Criminal Defense, Personal Injury
Attorney Matthew Maddox is professional and knowledgeable in his field of work. His ability to make his clients feel comfortable with no judgment regardless of their case I find to be pro founding. Mr. Maddox will lay out your case in a way that is easy to understand as he shares with you all the possible outcomes. He works hard to get his clients the best possible result. I was most impress with the fact that, Matthew not only counsel as a lawyer but he gives ongoing encouragement to his clients that feel very personal. He his honest and straight forward! Matthew is always available for you if and when new things arises and/or if you have questions. My experience with Mr. Maddox has been excellent and I would recommend him to anyone seeking an attorney. He lays things out on the table during his free consultation and gives you time to think about it before making a decision with no pressure.

Not guilty after trial
I highly recommend Matthew! He is one of the most honest hardworking attorneys I have come across. Matthew can be a little intimidating at first ( you obviously want that in a criminal defense attorney, especially at trial), but by the end of your first meeting you feel very confident that everything will turn out just fine. I was being charged with a sexual assault charge and prosecutors were seeking a 10 year jail sentence if went to trial. The state was trying to prove that I was guilty with the little "evidence" they had. I knew I was innocent and Matthew did as well. I ultimately put my trust and confidence into Matthews hands, and he did not disappoint. Watching him in action at trial made me feel a lot more confident that I had hired him as an attorney. One of the best in the industry. I would definitely hire him again if I ever run into any issues.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2001.

Reprimand issued in CT, 2001
updated on 08/20/2019

A reprimand is an order from the Statewide Grievance Committee after it has found that an attorney has engaged in ethical misconduct. If an attorney receives more than 3 reprimands in 5 years, a presentment must be filed against the attorney so the Superior Court can decide if more serious discipline should be ordered.

Matthew's comment: “This matter that occurred 18 years ago involved a complaint that arose after I sent a letter ending my representation of a client. It was determined that I waited too long to send the letter. I regret waiting to send the letter and regret more that the client felt let down. There was no other claim that came of this. Sadly, the original case had no merit, which was why I chose to end my representation.”

"Matthew is one of the best in the business. Level headed, articulate, and well respected. Keeps a great relationship with prosecution while vigorously defending his client. Not easy to balance but Matthew does it masterfully."
Criminal defense Attorney | Apr 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I am the current president of the Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and I definitely endorse Attorney Maddox for his work defending people charged with criminal offenses in Connecticut. Attorney Maddox is a tireless fighter for the accused and zealously defends his clients. If you are seeking an attorney for help with a criminal case, you have found a good one in Attorney Maddox."
Criminal defense Attorney | Apr 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I had the good fortune early in my career to share office space with Matthew Maddox and I got to see, first hand, what being a professional is all about. He is kind to his clients and courteous to all. In defending his clients in court he has a uniquely subtle ferocity that, far more often than not, wins over his adversaries and judges alike. In those rare instances where a jury trial is the only feasible avenue for his client, Attorney Maddox can try a case with the best of them. Perhaps most importantly, Matthew has the utmost respect of the "insiders" - court staff, prosecutors and Judges."

"For well over a decade I have seen first hand the quality representation Matthew provides on a daily basis. He is smart, professional and well respected by both the prosecutors and the Judges he regularly appears before. Unlike other attorneys, Matt is not afraid to take a case to trial. He is not afraid to fight for his clients rights and does so with a dogged determination. He is also one of the most well-prepared and courteous lawyers I know which is why I routinely refer clients to him. I recommend Attorney Maddox without reservation."
Criminal defense Attorney | Apr 25
