Comment: I highly recommend Matt and Elyse. I found myself in a situation that I needed to have rectified. I was lucky to have found this firm and to have connected to Matt and Elyse. They are highly effective, personable, compassionate, and professional. They take the time to fully understand the situation and recommend appropriate actions. I had been trying to resolve my concern for months without success, when I discussed it with Matt and Elyse, they comforted me and told me their recommended plan and within a couple of weeks I had full and final resolution. They also kept me informed about every step of the process. If you need a superb and dedicated attorney, this is definitely the place you should call.

Comment: Attorney Matt Van Steenkiste helped our family through a very difficult time. Matt was there for us every step of the way with the most positive of possible outcomes. He was thorough, timely, effective and professional. His entire staff and his partner helped us through a difficult process. In the end we were successful with his great help. Most of all, Matt was kind and compassionate. Not only was he our wonderful lawyer, but we think of him now as part of our family!

Comment: If you’re looking for an efficient and professional lawyer, Brian Garmo is the one for you…When my family first contacted Brian it was about three weeks from my court date and we were extremely worried about our situation. I was facing a misdemeanor charge for my fake ID after it was mistakenly given to a police officer when I was in a car accident. Along with the misdemeanor, I also had two traffic tickets, that could’ve resulted in me having to restart my provisional license. Brian was very honest about potential outcomes, and discussed worst case scenario situations. It’s also important to note how knowledgeable he is about the law, and the court process, as he was extremely educated and answered all of our questions immediately over the phone. He also is fantastic at answering his emails, unlike other lawyers Brian responded to questions even after typical office hours within minutes.At my court date, Brian showed up very well prepared, and already knew the outcome of the case before it had begun in the courtroom. He was able to make a deal with the prosecutor and completely dismiss my misdemeanor charge, along with one of my traffic violations, and reduce the other violation to a civil infraction and a very small fee. In the end, I only paid $135 for violations I easily could’ve paid $2k+ for without Brian.Every penny you spend to pay for Brian is one less penny you’ll have to spend in legal fees and potential record damaging charges. I can not speak highly enough of Brian and my experience with him!

Comment: I contacted Brian for a legal matter. He was forthcoming with information, made me feel at ease, and was swift in taking care of the issue. Communication was perfect, and there was never a time that I was unable to speak to him or get a call back in a timely manner. Without a doubt, I would recommend Brian to anyone looking for legal assistance.

Comment: Attorney Steenkiste is the man. He took on my name change case, and got it done in about 2 months time. If I had done it solo, Id probably have made a mistake which cost me about a year. I highly recommend him if youre transgender and overwhelmed by the name change process.

Comment: Mr. Garmo has been my go-to contact for any legal concerns. He has fought and won multiple tickets/cases for me. I have also referred many of my friends to him, and they have also received positive results. I will continue to refer family and friends to Mr. Garmo for any future concerns. Mr. Garmo is trustworthy, knowledgeable, communicates well, and is always willing to listen. If the case is not in his realm, he will refer you to a trusted colleague (can speak to this from personal experience). I give Mr. Garmos office my highest recommendation without reservation!

Comment: Hello Peeps,(100% True) Please spare aside two minutes to read my review. I promise, it would be worth reading for folks who will ever go through divorce related issues.I was a person who lost almost his whole life (immigration status, financial assets, family and a minor). Incident happened when I went overseas to visit my family. From there, I contacted more than one dozen Divorce+Criminal lawyers but no other lawyer treated me in a way as Matt Van Steenkiste and “Elyse Victor” did and deeply showed interest in my case. This was my first ever interaction with lawyers in US. I personally met with Matt and Elyse on the very first day I returned back to US and immediately hired him. My divorce case, PPOs, criminal investigation cases all ran in Wayne and Washtenaw county for almost two and half months and this man handled my case in a very professional manner. Matt and Elyse are great human beings I have ever met with. When not even a single person in US was with me, they were the guys who stood with me and helped me alot emotionally, morally, professionally in every aspect even though we were strangers and no one referred me to him. My cases ended at reconciliation for the sake of a minor. Matt did not charge me ridiculous amount of money as other lawyers do now a days.Anyhow, Ill always be very greatful to Matt and Elyse and their staff members throughout my life. I would highly recommend Garmo & Kiste law firm if you guys are or about to deal with Divorce or Criminal cases in Oakland, Wayne or Washtenaw counties. Thank you very much Garmo & Kiste and GOD bless you all guys.

