Highly recommend Matthew!
Matt educated me well on BK options so I could make a fully informed decision. His followup was timely and clearly demonstrated the he grasped my concerns and offered up several options with specific steps to take that would deliver outcomes with short-term and long-term implications. He’s smart and very professional. Pleasant to work with!

A successful story
Was referred to Mr. Anderson by the foreclosure group for assistance, we were taken under his wing and he proceeded to take motions to protect our house and well being. He has a persistence of achieving goals and kept us appraised of the ongoing process at all times. With his efforts to fight for us he accomplished what we were told would never happen, he secured our discharge for bankruptcy and we are no longer under the stress of said issue. Would I recommend useing him in a heart beat, he is outstanding with his professionalism and well he has a causal cadence about him sorta like a doctor with bed side manners we found very soothing. I thank him for all he did for us.

Great service
I’m so thankful with lawyer Matheo for his hard job done on my cases. He help me ten years ago to file a bankruptcy after the bad economy at the time and helped me to start all over again. And now when I sell my house I find that the bank of the second mortgage they never discharged me of the debt, and when I call lawyer Matthew he was ready to fight for me again he responded to me quickly and at the end he fixed the issue with the bank and I got my money back. I definitely recommend Lawyer Matthew Anderson. Matthew is the best and friendliest Lawyer I know.

Forclosure/Credit Card Settlement
Matt has helped me on my Foreclosure crusade. It's been many years of stress and uncertainty. Unfortunately, mortgage companies have a different agenda. However, Matt has been very helpful throughout the process. He's been able to educate me and understand my rights. If anyone is in foreclosure process, it's absolutely imperative to get legal advice and understand you rights(trustee, servicer, foreclosure timelines, etc.). Matt has done this and more. We see the light at the end of the tunnel and I look forward to Matt getting us there. We also have employed Matt to help settle our business debts. He is actively working on settlements with our credit card companies. Again, he knows the process and most importantly can move the needle. We are optimistic that we will be able to get to a resolution soon.

My home was saved from foreclosure
I was referred to Matthew Anderson by another attorney that did not specialize in Foreclosures and / or bankruptcies. The first time we spoke, I was in tears, I felt broken by the system and helpless. Matthew has such positive energy, it is hard not to go away from a phone call or meeting feeling positive too. When the mortgage company will not speak to you, Matthew will take charge and make things happen. Patient and kindness and depth of knowledge is more than evident in Matthew's handling of my loan modification. I highly recommend Matthew Anderson, his hard work and diligence saved my home for me, and nothing can mean more than that when you have lost all hope. Thank you Matthew, I hope that I do not have to use your expertise in the future. :)

Loan Modification
I hired Matthew to obtain a Loan Modification for me and my family. Matthew did a great job battling the bank for us through many years of negotiations with the bank. Stopping multiple foreclosure attempts and finally getting us a great Loan Modification that has allowed us to keep our home. Matthew is very detail oriented and will always take the time to discuss your case with you and make sure you completely understand what is going on. Through the whole long process Matthew was very supportive and caring about a very personal and emotional situation. I would definitely recommend Matthew.

My husband and I hired Matthew to avoid a foreclosure and bankruptcy. He has successfully secured our first mortgage at a amazing low interest rate and he is diligently working on our 2nd loan and bankruptcy. He is hard working, dedicated and professional. We have complete confidence in Matthew and feel at ease with him during such a stressful process. We highly recommend Matthew Anderson and are indebted to him and see a sense of peace in our future. Thank you Matthew for all that you have done for our family.

Excellent Attorney
Due to some severe health problems in the family, our home went into foreclosure. We searched for an attorney and decided to hire Matthew. It is the best choice we could have made. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field of foreclosure laws and knows all the minutiae pertaining to the them. He caught many improper actions by the trustees regarding missing documents and correct procedures. Without Matthew, these would never have been found.

Best in the business
I first hired Mathew Anderson 10 years ago. At that time he was able to help me fight a large mortgage company who had denied my loan modification and I was in jeopardy of losing my home. He successfully won a new modification, which included better terms of interest-rate. . Unfortunately I had to re-hire Mathew to help save my home again after my husband passed away two years ago. Matthew once again successfully negotiated a new modification agreement with better terms interest-rate and saved my home from foreclosure. I would highly recommend Mathew to anyone seeking a professional and competent attorney. On a side note, he’s nice, and I consider him a friend I can count on. Sincerely, Melody Edgington

Matthew to the Rescue.
Our house went into foreclosure due to illness and death in the family. We hired Matthew and he has worked diligently with us in dealing with the trustees and mortgage holder who were less than forthcoming. He is extremely knowledgeable about NW law pertaining to foreclosures and financial matters and has been beyond helpful. he is also very compassionate and understanding and we are so thankful to have Matthew representing us in this matter, as we feel that there is not a more competent attorney anywhere. Thank you Matthew .

When All Hope Seemed Lost
Due to some unforeseen issues, I hired Matt to help resolve the mortgage debt we found ourselves in due to a loss of our normal income. Over the last several years, Matt has been a tireless advocate for my family with our lenders. His dedication and thorough knowledge of the foreclosure and modification process are evident by the fact he navigated the process with a clear understanding and the expected timeframe. With his help, we were able to obtain a modification that lowered our payments and our stress. I know anyone fearing the loss of their home is living with what seems like an insurmountable level of stress, but know that with someone like Matt in your corner, you can be assured that all options will be explored and Matt will consider your desires as he works for your best possible outcome. Do not lose hope; take the time to get Matt’s professional advice.

Successful Bankruptcy
Matthew is invaluable in representing me in my Chapter 13 bankruptcy and mortgage loan negotiations. I tried representing myself and was overruled when went to court. After retaining Matthew the bank’s attorneys stopped their actions against me. He is very thorough and treated with me respect and encouragement.
