The best - look no further.
As a Realtor/Investor, I paid for a marketing company $9,000 to provide leads. They promised daily leads, CRM and "guaranteed" results in 30-days or less. 43-days in, I had 3 leads and they wouldn't refund me, begging me for more time. My credit card company said the contract I signed (shame on me for not reading it AND having an attorney review it), never once mentioned the vendor owed me any leads at all, so they cannot contest my claim. My real estate attorney here (Ohio) said I was likely out of $9,000 I paid. My brother, also an attorney, said I was likely out the money. My cousin, also an attorney, said to reach out to an attorney in the state the vendor is located in, Texas, and I got LUCKY to connect with Matt. Matt explained I had a case, there was evidence of consumer fraud, and one demand letter + 3 weeks of time, I was fully reimbursed by the vendor! Matt is easy to work with, clean, efficient and a professional. I give him my highest praises.

Excellent
Matt Chappell is a really good lawyer he helped us in a situation that took us 2 years trying to solve and took him 2 months to help us out solving it. I would highly recommend him.

10/10 - Would Hire Again!
Even though several other attorneys wouldn’t bother to help us, Matt Chappell handled our case in a very professional and polite manner. He focused in on the important issues and has good attention to detail. Matt really knows what he is doing. He utilized proper resources by bringing in several expert witnesses. Even though the “contractor” was bucking us every step of the way, Matt won us a $35,000 judgement due to poor contractor workmanship.

Exceptional
I was at a loss with the issue I was having dealing with the negligence from my warranty company. Upon hiring Mr. Chappell, he went to work and almost immediately got a response from the warranty company. Unfortunately, after their first response they went quiet. Regardless, Mr. Chappell worked tirelessly and ultimately won me my case. Great attorney, does really well with communication. No complaints whatsoever.

Excellent Service & Results
Mac was recommended to me by a friend and I will always be grateful to her for it! Mac is very responsive, promptly responds to emails, returns phone calls even on Sunday, communicates every step of the process, and explains it in a way that’s easily understood. He was also able to get me 4x damages, which I didn’t think was possible. I would absolutely use him again!

Simplest transaction ever
Received a lowball offer from a major corporation for a defective product that damaged my vehicle. Called Matthew talked for 15 minutes. He sent me some forms and I paid his fee. Two weeks later I get a full compensation offer including attorneys fees. Piece of cake.

Exceptional Experience with Positive Results
Matthew listened to my case and got me the result I desired. I was told it would take 2 years to get a resolution. It took less than 6 weeks. I was very pleased with his attention to detail and his knowledge on how to present the case. I will definitely refer him to friends and family.

Fantastic Result! would give 1000 stars if I could!
I had storm damage to my dad's house and his insurance sent a crew of folks to see the situation then I got a letter saying that he was not covered. Insurance said it came through the roof and that it was cosmetic. They did not reply on the contents damage. I got hold of a construction company that did roofing and they recommended a law firm that deals with this sort of claim pro bono. They take 40% of all proceeds. I hired them and they sat on it for almost 2 years and stated that I could forget the contents damage( by law they don't get a percentage of that). I kept pushing that and they dropped me. Meantime the contractor said that this firm takes more than 40% and that he would not be able to fix the roof with what ever I would get. In panic and despair I started interviewing lawyers by phone prepared to pay out of my pocket for representation. I called many Houston Lawyers but Mathew Chappell stood out. He said it was basically breach of contract by the insurance company, He was calm, knowledgeable and said I did have a claim but it needed to be dealt with immediately. The insurance company played games in not accepting service. Mathew preserved. Mathew went beyond what any other attorney would do. When I couldn't fill out the complicated computer program form the insurance company demanded be filled out after days of trying and due that Monday I was in tears. Mathew filled it out on my behalf over the weekend. He came to the house TWICE to review the damage to understand the problem. He found expert witnesses and we hired an engineering firm then a brick specialist.to find out if in fact it was actually the roof. IT WAS NOT THE ROOF THAT CAUSED THE DAMAGE!!! 18 months of hashing out the roof with the incompetent firm I previously hired and the rouge insurance company who said it was the roof! We went to mediation twice and Mathew held firm. By this time I had total faith in Mathew if we had to go to court. Mathew Chappell knows his stuff. He knew my insurance policy better than the insurance company! The first set of lawyers said I could expect around $10k ( they take 40% of that) but that it would "put money in my pocket". MATHEW GOT ME A 6 FIGURE SUM! It worked out that over the year that he represented me I had only paid him 15% of my payout. WOW what a result ! I still can't believe that I went from frustration and despair to finding Mathew Chappell who more than exceeded my expectations. He was a pleasure to work with and even worked on weekends. He really had my back. MATHEW CHAPPELL 1000 stars!
