Excellent counsel
I have had the opportunity to work with Matt, as a client, since he was a young, still wet behind the ears, associate with the then Preston Gates (now K&L Gates) firm. Matt has since made partner and justifiably so. Matt always been extremely responsive to our needs, been very knowledgeable, honest in terms of assessment of issues and opinions, and has become a trusted friend as well. This is a young gentlemen that I would not hesitate to recommend to any business concern as a person that will represent your interests honestly and with integrity.
