I engaged attorney Matthew Schaap, of Dougherty Molenda to handle both a business & personal civil matter for myself as plaintiff. We followed the matter through to a successful conclusion, with full recovery. Matt was great to work with, through his pleasant personality, his thorough understanding of the law, and his excellent negotiation skills in bringing the matter to conclusion. Matt was highly proactive in keeping me informed timely, always presented me options, and I always had access to him. I'd highly recommend Matt to anyone seeking counsel, and I will be utilizing Matt again, without question.

Matt Schaap did an excellent job handling our defense in a recent lawsuit. He was professional and responded quickly to questions we posed as a litigation team for our non-profit.
Matt demonstrated the ability to explain complex legal issues and developed a strategy that quickly brought a conclusion to our litigation issue within 6 months. I would utilize Matt's legal expertise in the future and recommend his law firm.

I never anticipated needing legal advice for a lawsuit, until I sold my company and was sued by my former partner. I have done business with the law firm of Dougherty, Molenda, Solfest, Hills and Bauer for many years. They have always done an excellent job, so it only made sense to have their expert litigation team represent me. My first impression of Matt Schaap told me that he was the attorney I needed. His professionalism, attention to detail, follow up and knowledge are second to none. He took the time to answer all my questions. He thoroughly explained the process and all the options. Matt and his team did such a fantastic job that the case settled before trial and for less than I expected. I highly recommend Matt and the rest of the DMSHB team.
