Strong advocate for his clients
I recommend Jonathan Matthews and the attorneys at Gaddis & Matthews without reservation. I am an elderly woman who didn't think I could hold up through my day in court. Jonathan's knowledge and compassion made it a breeze and we got the remedy we wanted. He was very knowledgable and did a great job communicating the legal process to me. I was very pleased I chose Jonathan to represent me and would highly recommend him.

Excellent Attorney!
Jonathan Matthews is an excellent attorney! Jon has provided legal counsel to me on several occasions. Regardless of the size of the case, Jon was always very responsive and honest. He would never over bill and always had an appreciation of my time. Each time we would meet, he was efficient and constantly looking out for my best interest. He would instill a confidence into me that would make me feel at ease, knowing that I am in good hands. Best of all, in our 3 year working relationship... I have never been disappointed with our outcomes! I give Jon the highest recommendation and encourage everyone to retain him.
