If you are reading this you are undoubtedly at a difficult time in your life and have discovered it is nearly impossible to locate a lawyer for your needs and have turned to the internet to help educate yourself. Easier said than done. I have been there and do not envy your position. But I can tell you that hiring Matt was the BEST decision I made and have no regrets whatsoever. If you are looking for a bulldog to beat down your ex in court and make a spectacle of himself then you should look elsewhere. If you are looking for a lawyer who knows, lives, and breaths Family Law in Texas then look no further. Matt is a living toolbox of legal skills, knowledge, professionalism, integrity, honesty, and genuinely invests himself and his resources into the cases that he accepts. Needless to say I was very impressed and I never felt forgotten or ignored by the lawyer that I hired when I desperately needed help. I cannot say the same about all lawyers that I have had experience with. Matt was always up front about fees or potential fees. He or his staff always responded promptly to my phone calls or emails and respected my position by providing answers, correspondence, and advice in a timely manner during a difficult time when I was full of questions. It made the darkest period of my life bearable by providing me a sliver of hope by knowing I was in capable hands. Matt's courtroom demeanor was very professional as was his level of knowledge which is only attainable after years of study, practice, and experience. No matter how nervous I felt, I was able to walk in confidently knowing that I had the best representation possible. His staff was always courteous and always answered the phone. They were resourceful and efficient, polite and respectful. I received an itemized bill each month so that I always knew what I was paying for and how much I was paying for it. After my case was closed I was promptly issued a check for the remainder of funds that I had paid in advance that were unused. I am obviously at no loss of words for my appreciation of Matt Riek and his practice... I sincerely regret that you are searching for a lawyer, but my advice would be to stop looking and call Matt. You won't regret it.
Going through a divorce is tough, hiring Mr. Riek was easy. Thanks to his online information about himself, forms on line, and great suggestions for preparation of meeting with him, saved me time, money and lessened my emotional stress. His sensitivity regarding my situation helped me make the best decisions for myself. He was available to my emails and phone calls and suggestions. I would like to thank you Mr. Riek for the professionalism and quality of service you provided me. You were able to take my bad situation and make it better and for this I will always be grateful.
In the more than 10 years I have known Matt Riek, there has never been a time where I have questioned his decisions or directions. His ability to explain complex family law principles and provide clear and concise guidance are the reasons that he has been my sole source for family law representation.
Matthew & his assistant Jessica were very instrumental in helping make the best out of a bad situation. Divorce is never a good thing, but I'm sure glad I had the help of Matt & his team!! Thanks for your expertise and experience.
Words cannot adequately express my appreciation and respect for Matthew Riek. Matt is responsive, caring, knowledgeable, and a man who keeps his word. Matt helped to ease a lot of my anxiety because I knew that he genuinely cared about my case and wanted the best for me and my son. In addition, Matt has an excellent professional staff who is equally as responsive and professional. I would highly recommend Matt Riek to anyone needing legal advice in family law matters.
