Intelligent, personable and supportive
Matthew has advised me on a few matters related to a divorce and co parenting plan matters. He took the time to understand the situations, ask the right questions and was equipped and prepared with answers as they relate to the law. He is very warm and personable and approaches things with no judgement or preconceived notions which allowed me to be comfortable and supported during some difficult times.

He puts himself in your corner of legal boxing ring!
Matthew Mckeon is professional in all aspects of representing you as your lawyer. I had a criminal issue in which I was facing some decent jail time that would have severely effected my way of life and made things much more difficult for myself. Matthew reviewed my case, met with me and gave it to me straight in what his expectations were for my specific case. This was exactly what I needed. A lawyer willing to give it to me straight and not sugar coat anything giving me false hope only to be let down. When things were all said and done Matthew took what I had told him in regards to my fears about the case, used his knowledge about who I was as a person, as he took time to get to know me, and was able to get a plea deal that was more then fair. The stress and weight on my shoulders I was feeling was lifted and I was able to take care of my business as well as keep my way of life on track. I would recommend Matthew Mckeon to anyone looking for a solid outstanding lawyer who's willing to fight for you with honesty and integrity.

Matt McKeon Where Excellance Meets Integrity
Mr. McKeon came to my attention while I was in search of getting some contracts drawn up for a new global business adventure I was embarking on. Mr. McKeon met me needs not only in a timely manner but his knowledge base and ability to pay attention to detail was impeccable. Mr. McKeon has secured a permanent spot when it comes to facilitating all my future legal needs.

Thinks that not orally arguing your rights in status hearings is ok. Allows other parties to demoralize his clients. Will abandon your case for higher profile cases. Thinks that he does good work when i still have rights to my children but can never see them. Never once asserted the children have no right to choose where the live. Allowed my abusive ex husband to get the kids back after they were initially taken from him. Never once argued that the children could have been being manipulated due to his unsupervised contact with them. I don't care if it was a closed case this lawyer doesn't deserve to practice law.

Took on my case and promissed me that he would get my daughter back from my abusive exhusband. promissed me if things went wrong he would appeal it. Allowed a judge to laugh at me, Allowed other attorneys to slander my name. When we asked him to appeal the case... he responded with Dont have time and you need to accept the District Court Ruling. I was never accused of any abuse and was quoted as a "weak" parent I dont abuse drugs and have 3 children in my custody but this lawyer thinks its ok to "Maintain your rights to your child but never be able to see hold or visit them when you have done nothing wrong to deserve it" and appealing this ruling to a higher court would be "practically not in your best interest"
