Excellent!
Matt made a stressful situation seem manageable. He was very straight forward about the process and let us know what would happen during each stage of the bankruptcy. He even offered a little comic relief. I would highly recomend Matt.

Great attorney!
We couldn't have asked for a better attorney! Matt is professional, knowledgeable and overall a great guy. He navigated us through our bankruptcy with ease, making a tough situation a bit easier. We highly recommend Matt McCune.

Conns battle
I filed bankruptcy and conns home plus was part of it. They continued to send me bills and emails to collect the Debt after the bankruptcy was discharged. Matt worked very hard and after a bit was able to get the emails and collections to stop and eventually I received a check I wasn’t expecting Thank you Matt for your excellent work

This is your team
There are no reasons not to retain Matt and his team. Super professional, ridiculously thorough and responsive. Even before my case was discharged I had referred Matt and his team to another friend and they are equally thrilled with their performance. I have and will continue to refer Matt and his team to anybody that needs to file a BK. He made a difficult and trying time as easy as possible and I cannot tell you how much that means to me.

Matt has done a great job!
I hired Matt as my bankruptcy attorney over 5 years ago. The first couple of years we didn't correspond much. However, the last couple of years he has given me advise, always answered my questions, and we've had several phone calls, when email just doesn't get it done. He really has been great. He doesn't beat around the bush, he gives it to you straight and he knows what he's doing. He was very pro-active in getting my paperwork done for my discharge. I hope I never have to hire him again, but if a bad situation would ever arise again, he's the guy I would call. I would highly recommend him.

Highly proficient and knowledgeable
After meeting with several attorneys before filing, we happily decided to go with Matt. He is a very down to earth and doesn't beat around the bush. He is extremely knowledgeable and always willing to go the extra mile. Though I wouldn't want to impose on his weekends, even if you text him with a question at 7am on a Saturday, he will happily answer. Very easy to talk to and extremely understanding to our situation. This is a difficult time in our lives and I know we made the right choice.

Matt is more than excellent!
Matt has helped me with two bankruptcies. My first one was due to crushing medical debt when I was very young. He got it taken care of for me and walked me through all of the steps. The second one was with my husband and he was there 100% with us as well. We got our bankruptcy discharged last year and he was totally on top of everything, getting us our discharge papers. He charges a very fair rate and his services extend far beyond the case. I highly recommend Matt. He's great to work with, honest, and knows all of the ins and outs to give you the best advice for your particular situation.

Great help with EMATHY
Matt guided me through chapter thirteen with efficiency and empathy. Bankruptcy with a large debt can put you in a dark place. I needed some one who would help me understand the direction I should go. Matt McCune was with me the whole way, making sure I understood each step and why it was best for my situation.

Great Bankruptcy Attorney
Matt helped us through our Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. He was knowledgeable, clear in his explanations, and easy to get ahold of throughout the process. We never felt judged because of our situation, rather Matt made us feel at ease and supported. He was able to negotiate a settlement payment that we were very happy with. It took just under 3 years to pay off our settlement and receive our discharge papers. We are extremely happy to be moving forward and getting back on track with our financial health. I would definitely recommend Matt if you are in need of a bankruptcy attorney.

Great guy, well informed, straight to the point
I needed a consultation on how to best manage my debt situation. Matt was great and gave me all the advice that I needed and set me in the right direction. Had we not talked I would have been in a world of trouble, I'm glad he took the time to straighten me out.
Response from Matt McCune March 18, 2018
Happy to help! Sometimes the best thing I can do for good people is give them some quick and free advice that keeps them out of a potentially difficult situation. Kevin won't end up becoming a paying client but I was still able to help him significantly by doing a real quick free phone consultation to steer him in the right direction.

So helpful
Going into this I wasn't sure what to expect. Matt has been great to help explain the process, walk us through all of it and been great in helping us at the end get our final paperwork and discharge.

Matt the go to Lawyer!
Matt is to the point, don't mess around, and tells you how it is. There is no sugar coating, he knows what he is doing and will help guide you along the way! If I had a questions he had a answer. There was no grey area. I highly recommend him! But I hope I never get in that situation again, but if I did he is my first choice!

Amazing
I found Matt and he assisted me through an extremely tough time in my life. He gave me confidence that I would make it through an extremely contentious bankruptcy thanks to and caused by my ex-husband. 5 years later I am still sending anyone with questions about bankruptcy his way. I highly recommend him.
