Divorce is traumatic- some say that it rivals the death of a loved one. During these times it is important to have a voice and a foundation when it becomes difficult to think clearly and unemotionally. A few years after my divorce, troubling legal issues erupted regarding child support and the Office of the Attorney General (Texas). I came to Matthew Hill for help. He stood by me, and guided me through the ridiculously complex process. We settled all the issues quickly and fairly and my orders are now clear and concise. Now I can sleep night. I have worked with other attorneys but I have to say, no one I have worked with thus far has the experience, compassion, knowledge, and work ethic to get to a positive outcome like Matthew J. Hill. Thank you Matthew and Mickey for helping me I could not have done it without you. If you want the best in family law, this is the only choice!
When speaking to Matt in the initial conversation, he seemed very enthusiastic about a quick outcome. Most of the time he does not have a paralegal working for him, so he is charging you a full rate; for sending you a 2 word email, or short fax. Every Deadline we had set was missed, Every other email was him explaining he was sorry. His family has more illness and emergencies then I have ever seen. Lesson learned, go with people with more support, larger practice, who can litigate and get things expedited quickly. He is a nice enough guy, but execution is no this strong point. Seems to be more focused on billing and collections then client satisfaction. A year after we ended the case early, due to in my mind misrepresenting of time to trial, not listening to me the client, and a million emergencies. He agreed to help drop the case, and not charge any more money and we go our separate ways. I still get a monthly letter asking to pay some balance, that was not to exist. Again, he represents himself as an attorney who covers everything from Criminal to Real Estate.. But rest assured when you are trying to push your case to completion; expect him always to: Delay; Have some huge case going on; or have some sort of emergency that keeps him from dead lines he sets..
This was a lesson learned on my side, and should have asked to speak to references and I judged his character wrong.
Mr. Hill was excellent and responded in a quick and efficient manner. This was an emergency case and he was more than willing to assist with everything that was needed. Mr. Hill is highly qualified and extremely professionally in his demeanor. I highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking a professional and qualified attorney.
