  • Gregory J Kuykendall

    I have known Matt and worked with him on multiple criminal matters for many years. I routinely refer criminal and immigration cases to him because he is deeply intelligent, extraordinarily skilled, a ridiculously hard worker and also kind to his clients. He regularly faces down police and prosecutors, lets judges know he is not afraid to file interlocutory appeals of their improper decisions and he also has the highest ethics. You won't go wrong hiring Matt.

    I am a criminal defense attorney in Phoenix and Matt is the attorney I work with on southern Arizona cases. Although know blood relation, Matt and I think and work alike and I believe he is one of the best attorney's in the State in his field. Matt handles cases himself and is a skilled trial lawyer. I give him my full endorsement. Benjamin C. Green
