Matt is very understanding, approachable and very knowledgeable in helping his clients. I was very comfortable talking to him about a family matter that I was first somewhat embarrassed to follow through with - getting a judgement against my sister who stole my share of my mother's trust fund for us. Matt did a great job in making me feel right about my desire to make her pay me my share and the expenses incurred while doing so. He's worth the drive from Virginia Beach to Williamsburg! I am also going to have him prepare a will for me!!!
