A Transparent, Client-Centred Approach

Mat adopts a policy of openness and honesty with his clients, keeping them thoroughly informed about their case as it progresses. He understands the unique complexities of every situation and prioritizes gaining a comprehensive understanding of the context before formulating a resolution strategy.

Comprehensive Family Law Expertise 

His practice encompasses all aspects of family law, including but not limited to divorce, child custody and guardianship, parenting issues, spousal and child support, matrimonial property division, prenuptial and cohabitation agreements, unjust enrichment, child protection, restraining orders, and adoptions.

As a client-focused family lawyer, Mat tirelessly works towards obtaining optimal results in every circumstance.
