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.
Brandon Davis was the attorney who represented me and my case in traffic court. Through the entire process, he gave me pertinent and honest counsel. He responded immediately (within 2 hours) after I submitted a request through their website after 10pm on a weeknight. That alone was very impressive to me. Certainly I didn't expect it, but that type of responsiveness gave me the initial impression that this would be somebody who would be invested in my case. He advised that I ought to move quickly with my case and have it brought before a judge before my scheduled court date. I trusted any and all recommendations he made, and it worked out great. Brandon and I worked together through email and phone to give him a total understanding of my specific case, and for him to help advise me on all of the proper evidence and paperwork to bring with me for court. When I finally met him on my day in court, he was waiting for me, extremely professional, and gave me confidence that I had my best shot with him as my representation. He modestly chalks it up to a lucky break, but I hold him responsible for negotiating a situation where the prosecutor agreed to drop all 5 charges. Without Brandon's advice, I am sure it would not have been possible. I had hesitations about hiring an attorney for my case, but after thinking about it, deciding, and going through with it, I feel that it's the best money I have spent in YEARS. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
During the most challenging time in my life I was so blessed to find Attorney Andrew Gable. His level of professionalism, knowledge and responsiveness was beyond amazing. Attorney Gable represented my son as though he was his son and got justice for my son with an outcome that was great!!! If you need the best Criminal Defense Attorney, he's the best choice!!!
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.
Elizabeth was very professional and friendly. She thoroughly explained every step of the process to me so that I knew exactly what to expect. Her services are affordable and she definitely followed through; I would highly recommend her firm if you need legal help!
