Great lawyer for a terrible time in life
Me. Dunaway walked me through the whole process and even gave me the bad scenarios in order to allow me to make the best choices and be aware of what all could happen. I would definitely recommend him if you need someone. He is professional, courteous, and a very good lawyer.

Messy debt
MATT is an amazing lawyer. When I first spoke with him about my situation he consulted me on the phone for free for about 30mins, while talking we agreed I needed to come in for further review. After deciding that filing bankruptcy was the best solution the process began. Matt has a way of making sure that as his client you completely understand the process that is going to take place and he is absolutely amazing at answering questions in a way that you don't feel dumb or crazy for asking. Matt also gets things done quickly. From the first phone call to the discharge of my case, it was all done in 90days.Thats with him letting me know exactly what was happening, when it was going to happen, how it was going to happen and so on. This is probably the most thorough, understanding, non judgemental lawyer I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I can't express enough my gratitude and appreciation for Matt and all his hard work on my case.. He may be handling a 100 cases at once however when he's with you on your case he is so great at making you feel as if your case is the only one he is working on... I definitely will recommend his services to all my friends and family if any of them ever need a great, hardworking, very professional, and most importantly very courteous lawyer... Thank you again Matt for saving me from the debt demons...

Sound, intelligent advice. Affordable Fee
Before finding Matt Dunaway from this review site, I had spoken to the office staff of several different bankruptcy attorney's. The information I was getting from the other offices was vague and not at all helpful in helping me know whether I actually needed an attorney. After reading Matt's website and review, I sent him a brief email. Within 20 minutes I had a detailed reply from him and within and hour after that had free telephone consultation with him. He listened carefully to me and we decided I should come in to discuss further. It turns out that my situation did not warrant filing bankruptcy but did require other legal attention, which I was able to hire Matt for and had a very positive outcome. The fee that Matt charged was very reasonable. His communication is clear and concise and his advise is good and sound. I trust Matt to steer me towards the path that is best for my situation and I highly recommend you do the same!

Debt Collection Help
I was referred to Matt to help with debt collection. He settled the debt in less than a week for significantly less than the original amount. Matt is very professional, responsive and affordable. I would highly recommend Matt's services for debt collection.

The best attorney in a terrible situatuon
Atty Dunaway proved to be the best attorney I would have ever dreamed of having during and after my bankruptcy case. My case was very complicated and stressful to say the least. He walked through every single moment with me and felt like my best friend rather than someone I hired to handle paperwork. I truly can say the Lord blessed me beyond belief when connecting me to Atty Dunaway. If ever I am asked who to contact for bankruptcy. Without hesitation I will say Atty Matt Dunaway. I wish I could give him a million stars. Thank you so So so so much Matt.

Review of bankruptcy attorney Matt Dunaway
Mr. Dunaway did a fantastic job handling my case. He showed patience and never seemed bothered by what I'm sure seemed like my endless number of questions. One particular issue with my case was the fate of a vehicle that I was trying to decide to keep or give up. Mr. Dunaway did a good job presenting my options and pointed me in a direction that would be best for me long term, rather than sending me down a path that would make he happy now but possibly create problems down the road. I would recommend Mr. Dunaway to anyone who had questions about or was facing a bankruptcy.

First time filer
Being young and crazy with my credit starting off in life, (as many of us are) I had so many questions and concerns with this being the first time I've ever had to file bankruptcy. However, Matt made me feel at ease. He was very knowledgeable, professional, and I was thoroughly satisfied with him. With this being the only time I would need his services, going forward I'll refer anyone to him!!! Truly awesome!!!
