Matt is a good part of the Kraayeveld law team. Matt did a good job of working on my QRDO along with keeping me informed.

I could not have been happier with my experience with Matt. Divorce is a very challenging thing and Matt made it manageable. He kept me updated at every step and advocated for me more than I would have ever imagined. When he did not receive copies of my friend of the court agreement, he went to the court in Grand Haven to pick up copies himself. He was always available for any questions I had and he always made sure I was informed and comfortable with whatever decisions we made. My ex-husband was very difficult to work with and Matt handled it with grace. He made me feel like I was a person and that he really cared for his clients. He would always ask me about how my children were doing or how grad school was going. It made me feel like I was more than just his next divorce case. Matt was also very honest, he was very straight forward when there were things I could do myself that could help save money. I would highly recommended him!

Matt made sure to keep me updated throughout the entire divorce. He was well organized and very knowledgable able a lot of general knowledge areas. He stayed focused and made sure to things done and accomplished as I asked. He always had a great thought process to every scenario. Very caring and hard working. Great listener.

I had the opportunity to start my law career working with Mr. Burns at a small, family law firm. Working with Mr. Burns, I was able to witness his hard work ethic, knowledge of the law, and more importantly, his compassion displayed while advocating for his clients. I never think twice about referring clients his way.
