DWLS 2nd offense to Lesser charge of No OPS
Mr. Matthew Benedict represented me for driving with suspended license. He was with me from the start to finish. Mr. Benedict helped me get my license back with no points or charges. He was able to reduce my charge to a no operator's license on hand. He went above and beyond to assist me and gather information I probably would never do. I am very happy that I found him online through some web searches. His website and bio is what caught my attention. Very thorough and upfront - no hidden fees and affordable. I would choose him again, to represent me even if the situation was outside his practice :)

Seamless New Business Set Up
I reached out to Matt a few months ago requesting assistance forming an LLC. Admittedly, I am a fast talker and tend to jump around topic wise, especially when under stress. Also, I have worked in positions where my responsibilities commonly overlapped/required the assistance of attorneys and have not always had the best experiences. Matt took all this in stride. He was able to ease my nerves and went above and beyond to help me. What I was most impressed with was his responses to my questions. Based off previous experience, I expected a short response; however, Matt would first answer my question, then he would explain to me the reasoning behind his answer and potential outcomes if I choose to go another route. He did so in a manner that I could easily understand and any additional questions which resulted, were met with the same thorough and kind response. Furthermore, these answers were then typed up into word documents so that I may easily reference them later. Matt, again surprised me when he went out of his way to provided me with non-legal assistance related to starting up a business, including recommending a YouTube channel showing how to design my website. This was not done during any charged time but rather, just because he wanted to help. This type of service is hard to find and is so important when going through stressful circumstances. I whole heartily recommend Matt to anyone requiring legal assistance.
