Matthew is the best in the business. With over 20 years experience he has the skills necessary to fight and win. As an attorney myself I can say there are too many lawyers who advertise that they practice DUI but they have never tried a case before a jury. Matthew has the knowledge and the courage to fight a case all the way to jury trial and his success is unrivaled.
