EXCELLENT for Bankruptcy results
I was treated very well when I came to Matthew L. Johnson and Russel G. Gubler from day one. They listened to me and gave me forms to complete and scheduled another meeting. Their legal assistant , Annabelle, was so helpful throughout the entire process. Recommend this Law firm with the highest degree of confidence. i was always welcome in the office and never felt like a stranger. When you need help these are the lawyers you want.

True Professional
Matt is a true professional at what he does. He knows the law extremely well and is structured and decisive in his approach. He provided excellent guidance through our difficult time. I felt he really cared about my business and me on a personal level.

Amazing
Mr. Johnson helped me to save my business from a very difficult economy. He was able to "clean up" what others had started, and able to turn my case around. He was more than fair in his billing practices and I would highly recommend him.
