Above and beyond anything I expected!!
Matt was my lawyer during my divorce, and he went above and beyond the entire year long process. You can tell from the moment you meet him that he is very passionate about his job and truly cares about his clients. One thing he said to me that stuck out the most when I signed my papers is “I am so proud of you for standing up for yourself and I hope you are proud of yourself as well”. I never thought at age 25 I would be going through a divorce but sometimes life does not go as we plan it. Matt supported me during the entire process and gave me the voice to not back down even when it got tough. I am forever grateful that God put this law firm in my path. Everyone here has truly been a blessing to me.

Exceeded Expectations
Matt and his entire team did an excellent job from start to finish. They made a difficult time in my life a little easier because they were in my corner during the divorce process. Matt's attention to detail and caring attitude was superior.

highly recommend Matt!
When my wife filed for a divorce, my life was turned upside down and almost lost everything My house, my son, my family and I can honestly say if I wouldnt have hired Matt I would have lost all those things. Looking back at the process I was very difficult to work with and not much help, But Matt stuck with me, was very professional and made complicated things, understandable, and is an unbelievable lawyer who geneuinely cared and wanted to help me and did. . he saw the good in me and worked his tail off to show the court and he did. he saw things I never would have and dont think any other lawyer would have and he helped me keep all the things I was guaranteed to lose. iMatts honesty, and straightforwardness to me about things, good and bad, was something I desperately needed at the time because it helped me get my life back in order which in the end helped me get my wife back. I have nothing but great things to say about Matt and I know anyone who hires him would say the same.

unique case = unique service
Matt did an excellent job of digging (deeply) in to my very unique situation. I know that no two divorces are the same, but mine was way out there. He put in the time and was prepared for trial. Thankful for his honesty, patience, and knowledge. Highly recommend!

Client
Matt did a phenomenal job working with me and helping to show me a future past the pain and hurt I was going through in the divorce. He was honest and made a truly painful time in my life to one of growing and a promise for the future. Matt cared for me and about me, much more than just a “case” on his desk but as a person. I was blessed to have hired Robertson and Easterling as my “team” in my corner.

Highly recommend Matt!!
Hiring Matt for my divorce was absolutely one of the best decisions I have ever made. This was the hardest and most heartbreaking time of my life, and somehow it was exactly what I needed to do. From start to finish, Matt worked non-stop for me and made sure that my needs were a priority. My case was difficult, emotional and at times very overwhelming for me. Matt showed a level of compassion, integrity, reassurance and honor that made all the difference in the world for me. More importantly, he is a trustworthy man, which makes him invaluable and an asset to the legal world and the community. His detailed knowledge, professionalism, passion for the law, strong character and overall standard of ethics are clear and also noteworthy. He was very confident I would receive a favorable outcome, and he was right! I cannot say enough good about Matt as a man of character, an exceptional attorney, and overall amazing human being! I highly recommend hiring Matt for your legal needs!!

The Best Lawyer Ever!!
Matt was referred to me by a family friend and prominent Jackson attorney, Mike Massey. He had wonderful things to say about Matt, and he was right! From the first visit, I could tell Matt was the attorney who cares! He was personable, professional, knowledgeable, confident, yet cared, really cared about me and my case from day 1. I feel I received the best attorney advice, but also personal advice and caring. He was always available and returned all calls immediately- My divorce ended as a success with my getting everything I needed, and everything Matt predicted. He was so patient with me and always told me not to worry, that I was in good hands, and I was! I would not HESITATE to recommend Matt to others, and , in fact, I already have. He is the best attorney with whom I have ever dealt. Everything ended well and happily-- All due to Matt.

I am proud to recommend Matt Easterling
During the darkest days of my life I was referred to Matt Easterling by a family member. He represented me in a very complicated custody case and divorce. And then again when the situation got worse. I was being attacked at every angle and I felt like Matt came to my rescue. He worked endlessly on my case to help me get the results that I was happy and comfortable with. I felt he was very knowledgeable and always felt like I was in good hands. I would not only recommend him, but highly recommend him to anyone in need. Thanks, Matt! For everything!

Matthew Easterling is Highly Recommended
Matt has helped me through a few of the roughest times in my life. I remember the first day I met with Matt in 2010, I walked in nervous and unsure and walked out feeling comforted and hopeful. He was very professional and trustworthy through my custody case. I never had a problem getting in touch with him. If he couldn't talk right then, I knew I would hear back from him very soon. He helped me get a "deal" that I feel I wouldn't have gotten if I had not hired him as my attorney. After such a great experience with him, it only came natural to refer my brother to him four years later to represent him in a battle of his own. This case was very complex and Matt handled everything to our complete satisfaction. There are no words I can write in this review to genuinely express how thankful my family and I are for Matt Easterling. He is very knowledgeable and trustworthy and has shown us in many ways that he has our best interest at heart. He let us know this was far beyond a "job" to him, as his actions showed his compassion for us all. Matt is a God-Send and we are so thankful for him. I hope you never find yourself in need of an attorney, but if you do, my family and I highly recommend him! And Matt, if you read this THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for all you have helped us through, for not only being a great attorney but a constant source of support to us!

Highly recommended
Matthew Easterling was the epitome of both professionalism and compassion as he helped our family during an absolute legal crisis. Our case was unique in many aspects; including the fact that a criminal court component was involved. He not only handled our family court issues wonderfully, but he was an asset to our criminal attorney in those proceedings as well. We appreciated his realistic approach and his candor - giving us the truths of the matter and not expressing just what we wanted to hear. We highly recommend you meet with him if you are ever need of family legal services.
