Represented Me in an EEOC Case
Matthew Clark represented me in an EEOC case for wrongful termination. Up until I hired him everyone I spoke to was dismissive and downplayed the seriousness of my complaint and evidence. The case was successfully settled earlier this year and I cannot imagine that would have been possible if I had tried to represent myself. In addition, it was just a relief to know what exactly happened. I doubt I would have ever gotten the full story had he not agreed to represent me. The cost for his work was also a plus, I did not have to pay anything until the case was complete and he took a percentage of the settlement rather than billing me directly. I also appreciated being kept up to date and included in the details as much as was possible. I never felt pressured or rushed about decisions.

You just found your next attorney!
A little background--I was distraught after being illegally terminated from my job after filing a sexual harassment complaint with very little recourse on what to do--I then had the good fortune of connecting with Mr. Clark at the time after having hired an attorney that wasn't receptive to my needs nor communicative about my case (whom I summarily dropped to hire Mr. Clark). The latter was not only incredibly receptive, but also made me feel prioritized and heard while spending countless hours on my case and never making me feel like I was settling for less than what I deserved. He represented me incredibly well throughout this entire ordeal and it was really only thanks to him that my case received the attention and result it deserved. Words genuinely can't do justice for the gratitude I feel toward his labor. I highly recommend hiring this attorney!

Amazing work and always made time
Matt was recommended to me thru a family friend and I couldn’t be happier! He stuck by me for over 2 years and we won my case. He was always easy to talk to and always responded back to me when I had questions. He walked me thru every step of this suit, so I knew what was going on. Amazing job and I highly recommend Matt! Thanks again Matt!

MATT CLARK REVIEW
I'm writing to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for the outstanding representation that I received from Matthew J. Clark. I was 100% satisfied with the job Matthew did representing me and how well prepared he was. He asked all relevant questions and hit on all major points. I want to once again, express my gratitude for his help. Also, to inform you of the exemplary job he did. I would love for him to be the first choice for future representation needs of our Local 3 union members. Thanks and have a great day. Sincerely Darryl Hill President SPFPA Local 3

A lifesavor
Matthew was very helpful for my son, Ryan who has been in pain associated with severe disability for many years. In navigating through this process of disability, Matthew has been instrumental and helpful in gaining the appropriate information and representing Ryan through the administrative judge meeting with a positive and successful outcome. i would not hesitate to recommend Matthew to any of my colleagues or friends who are going through disability complications. Thank you again, Matthew you have helped our family and Ryan in so many ways. Thank you!

Honest, hardworking, excellent at his profession!!!
My family loss our mother in 2014. She done a reverse mortgage on her home and it was sold without our knowledge. After two attorneys and no justice we found Matthew Clark. Matthew is an excellent, hardworking, dedicated attorney. He's not just an attorney, but he establish a relationship with his clients. He's up front so there's no reason for guessing. He's heaven sent!!! He helped us keep a family home. I will recommend Matthew to others without hesitation. Just an all around professional, honest, hardworking attorney!!!!!

Great attorney!
Matt worked hard for my case. I had no idea I would ever win or get a settlement. With his persistence and vast knowledge he won what I think I deserved. Very happy client. Definitely recommended....

Amazing attorney, even better human being!
I am currently going through an eviction process with my landlord (extremely complex case) I have been all over Google and other search engines, making phone calls to "trustworthy" attorneys to seek helpful advice. Matthew was the only attorney in the Detroit area I found (after making over 14 phone calls) that was willing to give his time away for free (we spent over 30 minutes on the phone) He was honest, caring, and genuinely made me feel better about this entire situation. I now know what I need to do in court, and I know that I can call on Matt if I need to hire additional help. I would highly recommend calling Matthew, you won't be disappointed.

Outstanding attorney Matthew J. Clark
Matthew J. Clark is an honorable, intellectual, trustworthy, and compassionate attorney and counselor at law, with a moral compass that is always pointed in the right direction. He discovered pertinent mistakes made by the plaintiff that other lawyers missed entirely, which resulted in a case dismissal. It is my pleasure to give Mr. Clark an outstanding rating and recommend him very highly.

Good attitude and excellent legal knowledge
I just started working with Matt, but he made me feel comfortable discussing sensitive material. He is professional and genuinely cares about his clients concerns and fears.

I would recommend him to anyone!
I was referred to Mr. Clark by the Oakland County Bar Association. Mr. Clark did a phenomenal job all the way around! He was very professional and easy to talk to. I could not believe he got my money back so quickly! I would recommend him to anyone.
