Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

Michael and his staff are simply the best. I was trying to settle my mother-in-law's final expenses which included a penalty with the IRS. They quickly and efficiently dealt with it for me. Michael also responded to my initial email on the weekend encouraging me to come in and see him early the next week. Thank you doesn't seem like enough for me to say!

I went to Matt in a major time of crisis for me not really knowing at all how the process works or what was in store. He was clear from the beginning on what all our options were, what the next steps were to take, and how to navigate the process. Dealing with a bit of a language barrier was generally not an issue as everything was explained to us very clearly. He is very knowledgeable about both sides of the law as he previously was a prosecutor; he has excellent connections in the system. We retained Matt for a very doable price, and he got us the absolute best possible outcome in the case - complete dismissal. Overall our situation was rather complex and Matt did fantastic work for us, we could not be more satisfied with the results. I would highly recommend anyone in need of criminal defense to call him first.
