Over 15 years experience representing thousands of clients across three states, in cases ranging from misdemeanor drug possession to first degree murder
Matt has won numerous difficult jury trials (see below) and achieved many outright dismissals of serious offenses. He’s also aware that sometimes going to trial isn’t the best move, and prides himself in working hard to craft an appropriate pre-trial settlement when necessary.
