4.5 stars 32 totalReview Joshua Mathews

If you have but one choice for a divorce lawyer, it should be Josh Mathews and his team! I got slapped with divorce papers before I could turn around and catch my breath. I was hurt, anger, devastated but at 61, I wasn’t going to let this event define me. I search the internet, read the reviews, and looked at the results versus the hype. I picked Josh because the lion’s share of the reviews said he went the extra mile. I needed an advocate for my side. It wasn’t always easy Josh gives tough love. His frankness can seem harsh, but he explains why and goes into detail about the range of outcomes. His staff is exceptional. Particularly outstanding was Amber’s genuine concern, caring and commitment. She let me vent in daily emails, she called me on weekends if need be. Amber showed she cared. It was not some hyperbole of a slick ad like you see in another firm. It was honest, decent and although I didn’t always hear what I wanted, I heard what I needed. Josh has the money side of this mess, down to a science. I knew exactly what worse case, best case was and where I most likely would end up. In the end as one reads this, it is about results. Josh pulverized opposing counsel. He was prepared, organized and stayed on point. He clearly won the day. While the emotional toll isn’t something lawyers can help with, knowing I won’t continue to pay for something I didn’t really want (a divorce), I can go into another relationship with peace of mind. Kudos and many thanks to Josh and his team

Mr Mathews did a great job at trial. he was up against a lawyer that likes to use false evidence. Mr Mathews was fast at getting the true facts out to the court. i am very happy on the job he and his staff have done.

Wow, sitting here reading the reviews and I feel like I'm looking through a crystal ball. Much like all of the other one star reviews, Joshua dropped the ball in my case after I paid the "flat rate" fee for my divorce. I'm pretty sure he or his staff are writing the glowing reviews. DO NOT trust this man with something as important as your FAMILY! I wish I would've listened to my instincts but I was desperate in my divorce and this man takes advantage of people who are vulnerable! He gives you great attention in your free consultation but as soon as you sign, your stuck with his high turnover paralegals who aren't qualified to advise you. He rarely returns your phone calls or responds to emails but when you finally do get him on the phone he lets you know how irritated he is with you and all of your questions. And then justifies his "flat fee" by the work his unqualified paras do! Which is pretty much secretarial work! He dropped the ball. He sat on my case for so long that I my ex was able to use it to their advantage and won custody of my child! He is worthless. Please spare yourself the heartache and go with ANYONE else.

Joshua is literally the worst thing that ever happened to me and my family.
Joshua was good at getting me to sign and pay the flat fee upfront.
He then simply dropped the ball.
He did not do research or prep for the conferences or trial hearing.
He did not present evidence I had given him to the court. I got sanctioned and lost custody of child because of him. Was unemployed and ended with a child support bill bigger than my mortgage because he didn't submit my finances, didn't even submit child support form, didn't submit parenting plan, nothing. He just wanted to get out of the court.
I am now paying for 16 years for my mistake of hiring this guy in lost time with child and child support and alimony.
One of his attorneys actually left him due to his unethical behavior. He was showing up to court with one hour prep for custody hearings. That explains why he can do the flat fee.
Maybe if you have uncontested divorce, but Do NOT use him for anything that requires true attorney work.

If you are looking for an attorney in the Kansas/Missouri area, I highly recommend Joshua A Matthews. I hired him for my child custody case. He was the BEST lawyer I have ever worked with. He was extremely detailed and aggressive. If you are someone who is honest and truthful with him, he will get you what you want and deserve. He did an outstanding job presenting the evidence I had and he is an excellent cross examiner. The end result, thanks to Josh, the judge ruled in my favor! I am forever grateful for him and his Team at The Matthews Group!

Today ended a year of motions sent by my ex husband and his attorney. I came out winning every single thing that was important to me. I had to hug this man multiple times today for seeing me through two trials, a pre trial, and a lengthy deposition. I had no legal experience and knew so little about the law going into all of these proceedings, but Joshua is so intelligent, so skilled, and so capable of thinking and reacting effectively that I didn't need to worry. I lost sleep for nothing. He had it all under control today.

The free consultation is not with a lawyer. The lady who did my consultation was extremely unprofessional, using many curse words throughout the appointment as well as making assumptions when she did not even know the situation. I definitely would have rather met with an attorney who actually knew what they were talking about especially with such a sensitive topic.

I hired Josh Mathews to handle our very emotional divorce. I was in a terrible financial situation and our case went longer than expected. Even though I had used up the time I had paid for, Josh had compassion on me and stuck with me til the end. He answered my questions, explained things I didn’t understand, even emailing after hours. His paralegal, Michelle, is the best. Always friendly, dependable and efficient. She always made me feel so welcome. Lawyers don’t always say what you want to hear, but he was honest and upfront with me about my situation so I would know what to expect. I would recommend Josh Mathews to anyone in need of a divorce lawyer.

Let me start by saying that I was very concerned about today's hearing. I have been an extremely patient person while going through this process with my husband the last couple of months. On numerous occasions my husband has done things to try to make me look like a bad parent or to embarrass me in the court, not to mention his attempts at getting reduced child support. Joshua was on his A game today and without hesitation shut down every unrealistic expectation my husband has had regarding parenting time, child support and our children. For the first time in months I actually feel some of the stress leaving my body and I feel good about moving forward with my divorce case. Joshua was the second attorney I had to hire after dealing with one who I could never get ahold of and who really could care less what happened to me and my children. Joshua Mathews is officially our family hero. We still have a way to go with this divorce case but I think I will be sleeping a little better at night now knowing I've got an attorney like this on my children's side. Thank you Mr Matthews!

I liked that the fee was a one-time fee. I knew the exact price and the exact length of representation up front instead of being billed for ridiculous hourly rates. I received a lot of prompt email responses from both Michelle and Devon, and Courtney was very knowledgeable and was available to speak on the phone if I had questions about my case. The turnaround on the initial paperwork was quick and although Josh wasn't immediately available by phone, I always got an email back within a day or so, and could schedule calls with him in advance. He treats you like a real person, not just a client. He knows exactly what to say in court and made my ex look unprepared. You won't be disappointed!
