Highly satisfied client!
January 4th to February 5th is how long my boyfriend was in jail. One month, that's it! He had 4 felony charges and Matt & Ben were able to get the felonies reduced to misdemeanors & 1 year probation with fines / court fees. Matt kindly texted me the good news immediately after court! Matt is an exceptional lawyer! He communicates consistently, responds to texts all hours of the day and night, and returns phone calls quickly. He keeps you updated with case information frequently and makes sure you understand. He's very kind and respectful, and makes you feel like your case is important to him. I highly recommend Matt Clemente as your next criminal defense lawyer!

Great advice
Mr. Clemente spoke with me at length about my issue and used language I could understand. He didn’t speak down to me but was upfront and treated me with respect.

A great human and an even better lawyer.
I honestly thought my life was over, but Matt saved it. I got him as a public defender and he put in more work than most paid lawyers would have. Words can't express the gratitude I have for this man. I could have been given 30 years in a federal prison. Yesterday I was given 3 years probation. Do yourself a favor and call him if you need a lawyer.

Honest, Respectful, and fight for the the little guy!
I have to admit when I first spoke to Matthew I was a little hesitant… I mean you don’t find many lawyers actually interested in your case let alone whom actually caring about it. He gave me a free consultation and listened to every word I had to say and I mean there was a lot to take in…. Most lawyers would of probably just turned me away,(and some did) but not him! Not only did he offer me free legal advice he gave me his number and allowed me to contact him if I ever needed help with anything…. Now that’s super lawyer status. He knew what he was talking about and had to facts to back it up! If your looking for legal advice with a lawyer you can trust that will actually care about your case…. Matthew is the answer. Based off his criminal defense knowledge I would bet my legality on him any day. He is experiences in his fields and each support one another, so you won’t be getting any bs hiring him! If your in need of a lawyer that you can speak the truth to and will listen and try his best to resolve your issues Matthew is the way to go!

He really cares
I reached out to Mr. Clemente at 6 in the morning I have been in a panic for about a week with my situation. I suffer with migraines so I had migraines everyday. I spoke with Mr. Clemente Saturday morning and he instantly raised my worries. He was helpful and helped me to understand what was going to happen. He was very kind and he took the time to listen. This one lawyer I will always support. It’s not about money for him he truest cares.
