This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
The Liszewski Law Group, Mr. Matthew Liszewski, helped two of my family members with divorce and parenting time issues. In both cases, false allegations, alienation and false orders of protections were involved. Mr. Liszewski was aggressive and determined to ensure that the rights of both my son and brother-in-law were preserved. If it were not for Mr. Liszewski and the Liszewski Law Group, both my son and brother-in-law would continue to be alienated from their children. Trust me, not even the dirty games played by the opposing counsel and his client could stop Mr. Liszewski from obtaining equal parenting time for my brother-in-law. In addition, Mr. Liszewski never stopped encouraging my son and brother-in-law to fight, even when they both became frustrated, emotionally exhausted, and wanted to give up. His down to earth empathy and true concern for their issues was a God send in both horribly difficult matters. Mr. Liszewski's goal was to fight and win - he did not disappoint! I truly believe he saved both their sanity as well as their lives.

Matt did an excellent job with my case. He was prepared and had a good strategy. The opposing side was difficult to deal with and he went above and beyond to achieve my goals. I could not be happier with the results and would highly recommend his services to anyone!

Great Lawyer!
I hired Matt to represent me in a child custody hearing. He was more than helpful with a consultation initially. When things escalated, he took on my case with very short notice. He and his staff were always helpful, friendly, and more than knowledgeable. He worked with me through the hearings and was quick to respond to an emails and phone calls. I was in another state for much of the pre-trial time. Matt and his staff worked very hard to make sure they had all they needed from me with as little travel/office time as possible. Not only did he win my case, he helped me negotiate better terms than I had initially asked for in the settlement. I wholeheartedly recommend Matt to anyone. He is honest, straightforward, and willing to work hard for you.

Amazing Representation
Going through a divorce is never easy, but Matt made it a great experience. I was always informed on what was going on with my case. I received daily emails with information from my ex husband as well as issues related to custody. Matt took my fear and concerns into his heart and made sure that the ultimate outcome was one that was in the best interest of my daughter. I will forever be grateful to this amazing law firm for all the hard work and dedication.

A Pedigree Lawyer, who speaks in an approachable but strong vernacular, and communicates truthfully and clearly.
After getting off the phone with Matt, the first time, I could feel a sense of decorum and honesty. There was an overwhelming amount of straightforwardness, detail, mixed in with a rapid and real congeniality. He knew my pain. He understood. As a father dealing with a woman who consistently hired lawyers that were less scrupulous, and hawkish in their attacks on me, it felt extremely serene, to have, him in my corner. A man who has a great grasp of the law, and of the issues surrounding it. He explained straight-forward in a language I could understand, what to expect, and the potential avenues it could go down. If you are on this site, you got hosed before, I know I did, and so you are probably on this site trying to avoid another lawyer that will be that self-serving archetype we know them to potentially be. Matt is finally an answer to prayer, and answer to being abused and kicked around by lawyers my wife typically likes to hire. Incidentally, its interesting to note that, typically people hire lawyers they resonate with. So if you are out for money and power, that is typically the weapon you purchase in a lawyer like my wife. But my goal was for something fair for my children, unlike my wife, and her attorney who was disbarred and has a terrible rating on this site, Matt's rating is PERFECT for a reason. Which in hindsight, I can attest, has been my wife's modus operandi in the past several years since our separation is to choose bossy, pushy, lawyers that reflect my wife's inner demons. I chose Matt because he was Good. He was Fair. And he was straightforward of the expectations and possible outcomes. Thankfully my case settled in the conference and never saw court time. I had negotiated with my wife in the days leading up to it, and tried to reach the unreachable person. Matt was the Rock, I could depend on to back me up if negotiations would fail. And I feel it was his presence that kept me from getting railroaded again. He is a surgeon with the law, and I would recommend anyone, to just talk to him and gather a sense of what you idealize in a storybook lawyer you would want to represent you in a huge case. And that is Matt.

Phenomenal attorney, highly recommended
I was arrested for a second DUI in the city of Mesa, which has a reputation for being the worst possible city to get a DUI in the state of Arizona. The court is strict and prosecutors are notoriously difficult to work with. My particular case required a lot of finesse. Throughout every step of the way Matt explained the process and exactly what to expect. He was extremely responsive and always took the time to answer my questions throughout the entire ordeal. I am extremely satisfied with the results of the case. We won the MVD hearing and reinstated my driver's license. We also struck a plea agreement with the city of Mesa. Thanks to Matt, what would have been a second DUI was pled down to an "Attempted DUI" which does not count as a DUI. What could have been several weeks in jail, a year's drivers license suspension, and an inordinate amount of fines and other requirements turned out to be a simple fine and alcohol counseling through the plea agreement. Matt provided fantastic representation and I recommend him highly.

