Life saver
I was arrested last year for delivery/manufacturing marijuana. I've gotten in a little trouble a few times in the past, but by no means would I consider myself a criminal...and this was biggest trouble (and first felony) I had ever gotten into. At the time of my arrest I had recently, finally acquired a good job with one of the major car manufacturing companies. I knew that going to jail would cost me my job and take away my ability to support myself and my child in a secure and comfortable manner. When I finally went to my first court date and met Matt, he immediately made me feel comfortable by letting me know exactly what was going to happen that day and that it wasn't anything to worry about. I had a number of court dates over the next few months most of which were just formalities. Not only was Matt very knowledgeable about the legal process and explaining everything that was going on so that I could understand, but (and maybe more importantly) he also made me feel at ease by talking to me about normal life situations and topics. It was a very lonely feeling when I got in trouble, bc aside from worrying about the outcome and what my future would look like had things gone bad, I had to distance myself from my whole life style and most of my friends bc a lot of them were involved in the very thing I got in trouble for. Although most were doing it on a legal medical level, I didn't want any more trouble coming my way or theirs. Matt made himself available to me day or night with phone calls or texting whether it was a question about my case or just to chat about life or whatever. He showed true care and concern about the outcome of my case and was a friend when I needed one. And not just because he wanted a victory on his record, but because he took the time to get to know me, and my family, and my life situation, and really cared about what happened to me...and I truly believe that. I've had other attornies in the past for other instances of trouble I've gotten in. Some were hired privately, and some were public defenders, but none were there for me both professionally and on a personal level the way Matt was. I was convicted of the crime I was charged with, but I planned on plead,u guilty from day 1 anyway...but my case was truly a victory in the sense that on a 4 year maximum sentence I didn't have to go to jail for even 1 day. I would recommend Matt to anyone who was in need of an attorney, and I would definitely consider him a friend and someone I'm glad I met. The bright spot in a super stressful situation over this last year. I truly feel like he save my life. Thanks Matt, George.

From day one Matt has helped me get thru a bunch of legal issues with the upmost respect and class. His knowledge of the law and how it works is amazing. Matt has walked me through this process with an understanding that this is a horrible time in my life, he is an attorney that makes you feel very comfortable and is willing to stand by you to the end. On top of that I have gotten to know Matt very well through this process and above being a great lawyer he is a great and honest man. I would recommend Matt to my closest family members and to complete strangers he is very good at what he does!

Critical Review of Attorney Matthew Roman
My partners and I first met in December of last year. Our DD told us that his background and skills, would be good match for our start up business needs. Mr Roman has proven our initial assumptions to be correct in that his combination of business and legal accumen have been invaluable in the early development of our Operation. On a personal level he is prompt, thouroughly, respectful and engaging. I have worked with a number of corporate attorneys over the years. I consider Matt Roman to be among the best of those I've been associated with.

Excellent Results
If you're seeking a savvy, knowledgeable attorney who will work hard in your interest, Matthew Roman is your man. Extremely professional, well-organized, communicative and responsive. He didn't over-promise, but he sure delivered, successfully negotiating a misdemeanor arrest down to a civil infraction. We highly recommend Matthew to anyone needing strong legal representation.

Matt was there for me. Matt kept in contact with me, and he was never too busy to not get back to me when I had questions. Matt Was always on time to my court appointments, and gave 100% of his attention to my case. His knowledge of the Law was very impressive.
