- Matt was able to give me hope when I had none. He was 100% my advocate and in my corner. Without him fighting my battle there is no doubt in my mind that things would have ended up much worse for me. Matt did not sugar coat anything, he would give me best case and worst-case possibilities, and it turned out pretty much how he expected/explained it might. My outlook went from absolutely horrible, to absolutely manageable. Thank you, Matt, for helping me out!
- Matthew was outstanding at handling my case. He was there to answer every call, calm me down at every turn, and helped me every step of the way in overturning a blatantly false accusation against me. His prior military service gives him knowledge and experience no other civilian lawyer has, and will benefit any soldier, sailor, airman, or marine . . . . Do not be afraid to put this man on retainer, because be it 1 year or 10 years from now, you’ll wish you had.
- Mr. Jubelt has been an amazing person to work with. He communicated with me throughout the entire process and informed/included me on all the decision making. I hope that I won’t be in a situation to where I will need him again, but I definitely will request his services if need be. I would without a doubt work with him again. His knowledge, expertise, and communication are amazing and made me feel at ease through a difficult time
