From my first meeting with Matt I found him to be an extraordinary young lawyer who put me immediately at ease. He is extremely knowledgeable and conveyed information to me in easy to understand language. He came up with some excellent suggestions for me in my estate planning. I would wholeheartedly recommend him.

I couldn't be more pleased with my choice in Matthew. He is always available to answer my questions, and I have had many as we went and continue to go through the process of elder care planning.
Matthew has a high degree of knowledge in elder law, develops creative solutions and pays great attention to detail.
I would and will recommend him to any needing an elder law attorney.

Having something happen to a parent while you are thousands of miles away is hard , but having to manage healthcare and family care laws in another state can magnify the crisis. Matt walked our family step by step through the medicare and medicaid programs .
He was prompt in returning phone calls and thorough with his explanations on Florida family care law. With out him, we could not have been able to execute time sensitive documents and provide the best care for our mother. Highly recommended!

I wholeheartedly endorse Matthew R. Rheingans as an excellent lawyer with a tremendous client focus. Not only have I come to know Matt as a fellow lawyer in the community, but I have also had the pleasure of working on a matter with him. Clearly, Matt is very talented and is highly skilled and knowledgeable in his practice areas of elder law, real estate, probate and estate planning. In addition, his experience as a trial lawyer greatly enhances and complements his skills and abilities, adding even greater value to the services he provides his clients.

Matthew is an extremely talented lawyer and very knowledgeable in his dedicated practice areas. Not only is he an excellent lawyer, but he also maintains the highest sense of ethics and morality. Plus, his familiarity with and experience within the community makes him a strong advocate for all his clients. I have referred Matthew several cases and my clients have always been very pleased with his representation. I would certainly want Matthew in my corner.
