Great guy, hard worker, quick to respond!
Matthew was an amazing choice. He worked hard and was on top of everything with my case. He was quick to reply to any needs or questions and went out of way even during odd hours to help me out. I will definitely be recommending him to any friends who might need his help.

DUI- 1st Offense
Matthew Haltzman was an absolute pleasure to work, with from the moment I called to inquire about his services until verdict was rendered. Despite all logic and reason to the contrary, Mr. Haltzman was able to save my license from being suspended at the DMV hearing and, without a doubt, got me the best possible outcome in my court case, one that would have had no chance at all had I tried going it alone. For me, one of the most important things Mr. Haltzman did was very honestly explain everything to me while he patiently and calmly guided me through the process and all the paperwork. As someone who has never been in trouble with the law before, this was all quite terrifying, but having a knowledgeable and kind professional who would respond to my emails or phone calls in no time was great for my mental health. Thanks to Matthew my future is not in jeopardy because of one mistake and, for me, that is priceless. I could not more highly recommend Mr. Haltzman to anyone seeking legal assistance; he is top-notch, as a lawyer and as a person.
