Getting a DUI has been one of the single most horrifying things to have ever happened to me. Choosing Matt as my lawyer has to be one of my better life decisions. He came to me highly recommended by multiple people and Matt lived up to everything and then some. Considering what a cluster the legal system is, he walked me through every step and was able to clarify all. When we first met, Matt said I could contact him with any questions I may have. I took him up on that and for months barraged him almost daily with questions, concerns or thoughts. Not only does he get back to me quickly, but his replies have always been well-thought and considerate. I don’t particularly know a lot about lawyers, but in the last few months have watched a few in their working environments. Having Matt by my side in court instilled inside me a great deal of crucial confidence. I was able to get through everything I needed to get through knowing he was hard at work helping me. Matt did everything and then some defending me. He turned an awful situation into one I can very soon start to put behind me. Knauss is truly suited for what he does, a master at his craft. He is professional, upfront and doesn’t provide any confusing fluff. They don’t make words to describe my appreciation for what Matt and his staff have done for me.
