We had recently relocated back to Iowa from Colorado and the seller here in Iowa did not want to use real estate agents for the transaction. We agreed and then researched and then hired Mr. Gardner to assist us. He exhibited his professionalism and competence throughout the process. Our real estate purchase transaction and closing went smoothly. Mr. Gardner's fees are very, very reasonable. We would definitely refer others in need of legal assistance to him.

Couldn't have scripted better service than what the Gardner Law Firm provided. Matt was agreeable and responsive at every stage of the process. His guidance in meandering a novice (me) through what I would call my unique legal situation was beyond valuable. My expectations were exceeded and I will certainly plan to use Matt and his firm for future needs. Ultimately, I can't thank Matt enough.
