When I divorced in Indiana in 1991, my attorney failed to properly complete the necessary paperwork (QDRO) I would need to file for my earned portion of pension from my marriage. 20 years later, my ex's attorney went after me all the way to the Indiana Supreme Court to try to prevent me from getting the pension that was my legal right in the divorce. Matt defended me, winning the Supreme Court case, even setting a precedent for the state. It dragged out for over 2 years, my ex's attorney costing a lot in fees. I am happy to have had Matt in my corner, and even felt sorry for my ex, having Mike Bosch representing him. I won. Matt was awesome.

Represented me in Porter County, did a great job. Kept me informed, always answered my calls and texts.
Very friendly was more like a friend than my attorney.

When Matt was in Ohio he was a great resource for me to get answers to all manner of questions. I respected both his legal knowledge and his willingness to help whenever asked. I have no doubt he provides the same attention and knowledge to every legal matter he handles.
