Matt was so helpful. Very down to earth and a straight shooter. My company struggled with a landlord that had been taking advantage of us financially for several years. The internationally recognized landlord we were fighting is a 700 million dollar company with a staff of lawyers. It was a true David vs. Goliath event. Matt took control of the situation and proved that what they were doing was not only on the border of fraudulence, he had them pay all cost for the suit. Matt is a great negotiator and won’t back down. We won the case with all expenses covered. To me, he proved that justice can prevail, without recognition of your financial status.

It is my privilege to recommend Matthew. If you are engaged in a complex litigation and need or appreciate having a responsive, reasonable lawyer advising you — Matthew is your man. I represented a large commercial bank in a real estate transaction which moved inexorably from DIL negotiations into a series of complicated and finicky bankruptcy filings. Matthew kept us informed, provided information regarding the delicate nuances of the process and transaction, and helped us to achieve our remedies.

Matt Ferguson represented my sister and me in a very sensitive family matter, which was highly charged with emotion for us. Our dealings with him were all quite positive…he was always very professional, clear-thinking, fair, and knowledgeable, guiding us through the issues that faced us…the two most apparent ones being acts of theft and dishonesty by a sibling. Matt navigated through a tangled web of deceit that had been created by our sibling over a number of years, effectively “enlightened” the attorney for our sibling, and structured a very fair settlement for us. This was done within a reasonable period of time. Without hesitation, I would recommend Matthew Ferguson to anyone, for any matter.

I have used Matt Ferguson on two occasions and would do so again if the need arose. He always made the time for me when I needed him and he placed my best interest first and foremost. Matt is the perfect combination of sensible, reasonable and a pit bull when need be. He is efficient and his billing is fair. I highly recommend him.

Matt was retained by our company to both defend its shareholders and prosecute a disgruntled partner. We were guided through a process designed to reach an amicable resolution to the issues faced by both sides. Unfortunately the disagreement went to court with Matt doing an exceptional job of preparing the shareholders for trial. Matt’s skills in the courtroom cannot be overstated. His preparation and thoroughness was excellent. Throughout the entire process Matt kept us well informed, providing us with excellent counseling. We prevailed in court with Matt demonstrating a clear superiority over the opposing attorney.

Matt is one of the most competent and thorough attorneys I have ever worked with. His research of case law is second to none and when you go into any type of legal proceedings with him you are confident he is prepared and has your back.

Matt Ferguson has represented me and my firm(s) on small to large matters. None of these matters have ended up in court and that is a complete testament to his knowledge and commitment to his client. His preparation, guidance, and professionalism gave me the confidence and comfort level that we were always well prepared for any legal matter. I highly recommend Matt for anyone!
