Immediate response.
Mr Bailey replied to my question almost immediately. He was knowledgeable, & not only gave me information on my son's case, but was actually willing to look up the case. Part of the issue involves something in another State. Mr Bailey is not licensed in that state so we can't go any further with him, but now we know what to do. I would recommend anyone to contact Mr Bailey.

Honest, trustworthy, and incredibly hardworking
He went above and beyond in making sure an FTA warrant was recalled and got me pretrial diversion for an issue in city court. This was all in a case that, at the time, I was not sure would be easily resolved. He was very communicative through the whole process and made me feel at ease when we were in court. I always recommend him to everyone I know, no matter what kind of legal need they have!

Excellent Representation
Attorney Bailey went above and beyond in his representation of me obtaining an expungemt. He made me feel comfortable and confident in the process. I highly recommend him.

I contacted Matthew during a very bleak time when options were limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed impossible. He provided excellent consultation and I hired a member of his team (geared more towards my case) as my attorney. I am grateful for his service and I recommend Matthew without reservation.
