Could not
When SB288 passed, I knew I wanted to get my record expunged. I contacted Attorney Greg Mathew’s to help me with the process. They took on my case without hesitation and told me there was no guarantee but they would try their best. They answered all my questions about the process and Attorney Greg helped me understand how the court hearing would go along with making sure I was comfortable. The judge granted my expungement and my criminal record will now be destroyed. Something else they do is contact background check agencies to make sure the record is removed. I am so thankful for Attorney Greg for helping me put the past behind me and move forward with my future. Attorney Greg and his paralegal Raleigh were a pleasure to work with. I could not recommend this firm enough.

Best Choice I Made!
Attorney Matthews and staff served my needs and my rights with attention to detail and expediency. I felt heard by Mr. Matthews and he fought for me calmly and fairly. He and his staff were very respectful to me and they also had a great reputation with the court and the judge I was before. His representation at my trial far surpassed my expectations in professionalism and decorum. I would recommend him to anyone seeking remedy with the court.

Possibly the best expungement attorney in the State of Ohio
Attorney Mathews is the epitome of a professional, skilled, and dedicated attorney. Mr. Mathews handled my expungement case with extreme care and dedication. He does not use "cookie cutter" motions / filings - he examines IN DETAIL the specifics of the case and constructs his filings accordingly. He was able to successfully seal a violent crime- which are the most difficult to seal. Highly recommend for a second chance in your life!

Successful expungement, very pleased.
I was pleasantly surprised with the service I received in hiring Gregory Matthews. He was very thorough in investigating the details of my case, and when I had to appear in front of the court for my expungement he made sure to meet with the prosecutor and judge before court started and that made the process go as smoothly as possible. I would definitely recommend anyone seeking an expungement to hire him.

Amazing Company
Very thankful and Blessed. I reached out to Mr. Mathews, I explained to him about the problems I had with getting an expungement. I had 3 prior convictions which was hard to get sealed because they were repeated convictions all of the same charges. Greg and his company took my case and never judged my situation. He worked hard to get my record sealed and did just that. I really felt like I would never get my record clean from all my mistakes I made in my 20s. I would recommend Mathews & Gill, LLP to EVERYONE who needs to clean up their past mistakes.

Excellent results delivered !
Greg knew the law and his screening tool made it very easy to get to the heart of the matter. He is thorough and well prepared, and prepared me for what to expect from the court, and was able to advise me on all the pitfalls. In the end, Greg got the results he advertises!

Honest, Hard-Working, Compassionate Attorney
I hired Greg to possibly seal a F5 felony. I had a previous conviction that courts sometimes say exclude me from being able to seal any records. Greg was honest with me and let me know that he could not guarantee success but that he was willing to work hard to help me. He was well prepared for the court hearing, and the court ruled to seal the record. :) This was a very stressful and embarrassing process to go through, however, Greg was easy to work with and didn't make me feel dumb for my past mistakes. It was and is clear to me that Greg cares about his clients. I highly recommend Greg.

My experience with Mathews & Gill
I would like to thank staff and Attorney Mathews for your hard work on my behalf. The staff at Mathews & Gill were all very professional and pleasant to work with, from even the initial contact. I tried to get my case expunged before from a previous law firm I consulted several years before. Unfortunately, the law firm could not represent me. So I filed on my own - that was a futile experience and not successful. I was grateful that Mathews & Gill agreed to represent me. I turned in all documentation that they asked for in a timely manner, and they did the rest. They kept me informed every step of the way. I was impressed by the level of expertise they had with expungement cases. I was also very relieved when the judge granted my expungement request and I was able to move forward and given a fresh start.

The Best of the Best!
When it came to something such as an expungement that will greatly impact my future, I wanted an attorney who knows the ins and outs of expungement law represent me rather than someone who may handle an occasional expungement. I opted for Atty. Mathews due to his expertise in this area of law. I saw no benefit in hiring a local lawyer since expungement laws are state laws. I appreciate the straightforward pricing available on the website. The first law office in which I inquired arranged a consultation for a hefty price which I felt uneasy about. I then spoke to Marcus, paralegal to Attorney Mathews, and was blown-away by his extensive knowledge regarding the intricacies of Ohio expungement laws and all the potential outcomes of my case. After speaking to Marcus, I felt confident this was the law office for me. He was incredibly professional--he was careful not to offer any false hope or promises and put no pressure on me to move forward if I wasn't ready. The court in which my case occurred is very quick and the process took no more than 2 months from start to finish. Atty. Mathews successfully petitioned for my appearance to be waived which was one of the most important aspects of my case for me since I am so busy. They made the process so simple for me that I never even got the pleasure of meeting Marcus or Atty. Mathews. I would love to thank them in person for the excellent work they do!

Experienced and Trustworthy
I did not want to go through the expungement process alone and I am very satisfied that I used Gregory Mathews. He made the process simple for me and gave me plenty of confidence that we would win and that my record would be expunged. His experience dealing with these expungements made a great difference and lead to our successful result. I can't thank him enough for this life-changing process. Now that my record is expunged I am able to further my career. Thanks again!

New Beginning
Do not hesitate to call Attorney Greg Mathews and his staff. I first contacted them in May 2017. I’m a very private person. I knew I wanted to get my case sealed but was reluctant and nervous – so I put it off. Bad move on my part! I contacted Greg again this year (2019) to finally get my record sealed once and for all. Greg and his staff explained everything and helped me every step of the way - now my record is sealed! They made it so easy. Looking back, I wished I followed through on this earlier. If you’re ready to get your life back, CALL GREG NOW and you will not be disappointed!! I found they are trustworthy and very respectful. Thanks to Greg and his Staff, I got my life back! Forever Grateful
