sued by bank
I was sued for a debt and this law firm defended me for free and even got me money. If you have a problem with a debt they will help in a big way.

Highly Recommended
I retained Mr Stonestreet to defend me against a DUI charge. His representation was prompt, courteous and highly professional. With his able assistance, the charge was dismissed. I would not hesitate to recommend him for this type of matter.

Repo of car
My car was illegal repo'd and he helped me to get it back. Even though he was a couple hours away, it was worth the trip to Charleston. If you have any kind of car issues, this guy knows his stuff.

Matt was great!!!!
After my rear ended car wreck, the insurance company still tried to blame me. Lawyer Stonestreet was great in making them realize the truth!

I was in a difficult situation and Matt really put me at ease. He made me feel comfortable the entire time he handled my case. No only was he competent, but I know he cared about the outcome of my case.
