While passing the bar in both Indiana and Texas in the same year, I decided early on to stay true to my roots as a Hoosier and remain close to family in Johnson County, Indiana. For eight-and-a-half years, I practiced with one of the largest law firms in the county where I focused on bankruptcy, consumer rights, foreclosure defense, and general litigation. In 2015, I decided to make the leap and open the Law Office of Matthew M. Cree, where I continue to provide personal, caring service to those facing the most stressful times of their lives.

In my personal life, I enjoy the company of my family, which includes four dogs and five cats. The menagerie of animals most likely has something to do with my serving as the president of the board of directors for the Humane Society of Johnson County and my seeming inability to say "no" to taking in stray kittens. I have a deep love for my community and am proud to be a 2010 graduate of Leadership Johnson County. More recently, I had the pleasure of assisting with the development of a non-profit destination marketing organization to promote and grow Johnson County tourism and business.

A+ Rating Highly Recommended
Professional, very easy going, considerate and he knows everything about bankruptcy inside and out. If you hire him you will rest easy knowing that he will go to bat for you regarding your bankruptcy case.

Great Lawyer
When I went to see Mr Cree I was really nervous, but he's so easy to talk to. You can make payments that you can afford, but he can't file until that is done. Mine didn't take long at all so if you need a great lawyer he's the one, you won't be sorry. Donna

Matt was great in helping us navigate our real estate issue. He gave sound advice and clarified many things we had trouble understanding. This helped us to decide our best course of action which Matt handled to our satisfaction. Our only complaint would be that Matt wasn't the greatest initially at keeping us in the loop. After expressing our concern with that he addressed it and it was a non-issue. Without Matt's assistance we would of had a very, very, long road.

Response from Matthew Cree January 15, 2015
Thank you for the review and feedback! It's through constructive feedback like yours that we can continue to improve the level of service for our clients. One thought that I have is implementing a client portal where documents can be uploaded and exchanged to help further communication. Do you think that would be helpful or something that you would use in the future?