This Lawyer Was My Calvary To The Rescue
After trying and failing to get representation from 7 other attorneys, Matt was brave and kind enough to agree to represent me three days before my scheduled trial. He worked diligently and applied 100% focus to my case. He did an exceptional job and the fact that he had less than 72 hours to prepare for trial makes him my hero.

An attorney who cares about his clients!
I was referred to Matt on March 2014. From the first moment I met with him, his confidence and knowledge made me feel very comfortable and assured me that my case was in good hands. His prices were absolutely reasonable, and I hired him on the spot. Matt walked me through every step of the process and was very patient with me and my case. Although it took about 8 months due to a few setbacks, Matt was able to help me get the best possible outcome. My situation was sensitive due to possible immigration issues but he always took precautions before taking any actions. Matt is an extraordinary attorney, and I will refer him to all of my friends and family in the future.

Top notch Lawyer!!
Deeply cared about our case.. made sure I understood everything that was happening, every step of the way. Very knowledgeable. Treated me as if I was his only client, I was able to reach him, not an assistant. And knowing he is very passionate and knowledgeable about domestic violence, put me at ease :-)

Professional, Intelligent lawyer with a heart
Matt was hired to help me with my child custody case and did an amazing job. He is a true professional and takes the time to personally get to know you, and your case, unlike most attorneys you will not be dealing with paralegals to work on your case, Matt works with you directly. Matt is also kind and makes time to fully explain things to you and ensure you understand. I would recommend him to anyone considering him to assist in their legal case.

An Exceptional Lawyer Providing Exceptional Service
Matthew; all the way from the beginning of my case up to the end kept me both informed and genuinely listened my concerns. He was my rock and even when I thought things were not going my way with his guidance and firm knowledge of the justice system I made it though the process to an agreeable conclusion. I would highly recommend Matthew to anyone who is looking at possible DUI/DWI charges as he is extremely knowledgeable in these matters and and will work hard on your behalf to see that you get the most just ruling possible. I do not regret hiring Matthew as my counsel and would recommend him to anyone seeking the same.

Great attorney
Matt was a great attorney, he helped me get through a very time sensitive child custody case in the state of AZ and Idaho, along with an old pending DUI case that I had never dealt with. He helped me with attaining protection orders, and I gained full custody of my child that required an emergency custody agreement from the judge; he is very well spoken, intelligent, personable, and trustworthy. He is the type of lawyer who is very real and honest, and he demonstrates great professionalism inside of the courtroom and out. I noticed Matt is respected by the judges and his peers, which I found that to be a respectable quality in an attorney. Not to mention, he is the kind of attorney who will think outside of the box for you, and he really does his homework and will fight for his client. Matt is a very positive, pleasant person to be around, and he speaks weekly at domestic abuse meetings, so for me he was great to confide in with the personal issues that I was going through at the time; I looked to him for the best advice, his advice was extremely helpful because he was the neutral party in my life at the time, and for that I am very thankful and grateful. He is the kind of attorney who will make himself available, he has fast response time and he was very easy to get ahold of. His prices were very reasonable; I would recommend him to anyone.

A lawyer who goes above and beyond.
I was referred to Matt by a friend of the family. He has gone above and beyond what I would expect from an attorney. He is always up front and honest and has kept me informed at every step in my case. Its a great feeling to know that my lawyer cares about the outcome of my case and is doing everything he can to represent me.

Family Court Case
Matt was much more that your run of the mill attorney. When I contacted Matt about my case he immediately put me at ease with his knowledge and understanding. He was always available for any question and truly made me feel like he cared about the well being of my family, not just about winning the case. He is friendly, personable, honest and smart. I would highly recommend his services! You will not be disappointed.

Great experience in a tough situation.
This was the first time i have ever needed legal consel in a disputed matter and I couldnt have asked for a more pleasant experience than with Matt. Matt was very easy to talk to about everything in my case which I place in a very high importance given the personal nature of my case. He not only prepared well for the case but prepared in several different ways to cover all scenarios. I only had one miscue with his services with a misunderstanding from the ruling given which caused me trouble with the opposing party which I take part responsibility, for not asking for clarification. Matt is an overall great attorney and really makes you feel like he is in your corner I would recommend him to anyone.
