Professional and Thorough and Ensured Case Concluded Fairly
I was referred to WF&S by a friend and Matthew was a pleasure to work with at resolving my employment dispute case. He was thorough with keeping me informed on status. During the mediation, he was assertive in ensuring my settlement was fair and just, much to the dissatisfaction of opposing counsel. I would highly recommend Matthew to anyone seeking legal services.
