Matthew Brinton and his team are excellent. He helped me with a tenant/landlord case. I don't know what I would have done without him. He was a genuine advocate during one of the toughest, most stressful chapters of my life. I feel like he listened to my case and my needs, and helped me reach a settlement that has helped me move on with my life. I'm so incredibly grateful. He is professional, intelligent, and incredibly well-informed about tenant law. He has a calm demeanor, intelligence, and integrity. A good guy with good judgment. I'm beyond grateful he took my case. I can't recommend him enough. Also, he has an excellent team. Yoselyn and Ashley were fantastic -- detail oriented, very calming, and kind.

Professional and Responsive
I initially reached out to Matt for a landlord/tenant dispute via his website on a Sunday in 2016. Matt contacted me the same day and offered immediate assurance that I was protected under the law after being served an illegal eviction notice by my landlord. Never having been in this situation before, I was naturally frantic and Matt was there to help me keep my mind at ease every step of the way. Matt is extremely knowledgeable and while I continued to receive harrassing notices from my landlord, Matt continued to fight on my behalf and now the other other tenants in the building that were affected. After 10 months of exhausting work on all sides, Matt was able to deliver on the expected results and I was able to move out of my apartment with plenty of money to start over at a new place. I'd definitely reccommend Matt for any landlord/tenant issues.

Exceptional attorney who delivered
My husband and I hired Matt to handle a landlord/tenant dispute. Matt was exactly the attorney we needed. He was appropriately aggressive, thoughtful, strategic, and added so much value to our case. Our case went to mediation where he delivered a result that was what we wanted. We appreciated his expertise in this field and in mediating cases. His writing is impeccable and persuasive. As a fellow attorney, I'd like to say I couldn't have done it better-but in truth, Matt handled our case far better than I. I wouldn't hesitate in hiring him.

Extremely Intelligent and Diligent Lawyer
Matt Brinton took on my case when he was working at Basta, a non-profit law firm in Los Angeles. He was incredibly hard working and meticulous with the details of my case. My case settled in mediation with a result that was above and beyond what I expected. Matt was an integral part of helping that settlement happen. Anyone would be lucky to have him as their attorney. I recommend him highly.

"It is rare that you meet someone as highly skilled and intelligent at dissecting and litigating a case as Matt Brinton. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Brinton for several years, collaborating on several cases. I was always amazed at his ability to quickly get up to speed on a case and then to put in to action a strategy that resulted in big wins for our clients. We still miss him him and his colorful suits around the office! Any client would be lucky to have Matt in their corner, and I give him my highest recommendation."