Comment: Highly recommend this law firm. Matt and his staff are top notch. I had a few collections problems and Matt handled them with dignity and without judgment and extremely professional. He was able to get me more than I expected in results. He is very knowledgeable and just cannot say enough about his firm. All the staff was extremely polite and courteous and great with communication. You never had to wonder where you are within the process as they always keeped you abreast of what has transpired. Cannot say enough about them. I wish I would found them back 2017 when this all first started

Comment: In August 2022, I contacted Attny. Brian Garmo to take my sons case for driving without his license physically on his person, forgetting to turn his lights on and having a broken BB gun in his car while it was being driven. I had never spoken to an attorney nor had my son been in any trouble until now. Brian has been a God send. He explained everything that would happen and spent a great deal of time explaining the legal aspect of what was happening as well as several possible outcomes. We waited from August until early December 2022 before my son appeared in court. My son and I were both scared that he would end up having to go to jail. The charges were dismissed. Thank GOD and thank Brian Garmo. I highly recommend Attny Brian Garmo. He helped my son out of a bad situation and we are so thankful for his assistance. Bless you Brian.

Comment: I had a previous ticket that I thought I would be able to explain the judge why I did what I did. I thought any reasonable person would be sympathetic and understanding knowing why. That did not happen, I was hit with the full force of my ticket and swore I would never step in a court without an attorney present.The next time I was pulled over the officer saw my previous ticket and tacked on everything he could think of. Brad Benedetto got my reduced ticket reduced from 4 points to 0 and will forever have my business.Thank you Brad.

Comment: After speaking with several attorneys regarding my custody situation, I knew after only a few minutes Brian was the right person for me. He always kept the best interest of my child top of mind and did not let me go into an emotional spiral when negotiations became frustrating. With everything said and done, thanks to Brian, my ex and I agreed on terms and I was able to obtain everything that was most important to me. It truly is what is best for my son. I cannot thank Brian enough for his assistance and support.

Comment: June 2021, I ended up in a bit of trouble for a hit and run. When I received the ticket in the mail, I was facing 3 misdemeanors and 2 civil infractions. I was getting married in October with a honeymoon planned right after, so obviously I was in a panic, assuming I was going to be locked up before my wedding.I reached out to Matt after I received the ticket, and over the last last 6 months, he has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He was able to construct a game plan for my case, as well as communicate with the court to get some dates moved around so I could still enjoy my wedding and honeymoon.Having no priors on my record, Matt was able to work with the court in turning my 3 misdemeanors and 2 civil infractions, into 1 non-abstract misdemeanor. No jail time, no probation, 0 points on driving record. I received a small fine and a driver’s safety class to be completed. Go with Garmo and Kiste. They do a fantastic job. Thanks Matt!

Comment: I have been working with Matt Van Steenkiste at Garmo & Kiste, PLC for about 8 years now. I cant describe how much help he has been over the years. I was going through a divorce and custody agreement when I first met matt. Matt has helped me fight for what was right from the start and never letting me down. I have been to court numerous times over the years and Matt is always there fighting for me and helping me. He has been awesome and I have recommended family and friends to him also, who he has also helped. Matt always goes above and beyond by taking time to sit down and discuss the motion or problem going on to checking in with you after the fact to see how things are going and to touch base. He is the best lawyer I could ever recommend to someone and I will always continue to reach out to Matt for help.

