Professional, Friendly and kind.
I got a citation in Birmingham AL. I hired an attorney who will remain nameless to help me with the ticket. To get a hold of this law firm was a nightmare and communication was none existent. A quick Google search put my in touch with Matthew (Matt) Theus Law Firm. I called him. He didn't answer but got back to me in a timely manner. He explained what my options where and we proceeded from there. By speaking with Matt, I could tell he had a lot of experience with the courts in and around Birmingham AL. Matt was always on tope of things. He communicated with me via calls and emails. He called and emailed me before he presented my case. He called and emailed me when a court date was set. He called and emailed me 2 days prior to the court date to make sure I would appear in court. It was always on my mind and I wouldn't have forgotten it. As a CDL holder, my License is the way I provide and feed my family. It felted good to know that he remembered and would not miss my court day. Matt was on time on my court day. He explained everything that was going on. I am absolutely satisfied with the out come of my case. If you are a CDL holder, I hope and pary that you do not get a ticket in Alabama. I hope and pray that you do not get a ticket period, but If you do, call Matthew Theus's Law Firm. He is professional and will try his best to help you get a position outcome.

Tickets dismissal
Attorney Theus gave superior service. He replies back quickly and is very thorough. I recommend Mr. Theus for any problems with traffic tickets. All of my husband's tickets were taken care of without any worries or concern.

A man that cares about your case & his work
OK I got appointed Matt for my case and I will let you know right now this man was on top of his game he kept me informed about what was going on in the case he did everything he was supposed to do and he even went above and beyond and made things better so this is definitely a man to hire to represent you on a case.

Excellent Service: Ticket dismissed
My case was assigned to Matt by Offtherecord.com . Right after that, Matt sent me an email to let me know a time he would call me. He discussed the entire situation of the ticket and assured me that he would do his best to get this resolved in my favor. He updated me as needed regularly about my case. In the end, case was dismissed by the judge. Right away, he called me to inform the dismissal and made my day, followed by the court dismissal order through email. I am glad that my insurance will not go up saving couple of hundreds. I will strongly recommend his services.

Best outcome I could have hoped for
I was out in touch with Matt Theus via Off The Record. He reached out to me quickly, and kept me informed throughout the process. I cannot thank him enough for all his hard work.

Awesome
I can not express how much I would recommend Matt if you need an attorney. He is very professional and highly responsive. Our son received a speeding ticket and Matt handled everything perfectly. We all make mistakes and he treated us so kind and made us feel comfortable. I am so glad we found him and what a great attorney. Sincerely I am, Rick Robinson

.
Mr Theus was able to negotiate permission for me to attend defensive driving school when I thought that it wouldn’t be possible. By me attending the course I have avoided a hike in my insurance and loss of driving a company vehicle.

Traffic citation
Received a traffic citation that I ran a red light when I didn’t. Immediately went to mr Theus and told him I dint have time to deal with this issue and didn’t want it going on my insurance or against my record because I have a commercial driver’s license. Mr Theus told me not to worry and began working on my case. Two days later I got an email saying not to worry he should be able to get it handled without affecting my record. I have never been in and out of court so fast he showed up on time mind you and had me leaving in less than 15 minutes with a 100 dollar court fee and a dismissal. Thank you Mr Theus hopefully I won’t have to be back but if I ever need a lawyer it will be you.
