excellent legal representation
Mr. Haley has seen me through a personal injury case that took us close to three years to resolve. He was always responsive, gave me his honest opinion, and I always felt that he had my best interest at heart. He prepared me for all meetings with opposing counsel and supported me through all stages of the process. Last but not least, he went to the bat for me with insurance representatives. He clearly is very experienced and has many valuable contacts in the field. I could not have asked for better representation. Thank you!

Consultation
Mr. Haley took the time to respond my email and answer my questions in a professional manner. I sent my information to Mr. Haley regarding my incident, and he said he would review the information and get back to me if he thought that I had a valid case.

A real lawyer
It's rarely positive circumstances that bring you to a lawyer. On our first meeting with Matthew we knew right away he was for us. He wasn't stuffy and didn't speak down to us. He listened to our case, gave good insight and promised to do his best. No attitude, no passing us down to other lawyers- just a practical explanation of what was about to happen. It was like talking with a friend. This is Matthew. One of the regular guys. This speaks to his attitude and person - as for his lawyer talents - he was awesome. He didn't give up on the case as it started to look bleak. He kept at it while going against a much larger firm. And eventually he won our case. We highly recommend Matthew if you are in need of an attorney
