I hired Matt when I was charged with OUI in the spring of 2016. He was very professional and was able to meet me for a consultation less than a week after my arrest. He was able to identify problems with my case that I was unaware of and resulted in the charges against me being dropped. I would recommend hiring him, you will have a hard time finding better representation in Maine.

Matt Nichols is, hands down, the best attorney money can buy. I have used his services (along with those of his associate, Sarah Churchill) on three different occasions concerning OUI charges, and have never been let down. Matt Nichols knows his way around the legal system, and he always makes sure you know exactly what to expect every step of the way. The last time I hired Matt to represent me, I was facing felony OUI charges that threatened to greatly derail my life; Matt was able to work out a deal with the D.A. that would greatly reduce my sentence. Both Matt and his legal assistant Joanne were quick to respond to any questions I had during the process, and also provided continued support in the aftermath.
The greatest thing about having Matt Nichols in your corner is that he genuinely cares about his clients. This is not just a job for Matt; I can earnestly say that his support went far beyond what you would expect from a typical attorney-client relationship. I had no doubt that he was truly fighting for me 100%, and I couldn't have been more pleased with the results.
I can't say enough good things about Matt Nichols; he is worth every penny!

Right from the start during the initial consultation I knew I had made the right choice in selecting representation for my DUI. Matt's approach in my case, expertise, and guidance proved to be very effective throughout a process that involved the BMV, the ADA and the Courts. Both Matt, and his extremely capable legal assistant, Joanne, were responsive in a timely manner to my questions along the way. Their knowledge and professionalism helped me to be well informed and patient with the system. Knowing exactly what to expect made it easier for me to cope with the process and prepare for what lay before me. And it all payed off....I couldn't be more satisfied with the results.

Matt Nichols is one of the most knowledgeable OUI attorneys in Maine and a true OUI specialist. As a bonus to those of us who also practice criminal defense, he is extremely generous with that knowledge. His experience as an outstanding criminal defense attorney has helped all of his clients who faced criminal charges. I endorse this lawyer.
