Best decision you can make
I met Michael Matera By chance and I have to say it turned out to be the best decision I’ve made Michael personally pulled me through a very trying time in my life where my personal freedom was at stake from the very beginning he was upfront and honest give me his personal contact information and answered any questions right away with confidence when I seen him perform as my trial lawyer I was truly impressed and after a uphill battle during Covid my name is clear my freedom is safe so if you find yourself in a situation this is the firm and the man to contact .. Thank you Michael for everything you’ve done for me Yours truly Charles Grittani

Highly Recommend - Truly the Best!
Matera Law Firm is everything anyone could ask for and more. Michangelo is competent and professional- this guy knows his stuff. He explained in great details exactly how my case would be handled and what I should expect. The fees were EXTREMELY affordable. The office staff were always accommodating and knowledgeable. Phones calls were always returned PROMPTLY and personally by Michangelo or the office staff. I HIGHLY recommend the Matera Law Firm.

The best lawyer ever,
Mike has represented me multiple times in, I would never go to court without him. I would more than likely STILL be in jail for a case that happened over 10 years ago if it wasn't for mikes expertise. 10/10 would use mike to defend me again!

THE BEST MONEY CAN BUY
Mike is the most attentive, resourceful and tenacious attorney. I was arrested twice and both times MIKE GOT AN OUTRIGHT DISMISSAL! There was no plea deal! IF I COULD GIVE ONE MILLION STARS I WOULD! There is no better. Stop looking.

Excellent
Mr. Matera defended me in a trial and gave me 100% of his attention and concern. I was blown away by how professional and knowledgeable he is. He was well respect in the courtroom. Mike covered every detail of the case. He took my trail very personal and ultimately got me acquitted. I highly recommend Mike. When you're dealing with the legal system you need an attorney like Mike. He is someone you can depend on. One more thing. After the trail I was told I had a "PITBULL" for an attorney. Thanks Mike

Great Family Lawyer
I tried to go everywhere for help. Friends and family suggested other attorneys. they all took one look at me and first words out of their mouth was a retainer price they saw I couldn't afford before even hearing my problem. Mike welcomed me in like family and listened and cared and tried to help me without even bringing up money before he heard my problem. It was the first time someone was looking out for me in over 20 years. He treated me better than my friends and family. I know a lot of lawyers but none as unique as Matera. Not only was he the ONLY one who didn't judge me, he knew more about my case then the other attorneys that would partially listen, and with no guarantee of a win in my case I never was so confident walking into a courtroom that I would be taken care of. He helped me turn my life around and I was able to bounce back thanks to his hard work and dedication.

I have dealt with Michael over the years as a client. He has represented myself and firm regarding Landlord Tenant, DEC and Commercial matters. At ALL times he was open, honest, responsive and trustworthy. I wish Michael the best in all of his future endeavors.

A TRUE PROFESSIONAL
About three and a half years ago I was faced with a legal matter. Thinking it would work itself out because it was a family matter, I waited about a year before I went to see a legal advisor. That person could not help me but new just the right lawyer for my case and introduced me to Michaelangelo Matera. I can't begin to say enough about him. Right after I filled him in on my problem he took action. Phone calls went out right away. Contacts were made and the paper work followed right behind. I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. I had no idea what to do or where to start. My family and couldn't be more happier with Michaels legal services. I can reach him by his cell phone or through his office anytime I need to. He hasn't let us down yet. He's even called me on Saturday and Sunday to inform me of new information. When you get to court it can be overwhelming but Michael represents you in such a way that theirs no need to be nervous. He knows just what to do and know just when to do it. My only regrets are not going to him sooner with my legal problem. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a caring hard working lawyer. He'll always be my family's attorney. Thank you Michael you were ment to be a lawyer.
