    Mr. Anderson is an outstanding advocate for his bankruptcy clients. He is able to acheive astounding results through negotiation with creditors and the trustee. His knowledge and experience are considerbly above his peers of the same bar exam year. I look forward to working with Mr. Anderson for years to come.

  • Marissa Olsson

    I went to law school with Matt and always knew him to be very bright and thoughtful in his approach. I recently had the opportunity to consult with him on an issue that came up in one of my cases outside of my practice area. Matt proved to be extremely knowlegable and helpful. I endorse this lawyer.
