Fantastic! Highly recommended!!
In a difficult, confusing, or complicated situation, individuals may find themselves desperately seeking the guidance of a well-prepared and reliable attorney. I thank God my daughter and I found Matt Tyson. Matt made the process so much easier and gave us peace of mind in a stressful but successful outcome. He help my daughter understand the process and gave her his personal phone number in case that she had a question about her case. The members of his law firm are excellent, professional and very client service focused. I can tell you based in our experience with Mr. Tyson that he have excellent knowledge of the law and good judgment to fight for you. He provided to my daughter sound, clear and practical legal advise. He is very straight forward and told us what to expect each step of the way. My daughter used Mr. Tyson for custody, he is a wonderful attorney I could not have been happier, he did a great job. Thank you very much Matt! Sincerely, Wanda Muniz/ Grace Marie Cautino Muniz

AMAZING!!!!
Hands down one of the best decisions I ever made was hiring Matt as my attorney!!! My case was not the “normal” divorce.... I had all the typical stuff like a child, home, cars and 401ks but in a same sex marriage. When I went in for my consult I knew in the first 2 mins I was going to hire Matt. I didn’t want someone to sugar coat things for me or make false promises just so I would spend lots of money and be on an emotional roller coaster the whole time. Matt was kind but very direct and to the point. He won’t promise you anything he can’t actually follow through on. I had TONS of questions and never once did he make me feel like I was an inconvenience or stupid for asking them! He handled all my craziness like a champ! Matt if your reading this THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for everything! I am so incredibly blessed that you had my back !

Terrific Attorney
Matt is an honest and personable Attorney. I approached him after trying few attorneys with good reviews on Avvo.com. He instantly picked up my call while he was driving home from work. He apparently pulled over and listened to my frantic call very patiently, explaining his services and costs very clearly and urging me to come in for a free consultation. Upon meeting him in person and conversing with him for an hour, I instantly made up my mind and signed him up. His para-legal Ms. Brittany is an equally great, patient and diligent person and assisted Matt with my case very professionally. Matt was by my side all through my divorce offering me valuable advise and eventually helped me come out with positive outcomes. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a compassionate, upbeat, honest and an extremely communicative attorney. Thanks Matt!

Best decision I made
I do not know if I even have the words to explain the blessing Mr. Tyson, and his staff were in regards to my custody case. After hearing that my ex wanted to fight for full custody of our son, I was frightened. I spoke and met with a few attorneys before I met with Matt. I immediately knew during our consultation that he had to represent me. He is just all around a genuine person, and good soul. Persistence and professionalism are just the bare minimum in describing the quality of representation Mr. Tyson offers. He took his time in answering all of my questions, and concerns (believe me, I had plenty). Needless to say, at the end of the day we were able to win my case, and he brought my dream of being a full-time mother into fruition. My son & I are forever grateful for Matt and his team.

Profession, Intelligent, aggressive
I was introduced to lawyer Matt Tyson 2 years ago by a mutual friend. Once he heard about my divorce he immediately jumped on it. As this was my first divorce, I didn't know what to expect however Matt explained every bit of detail in its entirety. I understood all legal lingo and was updated on my case day by day. I have never seen any that aggressive but yet so professional and smart when it comes to taking care of clients. I was for sure my divorce was going to swallow me up, but thanks to Matt Tyson and his kick-ass legal team, we came out on top! Very affordable, very professional, and just an all around stand up guy. If you have any problems whether its divorce or criminal, this is your guy. Thank you so much Matt for being a great attorney and a even greater friend.

Honest Guy
I've spoken to countless lawyers over the past week, and a large portion of them got my hopes up only to hit me with insane fees. I called Matt, and he personally answered. He explained right away what his costs were, and I appreciated that. His rates are better than most others. Definitely recommend giving him a call. The experience is peacefully different, which is much needed during the time a person needs a lawyer.

Great Lawyer
Getting a divorce is an incredibly stressful and emotional experience, and having Matt represent me was a good decision. He is honest and does everything he can to explain the process and to save his client money. He is a great lawyer and I highly recommend him!

In a word, dedicated.
Words cannot express the gratitude I have. From the free in office consultation to our closing appointment, Matthew provided professional legal council with patience, commitment, and an understanding I was not expecting. He answered every phone call and email. He answered every question and concern. His efforts produced better results than imagined. My search for a lawyer was not an easy one, but it has been a very impressive and satisfying conclusion.

THANK YOU SO MUCH
My brother was wrongly accused of having sexual relations with a minor. My family was so scared that no one would believe him. After calling Matt he immediately went to work and got all the charges dismissed. Matt proved his innocence. THANK YOU from my entire family!

Child Custoy
Although Matt was confident in winning our case inside the courtroom, he was able to settle outside which saved me a lot of time and money. He’s honest and open and i would definitely use his services again if needed.

great competent lawyer
I have a child support modification and I was referred to Mr. Tyson. I got screwed by the State of Texas and was really upset. After meeting him and hiring him I felt so much better about the situation. He has a great attitude and is very upfront and honest. The billing was very open and itemized. The end result is I got a favorable ruling and no longer will have to pay child support for a year. Very satisfied.

Family Attorney | Sep 30
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Matt is an extremely capable attorney, and an honest and worthy opponent. Matt took a case for a formerly Pro Se mother who suddenly had no job and nowhere to stay. Matt was able to come up with solutions and ideas that I had not considered when I was working on behalf of the father. It could have been an extremely difficult and expensive case for both parties, as they each were wanting sole custody, or a 50/50 with each insisting on exclusive rights. Matt went above and beyond to do the right thing for his client, and in the end, help reach a 50/50 that all parties, and the kiddo, were excited about. Matt does what he says, and goes out of his way to do it WELL! A client would be privileged to have Matt as their counsel."
