About Me

I enjoy running, golf ("enjoy" is not always the right word as it is a love/hate relationship), reading (especially American history), sports (particularly college football, go Buffs!), and spending time with my girls: my lovely wife, Katie; my wonderful daughter, Sophie; and my sometimes loyal labrador retriever, Lucy.

  • Christopher Daniel Leroi

    Mr. Matteson is an exemplary attorney that I would not hesitate to refer to anyone and everyone. He provides excellent and informed answers here on Avvo. I have been a judge, magistrate, prosecutor, law professor, and private attorney over the past 24 years and I still regularly learn new aspects about the law from his answers.
