Practice areas

I love being prepared. Whether it is planning for a family vacation, backing up my photographs in multiple online locations, or double-checking the batteries in my bike light before my morning ride, knowing that I’ve prepared for contingencies helps me and my family rest easier and get on with life. Being prepared and organized brings a sense of freedom, like a safety net.

I bring this same passion for preparedness and organization to my law practice.  I want to help you create that same safety net for your family.

I want you to be able to go out for an evening without your children knowing that they are legally protected if something happens to you. I want you to be able to travel knowing that someone else is ready to handle your finances in the event of an emergency. I want you to go into surgery knowing that your family and your doctors are aware of your wishes for medical care. And I want you to spend your later years enjoying your life, not worrying about what might happen without a plan in place.

Mostly, I want you to know the sense of calm and security that comes with being prepared. Because even though we can’t prevent bad things from happening, we can  prepare for them by putting our safety nets into place.

Don’t you want that too?

Best Lawyer Ever
Matthew Perkins was the lawyer I chose to handle the settling of my daughter's estate, and I am certainly glad I did. I had plenty of questions, and he always had an answer for me. When I contacted him or his office, I always received a timely response. He is young, energetic, intelligent, professional, and very knowledgeable. One of the things I admire most about him is that he is willing to take on new challenges. Hiring Matthew Perkins to handle this legal matter was a very wise choice. I would recommend him if you are looking for a lawyer who will take the time to sit down and explain things to you. He never left me in the dark as we went through the necessary steps to set up and then close the estate. I could not be more pleased with the professionalism that I received from Matthew Perkins. If you are in need of the services of an attorney, at least set up a consultation with him. I believe that you will be very impressed with his can-do attitude. If I need legal services in the future, Matthew Perkins is definitely the attorney that I plan to hire.

piece of mind
Matt helped me and my husband with our estate planning. He was very conscientious and professional. He was also understanding of our different desires concerning our Living Will and ADH. He is very patient and helpful.

Time to update the will
We recently met with Matt to update our wills. With two meetings with him we were able to complete the task. He was very knowledgeable of the laws and helpful with making the process easier than we expected.
