Matthew Abdo has really helped me clean up my license over the past 5 years. Initially I dug myself into a hole with attorneys not willing to fight for my traffic tickets. Which led to high points, and an extremely high cost of insurance. Matthew not only was successful when my record was bad, he has gotten several of my tickets thrown out. His prices are extremely reasonable for offering a priceless service. Thanks Matthew!

Matt did an exceptional job for me today. Involved in a Hit and Run in which I was staring at a 6 pt criminal offense for Leaving the Scene of an Accident with destruction of property, a 2 pt offense for Failure to Control Vehicle, $1000s in fines, probation, and possible jail time, Matt took control in court and got the job done. I followed his guidance just before court going through a very thorough process and consultation with him live in court. The results: 0 pts, no probation, no jail, and only $500 in fines paid up front immediately to the court; there is a 90 day Misdemeanor, but that may or may not show up on my record, and from the sounds of it, I don't think it will, but even if it does, considering what I was initially up against, this is one of the biggest personal wins I've ever experienced. Matt, on a professional and personal level, thank you for how you honorably represented me in court as you spoke very highly of my professional successes and my character; that was very admirable and will never be forgotten. I would advise anyone looking for an attorney that had similar charges to my own to look no further than Matthew Abdo.

Matt assisted me with a misdemeanor that was the case of wrong place, wrong time. The charge was dismissed, and Matt was explicitly professional and assuring through the whole process. I highly recommend both he and Cy for anyone's legal needs.

I had a domestic violence case with my girlfriend at the time. It was a result of a huge misunderstanding and she didn't really want to harm my future with a domestic violence conviction. I found Matthew through a Google search and ultimately hired him. He was extremely affordable and made me feel comfortable with my case. Matthew laid out my options for how to proceed, gave me his best advice, but ultimately left the decision up to me. He helped to calm my nerves throughout the process and was always available if I needed any advice, had questions, or was just feeling nervous about the case. Matthew was able to get my case dismissed, which was by far the best result that we could have gotten for me. I highly recommend Matthew and Abdo Law for any of your legal needs, especially in the Macomb County courts, as they are well known and do a lot of business on that side of town, but would trust them with my legal matters in any court that they operate in. If you have a criminal matter and need a good defense attorney, I recommend giving Matthew a call. I'm sure you'll be happy with his services and ultimately the results that he can achieve for you.

I retained Matt for a zero tolerance DUI and speeding ticket for my nephew. Throughout the entire process Matt and his law firm assured us they would get the best result. Not only did Matt meet my expectations, he greatly exceeded them. The DUI was reduced to an underage drinking which was dropped off my nephews record after 6 months of non-reporting probation. I can't express how relieved my family and I were for this result. I would hire Matt again in a heartbeat.

Matt is an excellent lawyer. I was involved in a negligent homicide case and my license was revoked for a period of close to five years. I never thought I would drive again. The Abdo Law firm represented to have my privileges fully reinstated. Matt is highly knowledgable about the practice of law and he was aware of any variables that would be involved in the process. I was fully prepared for my hearing and I had already been advised on what steps to complete in the process prior to my court date. Matt prepared me for any questions which might have been asked during the hearing and what I might expect. I imagined that it would be a grueling hearing, but Matt’s eloquence and litigation skills helped express to the courts why I deserved to drive again. His final statement humanized me to the court and I was granted my restoration on the spot. I am very thankful for his assistance and would recommend anyone to seek his services. Thank you Abdo Law!

Over a year ago, I was placed on probation for a DUI. I made some poor choices and ended up violating probation twice on two separate occasions. Upon being charged with the second violation, I immediately contacted my previous attorney, who was quick to tell me that I would end up sitting in jail for a long period of time for my indiscretions. Because I am a full-time student and am also employed part-time, an extended jail sentence would have been extremely detrimental to basically every aspect of my life. My previous lawyer was unwilling to even try for an alternative sentence (house arrest, weekends, extension of probation etc.) This is when I began to seek outside council. After wasting my time consulting with a few other firms, I finally spoke with Matt, who immediately made me feel better about the situation. I told him what my goals were for the hearing and he told me that he thought my expectations were reasonable, but made no lofty promises. We then scheduled a meeting with Cy, who further eased my mind and reinforced the fact that there was a range of possible outcomes for this matter, but that my desired outcome was more than possible. On the day of the hearing, Nick (another Abdo Law attorney) showed up right on time to the court room and talked with me about what we should expect to happen. After much deliberation with my probation officer and the judge, Nick was able to get the judge to offer me two options: drug court supervision for 8 months or 10 weekends in Wayne County jail. I was happy to take the second option, as I could maintain both my work and school schedules. After I left the court, I contacted Matt in response to his request for an update, and notified him of the outcome (which I found to be favorable). Matt, having intended to keep me out of jail altogether, insisted on waiving the remaining balance I owed to the firm (he allowed me to pay the already discounted retainer fee in two payments).
I am extremely grateful to Matt and everyone at Abdo Law for their services. They handled every step of the process in a professional manner, taking care not be judgmental or make any promises they knew they couldn't keep. I walked into the courtroom with an understanding of the range of possible outcomes and walked out with one that I found to be favorable. Their promptness, competence, and willingness to work with me on the fee was more than commendable. I would not hesitate to recommend Abdo Law to anyone seeking a criminal defense attorney.

Matt has helped me several times in the past with my legal troubles. Most recently, he was my attorney following a severe car accident in which I was found to be at fault. As soon as I contacted his office for help, I was put at ease, and that feeling remained through the entirety of my case. His professionalism extends outside of the courtroom as well, as my office visits and phone calls to him left nothing to be desired. Because of his hard work and service, and results, I have recommended him and the Abdo Law Firm to several friends and family members, whose experiences all mirror my own. If you are ever in legal trouble, the only mistake you could make is not hiring Matt. Trust me.

The first time I used Abdo Law to represent me in court was several years ago, and my interactions with their office, as well as the outcome of my case, left me steadfast in my loyalty to the firm and unwavering in my faith in their abilities. It was because of my previous experience with their office that I recently employed their services again, in traffic court this time, with Matt at the helm instead of the patriarch Cy.
To begin, I received a citation in Grosse Pointe for running a red light and driving 15 mph over the speed limit – both of which I was utterly guilty of. Although I knew there was no potential for incarceration, I still opted to inquire with Abdo Law to see if I could mitigate the fines and impending insurance hike. It was completely the right call to make.
During our brief phone consultation, my trust and confidence in Cy and Abdo Law was immediately reaffirmed and extended to Matt as he explained the personal and financial benefits of hiring a lawyer to fight this ticket in court. It wasn’t just what Matt said to me that garnered my business, it was how it was said. Our conversation ended with Matt’s simple reassurance that, “We’ll get this cleaned up for you.”
All of my following communications with Matt after that were straightforward and objective. He never made a promise he couldn’t keep; he was honest in his rate and in the potential outcomes; he treated me professionally and spoke to me familiarly; and he upheld the Abdo family’s reputation as being fair and forthcoming in criminal defense. In short, all of my initial concerns were easily alleviated by his demeanor and disposition.
In the end, I was supremely impressed with the way Matt conducted business and with the outcome of my case – which he got reduced to $175 (the court minimum) and resulted in zero points on my record. Job well done on my defense, Matt, on your tutelage in grooming your son, Cy, and on maintaining my utmost loyalty to the firm, Abdo Law.
