Our business is a family owned wholesale distributor and we have been working with Matt for over a year now. We couldn't be happier with the caliber of service, responsiveness and continual professionalism Matt has demonstrated thus far. He has helped us with a number of collections cases, which we had been trying to deal with in-house, unsuccessfully, for many years. Matt's approach has allowed us to address problematic accounts in a professional manner without jeopardizing our long term business relationships. Throughout each case, Matt has been able to clearly explain all of our options and their potential outcomes, as well as how each situation plays into the broader context of our business.
Additionally, Matt has been advising us on our internal processes related to our customer credit accounts. He has helped identify ways for us to better protect ourselves when extending credit and ways to make sure we are in the best position possible in the event that something goes wrong. Working with Matt, we feel much more informed about the legal process and the systems in place to help companies like us deal with different situations.
We will undoubtedly continue our relationship with Matt and give him our highest endorsement.

Working with Mr. Blaine was an experience in a class by itself. Not only was he very professional, timely, and informative, he was personable enough to relate to on a level that helped with the stress of dealing with a legal matter. My phone calls were returned the same day every time, emails returned within an hour or two at most, and Mr. Blaine never seemed to be rushing me through any of my questions or concerns. Any time I had a question, he would listen genuinely and walk me through the steps it took to resolve the issue.

Matt is a trusting reliable lawyer that knows his stuff. He has help me litigate with defective products from manufacturers all the way down to simple contracts and letters. I would never use anyone else.

I endorse this lawyer. I have requested Matthew to draft many corporate and business related documents, but one stands out in particular. I represented the wife in a divorce in Morris County, and her husband owned a restaurant. My adversary and I agreed upon the appraised value of the restaurant as well as my client's equitably distributable share of the business. The husband needed a payout schedule over time. However, the only way to guarantee the payments to my client/wife would be get the husband to sign security agreements. I called upon Matt, and he drafted all the security agreements including main Security Agreement, UCC-1 Statement and Description of Collateral, and the Corporate Guaranty. Without Matt's expertise, we would not have these security documents in place.
