Exellent service and wounderfull staff
I hired Mr Green to help me with my criminal and immigration case. It was a tough year do to covid-19 but Matt and his team where there all the way answering all questions via email, txt or phone. I recommend Green | Evans-Schroeder not only because they are great at what they do but because they care for their client and help every step of a difficult way.

Exceptional services and advice.
Matthew has been my lawyer for 5 years and has provided exceptional service throughout that time. He and his associates have always been highly responsive and helpful to any question or query I had. Even when Matthew wasn't hired directly for his services he was still willing to help me solve and issues I had with my immigration process. I would happily recommend him to others.

Satisfied Client!
Matthew Green was hired to represent my son for his DUI. At a later date also for both of my kids for the DACA program. Both cases were successful & we were extremely happy with his honesty & kind , generous advice. Would be happy to recommend his services!

The best
I was arrested on DUI charges and I when I met with Matt I was completely ashamed of what I had done not to mention scared out of my mind. During the whole process Matt kept me updated and represented me when I didn't have to be there. Whenever I had questions about the process or what was going on with my case Matt was there for me, I was able to get Matt on the phone and talk to him personally. Matt was such an incredible lawyer for me I am in debt to him not only were my charges dropped but I went through the whole process with somebody that I was comfortable with which I think is a huge part of the legal process. Matt and Molly Kincaid were incredible they made the process so easy and so stress-free to be completely honest I hope I never have to see them again but if I have to I know I will be in great hands. I highly recommend Matt to anyone not only for criminal cases but the way he is I can see why he chose immigration as his specialty he is there for the people and he's there for you, he treats you like a person not just another dollar. I can't say thank you enough for the way of it Matt and Molly worked with me and handle my case all I can say is they were just incredible.

Fantastic Lawyer
Matthew came highly recommended from a family friend and I am so glad that I took that advice. Matt was an incredible lawyer throughout every step of my case. He communicated the situation and kept me updated so I knew exactly what was going in the system. Not only that but he was extremely effective in the courtroom and my case was dismissed. I could not be happier with the results.

Honest and Efficient
Matthew Green was the defense lawyer to my brother who was involved in a serious criminal case. Matthew treated my brother with a high level of integrity and respect. Matthew was diligent in providing constant thorough explanations and updates to my brother on a consistent basis. Matthew went out of his way to consult colleagues when necessary. He spent countless hours advocating for my brother and conducted himself with high professionalism. Matthew ensured each court occurrence was impartial and fair. My brother received the best outcome considering the circumstances. Several years later I found myself in a situation that required legal assistance. Without hesitation I turned to Matthew for guidance. He provided me with the same professionalism, provided me with sufficient communication to point me in the right direction and never judged me. Because of Matthew’s support I have been able to overcome this minor roadblock successfully.

Amazing attorney and staff!
I find myself very lucky to have hired Mr. Green. My future was looking pretty bleak after being turned down by other lawyers. That was until I was recommended by another attorney to look up Mr. Green. Once he got a hold of my case, he started working hard on it. Not only was he able to lessen the past criminal charges, but now working towards my US citizenship. I have immense gratitude for Mr. Green’s hard work, kindness, and his outstanding knowledge about the legal ramifications pertaining to my case. Mr. Green made a very critical difference in my future after being in obscurity for 25 years. I shall forever remain indebted to Mr. Green and each one of his wonderful staff.

Gods advocate
Matt Green came to our defense with full throttle. Very knowledgeable in both criminal and immigration comes very handy with someone who is willing to travel and go the extra few more miles to fight for our human rights. Their is no doubt in our minds he was send to us by God. We have dealt with bolony attorneys who have only robed us of our hard earn money. Matt and his staff are excellent heart caring individuals. With much respect, thank you! The Reichel Chavez Family

Great great Lawyer!
After interviewing several lawyers we decided Mr Green was the best. He assured us He would do the best He could over the lenght of our case which took over 2 years and still continues to this day. What looked like a grimm 15+ year sentece, with his expertise , he managed to lower it to a 5 year sentence. He made our journey a bit more bearable and was always very pleasant and kind.

The most amazing lawyer in Tucson.
Mr. Green is in an entire class of his own. I had met with several lawyers to help with my DUI case prior to meeting with Matt. He was professional, courteous, attentive, and truly cared to help me in any way possible. I left that meeting hiring him immediately without hesitation. He fought for me, told me what I needed to do, and explained the process of steps I needed to take to the T. All my charges got dismissed and he is the sole reason why my life is in a great place now. I will definitely recommend him to anyone that falls into the same situation I went through. Best lawyer in town, hands down.

The Best in the Field!
I was very satisfied with Matthew Green's services as my immigration attorney! ..... I was going through a very difficult times not knowing what the future had in store for me, but feel great relief knowing I had one of the best attorneys in Arizona representing me. He quickly started on my case right way, answering any questions I had in person. He kept me and my family up to date with everything. Immigration is one of the most stressful things I’ve ever had to go through and you feel so helpless I feel I made right choice in hiring him through this difficult time. Katherine, one of the newest additions to his team was very devoted to my case as well; such a sweet caring personality. Matthew put together a "very solid!" and detailed brief after it was submitted - My case was dismissed!!!!! :) Thank you Matthew Green!! Great victory!!! His excellence speak volumes!!!

receptionist
I absolutely love Matthew and his team and when we started out they had a wonderful receptionist. Now they have someone else who seems to cut you off when you are talking. Or when you are trying to figure out a time to come in she doesn't give you an option to let her know when will be best for you.She gives you one choice and if you can't make it oh well. She also makes a point to get off the phone right away.

Matthew and his team worked in constant contact with me and my family to successfully transition my status from H1B to Green card. Matt and his team were there with us at every stage and always on the end of the phone happy to talk us through any queries we had.

A Great Job
Matt Green handled my case beginning in the summer of 2014. I found Matt through referrals made by other attorneys whose judgement I trusted and I will always be thankful for their referrals. At our first meeting, I was impressed with Matt's calm and thoroughly professional demeanor. I left that first meeting convinced that I had found the right lawyer. From the beginning, I was struck by Matt's thoughtful questions and very apparent grasp of the important elements of my case. Matt's staff, including his investigator, were very professional and inspired confidence as members of my legal team. For my preliminary hearing, Matt prepared me, encouraged me and was patient and effective in getting my testimony on the record.. His courtroom demeanor appeared to be appreciated by the judge and the happy result of "case dismissed" is testimony to his effective presentation to the Court. Were it not for the nature of the charges, I would be happy to offer to personally communicate with potential clients...but instead will simply state that Matt Green is a compassionate, intelligent and most effective attorney and I urge anyone in need to contact him. Thank you....

Love them
My husband and I have been working with Matthew and his team since 2014 they have been right by mine and my husbands side. when we had our interview with immigration Matthew made sure he was there and that everything would go smoothly. when we had found out that we didn't get approved, Matthew and his team was right there and made sure everything would be OK. Jessie had helped us with our wavier and she is truly an amazing person all around. If i knew anyone going through something like i am i would tell them to go see Matthew and his team. they are right there when ever you need them and you can call or email them and they always get back to you. they really do treat you like family and make sure everything is done right.

Matthew is one of the few lawyers in Arizona who truly understands the nuances of defending an immigrant in both criminal and immigration court. He is an exceptional litigator who can represent a client in any court in the state and he does not shy away from taking on the system to protect his clients' rights. I highly endorse Matt."
