About me

Matthew Abdo has been working with his father and partner, Cy Abdo, at the Abdo Law Firm since 2010. Matthew specializes in criminal work in the Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne Counties. Matthew believes that good results in criminal work stem from really caring about his cases and clients. Him and the Firm attempt to embody this philosophy through thoroughness, empathy, preparation, and keeping an open mind.


 


Academically speaking, Matthew graduated from law school and undergrad in the top of his classes. In law school, he worked for both a large law firm and a Federal Judge. After passing the bar he entered the private practice with his father, where he continues to work today.