Comment: When I needed legal help, I turned to Garmo & Kiste, PLC. I worked with Matt Van Steenkiste. He was beyond helpful and caring through the whole process. He helped me fight a false PPO that was filed against me. He took a lot of time out of his schedule to help me prepare for this case, looking at it from every angle. Matt was there for me from the time I was served to showing up in court. He stood next to me in court and fought for me better than anyone else would have. Matt won the case and the PPO was dropped. I am beyond thankful for him and all of his help and support he provided for me during this hard time. I would recommend Matt and his team to anyone and everyone!

Comment: After contacting multiple attorneys offices who never responded to me nor got back with me I reached out to this office. They answered the phone and immediately put me in touch with Brian Garmo. I had a court appearance the next day and he told me all the possible outcomes and what I could be potentially facing. He had three misdemeanor accounts and one traffic violation reduced down to a simple double parking. I am actually getting money back from the court system! I will be using Brian for any and all legal issues in the future. If I could give them more than five stars I would.

Comment: I hired attorney Brian Garmo for last-minute legal representation. Brian did everything that I could have asked for in regards of handling my case and keeping me stress free during the process. I actually contacted him just a few days before court (risky and not recommended), and he still put in his full effort into my case and got me the best possible outcome. Brian is an utmost professional, and his services were greatly appreciated.

Comment: Matt came highly recommended and I am glad to have him represent me. He is knowledgeable, professional, responsive (the same day or next day) and fair. He is not aggressive and he is always the voice of reason to help us through the case.He is willing to work with everyone and listen to all opinions. He shows respect and he provides many options. He will take time to explain and does not rush through important things.He asked critical questions, focus on what I want and what are important to the family, and he was able to achieve them for us. He overcomes many challenges in a relatively short period of time. My children and I are thankful for the outcome and all his assistance. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Comment: Matthew Van Steenkiste is truly a rockstar! After overhearing my mom and her friend talk about my hardships of trying to take care of my younger/dumber selfs mess, Matthew immediately went out of his way to get in contact with me to help remedy the situation. His swift action allowed us to resolve the situation in a matter of days instead of months! I was terrified of taking care of this matter, Matthew made me feel calm and that I was in good hands. His care and compassion for his clients and work really shines through. I would highly recommend Matthew to anybody seeking a lawyer! Thanks again Matthew!!!!

Comment: Matt was my divorce lawyer, hired him 10/3/2019. I had never been divorced before and had no idea what to expect. Matt was always kind and explained, in depth, the divorce proceedings of what I was to expect each time we went to court etc. From day one, he hit the ground running on my behalf. Matts integrity speaks for itself. All the hard work Matt executed on my case rendered positive results for me, in fact, exactly what I wanted. Whenever I reached out with a question, Matt was prompt to respond (typically within 24 hrs or less) and always in a professional, knowledgeable manner. I am grateful I was able to find Matt to represent me that heartbreaking day, the day I decided to move forward with a divorce. Ill never forget it, I showed up to Matts office, just a complete mess, crying, not knowing what was to come and he assured me all would work out and it did, he held my hand the whole way. If you ever need a divorce lawyer, Matts your man. I will always be grateful for all of Matts efforts. Matts top shelf in my book :)

Comment: Found this firm through google, and could not be happier with my choice! Brian Garmo did a great job of putting my mind at ease regarding any stress I might have had going into my sentencing. Every other attorney I spoke to couldnt really answer any questions I had and made me even more nervous about going forward, and they were all way too far above what I could afford. Brian was ready and willing to answer any questions, and was always very prompt about returning any phone calls or emails I may have sent his way. Could not be happier, or more thankful that I found him, and ultimately could not be more pleased with the outcome through all of this. 10/10 highly recommend this firm and especially Brian!

