    I worked with Matt on a trademark application that had been initially refused registration at the US Patent & Trademark Office. He was extremely pleasant to work with--prompt, professional, and exceptionally knowledgeable. Together, we managed to overcome the refusal. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him on this matter, and would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking a business lawyer in San Francisco.

    Matt is an excellent attorney and business lawyer. I've known Matt for years in both a professional and personal setting. I've learned from his knowledge and expertise in business matters and I've referred him to others in the past and will continue to do so. If I needed a business lawyer, Matt would be the first guy I'd call. Brett A. Burlison
