All my questions we're answered quickly and accurately. The judgment I was awarded was collected except for a small amount which was not worth pursuing. I would use Matt Smith again.

I was referred to Mr. Smith by an attorney that was becoming a Judge. The now Judge said if he were in my position, he would only trust Mr. Smith to represent him. Mr. Smith has been direct with his legal analysis and any cost expectations. He will be my personal and corporate attorney for years to come.
