During a particularly rough patch in my marriage I began exploring the idea of divorce. I reached out to a few attorneys. After contacting Ronald Mattson for a consultation, Ronald got right back to me. I was pleasantly surprised he reached out personally to set up a meeting. Ronald listened to my story, understood where I was coming from and outlined my options based on his extensive background. He was patient with me , very professional and thorough. He walked me through the process from start to finish and made me feel like I was not alone and that he and his team would be there for me step by step. He helped me understand the process, the time frames involved, he helped me see “the big picture” and all of a sudden my problems seemed possible to overcome.
He was professional and had a sense of humor that helped even the worst moments. It was comforting to know that I would be taken care of . His communication skills and style are very direct and plain language which makes it easy and efficient to do business with him. He was encouraging with his advice while still being respectful of my wishes. I did not end up moving forward, instead we continued on with couples counseling, but if I ever find myself in need I would not hesitate to contact Ronald again.

He seemed to know what he was doing. But, the costs went way up and he seemed kind of petty and argued over everything. I really felt that he was too contentious and too expensive and wasn't acting in my best interests.
I was later horrified to learn that my attorney was the attorney who was keying cars in the Columbia Tower parking lot because they didn't park right. He plead guilty in court, so he admits that he did it.
His angry and petty actions in the parking lot explain a lot about how he handled my case. I would never use him again and I couldn't recommend him to anyone.
