Matt handled our case against the homebuilder who built our dream home. His knowledge and experience in the field was the reason we prevailed. Matt is a great listener and communicator. He is very soft spoken which helps relieve the stress of a difficult situation. He always gave us sound advice and kept us up to date on all aspects of our case. If I ever need to engage an attorney again, I need not look beyond Matt and his firm. We could not have chosen a better attorney or person.

At the age of 69 years I sought the advice of Mr. Mussalli.
I had originally founded my medical practice as a solo practitioner and later brought in physicians who I thought were honorable. As time went on my partners made efforts to force me out and finally told me that I had to leave.
This action was then followed by a demand for money to cover the cost of finding my replacement and also for corporate debt.
Mr. Mussalli was attentive and sympathetic throughout the next five years. He was always available and reassuring. He researched the law on my situation and carefully guided my wife and I through a prolonged period of discovery and depositions.
In 2013 we went to trial before a jury who gave us a very favorable verdict. During the trial Matt was methodical and efficient in bringing the facts before the jury. He was always focused and quick to make his point on matters of law. He showed great skill in his oral presentations and witness examination. He assembled a great and hardworking team who were always ready with the appropriate documents. They seemed to have everything at the tip of their fingers.
The jury verdict was appealed and went before the 14th Court of Appeals. Matt was well prepared for this eventuality having kept an appellate lawyer informed since our trial. The oral presentation in November 2014 went well for us.
In July 2015 the Court of Appeals ruled in our favor on almost every issue
"The boys" asked to settle and we received a cash settlement. We had won.
In summary I would highly recommend Mr. Mussalli. He is a great listener with an excellent knowledge of the law and an imposing presence in court. He is an ethical, compassionate and caring human being.

Mr. Mussalli was one of the kindest men I have ever known. He was persistent and diligent with my case and I couldn't thank him enough for his efforts. He was honest and up front with my family about every detail of the case the entire way through. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to guide my family through this stressful process!
