I retained Matt's services to assist my son with a domestic violence matter in which he was wrongfully accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend. Matt not only obtained a very favorable result for my son, his expertise, experience and compassion were essential and went a very long way towards making an extremely trying and difficult circumstance as bearable as possible. Matt is a credit to the legal profession and if you choose to retain his services, you are making a wise decision.

Accidents happen and I got myself into a hit and run. I goggled the charges for a hit and run and for the state of Colorado they don't take hit and runs lightly. My accident was minor and I needed someone who had knowledge and understood my situation. After reaching out to several lawyers, Matthew was quick to help. He was able to get me in that day and start working on my case. Over the few weeks we worked together he was always in touch, easy to work with, and very informative. The outcome I got after going to court with Matthew was outstanding. I could tell that he really cared about my situation and I would recommend Matthew any day to someone who needs a lawyer.

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 was arrested this past summer at a String Cheese Incident concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater for felony cocaine possession and trespassing. I do not believe myself to be a chronic offender of such instances and decided it would be wise to hire a lawyer to help me resolve the issue. I dont know the full range of prices for Denver lawyers, but Matthew was not an easy expense for me. After my case was resolved, I knew it was worth every penny, receiving the most favorable outcome I could in this case.
The outcome is not the reason why I recommend Matt so highly. From our first conversation on the phone, before I paid him, even until after the case was fully resolved, Matt seemed to be fully invested and 100% caring not just about my case, but about my future as a person. Within the case, his attention to detail and drive to exhaust every possible option within my case were very apparent.
With my unsupervised probation, Matt made sure that I understood the full repercussions of what would happen if I got in trouble again. He seemed to really be invested in what happened to me, and did not want to have to meet again on the wrong terms.
Besides being arrested for a felony, my experience with Matt was great, from communication to personal investment he was always there. Definitely a great lawyer.

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.

I had gotten myself in a bit of a big pickle that would have changed my life forever. Matt was smart, kind and quick to get back to me with all questions and concerns. He gave me sound advise and ended up getting my case dropped. He refunded me the amount I paid upfront if I had gone to court and only charged me a consulting fee. Would highly recommend Matt! Great, honest and empathetic. I am forever grateful and I have turned my life around for the best.

Matt went above and beyond to ensure that my case had a better outcome than I would have ever expected. He negotiated a deferred sentence in my case, getting the majority of the charges dropped due to his extensive knowledge of the legal system and ability to use this to his clients' advantage. He also was able to ensure that I didn't have a lifetime ban on firearms, which was extremely important to me as I love to hunt. Throughout my 1 year deferred sentence, Matt has continued to assist me with any questions I've had, and has assisted with getting paperwork pushed through the courts system when necessary. He's always been very prompt in responding to calls/emails, and gives a thorough explanation so that I understand my options completely. I felt completely comfortable talking to Matt about anything and everything, and felt as though he took a personal interest in the outcome of my case-something you definitely don't get with every attorney. I would use Matt again in a heartbeat (hopefully I won't have to, though)! I highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a great criminal defense attorney. He will go above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome, and is great to have on your team when things get tough.

He is very honest and will tell you how it is and what he feels he can do for you. He is very professional and a great communicator. Quick to respond to all your needs.

Right off the bat, please let me say that you should know your rights and never ever give up or take for granted that you are being charged with a crime, no matter how insignificant the situation may seem! I made the terrible mistake of holding items in my pockets while shopping and completely forgot about them and upon exiting the store was detained and was ultimately charged with theft by a major retailer. The police were summoned immediately. The department store staff and the police were sympathetic and understanding when I explained I had every intention of paying for the items, but nevertheless the officer ended up giving me a citation for theft and a summons to appear in court. The officer explained to me that it was NO BIG DEAL and that I should just show up to court on the set date, plead guilty and I would get fined and maybe community service and let it be done with it. And I would have done exactly that, if I had not run it by my father first. When I told my father about my mishap his immediate response (after he called me every name in the book) was that I needed legal representation immediately because I clearly did not understand the severity of the issue. After some internet navigation he came across Mr Matthew Hand and chose him because my father said he seemed to have the legal experience I badly needed. I was extremely impressed with Mr Hand's professionalism from the very beginning. He explained to me how difficult the case was because of the overwhelming evidence collected against me, (statements from the store personnel, the police, and store video surveillance, plus everything I myself said against me because the police officer put me at ease and I was more chatty than I should have been) but that despite all of this he was going to try to negotiate a favorable outcome. He explained in great detail each and every single one of my options and the possible outcome of each one and all of them seemed very distasteful. A conviction would have spiraled my plans and future complete off track. But after every meeting and email swap with Mr Hand I would update my dad and he would tell me, "Stick with Mr Hand, he is going to help you through this." And of course, he did! Well the big day came and I was a nervous wreck! We show up to court and Mr Hand explains to me that he will try and plea it to where I can do community service, some classes and a fine, and hopefully obtain a case dismissal upon completion of all programs, but again, no guarantees. Since I understand that mistakes have consequences I prayed for this outcome which seemed fair. The prosecutor and Mr Hand went into the adjacent room to confer for what seemed like an eternity and when they returned the prosecutor looked right at me and told me, "Young man, you have been diligently represented." You made the right choice in selecting your defense council and we will be dismissing the case when the judge returns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No classes! No fines! No community service! Even told the judge that even though there was ample evidence to properly prosecute, that in the name of justice the defense summary showed I deserved another chance! So there you have it! That evening we said a prayer for Mr Hand too! I will close with 3 things! 1) I apologize for the length of this review! Cannot tell my story in less words! 2) I am currently studying to hopefully become an EMT with the local fire department so a favorable outcome was very important to me. 3) Take my father's advice like I did and if you need legal help, seek out Mr Hand immediately! I almost did not and it would have cost me my future! One meeting with him will convince you that although there are many choices out there for you, choosing him as your legal council will be the correct choice! My case although small, seemed extremely difficult but we won! He will believe in you and will fight for you till the very end!
