I received a notice in the mail that my wages were going to be garnished for a debt that was never mine. It wasn't on any credit report - not even the copies of reports printed from 2001. The debt was 15 years old! Matthew reviewed the case for me, helped me understand what was going on, Washington State laws concerning garnishment, and helped walk me through a chapter 7 bankruptcy so that I would be protected and all money garnished from me would be returned. None of this made sense until he helped guide me through the process. I discussed everything he said with my financial advisors and they felt confident that I was with the correct lawyer. He was professional and timely to each court hearing and most importantly, I didn't feel like a loser. I don't think people ever want to address that part? I really felt terrible and he helped me see that I could learn, recover, and thrive. Pretty cool. I'd recommend him to anyone.

Refused to answer or return phone calls. Said that he would "personally put together the petition" for my bankruptcy within one to two days here it is two months later never put it together and instead handed off my case without so much as telling me. Nevermind the fact I paid his fees for my bankruptcy 5 MONTHS AGO. Terrible lawyer would bit recommend to anyone ever.

After attempting to file bankruptcy in 2011 and having that company go bankrupt, taking 1200$ of mine with them, i had a very sour taste left in my mouth about this whole process, keeping me from paying a lawyer to file again. After being garnished for almost 9 months straight, i started looking, and Contacted Matt, Best decision i have ever made, right from the get-go he assured us the process would be smooth, walked us through everything, and has always answered all of our questions, he has been there anytime we needed anything. You can tell he honestly cares about all of his clients, and sees us all as people, not just money to make. Thank you for everything you have done for my wife and myself!

My wife and I decided that after a long battle with our debtors that we had enough and we're going to file for bankruptcy. When making this kind of decision we were more afraid of the representation and securing someone we could trust with our needs and concerns. Matthew was very prompt and easily accessible during every phase of this difficult and uncomfortable process. He was there to talk us through the process and give us sound advice on everything we needed. I will recommend him to others in the future.

I found Matt here on Avvo and read all his reviews. I was really impressed and went in to see him to help with an estate plan for me and my kids. He was extremely professional, answered every question I had, knew more than any other attorney I went to see, and was all around just a really great attorney. I can’t recommend him more.

Matthew is incredibly courteous, professional, and accommodating. My first impression when I walked into his office was not tense, anxious, or skeptical. I felt very relaxed, and within 5 minutes of speaking to him I was confident that he was going to be my best option, and I don't mean I had to settle. Not only for bankruptcy, but also involving other legal matters. He was always on-time, kept me in the loop, informed me of all the angles, and made sure I was comfortable with my decisions before proceeding. I would highly recommend him to anyone searching for legal services. Not to mention, he has good taste in coffee. Get his number, make an appointment, and then relax, because your case is in good hands with Mr. Johnson.

I had a serious bankruptcy issue and I was devastated until I met Matthew. This attorney doesn't play around. He was very efficient about the case, yet friendly at the same time. He explained every facts and details that I wasn't familiar with, which really gave me a sense of ease. I didn't have to stare at him the whole time without knowing what he was talking about. I was really glad he was the one who helped me. I'm forever grateful to this attorney.

I worked with him last year and would highly recommend Matthew. Very trustworthy, responsive, and knowledgeable. Understanding as well.

Matt handled me and my mother's bankruptcies together and was so kind and helpful. He's a darling and a great attorney. He was very responsive and assured us throughout the entire process

I recommend Matthew with everything I can. Expert, personal, sociable, and everything went incredibly smooth. I've worked with a ton of local attorneys because of what I do and I was surprised how good he was despite being so personable. Most attorneys aren't like that. We talked for hours about everything and took care of everything once I got him my information. Easy and quick
