Excellent Lawyer
Matthew Schmidt provided me with outstanding legal advice and professional guidance for a first offense situation. After a six month probation period, my record was expunged because of the program that Mr. Schmidt reommended for me. Inam 65 years old and I had never been in legal trouble in my entire life. I am extremely grateful for the services provided by Mr. schmidt.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy Attorney | Dec 23
Relationship: Co-worker
"I have had the unique pleasure of working side-by-side with Matthew Schmidt, as well as serving as opposing counsel against him. Diligence and zealous advocacy are expected of all attorneys. Matthew undoubtedly meets these expectations. However, where Matthew shines is his ability to navigate through complex bankruptcy matters to help guide clients through what very well may be the worst and most vulnerable times of their lives. Matthew's knowledge of bankruptcy law and empathy for his clients allow him to truly live up to the title of "counselor.""
