When typing the transcript for a hearing that took place with Matthew R. King presiding as Judge Pro Tem, I was impressed by a ready delivery of details pertaining to the law and his certain knowledgeability.
The hearing did not go well for me and I am unhappy about this, but I understand that he decided correctly according to the law, though it took some time and the text of his Order Denying Petitioner's Motion to Reconsider for me to properly register how the system goes.
Listening to the recording, Judge King came across as considerate and generous in his explanation, and he sounded intelligent and informed. Really, it is saying something that a disappointed person whose petition was denied came away with a sense for the judge's integrity.
So even though I was not a client such like whose review is gathered for this consumer resource, I thought would put in a good word, and chose ratings according my atypical and brief encounter.
After two years on this case, Mr. King could not even get the facts straight before the Appeals Court. He was disastrous on cross examination, failing to ask the witness more than a single question even after prompting by client. Poor advice, and minimal knowledge of the specific area of law. Although we offered more than the complainent asked in settlement two days after the event, the case was so badly mishandled that it has cost us more than 20 times the amount in question. Do not use this attorney under any circumstances.
I would like to express my appreciation for all good advice I got from Matthew King. He could not take my case because it was small claim but he walked me through all steps I needed to do to succeed. I did what he told me to do and the judgment was in my favor when I took my case to the small claim court.
THANK YOU for your helpful advice. I really appreciate it and happy to know a very good attorney now
Good knowledge of legal area. Responsive to court deadlines.
Often hard to get hold of but that is because he is busy (often in court). This is a good thing - it means he is very experienced in court protocol. Best advice is schedule time with his secretary for even something as simple as a phone call.
Mr. King is straight forward and tells you how things are, rather than what you would like to hear. His resources are unlimited and he will make sure that your case is handled to the best of his ability. I would highly recommend Mr. King!
Over 8 months of trying to get my file from him to no avail. Has ducked me and the attorney referral service who has also contacted him in my behalf
We had a signed written contract for a fixed amount in which he failed to provide us a copy of thereby overcharging us by approximately $8,000. He then withheld critical documentation at trial and failed to provide this documentation for the judge to make an honest ruling. He never informed us regarding our financial settlement, he made all the choices with absolutely no discussion at all. He failed to provide our witnesses to win our case.
Matt handled my case beginning when he was part of a larger firm and I chose to follow him when he opened his practice. He gave it everything he had and went above and beyond. I cannot recommend him higher. I work with attorney's as part of my regular employment and can tell you Matt's ethics are bar none.
Mr. King did an exceptional job in handling my criminal matter. He is very professional, knowledgable in his work, and reliable. He went above and beyond my expectations and was able to dismiss my case entirely. I would highly recommend Mr. King for any legal matter you might have.
Mr. King did an outstanding job in settling our dispute with a roofing company. He exceeded our expectations in settling in a timely manner. The settlement was enough to cover all the expenses incurred in getting the roof totally redone. I would highly recommend Mr. King.
