These Lawyers are VERY GOOD AT WHAT THEY DO. When you're going through something in YOUR LIFE this is the PLACE to come. Attorney Patrick T. Matthews has represented me a COUPLE TIMES AND I COULDN'T ASK FOR A BETTER RESULT!!!!
Attorney Matthews was a blessing. He handled a very difficult situation and resolved it in a short period of time. He is caring, responsive, and always returns calls. His entire office is responsive and proactive. I hold him in the highest regard.
My 18-year-old grandson was facing several felony convictions from a series of poor decisions; most from mental health problems. The state's only offer would have made the rest of his life extremely difficult: trying to find employment, school loans, and access to any federal programs for the rest of his life. Attorney Matthews, (who is not just an amazing lawyer is also an extremely caring person who gives his all to help his clients) managed to convince the DA to give him another chance, which includes getting the help he needs to keep him out of trouble and become a positive contributor to society and not another number at the prisons.
