Best Lawyer. Best Outcome
Matt brings to the table deep relationship, angles and perspective that are rare and unique as a seasoned - experienced attorney. He has a unique background of being a successful prosecutor and AMAZING defense attorney. Even rarer, he provides a element of human care for his clients that shows non-judgment and help that presented me a way through an extremely complex and difficult situation. He brought solutions in my case and visited me in Jail multiple times at the height of a pandemic. Where most were uncertain and running the other way..Matt was unwavering and always there. Scary times for the world and my situation.. He goes above and beyond thinking of your well being foremost. Not only did he breath life into me by this, but He played a huge role in lifting me out a very bad place of unprecedented time when it seemed I didn't have a Hail Mary. He truly was an answer to a prayer and he worked exhaustively and relentlessly when so much seemed impossible, restricted and in shambles which was my life and the world.. He provided in my case real productive solutions/guidance that helped assure all parties involved of a good outcome. With his element of knowledge and extensive background of expert work in this field he made more than I could ask happen. Doors I thought forever closed and things impossible he achieved Mercy was afforded in my case that today brings me a brighter future that was almost completely lost without him. For his work I'm forever grateful and lucky to have got him to my defense. Hire him if you can. He is the real deal When all was failing and turmoil thanks for all you did/do and never gave up With love and deep respect Forever and always, Cameron

Solid defense from an effective counsel
Matt Crosby ensured that I was legally prepared for all aspects of my criminal proceedings. He gathered the required information and evidence, and negotiated effectively with the prosecutor to ensure success on my day in court. I can't recommend Matt highly enough. He is a stellar attorney that will get you the best results when faced with significant legal challenges.

Mr. Crosby’s support triggered the catalyst that changed my life for the better.
This review is long overdue, but I digress; A few years ago, I did dumb stuff running around drinking with a dumb abusive boy, I made a poor judgment call and owned it. My heart hurt, I sought penance; but more than anything, I just needed someone to hear and believe my story. One of my closest friends found Matt Crosby and I remember the first day I met him. As humiliated as I was, my father taught me you look a man in the eye and stand when you shake his hand. And from that moment, Mr. Crosby stood by me 110% of the way despite the absolute mess I dropped on his desk. He is empathetic but down to earth; he’s not going to tell you something just bc he thinks you want to hear it, he won’t give you false hope if there is none. He will shoot straight with you on where you went wrong, what we can do to fix it, AND how I can protect myself from making the same poor decisions over and over. But he LISTENS. He went way above and beyond for me, and I have been trying to pay it forward by passing that life lesson along to those who may also need it. Mr Crosby inspired the confidence in me to leave an abusive relationship, set myself some goals, and not be a dumb dumb lol Since then, I’ve had twins (plus a bonus daughter!), and haven’t drank in a couple years now. I happened to be on Avvo today looking for representation for Plaintiff’s side of the field and the very first top rated GA lawyer that rated was Mr Matt Crosby. I couldn’t scroll past without vouching for him as resiliently as he defended me in court. Like Ryan Reynolds (but much taller), he is an absolute GEM of a human being.

Very Pleased!
Matthew was referred to me by a good friend. He explained the whole process when I first consulted with him and was very genuine. After hiring him, he let me know what I needed to do on my end to be ready for the proceedings. I was kept informed during the whole process and he worked diligently to achieve the best scenario for my situation. I would recommend him to anyone who asks.

Matt is a great lawyer and an even better person
You won't be able to find a more personable and honorable lawyer than Matt. Before he talked to me about my case, he wanted to know what kind of person I was. No one ever hopes to need a lawyer, but with Matt on your team, you can rest confidently that your case will be handled with the utmost care and attention. He got to work as soon as I hired him and didn't stop until the case was resolved. Matt is highly professional and is very responsive to that questions and inquiries that you will most certainly have. I would highly recommend Matt to anybody in need of a lawyer. He did everything I wanted him to do and more.

Best attorney in town!
Mr. Crosby was extremely reliable, professional and more when working with our illegal search and seizure case. He was able to have our case dismissed. Mr. Crosby and his wife were supportive during the worst time of our lives. We will always be grateful for their great work and recommend them to anyone in need of a dependable attorney.

Best in the business
If you are looking for the best, you owe it to yourself to call Matt Crosby. Right from the start, his friendly and personable demeanor will make it seem like your chatting with an old friend. Matt is strait forward and leaves out any bs. Immediately deploying your strategy with precision and horsepower, he gets it done with authority while leaving you confident and relaxed that you’re in good hands.. I’ll also say that I have not dealt with many folks in ANY industry that are as prompt with communication. I honestly can not think of a single negative thing to say about this law firm, which brings me back to my opening sentence.

Great attorney
Matt is an expert attorney. He knows the law and provided on target advice as we moved thru the judicial process. He kept us informed and responded immediately to questions and concerns. He did exactly what he said he would do. Even during the pandemic he was able to move the case forward to a great conclusion. Hire Matt because he knows his craft; he knows the prosecutors; he knows the law; and he will treat your family like his family. He was worth his fee. If you need an attorney in Gwinnett county hire Matt because you will be very happy with the outcome.

Look no Further...Absolutely the Best Attorney!
Being an out of state resident, I chose Matthew based on his prior experience and ratings and I am so very glad that I did! He exceeded all expectations. He was very prompt in contacting me and answering any questions that I had. He offered valuable insight and worked closely and promptly with my attorney in SC to expedite my case in Georgia with the best outcome imaginable, while explaining every step of the way to ensure that I understood the entire process. Words cannot express how very thankful I am to have found him. Thanks Matthew for everything!!
