  • Konstantine Antony Demiris

    Matt is a hard-working attorney with a facilitative disposition. I have worked with him and against him on cases; all have been pleasant experiences. He is well-known in Contra Costa County and has been helping clients with a variety of elder law matters including estate planning, medi-cal planning, and conservatorship matters for several years. Matt makes himself available for his clients and opposing counsel. He is willing to set aside ego to get the best result for for all involved.

  • Vrej Vaughn Garabedian

    I worked with Matt on a case as opposing counsel, and was impressed with his professional abilities and civility, which is something I don't usually say about other attorneys I encounter. Matt has earned my respect and trust and I regularly refer him matters that are outside of my practice areas.
