Hands down Mathew Dudley is the best Attorney in Spokane! Smart, aggressive, reasonable rates. There is no other attorney in spokane that can compare to Matt. He knows how to control a court room. Matt will aggressively work for you and your needs. Don't waste your time and money on another attorney you'll regret it.

When it comes to complicated ex's and cases, you need an aggressive attorney by your side. My situation was/is complicated to say the least. When I came to Matt, it was a mess. My previous attorney was a complete moron. So I was in need of a new one. First thing said, Matt is not your kumbaya attorney. He is straight and to the point to a fault.
Lets face it, going through a divorce is no picnic and you need a terminator to fight for you. To be very frank that is what he was for me. I highly recommend him and I am very confident while I type this, that I would use him again, and most likely will; in the future.
He was Aggressive in court, Firm with the other party when needed and was Responsive when I asked questions or seek advise. If you find yourself in a complicated state of being and you need a terminator, Matthew Dudley will be that for you.
At the end of the day I am very pleased with my outcome and the work he has done for me and my family and because of it we are better off.

Matthew was (is) my attorney. Although the trial ended in October 2013, questions and issues have continued to pop up along the way. I have been able to call him and e-mail him, without issue. He is always willing to take my questions and prompt to respond. He is extremely committed to his clients current and past. You will not get this dedication for another attorney in the area.

I was in need of an aggressive attorney for my relocation case. Mr. Dudley was just what I needed. He was awesome in court, represented me very well. His fees were very affordable he did not nickle and dime me for every little email or phone call. He was very knowledgeable, professional, and informative. I highly recommend Mr. Dudley.

Matthew was recommended to me by a family friend who had lost to him previously. He is exactly who I needed to represent us. Matthew has taken control of the courtroom and made everything very clear to the judge at the pretrial and trial. I wouldn't say I got exactly what I wanted out of it, but I got more than I thought I could. A few critiques for Matthew would be to better prepare his clients before mediation and to go over relevant medical records before court. Other than that I rather enjoy working with him and feel confident that he knows what he is doing and the best way to get it done. He doesn't sugar coat what he says and that made the process so much simpler. I plan on continuing to use his services and recommend him to anyone interested in hiring a family lawyer.

To begin with, I had a very ugly case. One that had already been started and I dropped the ball on it and left it alone as I was in agreement with my child's father... When my daughter was returned to me abused from her fathers house, Matthew was the one I knew I needed to go see, as he was my husband's childrens' mothers attorney and did an amazing job. He may seem to some as satanic however he is a man with an enormous amount of knowledge, most definitely willing to fight for everything you want and at the same time with be 110% honest with you on if you are being reasonable or not and has enough experience to know what the wonderful judges of Spokane will go for as well and the satanic-ness is simply a form of knowing that he knows his jobs and will fight for you as that is what we all hire him to do. Over all my satisfaction with Mr. Cuddly - Dudley was beyond anything I ever imagined.

After being absent for most my child's life, my child's mother decided she wanted to get clean, and obtain joint custody. Mom went out and hired a slimy lawyer and started rapid firing legal documents at me, that were not properly filled out, or the correct documents for parenting plan modification. They fabricated some lies as their justification for needing this modification, and postured up all tough.
So i sought legal advice, and found Mr Dudley highly recommended. I looked up his reviews here, and read some kind of negative things, and other rave reviews. I decided to go into his office and talk over the case, and I am so thankful I did. Matt saw everything moms attorney was trying to pull, and knew exactly what to do. He is very direct, and does not waste time, which is awesome when your on the clock. He is extremely honest, and will tell you what you need to know, not pat your bum and sugar coat things. He is direct, and fair.
The only thing that worried me was his appearance, and his office's appearance when we met. However... the man cleans up nicely, is 1000% professional on court day, and he doesn't mess around. When court day came, mom was late and the session started without her. Moms lawyer fumbled through his case, and got reprimanded by the judge for failing to follow proper procedure, and he was out. Matt leaps into action and absolutely picked the entirety of BS apart. Like straight up, destroyed their case. The judge also saw straight through what was going on, and reprimanded both mom and her slime ball attorney, and ordered that the moving party (mom) to pay for my attorney fees for wasting everyone's time.
Granted, my case was a slam dunk due to circumstances; but Mr. Dudley, made sure everything in my position was stated clearly, and professionally As well as pointing out piece by piece how they didn't have a case. He made sure I was 100% squared away, everything worked out for the good guy, and especially for the child, who's life hung in the balance. I cannot tell you what a blessing hiring this guy was. If you need a strong advocate, with good morals, you NEED Matthew Dudley.
Only thing he could improve is keeping you 100% up to date. I had some questions after court was done on the long term plan, but didn't exactly get a clear answer, so follow up could use some work, but hey, the important stuff couldn't have been handled any better.

Mr. Dudley did a great job for me. He was knowledgeable, professional and very accessible. I switched to him during the middle of my divorce and he was able to pick up right where my former attorney left off without a hitch. Two friends from work recommended him to me and I am very thankful that he represented me. I would use him again as well as tell anyone I know that he is the lawyer to have if you are going through a divorce.

He was unprepared, unorganized, rude and unprofessional. I have nothing positive to say about him. Don't make the mistake I made when I hired him for my child custody case. I lost because of him. He did not educate me and in the end he wasted my time. I would have been far better off if I had represented myself. DO NOT HIRE HIM AND IF HE REPRESENTS YOU NOW... RUN!!!!
