a claim against a creditor who had filed bankruptcy. He handled the claim effectively and efficiently. He also went above and beyond the call of duty as he recognized that another creditor's claim didn't look right. We had him look into this and his instincts were right. He managed to more than double our proceeds in the bankruptcy distributions. Instincts like this are not taught in school. It's nice to be represented by someone who has street smarts as well.

    In my first relationship with Matt he was representing a supplier that we had used at a problem job. In communicating and talking with him about this problem he was fair with me and willing to listen to reason.

    When that was resolved I contacted Matt to ask if he would be interested in representing us.

    He has now represented us as our legal council for a couple of years. He is knowledgable, thorough and he cares.

    No one likes attorney bills but it is certainly better to pay the bill to someone you like.
