I had an OWI and another charge from 4 years ago. I had since moved out of state and they turned to warrants. It wasn't looking good because I was living in another state and couldn't personally turn myself in. The outcome was better than I ever thought it would be. He got one of my charges dropped and a great outcome with the other. He answers questions quickly and clearly. I would highly recommend him!

Very Professional and polite to work with. I received two Tickets many miles from where I live and work. I am not able to get time off work at this moment and Matthew did everything over the phone. He had one dismissed and the other was reduced to a very reasonable Citation. More than I could have hoped for.

My husband was accused of a felony that he was not guilty of. The involved party, who was someone we've never known, "gave up" his name, which is a very common name, and claimed to have an affair with him, in an effort to save her own husband. The turmoil that my husband and I went through as a result is something we will never forget for the rest of our lives, neither will I forget the night I received the call from the policeman who was driving my husband, the night he got arrested and put in jail, while I waited with my infant daughter for him to come home after visiting family in Canada. The police department did not properly investigate the case or look into evidence that was strongly contradicting the charge. My husband was not even in the country when the crime was committed and he has never been to the place that the crime was committed in, until he had to appear in court. We would still be suffering if Matt hadn't done everything he could to clear my husband of the charge. As soon as we met with him, Matt saw right through the charge and knew my husband was innocent and was determined to keep fighting until we won. After multiple trips to the courthouse, the prosecutor dropped the charges based on lack of evidence - my husband was cleared of the charge and Matt also helped him get my husband's fingerprints and criminal records expunged. Instead of just sitting around and waiting for something to happen, he had written a letter to the sheriff complaining that the investigator was not examining the evidence when it was shown to him and that he was not doing his job. The sheriff took action and the very next time we had to appear in court everything was taken care of.
Matt is very attentive, focused, listens well, and knows how to approach the case in a way that best benefits his client. You can tell he knows what he's doing from his confidence and passion for his work. He called my husband several times to reassure him and to update him about what he was going to do to solidify the evidence and what his approach would be. He never talked my husband down for making any suggestions. Thank you Matt, I will never forget how you tirelessly and compassionately helped my husband and our family by fighting for us.

Several felonies dropped to a single misdemeanor.. also during the original case I hired him for he did a couple other cases Pro bono, With all those cases resulting as a dismissal... 5 star lawyer, I'd recommend him to anyone dealing with the judicial system.... hands down your best choice for your best results!!

He was very understanding and never judge me. Explained everything perfectly. No surprises and said this is the worst thing that could happen and this is what we are going to try. He gave us options and I ended up better than I ever expected.

I had 5 OUIL convictions. Secretary of State told me I'd never drive again. I live out of state. He did an awesome job at a fair price. Don't hesitate to seek his service.

Mr. Norwood is a very respectable attorney who goes to extreme lengths in order to get the best outcome for your case. He is very professional and makes sure your case gets his full effort and commitment. With these traits and him always being on time, returning phone calls promptly, and offering his advice, I would never hire anyone else.

There is not a single person in the world I would trust with my freedom more than Matthew Norwood. Having struggled with alcohol abuse for many years I inevitably landed myself facing prison time for a 3rd DUI with habitual offender ( those who are in my predicament will know what that means ). Mr. Norwood not only made a miracle happen getting me the state minimum jail sentence ( 30 days, of which I served 22 ), but also guided me to better my life. Unlike many attorneys, even the best of the best, their concern is doing a reasonably good job and collecting. Other than that your connection is terminated unless you find yourself in need again. Matt didn't stop for me. He educated me in substance abuse classes, recovery programs, and spoke from his heart encouraging me to put my life together. I am happy to report being sober for over a year, I have my freedom, a fantastic wife, and a great job. All of these things could have vanished into thin air had I not hired Matthew Norwood. I encourage anyone that has their freedom in jepardy to reach out to him.

Matt helped me out with a felony drug possession case in Flint as well as a driving while license suspended charge in Saginaw. The end result was a dismissal of the drug case and a favorable plea with the DWLS that resulted in no added suspension time. Matt was great to work with, answered my first call himself and was very helpful in answering my questions and such. Would recommend to anyone facing a legal predicament in the Flint/Saginaw areas.
