About Matthew

Learn Matthew’s areas of practice.

After law school, I was admitted to the State Bar of Illinois and began my legal career in my hometown of Chicago, Illinois, where I represented clients in all areas of debt relief for a large firm. In 2008, I moved to Georgia and was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia. Over the years, I have gained experience at both large-volume and mid-volume consumer bankruptcy firms before starting my own practice in 2012.

I now seek to provide personal attention and counseling for all of my clients, working personally with them from their initial consultation all the way through the completion of their case. Having represented thousands of clients since I began practicing law, I have helped to improve my clients' quality of life and decrease their financial stress.

My clients can expect the highest quality legal representation, alongside thoughtful counseling and attention to detail. I dedicate my time to properly investigating every possible avenue of debt relief for my clients before filing bankruptcy. I seek to make each person that comes to me for help as comfortable as possible.

I am licensed to practice in all state courts of both Georgia and Illinois, as well as in the federal courts for the Northern and Middle Districts of Georgia, and in the Northern District of Illinois. I am married and enjoy spending time with my wife and son.

Our Review.
What a knowledgeable and pleasant attorney. Had a consultation with Mr. Cherney concerning a matter that was not a part of his practice. He took the time to direct us where to go. Just an exceptional helpful person. If we ever needed his service of law we would hire him to assist us. Honorable man. You would not be disappointed.

Easy Process
I was extremely nervous about filing but after meeting with Mr. Cherney I felt at ease. He explained every thing and made the process so easy. He is direct and tells you exactly what is going to happen at each step. I had a great experience and would definitely recommend Mr. Cherney for any of your bankruptcy needs.

GREAT PROFESSIONAL. VERY CLEVER, PRICES ARE VERY REASONABLE. I DO RECOMEND HIS SERVICES.
Matthew Cherney is one of the most caring and clever lawyers we've ever dealt with. He carefully looked at all of our papers, statements, bills. He spent one and a half hour with us. He answered all our questions. And after all, helped us decide which route to go. It is the best money you will ever invest. And no pressure whatsoever... And here come the best: after 3 weeks, even knowing we wouldn't need his services anymore because our situation got better, he still helped us to clarify all answers. God Bless you Mathew, you are a truly human being and an excellent professional. We wish you and your family all the joy and happiness because you deserve it. I do recommend him, I do endorse him. And I make myself available for any reference that might be needed toward his services. Thank you.

Highly Recommend
Mr. Cherney was very helpful in helping me make my decision for my chapter 13. He went above and beyond to assist me and explain everything to me. I am one year into my bankruptcy and it has been extremely uneventful. I am very appreciative for all of his help! I would highly recommend him.

ATTORNEY MATTHEW CHERNEY
MATTHEW HELPED MY WIFE AND MYSELF SET UP A CHAPTER 13 TO GET SOME $60,000.00 DEBT CONSOLIDATED AND TO BE PAID OFF. MATT DID EVERYTHING THAT HE WAS SUPPOSED TO DO AND WAS EXTREMELY RESPONSIVE IF WE NEEDED HIS AID. I WOULD GIVE MATT A 10 SCORE ON HIS CHARACTER AND HIS KNOWLEDGE OF OUR NEEDS. SOMETIMES WE DID NOT LIKE SOME OF HIS ANSWERS, BUT HE KNOWS HIS LAW AND WE ARE SLOWLY BEATING THIS CHALLENGE. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM AS A LAWYER AND A PERSON OF EXTREMELY HIGH CHARACTER. HE WAS OUR FIRST CHOICE AND WE WOULD USE HIS SERVICES AGAIN, IF WE WERE TO NEED HIM. THANK YOU

Review for Matthew John Cherney
After visiting multiple attorney's Mr. Cherney was the only one who took the time to completely explain all of my options. He did not push me into making any decisions. He was very clear in what to expect and in what he would do for me. When it came time for my case to be heard, Mr. Cherney was prepared leaving no room for dispute. I truly appreciated the time and effort Mr. Cherney put into my case.

Great help in a difficult situation!
From the first phone conversation it was evident that Mr. Cherney would be the one to take care of us when we were at the end of our rope. I am very glad that we called him. He has not let us down.

A Great Attorney when you REALLY need one!
Matt is wonderful to work with. He helped me get out of a huge financial jam and never with a judgement or a stern word. He is very responsive and a pleasure to work with. I am proud to call him My Attorney.

A Recent Client of Matthew Cherney
Filing bankruptcy was a difficult choice after a lifetime of remaining solvent and saving my credit rating. But circumstances created a situation where I had no choice. I spoke to several potential lawyers about my situation, but it wasn't until I spoke with Matt that I felt here was a lawyer who was honest, forthright, and interested in my particular situation. I wasn't going to be a file in a stack of files, but he would treat me as an individual and respect my situation. He was attentive, responsive to every question, and would provide follow-up whenever it was needed. He was very knowledgeable and easy to work with, and executed every detail on a timely basis and with a thorough approach.

Excellent Rating for Attorney Matthew Cherney
Attorney Cherney was referred to me by a prior client of his. I was told that along with being professional he was very personable, and made her very comfortable. I found this and more to be true. What stood out as well was how he encouraged me, and I felt like there was hope for a new beginning. He was very knowledgeable and I felt assured that I could trust his advice. He always made sure that I had an understanding of the procedure, and that no question was a stupid question. He was understanding of my financial situation and trusted me with a payment plan. I would not have any reservations about referring Matthew Cherney to anyone that would need his services. .

Great Experience!
I would definitely recommend Matthew. From the first conversation through the final stages of my personal bankruptcy, I found Matthew to be extremely helpful and knowledgable. I have not had great luck with lawyers in the past, but Matthew turned out to be a real breath of fresh air. Thank you Matt!

If personal attention and experience are important then Mr. Cherney is a perfict choice
My wife and I chose Matt to represent us in our case because of the personal attention he gave in representing us. He assembled all required documents needed for our case in a prompt and efficiant manner. We are very happy that we chose Matt to represent us. Great legal advocate.

Bankruptcy with ease
I had a pleasant experience with Mr. Cherney. Initially, I was afraid of filing bankruptcy because I did not know what to expect. I have heard horror stories and fallacy’s about the bankruptcy process. Mr. Cherney was readily available whenever I needed him, whether by email or phone. I filled bankruptcy because of my long-term unemployment and could not afford to pay my creditors; therefore, I had little to no money to even file. Mr. Cherney assessed my situation and offered some payment options that worked best for me. The process was stress-free. I provided Mr. Cherney with all of the required information and although the questions do seem to be very personal, Mr. Cherney eagerly explains the reason that each piece of information is required. I would recommend Mr. Cherney to my family and friends. Despite the good service, hopefully, I will never need him again. :)
