Matthew has not only handled our legal concerns with a great level of competence and care but he has gone above and beyond our expectations to educate us to properly prepare for the situations we will face as we move along with our hiring and employee management responsibilities. This help has been an uncommonly effective for us and has led to avoiding costs and preventing unwanted consequences we would have clearly faced. Matthew is effective at creating a proactive and strategic approach to typically reactive situations.
The most recent help we engaged Matthew for revolved around changes to the GA non-compete law. Matthew was able to help us to think through how those changes would affect our ability to protect our intellectual property in manner fair to our employees and future hires.

The general counsel program Matthew provides to small and medium sized businesses is tremendous. To know that our legal needs are being handled with excellence and in an affordable manner brings me great peace of mind. The contributions Matthew has made to my business has allowed us to grow in a way that would not have been possible without him on board.

It’s a pleasure to recommend Matthew LaVallee. I recently experienced firsthand his expertise as an employment attorney as he helped to guide me on endeavors where consulting fees may apply to business I was researching. In addition, Matthew offers a unique general counsel program for small to midsize businesses; saving them lots of money by having a general counsel on call 24/7 for unlimited legal advice for a very reasonable flat fee. He can also individually handle any litigation needs that may arise. After all, his peers have seen fit to elect him again as a “Super Lawyer”. Matthew is a “roll up his sleeves” and “hands on” advocate for his clients. Thus making each business owner feel like they are his most important client.

I have worked with Attorney Lavallee on several litigation matters and can personally attest that he is an extremely skilled and zealous advocate for his clients. He has the legal acumen necessary to thoroughly evaluate cases to ensure the best possible outcome for his clients. He is also well respected by other lawyers in the litigation community, and is a lawyer that I would recommend to represent any of my own family members and friends.

Matthew is an exceptional lawyer and an all around great guy. Matthew has an extremely solid grasp and understanding of substantive labor and employment law. He also works tirelessly on his clents' behalf timely and effectively apprising them of their rights and remedies and aggresively representing their interests in a professional, sophisticated manner. I have the highest respect for Matthew's legal skills and judgment. As his colleague and friend, it is my pleasure to endorse him as one of the most knowledgable and capable labor and employment attorneys I know in the Atlanta, Georgia area.
