Very kind and considerate
Matthew took the time to let me ask all the questions I needed. He gave me a lot of useful advice. I plan to have Matthew handle my financial planning needs in the future.

Excellent Attorney
I have consulted with Matthew several times regarding tax and financial issues. I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Every time I meet with Matthew I come away having learned something new. Matthew is incredibly patient and takes the time to break things down and explain them step by step. Matthew is an excellent attorney and I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Tax Attorney | Mar 01
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Matt is an intelligent and talented lawyer and CPA, but that is not why I refer my tax clients to his office. I refer people I know and trust to Matt because of the quality of service he provides to his clients and his client-centric approach to both tax and tax law. He is thorough, experienced and well-versed in the tax code, but most importantly he makes every client feel like they are his only client. No question is too difficult for him to answer, or too inane for his time. For these reasons, I highly endorse this lawyer."
