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.
