Terrific Attorney!
Matthew is an excellent attorney! Not only did he get my case resolved in only a few weeks, but he was an extremely effective communicator! He is responsive, smart, articulate, and well versed in the laws. I highly recommend this attorney!

The best in his practice of Law
In the Book of Proverbs, it states that the innocent speak first, that is until the cross examination begins. God placed Matthew Konecky’s services when I needed it. He is professional, courteous, diligent and knowledgeable in his practice of law. Refreshingly and honestly transparent. If you need representation in a court of law, you would like to have him next to you and not as the opposing counsel. If you’re in need of a civil/ criminal matter representation, do not hire anyone else. Hire Matthew Konecky, you won’t regret it.

Best in Town!
Mr. Konecky represented my son as a Criminal Defense Atty. From the moment we met, he never spoke down to us, never made you feel worse than the charges. In fact, he gave us hope after hearing all the details. He kept us up to date at all times. He would contact us via email or phone or both! And never sugar coated the defense. In the end, charges were greatly reduced for my son, and we couldn't be happier! Mr. Konecky got my son a 2nd chance to better himself and prove to be a better citizen!

Case Dismissed
This lawyer is fantastic!!!! I cant say enough good words but he takes time with you. He treated me like family! He was excited about the work he had to do. Never ever spoke rude or uninterested in what needed to be done. Best of all he was not judgemental. I cant say enough good things about him. And to be frank if you dont hire Mr Konecky dont expect to have your case really looked at and dismissed!!!!!

What's it worth?
I was caught between a rock and a hard spot with Martin County police charging me with simple battery, and with my career at risk. I could not afford to be taken for granted by an attorney that lack the skills and motivation. I placed several calls around the Martin County area seeking a confident lawyer that practice good transparency, when I came across Matt Konecky's ad. I place a message on his answering machine and within a minute or so, he immediately responsed, and being pro-actively engaged by pulling up the case and the location of the event given me a sign of drive and a confident feeling that he would be the man for the Job. I was right, the case was dis-missed within a couple of months, without me ever setting a foot in court. Just think...the courts place a 1 year deal on the table that would have ended my career. So, if your freedom and career is worth it, dig a little deeper to get the result you deserve, remember you get what you pay for!!!

I feel very lucky to have found the Law offices of Matthew Konecky, PA. Matthew and his staff are wonderful! Matthew took the time to listen to me and answer all my many questions.

He also allowed me to tell my side of the story without any judgment. That was extremely important to me and it meant a lot (Thank You Matthew)!! Matthew and his staff are very caring, concerned and committed to the well-being of his clients. He also has a wonderful monthly newsletter filled with all sorts of pertinent and important information about law and other things.

Fantastic attorney that cares about his clients
I talked to several attorneys about my legal matter and because there wasn't some 6 figure payout potential most attorneys dismissed me and I lost hope. I gave it one last shot and contacted Matthew's office based on his reviews. I'm so lucky to have found him. In a matter of weeks he found a solution to my claim. He always remained honest and realistic with me and had my best interest at heart. Thank you so much for being a patient, understanding, and fast acting attorney!

Thanks Matthew, I am keeping you on speed dial!

Clearing up past mistakes!
I recently contacted the law office of Matt Konecky, to hire him, in helping me clear up a court case in south Florida from many years ago. Just after speaking to Matt, I felt comfortable and knowing that he could handle the case. He was very knowledgeable in Florida law and how the court system works. It turns out, it was the best phone call I have made in years. 2 short days later, my cases was on it's way to being dismissed. I was able to take a sigh of relief and knowing that this trouble was on it's way to being over after many years of worrying about it. Thanks to Matt Konecky, I can being a new life free of worrying. Thanks Matt, Awesome Job!

The perfect attorney
I never thought I would need legal services until the day that I did. I reached out to Matthew Konecky’s office and I spoke with him that same day. I met with him that same week to get started on resolving my circumstances. Matthew and his staff were prompt at returning phone calls and communicating relevant information about my case. They took their time to ensure that my questions were answered and that I had a clear understating of every aspect of the processes to resolve the case. I cannot thank them enough for helping to get my case resolved quickly. Their professionalism and level of attention exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs assistance.

I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Konecky again to anyone seeking great representation!!
I had the occasion to refer Matthew Konecky's services to a family member and saw what a terrific job he and his staff did in handling their case. What I observed was an adept professional who knows his job, the law and who made certain all the facts were accurately presented.

He employed his skills and the law to insure the law was carried out in a fair manner that created a successful outcome.

Keeping the law in its lane
I have gone to Matthew twice now for traffic related issues. In one, he took care of me after I had hit another car, panicked, and drove away (Partly because I was already running on a thin schedule). We had a free consultation and he had gotten us up to speed with the legal info so that we knew exactly how the situation was. We hired him and he got us through the case with very minimal expenses, no need for trial. In the second case he took, I had been pulled over and falsely given a speeding ticket, stating I had been speeding. I sent the ticket to Matthew and he got it taken care of in pre-trial, no struggle or teeth-pulling on our part. He is a fantastic attorney, he guides you through the logistics of the legal system without getting you lost, is very upfront and honest, and will make sure you get the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend him to anyone with a legal traffic issue.

The Best Lawyer Ever
I must say when I found out I could possibly be a convicted felon I was depressed, and so not my self. I called 11 lawyers pretending links I was looking for someone to represent my sister when in fact it was for me. Everyone basically said the same thing. “Pay them half of the money up front and they’ll represent me in court. They’ll try their best to keep me from going to prison but they can’t promise anything. Of the 11 lawyers Mr. Konecky was the only one that offered me a free consultation aside from the first initial phone consult. He called me back throughout the week to ask me how I was doing and even was on the look out to see if a warrant for my arrest was out. He told me NOT to in and make a statement because they will more than likely throw me in jail. I didn’t have the money that he required at the moment so he set up a payment plan with me and every time I could pay more I did until I paid it all. He set me up with a bondsman and he notified when a warrant was out for my arrest. It was just after the New Years and I promise you NO ONE knew I was arrested. I had family over and I told them I had to do some Overtime at work. I was gone for almost 4 hours due to the whole booking and processing. But I returned home soon after. I remembered calling Mr. Konecky because I was in nursing school asking him if I should quit being that I have this arrest on my record and the case is still pending. He said well are you failing? I said no I’m passing. He said well why quit. Don’t let this detour you from following your dreams. If you are convicted then we look at other options. But he was pretty sure that I would not be convicted or sentenced to jail. That little chat that we had pushed me to pursue my license and I did just that. I graduated May 31st and I became licensed on July 26th! Last week I got my court date for my expungement. Not only did I over come this hideous obstacle in my life I did it with the help of Matthew Konecky! He’s a God Sent! Thank you!

High compliment
Attorney Matthew Konecky is a smart and knowledgeable lawyer in West Palm Beach, FL, his expertise is impeccable. If I could help one person, if not more, choose the RIGHT lawyer, the FIRST time, for your personal needs, it would be to absolutely without any reservations obtain and hire Mr. Konecky. I have never known an attorney to be available to return your call in between a hectic daily schedule and treat you with the utmost respect and complete understanding. Amazing, and unheard of in the law profession. Mr. Konecky is a good man and great lawyer, two of the most important traits to have when facing a stressful situation in your life. Your best interest and outcome is Mr. Konecky’s goal. A sound and intelligent choice you will be thankful that you made.
