Hire Singleton!
I had a case that had been pushed back to due to COVID and needed an attorney to be super hands and responsive. Singleton was amazing! He took immediate initiative and was able to get my case taken care of! I didn't have to plea anything and is being dropped shortly. You can trust him with your case!

The Defender
Mr. Mathews took up my case after I had lost all hope. I’ve never been in trouble or have the need to go to trial before. I was nervous and had no idea of what what trouble i was facing. He took my case assured me that we would fight until the end. because of him i never settled I faught hard for myself and so did he. When Mr. Mathews spoke in that court room on my behalf he exposed the true guilty party and my innocence. Hearing “NOT GUILTY” was a sence or relief and a lifted burden. Thank you sir for your preserving my name and freedom. If you need a Lawyer to defend you THIS IS THE GUY!

I HIRED MR MATHEWS FOR A JUVENILE CASE
MR MATHEWS WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND CLEAR ABOUT EVERYTHING I WAS ABOUT TO EXPERIENCE. I'D NEVER NEEDED AN ATTORNEY FOR ANYTHING AND HE PUT ME AT EASE WITH THE ENTIRE SITUATION. MR MATHEWS KEPT IN TOUCH WITH EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. I WOULD HOPE THAT I NEVER NEED AN ATTORNEY AGAIN BUT IF I DID MR MATHEWS WOULD COME HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. HE WAS KIND AND CONSIDERATE OF MY FEELINGS AND THE FEELINGS OF MY FAMILY MEMBER NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCE WAS THAT LED ME TO HIM. IF I HAVE ANY FRIENDS OR FAMILY MEMBERS THAT NEED AN ATTORNEY , I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND MR MATHEWS. THANKS FOR BEING A TRUE PROFESSIONAL.

Quick and to the point
Mr. Mathews was very professional and handled all matters of my case with care. He was very upfront with me as well as very easy to talk to. I would recommend him moving forward without hesitation. He got my serious traffic violation thrown out, without me gaining any points or heavy fines.

DUI
Mr. Mathews represent me with my DUI case. He was able to help me get my drivers license back so I could work & keep up on my drs appts. He save me from getting that device they put in your vehicle for first time offenders. I only had to due 6months probation.. I was so upset & stress out doing all this, but he ALWAYS remind me that it's just an accident your alive & nobody got hurt.. Not only was he my attorney he was a supported friend & it really help.. I definitely would refer him because he not focus on the money he's focus on helping & fighting your case.. He's very professional, sharp when it comes to knowing the Law, & has a good heart. Hope I never have to use him again, but I have him on speed dial if needed. Thank you for getting my life back on track..

Excellent preparer and does his due diligence!!
I hired Mr. Singleton Mathews to represent me after I terminated my 1st lawyer because he seemed to not be as prompt and worried about my situation nor was he handling it as importance as it was for me. Then I briefly sat down with Singleton and everything was professional and more personal for me since being a minority he knew some things that was being done to me that was unjust. He handled everything professional and expeditiously. Very satisfied, I would recommend him to anyone with any type of situation all the way down to civil. He gets it done!!

Professional and Effective
Mr. Matthews spoke eloquently in my defense for a traffic violation that could have resulted in me not being able to commute to work anymore. He was knowledgeable, professional, and attentive to my case. I would absolutely use Mr. Matthews' services again and strongly recommend him. My case was in front of a judge in Baltimore county district court, and he managed to secure probation before judgement despite a spotty driving record.
