"Top choice referral for the hard cases."


"Excellent lawyer. Listens to his clients and works for the best solution, whether by a compromise or trial. No fear of trying a case."


"I am giving Matt great recommendations because of his dedication to his clients and skill. After 35 years of law practice I was getting disgusted at the lawyers I saw coming out of school. Matt and a few others showed me dedicated attorneys are still out there."


"Matt Baldridge is an excellent attorney. I watch new attorneys and seldom do I see someone grow as fast as Matt in his skills. After nine (9) years he is a formidable attorney who I would rather have with me than against me. He is direct, honest, and has a fast mind. He is far, far above the "average" lawyer."


"Matt was extremely efficient, professional, and ethical throughout this entire process. It was a mentally and emotionally straining ordeal for me, and he was there to listen to me as if I were his only client. He never once made me feel like a burden or like my situation was not real or important. 
He was honest about situations and what the odds are. He always had my best interest. He's not afraid of a challenge, but he will never jump in without having facts calculated and making sure everything is in order.  
It was definitely a stressful case for him, as well, and my gratitude for him being my voice will never be able to be put into words. All I can say is I highly recommend him. Along this journey I found a quote, 'Pride focuses on WHO is right, humility focuses on WHAT is right.' Matthew is truly one of the most humble souls I've come across in life, which was refreshing. He kept a calm demeanor throughout, even when buttons were pushed. He will represent you well and leave your faith restored in the justice system and in humanity."
