Best Lawyer EVER!!!!!!
Matthew was nothing short of amazing when dealing with my traffic case. He did not treat me like I was a number, he treated me like I was a human being, and he genuinely cared. From our very first meeting to review my case until the very end, he always made me feel like I was in great hands, and I was. He educated me every step of the way, on all possibilities and outcomes. And he was always available when I needed him. My case had the very best outcome, and it was all because of Matthew. He shed so much light during a very difficult situation. If you are looking for a lawyer that will take time to understand your case, and value you as a client then Matthew Gold is who you want to speak with.

A Lawyer that you can feel confident with representing you
Matthew Gold is the Lawyer you want representing you in your situation. He was very professional in all aspects of my DUI case, reviewing all my options and how the whole process works and was always available to answer my continuous questions in regard to the case. He gave me good advice and information throughout and was there for me on time every time. He is a no nonsense individual and makes sure you understand exactly what he is trying to convey every step of the way since the case was daunting at times. I believe his previous years of experience as a District Attorney was invaluable through all of this as well. I have also discovered that he also has an excellent reputation of respect with colleagues on both sides of the fence. I made a very good choice here and you can have the same opportunity. I wanted to get this out there for someone who has to make a wise decision fast if they are searching for the best lawyer.

Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 03
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. It is always a good idea to hire a former prosecutor because he knows what they are looking at and he knows their politics. Matthew also has great client reviews which means he cares and will call you back. Before hiring someone else, give Mr. Gold a call so that you can make an informed decision."
