"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." Divorce Law Client

Let's face it.  Life is not always beaches, bicycles and birthday balloons.  And, most of the time, when someone looks to hire an attorney, they are looking for someone who can win...and who does what it takes to win.  And when Matt represents you, he will aggressively represent your interests to give you the best possible chance of winning.

If you are looking for an attorney who takes a "wait and see" approach, then Matt is not the attorney for you. For most people, there is nothing more important in their life than family related interests.  And, the only way to effectively protect those interests, is with smart, aggressive and proactive legal representation.  

" When you first answered my call, you became our new adopted baby's guardian angel.  We would not be celebrating her adoption today without you.  Thank you for giving us our daughter.  We will forever remember and be so grateful."

Proud New Parents

"Matt's family law clients can count on strong advocacy and attention to detail, coupled with an emphasis on amicable resolution through negotiation. His approach is calm and deliberate in a practice area full of conflict." Local Family Law Attorney

While most domestic conflicts are the most difficult to manage and work through, Matt understands that minimizing emotional turmoil is important for the well being of the family at large.  So, Matt tries to find a collaborative solution to domestic disputes whenever possible.  Especially when children are involved.  However, if collaboration doesn't produce favorable results, Matt will use the latest and most effective discovery methods, motion practice techniques and trial experience to ensure that your family and financial interests are protected.

Here's What Others Say About Matt's Family Law Practice . . . 


Making The Attorney-Client Relationship Personal Again



When Life Hands You Lemons, Hire A Great Attorney

"Matt was hired towards the end of a custody battle I had been fighting for almost a year. With the amount of time and amount of information he had during our proceeding, I was impressed. What I liked most, is that he was very honest about my chances due to the GAL's recommendation, regardless of how one sided it was. He listened to me and voiced his concerns as opposed to just listening and saying we will win. He was honest, and he is a good man outside of a courtroom, which in my opinion always says a lot about how an attorney practices and handles himself in a courtroom. Overall I have been very pleased with his representation." Family Law Client
