the best of the best
Honestly the best attorney that I have ever had. Ive had many attorney's in the past dealing with tenants and evictions. I didn't realize that I wasn't being treated the wrong way until i met Mr. Martell and he treated me with the utmost respect and he really listened to what I had to say and I didn't receive that with any other attorney and in this case i really needed someone understanding and compassionate to help me through this difficult time in my life. So needless to say Mr. Martell handles all my cases and always will from here on out. Many thanks to you sir.

Response from Matthew Martell March 31, 2021
Thanks Bryan! However, I do need to clarify that I'm not board-certified in marital and family law. I never claimed that I was board-certified while I was representing you and I think this is just a misunderstanding. But I appreciate that you were happy with my legal services. Thank you very much for your kind comments!

Great family law attorney
Matt was my attorney for my divorce. I chose Matt after reading many positive reviews and then meeting with him and his paralegal in person. Matt is extremely professional, knowledgeable, experienced, and detail oriented. My profession requires a lot of attention to detail and an intimate knowledge of the issue I’m handling. I was expecting the same from an attorney and Matt fit that perfectly. My divorce was a higher conflict divorce and Matt always had a plan of action in place for the various stages of my divorce. He also explained his rationale for approaching things various ways very clearly. Matt was always prepared and organized. One of Matt’s biggest strengths was guiding me on how to approach various personal situations since I had a minor child and I never was divorced before so I had no idea how to handle various issues. Matt had very practical advice, beyond his legal advice. Matt is very experienced, knows the legal processes, and explained to me what to expect given my personal situation. I personally like to be informed of what to expect so I can plan accordingly and Matt did that. Overall, I highly recommend Matt as a divorce attorney since he will not only fight for you, but he will also educate you about what is the best approach to follow given your specific situation and case details.

Matt is the attorney you need on your side. He is professional, accessible, responsive and overall an extremely skilled attorney. My ex wanted to make life miserable for me but failed because Matt gave me peace of mind. He is a fierce advocate. I am eternally grateful for his services and I highly recommend him!

One in a Million
While I am not an avid reviewer, there was no possible way I could not share my rarified experience with Mr. Martell and his law office. It is not very often one receives the kind and wise information that I have from the Law Offices of Matthew Z. Martell, P.A. I can not emphasis more highly, not only what an exceptional Attorney Mr. Martell is, but underscore his kind, patient and generous spirit. Attorney's are often stereotyped. I don't know about that, only that if there is a negative stereotype of his profession, he has debunked it on every single level. In the world of psychotherapy, where I practice, I am highly aware of what brings people and how anxious or fearful they might be. Matt exemplifies this same sensitivity in assuaging clients fears, while providing exception legal advice. He is the kind of attormey that you hope to find, rare as that is. Do yourself a favor if you want more than just legal expertise and representation, but a caring and gentle experience toboot, pick up the phone and call Matthew Martell. I am deeply grateful that I did.

One of the Best in Town!
We found Matt and his staff when we needed a lawyer for the second time to revisit visitation, child support and alimony. WOW! We couldn’t believe how easily accessible he was and how effective he is. My wife’s attorney suddenly became agreeable and ready to work with us once Matt got involved in my case. Matt always answered all my questions promptly and pointed out things we missed. He was always very organized and I was impressed when I saw my casefile. He knew where every piece of paper was. Matt called back when he said he would, laid out a plan of action, and followed it. All we can say is, “why didn’t we find Matt sooner!” Thanks, Matt and the staff at Law Offices of Matt Martell!

Excellent Divorce Attorney-Highly Recommend
Mr. Martell's knowledge of divorce law and tenacity is top notch. He offered sound advice throughout my case, and although we disagreed on certain demands that were unreasonable from my ex wife, he fought for me and represented me in a very professional manner. His impressive commitment was steadfast throughout the course of the case. Mr. Martell is a very bright attorney, his communications skills, tenacity and commitment are all excellent. I would highly recommend him to any person who needs the best legal representation possible.

Amazing Professional Attorney - High Profile Divorce Attorney
Divorce is never easy but Matt really went above an beyond with my divorce. He kept me informed and used his expertise to ensure it moved along as quick as possible. My divorce was very complicated with a custody battle and a significant amount of assets to be fairly divided. I consider him a "one stop shop" he has access to many professionals that helped with division of assets and the custody situation etc... I would highly recommend him to anyone and specifically recommend him to anyone with a complicated divorce that is high profile.

Martell Tops for More Complicated Divorces
Matthew Martell is hugely knowledgeable, a product of his long experience. He's hard-working and possessing of both good judgment and fully professional demeanor. Martell's is a family business, with his wife serving as office manager. It's an effective team, putting forward the personal touch and offering some assurance everyone is on the same script. While I participated in all decisions arising during and after my complicated divorce, I soon learned to trust entirely in Mr. Martell's recommendations, and his explanations for them. When recommendations pointed toward more than one viable option, Martell worked with me to choose the one which would satisfy me the most. Having such counsel meant the Opposing Counsel was outclassed, and one might as well be on the better represented side. Martell's work ethic is also pretty amazing. He works full days, yet very frequently emailed me his product late at night or on weekends. He could have pushed himself less sometimes, as I know some other attorneys might, but he didn't. HIs dedication to his clients was also reflected by the fact that during part of my divorce period, attorney Martell firmly turned away all new clients. Matthew Martell is a detail man, almost (but not) to a fault. I was always kept up to date, usually by immediate emails, of all communications with opposing counsel, the court or third parties. These updates normally included the exact texts exchanged and an explanation of their significance. Probably everyone wants a moderately aggressive attorney, who at the same time is respected enough by his legal peers to have their valuable respect. This is the case with Matthew Martell. He clearly is well-regarded by his peers, and therefore probably by judges, too. Attorney Martell is also a specialist in trusts. While this isn't of significance to some potential clients, it can be invaluable to those with more assets at stake. This expertise was very valuable to me. I don't have sufficient experience to comment authoritatively on relative attorney costs. Attorney Martell's billing rate is competitive. He's always working hard and always "on message." The costs were more than I hoped for, but the work performed on my complicated case was far more than I foresaw. Most importantly, the results were very good, and therefore in my eyes his services were overall excellent value.
