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.

NOT GUILITY-My husband was facing 30 to 50 years in prison for unlawful use and possession of a weapon, combined with being charged as an armed habitual criminal. Through our painful, excruciating, and stressful journey, which lasted more than three (3) years we researched, hired and sought the assistance of five (5) prominent attorneys in Chicago and they all said it was not a winnable case, after taking our money, or they were not sure what the outcome would be based on the evidence. Their services for what they charged was subpar and after asking for astronomical amounts of money their customary practice, and the make-up of their DNA, is to be disrespectful to the families and individuals who in many cases put up their life savings, so their loved one could have stellar representation.  However, the representation is not stellar, it is substandard, shoddy, and poor, they don’t visit your loved one, they leave your loved one sitting in jail, and in the end, they just want to plead out the case. However, the sixth attorney was a Blessing and a Charm, and I am pleased, gratified and happy to write this recommendation about Attorney NENYE UCHE. He is smart, he works hard for his clients, he is competent and a master of his craft, skill, and trade. As a result, I would not hesitate to suggest, advise, and urge anyone to ascertain the legal services of Attorney NENYE UCHE. During my husband’s trial, Attorney NENYE UCHE from his opening to his closing, came prepared to slay, exterminate, and create beyond a reasonable doubt my husband’s innocence. The police found my husband and his friend asleep in his friend’s car. They had been out drinking and fell asleep outside our home. After approaching the car and banging on the window, the Police Officer asked my husband to exit the car, which he did with his hands up, and a cup in his hand. At some point words were exchanged, and the Officer pulled his gun, and my husband turned his back and ran out of fear, with his hands up the entire time, hollering, “please don’t shoot.” When my husband was arrested he was held for approximately 48 hours and charged with possession of a gun.  The Officer wrote in his report, that my husband exited the car with a cup in one hand and a gun in his other hand. During trial, Attorney NENYE UCHE, reminded me of O.J. Simpson’s lawyer, Attorney Johnny Cochran. He explained to the jury, that the only finger prints on the gun, were those of the arresting Officers. He researched and understood the protocol of what was supposed to take place when a weapon is discovered at the scene of a crime. The Officers did not follow the protocol. He captivated the jurors with his knowledge of the law and forensic examination. Because the gun had not been tested properly, Attorney NENYE UCHE put a sign on the gun that read, “TEST ME PLEASE”. He ingeniously articulated that the gun in question was not near my husband. Moreover, the Judge Sustained Attorney NENYE UCHE twenty (20) times more than he did the Prosecutors.  However, Attorney NENYE UCHE expertly, shrewdly, and skillfully explained to the Jury that they should stand their ground, and not be bullied and have the courage to do what was right because the State had not proved their case beyond a reasonable doubt. My husband is back with his family, we never gave up on him, and neither did Attorney NENYE UCHE. It was not all strawberries and cream with Attorney NENYE UCHE put when he showed up, he showed out and his only objective was to help us bring my husband home.   Attorney NENYE UCHE is an outstanding Criminal Defense Attorney-intelligent, personable, hard-working, respectful, and persuasive. We found his services more than satisfactory, so if you are in need of an exceptional lawyer, please call Attorney NENYE UCHE. T. Hayes

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

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..

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.
