Going above 85mph in CT is a misdemeanor, and one I was charged with after not paying attention to my speed while traveling from Boston to New York. As a high school teacher, not having a misdemeanor on my record is critical to my career. Matthew Willis guided me through the process of applying for a first-time program of judicial monitoring, reassured me throughout this period of crisis with his calming presence, argued successfully for the judge to grant me the program, and ultimately, one speeding-free year later, had the misdemeanor charge dropped. I could have never done this alone and Matthew was integral to getting me to this point. Highly recommended!

I had 3 infractions I was cited for, during this time I already had my license suspended and was on the fast track for it to be suspended yet again. I had no idea what to say in court and no idea as to how to fight these. I spoke to Matt and very shortly after I was at ease, instead of just telling me his prices and saying I'll take care of it.. he told me that I could realistically try myself first, gave me some ammunition as to what to say and said if the first round of court doesn't go well.. I can always try again with him representing me. That's a pretty down to earth person if you ask me.. felt like a family member was giving me advice instead of an attorney just trying to make money off of me. Great feeling, will absolutely be using Matt in the future if representation is required in any of my cases.

Matt was very friendly, professional and personable. He always made himself available to us throughout our 4 year case. He kept us informed and up to date on the case, and kept in touch even when the process was going slowly, Overall, we were very pleased with Matt and the results of our case.

Mr. Willis has served our company for a number of years now helping to resolve several legal and collection matters with excellent results. He responds promptly, follows thru and kept us informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend Mr. Willis.

My husband and I were injured in a boating accident, where we were not at fault. The driver of the other boat was charged with 3 felonies and was being prosecuted accordingly. However, he did not carry boat insurance. Thus, we were left with financial losses. Attorney Willis worked for months to help recover damages lost in the accident. Without him, we would have been swimming in the pile of paperwork. He helped us through every step of the process and explained every piece of mail we received. He also made it very clear that he wanted the process to be done correctly, and in this case that meant swiftly. If it weren't for Attorney Willis we would still be going back and forth with the insurance company and the person at fault for the accident. He truly is an expert and makes himself available to make sure you are getting your questions answered. I would highly recommend Attorney Willis.
