Professional With Attention to Detail
My wife and I were purchasing our dream home and were under contract with the sellers. Two weeks before closing, they decided to pull out of the contract. We immediately contacted Matt, who explained our options in detail. Matt was very knowledgeable and understanding of our situation. We hired him to represent us and negotiated a new closing date with the sellers, ensuring that they went through with the sale. We kept Matt on through the closing and he and his staff were amazing! They were very attentive and kept us informed every step of the way, making the process stress-free! My advice is to hire Matt from the beginning for a smooth transaction and the very best in professional representation!

I recommend Matthew Foreman to all my family and friends. He did an excellent job for us suing a company for non payment. He kept us informed all the way through the process and we are very happy with his work. He is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I hired Mr. Forman with the hope that he will recover all that was owed to us and he did exactly what I expected. He is an excellent attorney and I'm sure he will grow very fast as he cares about his clients.

Matthew Foreman Great Lawyer
I hired Matthew about 5 years ago, All I can say about this lawyer is "he has your back". We worked through many complex issues and Matt never backed down from the challenge. I would absolutely use Matthew again.

Attorney Matt Foreman is an Oxymoron!!!
If Honest Lawyer = Oxymoron... Matt Foreman MUST be an Oxymoron! I have been working with Matt for the past 3 years on my divorce case. In those 3 years I have grown to trust Mr Foreman not only as my attorney but as a friend. I can recall an instance about a year ago where I had called and left not only a voice message with his secretary but had also sent an email with some issues I needed resolved. Mr Foreman is usually VERY quick to respond, but after a week of not hearing back from him I decided to follow up with him just in case. He was extremely apologetic for not getting back to me sooner and was visibly upset with his secretary for not handing him the message in a timely manner. I can honestly say that happened once and once only. Matthew hasn't only been my attorney through my divorce, but has also been a friend, voice of reason, confidant and a little bit of a therapist through this ordeal (divorce is stressful)! Everything he has said he is/was going to do, he has followed up and kept his word with each instance. He is hard working, honest, reliable, intelligent and kind. I know I know.. those adjectives don't usually describe a lawyer! Well, you haven't met Matt Foreman yet! Matt's job as my attorney is to guide and represent me, he knows his job and he does it well. He never forces anything on me, rather he just uses his knowledge, skill and expertise to guide me down what he feels is not only a good path for me, but for all involved. He takes into consideration the negative repercussions things may have in which I may not have had enough foresight to make an informed decision. If you are looking for a sleazy type attorney who is only interested in what he/she can gain from you, this is not the attorney you are looking for. If you are looking for someone who has your best interest at heart, gives you honest and truthful advice and will work for you, give Mr Matthew Foreman a call, you won't be disappointed. Thank you for everything you have done for me and continue to do, day in day out. I appreciate it more than you will ever know!!! I would recommend Mr. Matthew Foreman over and over again!

Family Law
As if divorces aren't hard enough, add in the stress of trying to divide assets and figuring out which direction to go. Matthew Foreman represented and guided me the whole way through this process.His professionalism and promptness made the experience a lot less stressful, as he assured my best interest first. I highly recommend Mr Foreman for any family,business or personal injury law. I personally have used him for business aside from family law and have been nothing short of extremely satisfied. I've also referred him to close friends for personal injury and his commitment to his clients has been superb.

Matthew A Foreman - Florida's Attourney
I hired Matt first of all because of his strong community ties. He is well known on the Nature Coast for being a great lawyer and an upstanding citizen in Hernando county. My case started in July of 2014 and Matt worked late nights to get all the information where it needed to be for a fair settlement. There is nothing I can say negatively about him because, no matter how big of a work load he has, he will make the time to THOROUGHLY take care of you. He has not only become my lawyer but also one of my most trusted friends throughout this.

Great Lawyer, Wonderful Results
Matthew handled himself professionally throughout the entire process. He constantly stayed in touch keeping me updated with any new info as it arose. Everything worked out as we had hoped and can not say anything bad about my experience. Great lawyer.

Genuinly cares about you and your needs as a client and not just what you amount to in potential fees.
I'm more than happy to write this positive review for Matthew, and not just because we won our case, (which we did) but because of how I was treated as a client. As a client I felt understood, cared about and important to him. My custody case was rather long, lasting almost 3 years. Matthew maintained the same concerned and caring attitude and approach through out the entire process. This was by no means a slam dunk case. This required mass amounts of patience, intelligence and positive reinforcement. As a father fighting for full custody this was always an uphill battle. Though the law has evolved to give the father more/equal rights it is still very hard as a father to get that treatment...its understandable why a court may favor a mother sometimes, but that doesn't make it right. My point is, that through this 3 year battle Matthew always made time for me, always explained my positions, always gave me the correct advice (Not just advice I wanted to hear, but advice I needed to hear) remembered important facts when I could not, and most important NEVER lost focus. It's difficult to put into words how I really feel about this entire process. Its been a roller coaster of a ride, as one would expect. I'm just so very thankful I had Matt riding it a long with me. I couldn't have done it without him, and his abilities in the judicial arena were just perfect. Thank you Matt, thank you very very much!!!

Man of his word
I was recommended to Matt about a year ago from a friend of mine who is a well known Corp. Attorney in Tampa to handle a nasty divorce case. I hired him on sight at our consult because he made me very comfortable in his mannerism and blunt no sugar coating antics. Since then Matt has been on top of every obstacle that has been thrown his way down to emergency hearings, depositions and meditations. He actually knows your case which you will find most attorneys can't tell you all the details of your case . Matt can recall details without shuffling through files which tells me that I'm not a paycheck to him but instead a client , a person, and a mother who he truly wants to help. He has always been upfront about risk, strategy, cost and correspondence. I am a hard person to win over and I would recommend Matt any day of the week. He is the attorney you know is truly on your side, in your corner and has your back and will stand beside you through your triumphs and tough times. He also won't walk away with an arm or leg in the process. He is VERY fair for the work he does. If you are looking for a well educated, professional, fair and honest attorney who will go the extra length than you will find it in Matt Foreman and be very pleased with your decision.

Not the best or worst
Hired Mr. Forman for business' real estate purchase, which flopped. We got beaten up pretty bad in court and might have avoided this if he had been more straight forward about his abilities. Other than that hes not very pleasant to his staff.

Review
I hired this lawyer for my divorce, He is young and witty, but acts as though he knows more than he actually does. He thinks of himself as a "super lawyer" that is better than anyone else. Turns out he is just a young buck just finding his wings. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS LAWYER TO ANYONE. My divorce has been nasty and he has been little to no help.

Response from Matthew Foreman February 26, 2015
I would briefly say that the person who wrote this is very unlikely to have been a client of mine and is more likely an opponent in a family law case. I have never had a person provide me with this kind of review of my legal services and there is nobody in my current list of clients who has made any complaint to me directly in this manner.
