    I hired the Abdo's to get my drivers license back for a DUI. Matthew was at the hearing. He prepped me, then asked me all the questions. The whole process was smooth and pain free. I was approved for my license the same day. Thank you!

    I can't thank these guys enough. I was looking at a felony charge for non-payment of child support. I am also a CPL holder, and would've lost my license to carry if not for their help. Matt and Cy worked diligently to get my charges dropped completely on our first day in court. This is our second time using the Abdo law firm, and I'll certainly retain them again, and will always recommend them to others in need.

  • Retail Fraud 3rd Degree

    Anonymous review posted on

    I got in some trouble, and was charged with 3rd degree Retail Fraud. I was freaking out, and knew i would need a lawyer to represent me because I already had a theft case on my record in another state that was on my record. I googled lawyers and Cy & Matthew came up. I called Cy, he was very understanding and made an appointment to meet with me the following day. When I got to the office Cy was courteous, made me feel beyond comfortable, went over my case details with me and was very honest and upfront with me about everything. He fee was reasonable and he even gave me a payment plan because I did not have all the money up front. He kept me up to date on the date of my case. The day of my hearing Matthew showed up on time, I was somewhat nervous and did not know what to expect but Matt stayed by my side the whole time, explained everything to me, spoke with a prosecutor and got a me an awesome deal. I was somewat worried because I had a prior so Matt told me the Judge may not accept my plea, Matt made sure I was comfortable the entire time. Matt was able to persuade the prosecutor to give me delayed sentencing where I got 6 months probation, non-reporting and after 6 months this will be OFF MY RECORD. Matt and Cy are awesome. I am going to recommend them to EVERYONE I know. On top of that, after my case was over, the next day Matt checked on me, I had a 100 balance left and Matt waived my balance and told me my balance was at ZERO. He is awesome.

    I had a OWI in 2004 and lost my license for the last 12 years, I didn't think I would ever drive again but Matthew assured me he would do everything he could to help me win my DLAD hearing and he did just that by explaining all the details of my case and returning all my calls when I had questions he treated me more like a concerned friend than a hired attorney and thanks to him I won my case and am now driving again I am very greatful for the help he gave me and will definitely call matthew again for my next hearing

    Matthew S. Abdo’s response: “Matt was such a dedicated client. Without a license he would ride his bike over 10 miles to get to the office. He was eager to take my advice, followed it exactly, and now he has his license back. Matt definitely became a friend over the course of our representation, I drove him to his hearing. This was definitely a situation where we worked as a team to get a best case result. I was so happy when Matt texted me that because of our efforts that for the first time in years he was able to go buy a car. Thank you for the thoughtful feedback and the privilege of representing you!”

    Matthew has represented me twice. Both times his services were excellent. His "no b.s " approach to my case was refreshing. And his knowledge of legal system are unsurpassed.. Hopefully I won't need his services again.... I highly recommend him

    Matthew S. Abdo’s response: “NOBODY wants to hire a criminal defense attorney and our Firm is very sensitive to that. Making sure people walk away feeling dignified and satisfied in our services is always our goal. This client made a complete 180 from when I first met him and is someone who's life progress is now skewing positively. As always, I appreciate the gracious feedback and opportunity I had to help this person put a difficult situation behind them.”

    Hired Mr. Abdo on two cases of violating probation, both times we were please with the outcome. He listens to what you have to say and he gets results you had hoped for.

    Matthew Abdo is a one in a million attorney. He goes above and beyond to fight for his clients. I hired Matt for help with a DUI and possession of marijuana criminal charge. Matt got my charge reduced to an OWI and my possession of marijuana charge will be off my record on completion of my probation. I hired Matt a second time for a probation violation. My violation was for using marijuana, and for having diluted urine tests. Matt helped the judge to see that the reason for my marijuana usage was for debilitating medical conditions and how critical it was that I would be granted usage of my medical marijuana while on probation. The judge did grant this request and I could not be happier with the results. Also, the diluted tests were not counted against me. If anyone is looking for an attorney would knows their stuff and who's heart is truly in what they do, then Matt Abdo is your guy!

    Matthew S. Abdo’s response: “Perhaps one of the most frustrating issues with medical marijuana law in Michigan is that it allows courts to deny use while on probation. I can tell you that my client Melanie suffered tremendously. She had multiple afflictions that totally robbed her of all quality of life. Nonetheless, we were facing a PV where a lot of jail was on the table. However, we not only convinced the court to hold jail in abeyance, but to allow Melanie to medicate with marijuana. This was a big win for a client who badly needed one. Thank you for the feedback Melanie.”

    Matt has represented me on two felony retail fraud charges and was able to get both charges down to misdemeanors. The first time I was put on 1 year reporting probation, 4 WWAM community service days and an economic crime class. The second time Matt demanded an even more faborable outcome with me only having to pay a $400 fee. I do have to go back in front of the judge that put me on probation as the second offense was an obvious violation of my terms of probation. Although I am very worried of the potential outcome of this, I am certain I can rest assured that I am being represented by the very best. Going into court with almost no hope and coming out with such a favorable outcome on both occasions was more than I could ever expect from a lawyer. Matt is very straightforward, honest, understanding and respectful. I, of course, do not plan on needing anymore lawyer services, but if ever deemed necessary I will, without a single hesitation, be calling the Abdo Law Firm! I have already raved to many about how truly awesome of a lawyer Matthew is and I would VERY highly recommend Matthew to any body in need of a fair and most favorable result in court!

    Matthew S. Abdo’s response: “Nicole is a great lady who took the time to explain a lot of her background to me. She followed all of my advice and had fantastic family support. I represented her on two felonies, one in Oakland and one in Macomb. I was able to persuade both prosecutors to give her a misdemeanor reduction. Moreover, in Macomb she wasn't even put on probation (just fines and costs). Nicole impressed me in the regard that she is working through her issues and making a lot of progress. I am hopeful going into the next hearing and will do all I can to best represent her interests. Thank you for the feedback Nicole.”

    I hired Cy and Matthew Abdo for a larceny in a building felony charge. They were able to have it reduced to a misdemeanor. Both were always available whenever I had a question or needed reassurance. I hope I don't need a lawyer again but if I do, I will definitely call the Abdo's.

    Matthew S. Abdo’s response: “In some instances keeping a felony down in the district courts with the misdemeanor reduction is vital. This client was given very practical advice, presented well in the court room, and with our assistance got a manageable result. Availability is mentioned, though we can't get to every phone call we try our hardest to provide all clients with our personal information so they can text or call 24/7 if they need legal questions answered or anxieties quelled. Thank you for the kind input!”
