will really help u the best way he can.
I did not have enough time to look for attorney. But Mark really helped me out by sitting down with me and giving me some really good advise on how to enter a child custody hearing alone. I know he would have helped me out if he was given enough time. I would highly recommend him.

Family Law, Legal Guardian
Mark gave us great representation in our guardianship case. His advice is top-notch, and worked very hard to ensure that we had a positive outcome. He also showed genuine compassion for the children involved, and sheltered them from unnecessary stress. His fees were reasonable and there was no hidden or unexpected charges. I would use Mark again and would recommend him, without hesitation, to family and friends.

Will writing
Mark did an excellent timely will writing job for us. He researched all the possibilities that might could change for us as our portfolio increased. He is accessible and easy to talk with, he doesn't give you a bunch of the lawyer talk. We would use Mark again and have recommended him to other people.

"I have known Mark Matney for years and I've always said that he's one of the very few people I would ever partner with (and now, happily, we have our firm together -- Reece & Matney). He has an incredible work ethic, excellent character, and the highest integrity. He cares about his clients and works hard on their cases to get them the results they need. In addition, he's just a great guy. Smart, resourceful, and compassionate. He's brings his same excellence to the practice of law as he has in all other areas of his life. I highly endorse him."
