I was charged in Aurora with Reckless driving, DUI/D then later charged with driving without an Interlok device by the prosecution. This caused me to violate my 3 probation cases which are in two different counties. The probation violations alone could have left me in prison for over 8 years. I contacted attorney Matt for representation and he exceeded my expectations. Matt defended me at trial and was able to get two of my probation violations withdrawn and the third one he negotiated a favorable outcome on. I was acquitted of DUI/D and reckless driving, plus the driving without an Interlok device charge was dismissed. I highly recommend attorney Matt for legal representation. He takes his legal defense very seriously and fights to leave you with the best possible outcome. Just from previous experiences with other attorneys, I believe that if I hadn't decided to work with Matt, I would have had an unfavorable outcome and my life very easily could have been ruined.

My son was falsely charged with a serious crime and I did not know who to hire as our attorney, so I researched and interviewed a few lawyers and then came across Mr. Hand on Avvo. After I finished speaking with him on the telephone about the situation my son was facing I felt confident to further meet Mr. Hand in person. Immediately after we met I knew Mr. Hand was going to represent my son to the best of his legal knowledge, skills, and experience. More importantly, I also felt he believed my son and was completely on his side. Throughout the who legal process Mr. Hand stood by our side, kept us informed, met with and advised my son as needed, and stayed professional, positive, and strong for us. Mr. Hand put his heart and soul into my son's case/trial and in the end won the case for my son. He is an outstanding man and attorney!

I have known Matt as a prosecutor and since he decided to become a private defense attorney. He has a reputation as an intense litigator who zealously represents his clients. He has a knack for being able to talk to jury’s about the socially awkward truth in dealing with sensitive matter. This makes him the right person to talk to for Criminal defense cases especially Domestic Violence. He has a reputation for being someone who does not judge people. He listens to the reasons and underlying facts of each case. This allows him to have and open perspective and to see the defenses other lawyers miss.
