Matthew L. Norwood

About me

Drunk driving and Criminal Defense law is what I live for. I have always found it fascinating and to keep up on it I research it any time possible. When I am not studying the law I enjoy mountain biking and spending time outdoors. I have been blessed in this life and I never forget it.
