Grech legal review
very fine attorney. Helped save my home with a chap 13 filing. Listens,discusses, researches and comes up with solutions. Added bonus-works off his computer producing bare minimum of paperwork saving environment. Writes legal briefs that are very concise and crystal clear saving communication time with opposing counsel, Matthew's criminal law background helped a lot in coming up with a strategy for my case He is a gentleman and will work with you.

Matthew Grech - Highly recommended estate planning
Matthew recently worked together with my wife and me to update our trust. He was excellent to work with; knowledgeable, professional, and understanding. Trusts and estate planning touches on many personal and confidential considerations. His approach to estate planning matters made us very comfortable at all times and helped us to work thru the various considerations and decisions we needed to make. I would definitely recommend Matthew for estate planning needs and will work with him again.

Estate Planning
I hired Matthew to do my State Planning and he's exceeded my expectations. He made the whole process so easy for me and he was available for any questions I had either by phone or email. He was easy to work with. He worked around my schedules and never pressured me with timelines. Matthew reviewed all aspects of state planning ( Trust , WILL ) with me 2 times to ensure I get all my questions are answered . He took care of everything including transfer of Deeds. It was amazing experience for me . I highly recommend Matthew Grech for state planning . He is AWSOM … I know Matthew will help me into the future

Bankruptcy and debt
He just asked me to submit to him all the required supporting papers/documents but he prepared all the paper works and requirements for bankruptcy filing. He informed and explained to me all about my case & just let me read and sign the paper works. I'm very satisfied the way he explained to me about my bankruptcy case,

Beyond helpful!
Matthew was able to help me much more than the previous probate attorneys that I had consulted with. His unique combination of probate and bankruptcy were key to finding the perfect solution. I'm very grateful and plan on hiring him again for my own future estate planning needs.

My lawyer, Mr Grech helped relieve much of the other stress and complications that follow a accident with injuries. He made the processes extremely transparent and followed up with me along my physical rehabilitation stages. He was the ultimate professional.

Great Experience
We hired Matt to set up our trust. It was very difficult to face a lot of decisions that go into preparing something like that and Matt was always available to assist in everyway. He provided us things to think about that we never imagined and served as a compassionate listener while trying to figure sensitive family matters out. He diligently prodded us along, sending email reminders while we stalled at times, keeping us on track and focused for completion. We did it! and we wouldn't hesitate in choosing him again for anything related to his practice,
