    I endorse Matt Gouaux. Matt is the first attorney I would turn to with an employment benefit question or to refer a client with issues in that area. Matt's thoughtful, well-reasoned approach to issue analysis makes discussing questions with him a pleasure - and efficient. Having worked with Matt on a BASF committee, I know he enjoys the respect of his peers. Without hesitation I recommend Matt Gouaux to colleagues in the legal community.
