| Hired Attorney
A formidable advocate
We had a problem that could have ended our business. Within an hour of our initial meeting, Matt had solved the problem. Two years later, the problem has stayed solved. We've engaged Matt on several other matters and he comes through every time. Matt is diligent, thorough, and personable, and you couldn't do better. Hire him.

Best Attorney for Employment Matters.
I was Mr. Cecil's client two years ago, and he helped our case with honest and wise point of views. Yes, we had an outcome we wanted. While other attorneys suggested closing our business, he was the only attorney who understood actual law that applied to us. I definitely recommend Mr. Cecil for any employment matters, and you will not regret.
