Mathew was amazing. He handled the paperwork on my case from the very beginning always kept in contact weather it was through email or through the phone. I was very pleased with how he handled my case in court and any time I was feeling unsure reguarding my case he reassured me things would be ok. We went over everything one last time the morning of court and I left his office feeling confident. I will definitely be back with the law firm if need be.

I could never have found a more honest, caring, knowledgeable and best of all someone who cares about helping his clients and not about money as some attorneys do. He is affordable at best and explains any questions or concerns you have you never will feel like you are asking stupid questions thank you Matt Green for helping get me through this journey we call life you are an Angel in disguise.

Best Legal Counsel Experience
I needed Mr. Green's assistance with my very toxic, stressful, mentally draining divorce. Once I retained him, I immediately felt relieved by his very calm and assuring demeanor. My sleep literally improved. He was very thorough and kept me guarded from the evil. His staff is very polite and very sincere. If you are going through a divorce, I highly recommend his counsel. Before I chose Mr. Green's counsel, I spent several hundred dollars and hours in consultations to choose the right attorney. When I sat down and consulted with Mr. Green, it just clicked, and I knew that my search was over just from our first conversation. I truly don't know how I would have gotten through this without his expertise.

Matt took on my Kings County case and had to litigate against Wayne Hardcastle. Matt told me his expectations for a fair judgment, which widely differed from WH. In the end Matt’s view is what was settled upon. This is an honest and fair person who knows the law!

Beyond what I could have hoped for!
Matthew Green is just amazing, just simply amazing. He is incredibly kind, ridiculously intelligent, extremely hardworking, and much more! I will always feel such deep gratitude for what he did for my son. I went to court with my ex-husband over child custody, child support, and to advocate for our son's emotional well being. Mr. Green fought hard for my son, yet remained cool, calm and collected during the entire process. Which was such good energy to be around when I was going through something that was very anxiety provoking! On top of all of that, our outcome was great in court. I just want to say thank you to all the wonderful people at Gillett Law!! Mr. Green's compassion and diligence is unmatched. He answered all of my questions throughout the process. He reassured me and was patient and understanding. He is also really good at cracking a joke to ease your stress! I really cannot say enough about Mr. Green. He's not only a great attorney but a phenomenal person as well! I am writing this review because I want everyone who comes across his profile to call him and make an appointment, I know that you absolutely won't regret it! Thank you for the work that you do, for the dedication you gave to my case and for always staying realistic and positive!

Diligent, professional, honest
I came to Gillett Law because Greg Gillett came so highly recommended from friends and coworkers as an attorney, who was good, honest, fair, and would even return money if you over pay him (which I had never heard of). During a court appearance early in my case, I actually had another attorney from a different firm tell me that Greg wrote the book on child custody, that he was the best attorney in the state for custody issues, that he had a good repore with staff throughout the legal system and is well known for his fairness for both parties. (Which, apparently, is typically how the judge likes it to be.) As my case progressed, there was a lot of conflict with my exhusband requiring a lot of attention to detail and thats where Matt Green stepped in. Matt investigated for Gillett Law prior to becoming an attorney. He has worked diligently on my case from beginning to end proving to be very knowledgeable on the ins and outs of every detail when we got to court. After obtaining his credentials to practice law, I agreed to let Matt take over my respresentation in court, where he did the most amazing job respresenting what's best for me and my family. Matt has been prompt with returning my calls and emails, meets with me at last minute (many times staying late to complete our discussions about my issues, when working as an investigator and attorney), worked towards my goals, gave me options on how to pursue dealing with my high conflict custody issues, was open minded and very realistic when it came to deciding what I wanted and what the judge typically orders based on the circumstances, as well as fighting for me when it came time to play hardball. Matt helped guide me through a long and difficult legal process and simultaneously worked on multiple cases of mine. I have dealt with several lawyers during my divorce/custody situation and Matt Green has by far exceeded my expectations and changed the way I look at Our legal system. Matt encourages me as a person, parent, and professional, even stops to have a real conversation (not pertaining to my case) with me when seen in public. His humor, kind heart, and respect go far beyond the courtroom. I highly recommend Matt Green with Gillett Law. He definitely goes above and beyond.

Matthew L. Green represented me for my case, and I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. First off I'd like to say that he is all about trying to get the best outcome for the given situation. I loved his honesty and his work ethic. Things got done the same day he would say they'd get done. Matthew L. Green is very very smart as well which is very helpful. His response letters to counter the other attorneys letters were amazing, and helped me cement the victory in court. I would definitely without a shadow of a doubt hire him again if needed. I would also recommend him to anyone who needs a top notch family lawyer. He helped me I'm more then certain he will help you.

Service rendered
Mr. Green recently helped me with my case to modify the visitation schedule for my children so that we could change meeting locations. Mr. Green did an amazing job in my case. He listened to all my concerns and addressed them in the preparation of the response declaration very. He answered all my questions via email or calls promptly and was very thorough in his explanations. Most importantly, Mathew advised me well about the process of mediation which requires only the parties to attend. He waited patiently outside doing further research on details about my case, and when it was all said and done, I had a successful outcome in my hearing. Lastly, I was very impressed with his professionalism and willingness to go above and beyond for his clients. I will hire him again in a heartbeat!

Review of Matthew Green
Matthew Green was an excellent attorney. He represented me fairly and appropriately. He went above and beyond the expectations of my case and we came out with what we wanted. He was very detailed about his work and made sure everything was what I wanted. I would recommend him to anyone seeking an attorney for child custody.