Comment: I would definitely recommend Garmo & Kiste, Matt is a great attorney, he was my husbands attorney and it was a nasty divorce but in the end he helped my husband prevail. Hes always calls back when he cant answer right away (he does have other clients) and if he cant be in the office he has his partner help out. Matt is a down to earth man and its nice to know that the person you are trusting you life to lives just like you do. I was reading the reviews on this attorneys office and seen some guy with no name say they are not a good office to deal with thats total bull he must have mixed them up with another company because everything he said was a lie. Hope this review helps you make your decision I know the other reviews helped myself and my husband.

Comment: I would like to give thanks to the firm for the hard work and dedication provided in my particular case. Brian Garmo is my primary attorney/ legal counsel. The bad decisions I made had me facing Life in State Prison. Evidence as well as a statement from my Co-defendant was obtained through the Oakland County Sheriffs Dept. Prison time was going to be the inevitable. Mr. Garmo studied my particular case and took every step carefully thought through addressed it with brilliant perseverance. Brian communicating with me frequently. There was a legal meeting that was very necessary pertaining to my case, this meeting could not be rescheduled nor missed for that matter and the given day fell on his sons Birthday. Brian was at the meeting as promised. He still was able to give his son a great Birthday for those inquiring minds. I am telling you first hand. Brian will do everything to assist you regarding the Best Results. Dont wait, dont hesitate to reach out to him or his partner Matt. I hope this helps your decision. Thank you Brian and God Bless.

Comment: If you are on the fence about picking an attorney search no further. I absolutely love this law firm. I had initially gone with one law firm which was a total disaster. Horrible is an underestimate. They made a mess of things and never kept me informed. I could not put my future in their hands, they clearly did not care about the dire consequences to me. I finally decided to search for an attorney that yielded results. I found Garmo and Kiste. I met Matt and I liked that he was among the best in his class. Clients had good things to say about him and Brian. Picking this firm was a great choice during such a difficult time. They explained everything to me! There were no surprises. Matt was realistic, he never tried to blindly bill me more. Most importantly, he was a genuine advocate. I genuinely felt that he wanted what was best for me and not his pocket book. He literally saved the day. I have stuck with Garmo and Kiste ever since and have used them for a number of different things. I am so blessed I found them. Thank you Garmo and Kiste for being genuine advocates. Youre one a kind.

Matt was on top of everything from the beginning and kept me informed and answered all my questions throughout the process. He even went above and beyond when the other parties attorney was not as reactionary as they shouldve been. Matt met me prior and after our referee meeting and made sure I understood everything. Matt gave me a price for my divorce and he held to it and is a man of his word. He produced additional documents that he didnt have to do or couldve charged me for. Im extremely pleased that I chose Matt and would highly recommend anyone, either gender to use Matt and his firm.

Comment: Matt has been WONDERFUL. He helped me and my family every step of the way with our legal woes. From the very first day, Matt was available FIRST THING IN THE MORNING, and has been accessible anytime weve needed him. He is very diligent and has a strongly helpful nature. Matt is a lighthearted, easygoing guy. Even though we met only after retaining him to help us legally, Matt has become like a friend who happens to be a GREAT LAWYER. He has a LOT of knowledge, a TON of experience, and knows EXACTLY when to be aggressive and when to be calm and patient. Matt also knows a lot of people throughout many different jurisdictions in Metro Detroit, and that really came in handy! Im so glad we got to meet Matt, not only because we needed his legal help and representation, but because hes a great person to bounce ideas off of, without feeling judged, and has a CALMING demeanor (also a KEY trait when we were SUPER STRESSED about legal issues that we had no idea how to handle).Since the beginning Matt has kept us INFORMED and well abreast of every single step and possibility in our legal journey. He FOUGHT HARD for us and has been a STAND UP guy the entire time, not just with me and my family, but also with every person Ive seen him interact with at the court and police stations.We would retain Matt in a heartbeat if we ever needed a lawyer, and we are GREATLY CONFIDENT that Matt would help us however he possibly could. When Matt didnt know the answer to a possible problem (this only happened once), without being prideful or arrogant, he knew exactly which lawyer-peer to reach out to in order to get us an answer.Matt is SIMPLY THE BEST! Thank you for everything!

