Great attorney, and would absolutely recommend to others
Matthew was extremely knowledgable in all facets of my case, he listened to all of my concerns and was a strong advocate throughout the process. I could not have imagined what this horrible process would have been like without him at my side. I thank him for all of his work for me and my family. I would absolutely use him again but hope to never need to do so.

Fantastic Attorney!
I went to Matt(how many attorneys ask you to call them by their nickname?) and although my divorce was the worst thing I have done in my life, having him as an attorney was a fantastic experience. Extremely professional, knowledgeable and very skilled in what he does. Made the process more palatable, and did a great job for me AND my family!
