About me

Passionately concerned with the rights of those accused of crimes, I stand up for those our society seeks to punish.  I specialize in the defense of felony and misdemeanor criminal charges and asserting the civil rights of citizens abused by our criminal justice system.

  • Jason Scott Gilbert

    I endorse this lawyer. Matt is an exceptional advocate for his clients. When I was a prosecutor, I always knew I could rely on everything Matt told me. His integrity and reputation worked to the benefit of his clients in every case we were opposed on.

    Jason Gilbert Criminal defense Attorney
    Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter

  • Matthew Stanley Easterling

    Early in my career, I represented a couple in a Family Law case which had an unfortunate criminal element, and my clients made the wise decision to hire Matt to mount their defense. I could not have been more impressed. So, in the years since, I have directed all in need of Matt's talents in his direction. Anyone in the unfortunate position of needing a criminal defense attorney should contact him immediately and consider it a blessing if they are able to retain his firm's services. He is a master at his craft.
