5.0 out of 5 stars

One day you get a call and realize that everything that you thought you knew was over. In that moment, when the pit of your stomach is aching so badly because your terrified, nervous and completely unsure. Most attorneys will text, call, and represent but really how many help with those feelings. Matt and his team made no promises, they laid the facts out and they explained the entire process. Then he built a plan. From the day I reached out to Matt and his firm I knew I was going to succeed in the outcome. From the office staff, to him or his dad answering the phone at all hours just to put my mind at ease. Realistically I never felt alone. I cannot say enough about the Schimizzi Law Firm. Thank you all for everything
