No Hope....
I came to Mr. Tucker in 2014 with more charges than I can imagine... Labeled by society and the courts as a menace to socity and simply at a dead end. He talked with me and was able to communicate on a personal level and informed of my rights and options I didn't even know I had... He didn't care what I had done or not but ensured me regardless he would defend me to the highest. I have hired an attorney before and it was the worst experience ever and all I paid for was for no communication, no understanding of my case or charges or even simple answers to my questions to ease my mind...what a waste of money it was... Thankfully I met Mr. Tucker he did so much more not only did he beat my case it was dismiss... I owe the biggest thank you to Mr. Tucker!!!!

Absolutely excellent!
In 2013, I was facing 3 charges (DUI, MIP, traffic violation) when I decided to hire Mr. Tucker. Over the next year and a few months, Mr. Tucker fought head over heels for me in court. Although he had other clients over that time period, I still felt for that entire time that I was his only client, in that he answered every time I called him, and answered all my questions perfectly for me. He also was in constant contact with me to let me know how my things were going, so I wasn't left guessing. Not only that, but he went above and beyond for me to get every advantage the law would allow. When it was all said and done, he was able to have both the MIP and traffic violation dropped, and I was given minimal penalties for the DUI. After asking other people what penalties they were given for their DUIs, I marvel in the fact that all their penalties were so much worse than mine. I'm incredibly thankful that I happened to hire one of the best in the business, and I'd recommend him to anyone for any case.

Child Support and Custody
In 2008 I hired Matt Tucker for my youngest son that was looking at 6 felonies, a year an half later my son was given 1 year on receiving stolen goods, witch 1 year was a whole lot better then receiving 55 years. When someone steals someone credit card and they put gas in your car, you are receiving stolen goods, he had to pay back 30.64 for the gas and 1 year probation, in 2010 I had a Civil matter I hired Mr Tucker again, Know I am hiring him again on a Child Support and Custody, for my middle son I called him up, when you trust a Attorney that will do a good job you higher that person again, he keep's you inform at all time I have called him on different matters and was always given the up most respect, you will stay with that person I have been asked in the past do you know a good Attorney yes I do Matt Tucker

A joke
I was no impressed or pleased by Matthews performance in the courtroom. My loved one is still in prison right now matter fact, for a crime he never commited. My loved one was rail roaded by the system. Matthew was no help matter fact seem like he helped the district attorney.
