Excellent attorney and service
I have the unfortunate experience of needing to file for chapter 7 bankruptcy. He made the process smooth, clear, and professional. He had good sound advice about choices to make. His assistance reduced my stress! Select him for your bankruptcy and follow his advice.

Outstanding Attorney
This gentleman and his firm have been providing me legal services for over 15 years and Matt has been not only a great attorney, but a good friend. I find his entire firm and staff to be knowledgeable, efficient, and aggressive on my behalf. He has prevented several questionable situations from becoming a problem because of his ability to approach it correctly, and defend myself and company from situations which have occurred as the result of day to day business. He and his partner, Kyle are great attorneys and I highly recommend them both should you need an attorney.

Recent Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Matt and his team are AWESOME! Matt assisted my husband and I in filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Matt was/is uber efficent in filing our case and answered all of our questions, even if it was a question he'd been asked a zillion times before; he made us feel as though he'd been asked the question for the very first time. He made us feel at ease and was thorough before, during and after our case. Matt said, "The process would be like a drive through oil change, quick and easy". And believe it or not, it was! I highly recommend Matt, he's the guy that "speaks" for the "little guy". :-)

Very knowledgeable and thorough
Matt did a great job handling my Bankruptcy/Chapter 7 case. He was very knowledgeable with the complicated matters I presented. My hearing was the smoothest and quickest of the 10 cases I observed. This proved Matt did a great job preparing my case for the hearing.

Professional and patient
I interviewed several attornies before hiring Matt. He helped me navigate through a bankruptcy process that changed several times due to my personal issues. He provided me with options to best protect me and my future without judging. Matt and his staff kept me up to date on any changes throughout the process. Whenever I was in his office I was treated with dignity and respect and I will always appreciate that.
