  • Bryan Matthew Etter

    Atty. DeMatteo is an asset in our community. He's acutely aware of all the legal & practical variables when representing a client, and provides a sense of (appropriate) humor to boot. I don't hesitate to have Atty. DeMatteo in mind when the topic of Criminal Defense, Appeals, Civil Litigation, etc. come up in conversation.
