Professional,Hard working
He worked very hard on my case, never gave up, and kept me informed of everything I needed to do. He asked all the right questions, appeared on my behalf. He kept a positive outlook and fought till we won my case. I would hire him again for this type of case or any other for that matter.

Very professional and knowlegable
Matthew expertly (he obviously did this many times, and that was more than a year ago) alleviated my fears that I might lose my unemployment benefits and thoroughly explained to me what "chain of custody" means. The court proceedings were quite intimidating for me and I was very glad to have Matthew at my side.
