Client Testimonials

"Matt Portella came recommended to me by a mutual friend in the judicial system. My case seemed hopeless, but thanks to Matt, it was resolved with a better outcome than I even thought possible. He practically worked a miracle. The judge made it a point to tell me “you better thank your attorney” for such a favorable ruling. When I was leaving court, two other people that were there stopped me on the way out to ask me for Matt’s contact information because they’d heard what the judge had said to me. Matt is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and dedicated - he is the lawyer that other lawyers recommend! I am unbelievably lucky and eternally grateful. Without a doubt, I will call Matt to represent myself and my family for any future matters. A thousand “thank you”s would not be enough."
