Matthew represented my in several legal matters when I was a general contractor..
I was impressed with his knowledge of contract law and real estate law. He was a good negotiator and got the best possible results.
He answered my phone calls and emails in a timely fashion.

Matt has a high opinion of himself, in other words he does the "walk and doesn't back it up in court." HE takes on too much, and in return, doesn't give your case the time it needs to win. I hired him for a slam dunk case that a lawyer ran away from. My dog could have done a better job. I had expert reports from engineers and photos and he wouldn't use them, against my requests. I lost $120,000 on that case.
Next case was to get me out of trouble with a declining lending bank and work out a "workout." he said he was one of only a few able to do it. He refused to return phone calls to me or our negotiating source, and I lost everything I had, including my own house of 26 years. He called me his friend, and stuck me in the back of the pants. Now I'm living in the back of a run down apartment, living hand to mouth. His business is with [redacted] and they are the ones he gives a 100% attention. If you have a big real estate case, please pass him by. if it's a escrow or quit claim deed, he could probably due, but there are much cheaper lawyers to do the job. Matt is a good reason there are all those bad lawyer jokes.

I could not sell the real estate unless one of two things occurred-an agreement could be reached with the other party to sell and divide proceeds equitably, or going to arbitration or court. Matt Davis was able to get an agreement to list, and thereafter followed through as needed until title transfered. He did an Outstanding job. I was able to let the entire weight of the problem fall on his shoulders. That in turn allowed me to focus on my job. It was clear to me he got me out of quite a scrape. I was quite comfortable with him representing me in arbitration or court. He is also an Incredibly able and talented trial attorney. I can't recommend him enough.
