Matt displays a willingness and ability to listen to the client. His understanding of the situation and realization of the best approach in
finding a fair and equitable solution is unmatched.

Matthew Norfolk applied more than his intelligence, knowledge, and experience to my case: he also demonstrated imagination and creativity in analyzing the circumstances and actions of the defendants to arrive at a very smart plan of action. His timing was always very good, he explained things well and kept me informed. But more than anything, he impressed me by really using his head! His assistant Mary McAllister was also excellent, by the way.

Matthew Norfolk has been legal counsel for our organization for several years and has served us well. Matthew understands the nature of our business and our fit in the community. Our only concern is, responses and communication to our needs or ongoing issues is sometimes delayed.

Matt provided thoughtful and well-targeted legal advice. He zealously advocated for my case and was always well prepared and available to me. He is a consummate professional and his fees are honest and reasonable. I have complete confidence in his abilities and will continue to use his services in the future.

Matt, was in my corner from the start & went above and beyond to win my case.

Matt represents clients in family law cases, but from my perspective, this is obviously not his specialty and he would prefer to get them done with as little effort as possible. He is much more interested in high-profile corporate law and lawsuits where he can get his name in the paper.
