I have been working with Matthew and his team for over a year now. Matthew has treated me and my family with a courtesy that is unmatched. He treats us like family and is very in tune with our situation. Matthew is an aggressive go getter that fights for his clients and his clients children. Matthew also has a humility about him that helps take the stress of court away, he truly cares about his clients and their children. Matthew is professional unlike any other and caring to your needs and very prompt to answer phone calls, emails or text messages either by himself or by his wonderful assistants ( Andrea and Wendy, both are amazing and very friendly). Over the past year I have spent many hours working with him on my case. He has gone out of his way countless times for me and my children to get them what they deserve. I cannot begin to be able to say how outstanding of a lawyer he is and how grateful I am to have him and his crew. The depths these folks go to to ensure your children's well being and protection is absolutely phenomenal. I will continue to work with Matthew and his team indefinitely.

Getting a divorce was one of the darkest time in my life but with Matthew's guidance I got through it without too many scars. I highly recommend Matthew Govan for all your legal needs. He's the best!!
