About Matthew

Learn Matthew’s areas of practice.

I focus exclusively on defending people accused of crimes. Representing real people facing consequences requiring the very best advice, judgment, and skill is deeply satisfying. I have devoted my career to protecting people from a harsh and broken criminal justice system. I have invested exceptional amounts of time, money, and effort into honing my trial skills, and I try several cases every year before am a known threat in the courtroom, and I leverage that fact in every phase of a case, from plea bargaining to pre-trial practice. 

I wanted to be a trial lawyer in high school and spent my academic career focusing on that goal. I was an exceptionally good law student, opening the door to a first job with a large and prestigious law firm in Dallas. I had a skyscraper office, my own secretary, every legal resource at my disposal, and a staggeringly good salary. But the work was all business-related civil lawsuits on behalf of the largest and most powerful companies and people in the world. I hated it. I lasted about a year. I started my own practice and won my first criminal jury trial the next year.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my wife and adult children, flying small airplanes, and traveling to new places.

My amily's Lawyer
Mathew Maddox has been my lawyer for the past 2+ years and every time I have an issue or a question he is always willing to help, regardless if it is about my specific case or not. Accompanied by Angie Kraft, she is without a doubt the biggest blessing that God has put in to my life through this point of time. I cannot express how much these two people have changed my life in such a short amount of time. I highly recommend Matt Maddox Law Firm to anyone in need of a genuine lawyer with a supportive team.

Matt, is very compassionate, understanding, knowledge lawyer, who cared a lot about my divorce case. Matt and his team made a very difficult time, more bearable and less stressful. His paralegal Angie, is amazing and extremely sympathetic and was always there to answer questions. I would highly recommend this team for any divorce. You will not be sorry

Thr best part of a bad experience
Matthew Maddox was by far the best laywer i could have had in what id label as a terrible experience. He changed what i thought was a hopeless case into a blow out win! Matthew was always willing to meet and help guide me through my case aswell as communicated clearly and promptly. 10 out of 10 would call again in a heartbeat!

Not All Lawyers Are EVIL
Over they past 5 years I have had an ongoing, drama filled divorce with children. I am in the military and it has exasperated the situation. Finding the right lawyer for the job proved to be harder then expected. If I only found Matthew Maddox from the start, I truly believe that my stress of the situation would be lower. He worked with me at every level and gave me the straight answer with every questions I had. He went out of his way to assist me with a payment plan and ensured that my well being was looked after in the realm of Law. Thanks Matt for all of your help.

Superb Lawyer!
Mr. Maddox helped me so much. I was terrified of the situation I was in, but he explained everything to me and made me feel so much better. He actually took an interest in me AND RETURNED MY CALLS AND EMAILS.
