About Matthew

Learn Matthew’s areas of practice.

Hi, I'm Matthew.

 

I approach the practice of law with a focus on helping my clients understand an often complicated legal system. Working collaboratively allows me to anticipate my clients' needs, while also aiding my clients by providing them an informed view of all the potential dangers and rewards of each unique case. My primary practice areas are Divorce, Child Custody, Trusts & Wills and Bankruptcy. However, I also provide legal support for small businesses looking to incorporate, resolve disputes with employees or review potential contracts and business transactions.

Custody and Visitation
Mr. Kreitzer was hired by me for what I thought would be a short case. However, it’s lasted over a year (not by any fault of his) due to opposition dragging things on and on. Mr. Kreitzer was patient and kind. Absolutely knowledgeable and does not allow the other side to push you around and gave his best advisement regarding the circumstances every step of the way. Would absolutely recommend hiring him and would hire him every time!

Very Highly Reccomend
Mr. Kreitzer demonstrates a very knowledgeable understanding of the law and the court systems in which he practices. In the courtroom, Mr. Kreitzer thought very quickly on his feet and delivered a very intelligent rebuttal against the opposing party’s testimony, where I have seen many other lawyers in the past freeze and fall apart. I Very highly recommend him for any legal purpose.

Great Consult
He examined our documents in a timely manner. He also referred us to another attorney when it was outside of his expertise. He was very kind and patient too.

Recommended highly
Mr. Kreitzer took the time to explain what the legal process was. He didn’t talk over my head nor treat me like a dullard. He detailed my options and likely outcomes. When I made a decision he implemented it. No trying to change my mind. If he felt I made a wrong decision he explained the consequences again so I either accepted them or took my chance. I never felt neglected or bum rushed.

Rising star in the Shenandoah Valley judicial system.
I hired Matthew in September 2016 to argue on my behalf in regards to a protective order that was filed by my teenage son and my ex-wife. Matthew has always been very personable and knowledgeable. He has always made me feel as though my case and situation are important and a priority to him. Matthew has always made me feel as though he believes in my case. He has always kept me updated on my case and has always made time to meet with me. Matthew was even gracious enough to accept a phone call outside of normal business hours once. He once spent nearly four hours waiting for my case to be heard, as the court was behind schedule. Matthew spent that extra time in the court room studying the judge, and asking other attorneys about my case and what their opinion was on how the judge handles cases such as mine. He does not seem intimidated by my ex wife's attorney. And he conducts himself in a very professional manner. My case is ongoing, but as of right now, I'm very pleased with the work that Matthew has done on my behalf. I would highly recommend Matthew for your legal needs.

Exceeded expectations
I was initially hesitant to hire Mr. Kreitzer due to his lack of experience. I was reassured with his honesty about his experience and his understanding of my hesitation. From the very beginning it was extremely apparent that he was very dedicated to my case, and was available anytime I had a question or concern. Any email or phone call ever sent was responded to within the hour. Every single one. His honesty, punctuality, and respect were more than I ever expected. Every time my case had a development, he was honest about the pros and cons of potential options. Every request, order, and subpoena was drafted with my well-being in mind. Even though he was representing several clients in several cases, I always felt as though he made my case a priority. Mr. Kreitzer never appeared intimidated or reserved towards other attorneys or my ex-wife. I am completely certain that the case was concluded in the positive outcome in which is was due to his dedication and professionalism. If you are looking for honest and dedicated, as well as a lawyer who always puts your needs and priorities first, Mr. Kreitzer is a sure thing. It should be noted that I am a male with three children of the marriage and I am beyond satisfied. Thank you Mr. Kreitzer!
