Compassionate Capable Professional
A trip to the twilight zone of bad relationships found our college student deep in a serious situation. Matt Rupp, took our call, spoke with the parties, gave quick, on point, thorough professional advice, followed up, and like a bomb-squad expert helped diffuse the situation. Well placed, professional advice in real-time averted possible disaster. A caring pro.

Excellent Attorney
I was very fortunate to have Matt represent us in various litigation matters, he is an excellent attorney and who always protects and guides his clients in the right direction. If you have Matt representing you then you are safe and worry free. I wish him good luck and continued success.

Great Attorney
I recently hired Matt, and am more than happy to have had him represent me. I had looked at a few different lawyers and ultimately chose to go with him on account that he seemed to genuinely care, and had no judgment over my sensitive situation. I appreciate that he was accommodating to the fact that I live two hours or so from his office in Watauga County, and he remained patient and attentive as my case was drawn out for ten months. Matt is great at what he does, and I would definitely recommend him.

Innovative and Exceptional
Matt Rupp a diligent, innovative, and exceptional lawyer. We won our case because of his thorough preparation and deep knowledge of procedure. But perhaps more importantly, Matt is kind and encouraging, never judgmental. He is an attentive listener and clearly cares about you as a person, not just as a client. Our case took a lot longer than expected, but he remained patient and polite throughout the process. I highly recommend his services and would hire him again.

Not just an attorney, a kind and considerate person.
Matt helped me and my family, at the most challenging time we have ever had as a family. He did this, not only professionally and efficiently, but with a kind and considerate human element that hugely helped us through a painful time. Truly a magnificent attorney, but more importantly a wonderful person.

Understanding and Efficient
I came out of left field with a convoluted situation involving my college aged daughter, who is attending college out of state, but in one of the counties that Mr. Rupp practices. He was a patient listener, and broke things down in a practical way, to calm my anxieties about being out of state, and not being able to be there for my daughter in person. Mr. Rupp followed through in a timely manner, and explained outcomes thoroughly. I would highly recommend Mr. Rupp, and would not hesitate to call upon him in the future.
