Mr. Matsas is by far the kindest, most compassionate, friendly lawyer I have ever worked with. He is a very caring person who puts your legal needs before anything else. He legitimately wants you to be reassured and know that he is on your side, fighting for you. And I always felt like I was in the best of hands in all of my legal situations. I know that in times such as those when you need legal representation it can be overwhelming and scary but Mr. Matsas really put me at ease and reassured me through every worry. I can honestly not say enough good things about this man and his team. I have had other lawyers treat me like a paycheck (for lack of a better word) but I never ever felt like that with Mr. Matsas and his associates. I'm extremely lucky to have had him on my side and I would recommend him to absolutely anyone who is in need of a kind, genuinely good hearted, very talented lawyer.

Attorney Nenye E. Uche... Wow!!! He is truly the best above the rest. A relative was facing 40 years for an alleged aggravated sexual assault charge. He had first hired another attorney who told him the case seems a difficult one to win, because he saw the victim crying on her video recorded testimony. Out of fear that this attorney didn't have what it takes, we were referred to Attorney Uche. I tell you, he is never afraid of a challenge. He doesn't seek to settle - only to win. He accepted our case and 8 months later today, at precisely 6:22pm, our relative left the court room acquitted of all charges. Thanks you Attorney Uche!!! I can truly say without you my relative would have been locked up today for 40 years. Thank you, thank you, thank you... If you're looking for a veeryyy good criminal defense attorney Attorney Uche is your guy!

We called around for attorneys and was given the brush off, no one wanted to discuss my husbands case. Bart Beals has taken a special interest and walked us through every step of the way of a complicated legal system. There should be more attorneys like him.

I found Alex online and was very impressed with his credentials. (former prosecutor/ current criminal defense lawyer) I had a few different cases that I needed expert representation for. From the start, Alex was very understanding and clearly communicated costs and potential outcomes without over promising. In the end, he far over delivered on my expectations and truly did an amazing job - way better than I had hoped. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone who is in need of legal counsel. He will deliver the best possible scenario at the most affordable costs..

Matt is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of criminal law. He's a well established lawyer within the system and highly respected by other lawyers. Although my outcome wasn't what I wanted (discovery revealed something we couldn't fight), I avoided harsher fines and punishments thanks to Matt. I highly recommend Matt for any criminal matters.

About

The Criminal Defense League is a law firm committed to providing “equal justice under the law.” In this country, far too many defendants are at an immediate disadvantage because of the financial inability to hire quality, private council. In criminal cases, legal assistance is a constitutional right but if you cannot afford your own attorney your life may rest in the hands of an overworked or inexperienced public defender. We believe we are closing “Justice Gap” by making expert legal defense, affordable. We offer reduced fees and payments plans and do our best to work with the client financially.
