Hi, I'm Matthew.
I approach the practice of law with a focus on helping my clients understand an often complicated legal system. Working collaboratively allows me to anticipate my clients' needs, while also aiding my clients by providing them an informed view of all the potential dangers and rewards of each unique case. My primary practice areas are Divorce, Child Custody, Trusts & Wills and Bankruptcy. However, I also provide legal support for small businesses looking to incorporate, resolve disputes with employees or review potential contracts and business transactions.

- Q. My baby is nine months old his father sells drugs and prior convictions pwid and court ordered anger management domest
- A: Insufficient information to determine what the likely outcome will be. What you need to do is schedule a consultation with a local child custody lawyer to discuss every fact available. Custody decisions are made on single facts alone. The lawyer will have several questions for you to determine your likelihood of success and what type of visitation, if any, would be given.
- Q. I have a woman who was supposed to move in & there is no lease or any written agreement on anything.
- A: You should, under no circumstances, remove her property from the home until after going through proper eviction procedures. You should locate a landlord/tenant attorney in your local area to discuss what notices have to be given and what length of time you need to wait before eviction proceedings.
- Q. MY EX LIVING GIRLFRIEND MOVE OUT WITH MY SON NOW SHE WONT LET ME SEE HIM WITH OUT A CAUSE SHE IS NOT LEGAL IN THE US??
- A: You can hire a lawyer to file a custody petition with your local court before the child has been away for a significant period of time. Consult a lawyer soon.
- Q. Is a child support agreement signed and notorized binding?
- A: It will ultimately be up to the judge whether to enforce the agreement or not. If such a case is brought, immediately obtain a lawyer to represent you in this matter.
- Q. Is it a crime to threaten to burn someone’s personal property
- A: If you feel like you have been the victim of a severe threat (at any point), report it to the magistrate. They will be the one to decide whether the threat is sufficient enough to warrant further action.
- Q. I didn't do the proper paperwork to file a motion to quash a subpoena. At the hearing, the judge suggested a continuance
- A: That would largely depend on the judge, but most judges would allow you to cooperate with the opposing side if you decide to. Whether it is a good idea in your particular case is best discussed with a confidential consultation with a lawyer to determine the pros and cons associated with your course of action.
- Q. Will bank release detailed bank records to administrator of an estate?
- A: There are several situations in which the administrator can compel the production of bank records. There is insufficient information to determine the purpose of doing so, and whether it is allowed under the law. If you are concerned about this process, you should speak with a lawyer to discuss in more, confidential detail.
- Q. can a funeral director hold your loved one hostage for payment when you are paying on it
- A: There are certain limitations on how a funeral home may dispose of a body or handle the requests of the deceased's next of kin. If you feel you are being mislead or mistreated, you should speak with a local attorney as soon as possible to review the facts of your case in more detail and what steps can be taken next.
- Q. A friend has a daughter, his ex will keep his lil 1 away from him for dating other people when they arent together.
- A: Cohabitation is frowned upon for custody and visitation purposes. If father has a girlfriend, father should either marry girlfriend or not have her around the kids.
