State Vs. Young
Regards to Matthew Rowan, Mr. Rowan took my case, went the extra mile in researching the laws etc. His Professionalism, Maners and including his office staff were exceptional in every way. The fees are acceptable & 'reasonable'! I would highly recommend Matthew to anyone who is seeking legal advice or representation. I also think he would make a fine judge<his work ethics, knowledge and fairness would be a great asset to the judicial system... Thank you for your time & expertise... sincerely Don...

Matt communicates clearly, acts deliberately and delivers results. He exercised patience explaining the process and lobbied on my behalf. I had originally hired another reputable lawyer in the valley, and Matt hands down categorically destroyed in all areas, comparatively. If you want timely, concise communication and competence, please hire Matt.

My worst nightmare came true! I was 58 years old and charged with felony crimes. I don’t even have speeding tickets. Anyway, Rowan’s team pulled together and took care of me. I am back to work, my charges were dismissed and expunged! Don’t hesitate to hire Rowan and his team! Seriously … you can trust them!

I am thankful someone referred to me to Matthew Rowan
I was in a business partnership that had gone south. I needed resolution so my family and I could get on with our lives and move forward in our business ventures. Matthew was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so thankful for their advice. His council was spot on, his professionalism was impeccable, and his staff was kind and attentive. My matter was resolved out of court, and I highly recommend Matthew Rowan.

Matthew Rowan is exceptional. He’s does what he says he’ll do. He came through for me and my family when other attorneys failed and overcharged or were too” weak” to take my case. If you’re looking for a great lawyer, look no further. He’s completely candid a forthright from the first moment. Him and his firm not only won my case, but earned my trust and respect aswell. Plus, his assistant Brian is amazing and a true blessing should you ever have any concerns or questions. I would strongly recommend Rowan and his team.

Best Attorney Around! Thanks Mat!
Ok so I received a Speeding Ticket from a Photo Radar Van while driving through Oregon last year, to most it wouldn’t be a big deal but to me who has a job that is very strict on speeding tickets and would keep me from any promotions, this was a game changer. Frantically I started looking up Attorneys to handle my case, I was turned down by 4 attorneys who stated the Photo Radar tickets are very very difficult to get dismissed and that I was better off just paying the ticket and receiving a ding on my record, literally last but not least I called Mathew, he listened to my case and accepted the challenge and although I was very sceptical that he would be able to beat the case I knew it was worth a chance. Mathew kept me updated throughout the process as he knew how anxious I was to hear an outcome. A few months in and after he put a lot of time and effort in to my case for what it was ( a traffic ticket) Mathew called me today to let me know my case was completely dismissed!!!! I could not be more relieved thank you so much Matt! This is a 100% real review and actually my first review ever but I knew this guy deserved some recognition. ANYONE looking for an attorney for any reason would be a fool to not Call Mathew. Once again thanks man I could not be happier that I called your Firm!

Very Professional and Helpful
In March of this year I found myself in a bit of a legal bind with a DUI. I was referred to Matt through another attorney in Medford and I couldn't be happier for that referral. Matt was courteous, professional, and extremely helpful in guiding me through all aspects of my case. He took the time to listen to my concerns and did his due diligence in gathering all the facts of the case. I am very appreciative of his time and help with this matter.I would definitely recommend Matt to anyone seeking smart and sound legal help.

Quick and Helpful Response
I asked Matthew a question, and did not formally consult with him, but he took the time to look up my information and provide a helpful answer. Unlike many of the other attorneys whose basic legal advice is, "get an attorney," he gave me a simple answer to a simple question. If I actually need a full consultation or to hire an attorney, he is the first person I will approach.
