“Matt is a bastion of chivalry. He handled my case with grace, personal attention, sympathy, diligence, professionalism, and knowledge. He was the first lawyer I called. I called a plethora of attorneys after him, and he was the one I came back to settle on because he demonstrated knowledge, a willingness to fight for me, and an ‘I don’t like to lose’ attitude while maintaining
professionalism. He’s a down-to-earth guy who will hear you out and attack the case to get you the best possible outcome. He won’t back down from a challenge and sets proper expectations. Don’t just listen to me, though; give his office a call. In life, nothing is guaranteed, just like in any case; however, he fights, and you’ll be glad you called him. Give this gentleman a shot. You’ll be glad you did!” –Rob
