Excellent Attorney
Matthew represented me during a very hard time for me in 2012. A divorce of 17 years. He was able to do things that I did not know could be done. Matthew is a great out of the box thinker and his negotiation skills were spot on. Every time I called him I received a quick response and he kept me positive with his professionalism. I am working with Matthew again on a new dispute and am confident we will prevail one more.

Review of Matthew F Janowicz
Mr. Janowicz guided our family through a child custody case. Our main point was to have the child live in a stable environment. We also wanted to make certain that our side of the family could have the ability to enjoy her regularly so that she could have a normal childhood. The entire two families have ended this case in peace. Matthew Janowicz walked us through all the steps and gave strong professional advice along the way. We are very grateful to him for his dignified handling of a difficult case.

Great trustworthy attorney!
Mr. Janowicz was very attentive, patient and sensitive to the needs of my case. His knowledge and tenacity of doing whatever it took to win was very impressive. In the end I walked away with a big check in my pocket and the confidence that if i ever need legal services again, I will reach out to him.
