Exceeded Expectations
Not five but TEN STARS! Matthew Barhoma and his staff are outstanding people! They are always available when you call and if by chance you have to leave a message, they are quick to respond within that same day. Matthew is very knowledgeable in all areas of criminal law. It's very impressive to have someone who knows what they are talking about when you ask questions and feel reassured with the answers given. Matthew explains all details of each options completely and makes sure everything is understood before continuing on to the next subject. He went above and beyond in finding different options with the possible resentencing of my loved one. Matthew is kind, understanding, & sympathetic to your needs for his services. Although he's still working our case, I'm more than confident in his abilities to make the resentencing happen in the near future.

Highly Recommended Matthew Barhoma Law Firm
We have been more than satisfied with Mr Barhoma thus far, from the very first phone call and our initial contact he has been nothing but professional and extremely informative. He is extremely prompt in his responses to emails and phone calls which is very important to us. Matthew has also shown us that he is as passionate about helping us with our case as we are. We have had some bad experiences with other attorneys so Mr. Barhoma is a breath of fresh air. Thus far in our case he has gone above and beyond in his work for us as well as keeping us informed every step of the way. His quality of work has been outstanding and I would highly recommend using Barhoma Law Firm. Our experience has been hands-down the best experience I've ever had with an attorney.