Comment: I worked with Matt Van Steenkiste to redo my Child Custody agreement. I told Matt the changes I wanted made. Matt patiently and carefully explained the process to me so I understood everything. Matt then confidently guided me through the process.In the beginning, I worried because the other side had more resources of time and money to work with than I did. Also, the case had to be resolved in another county. Furthermore, there were cultural differences involved.Matt was always diligently looking out for me and assuring that we could do this. Thanks to Matt’s legal expertise, skill with people and confidence, I got the agreement I wanted in a reasonable time frame and within the agreed upon budget.I would go to Matt again for any Legal issues.

I can’t even explain how grateful I am for his guidance at this point in my life.Thank you Brain!Michael

Comment: I Hired Attorney Matthew R. Van Steenkiste on a troubling legal situation which I was unprepared for. I was worried that I would lose everything that I had worked for but after speaking with Matthew and His Partner Brian, they made me feel much more comfortable. I knew I was not their only client yet I still felt like I was given specialized attention. Matthew called me many times in the months that I dealt with my legal issues to not only keep me in the loop but to check up on me to make sure I was keeping my head high. Matthew was very knowledgeable and informed me of what my expectations should be but was committed to providing me the best outcome I could have. All I can say is that I made the best choice by Hiring Attorney Matthew R. Van SteenKiste because I did receive the best possible outcome I could have asked for. If anyone is having any legal issues Matthew Van Steenkiste or Brian Garmo should be the first choice you make.

Throughout the entire legal process Matt was always open and honest about my case and the potential outcomes. Although the initial outcome was not what I had hoped for he did prepare me for the worst case scenario should it happen. After the judgment he went above and beyond to better the outcome and achieved a settlement agreement that worked for me. I am very happy with the service provided by Matt, his communication with me was consistent and always on time. He will be my go-to guy should I or anyone close to me encounter another legal situation.

Comment: Having Matt Van Steenkiste (Kiste) as my lawyer was the best possible thing that came out of an unfortunate experience with a neighbor who filed a fraudulent PPO against me. I was very fortunate to find him and I cant tell you how at ease I felt being in Matts capable hands. He is very easy to talk to and be with and gave me a great feeling of peace that the outcome would be in my favor. He even helped my daughter get a PPO against this same neighbor on his own. For which I will be eternally grateful. If you need legal help I would contact Garmo & Kiste before going any where else. You will not regret it.Ed Palermo

Comment: I had an exceptional experience with Matt Van Steenkiste and the law offices of Garmo & Kiste. The office atmosphere is very professional(you are greeted quickly and offered a drink). Matt is a personable guy and showed great patience and understanding with my case(in which he was successful). I highly recommend having Matt and his firm represent anyone needing real legal expertise. I hope I never have the need for a lawyer again, but if I do, Ill be calling Mr. Van Steenkiste.

Comment: Ive had to use Matts services twice now. A couple years ago my partner had used 3 different lawyers for his 4 probation violations. All 3 of them got him into more trouble. He was facing jail time and I insisted we try Matt. Not only did Matt keep him out of jail, he also got his probation dropped. Here we are a couple years later & I needed a lawyer. Of course I called Matt. He got my case dismissed & kept me from going to jail. Im certain of this...if you need a lawyer, CALL MATT VANSTEENKISTE. Hell not only make you feel comfortable, hell work your case like it was his own. I cant say enough positive things about him. A million star review & infinite thanks. Do yourself a favor and call him A.S.A.P.

Comment: I found Matt Van Steenkiste online and hired him for my case. He was very understanding and professional allowing me to contact him any time I needed to. At no time did I feel pressured or overcharged (he did not add any extra charges). He presented me with realistic options that aided me in making the right choices to rectify my situation. He defended me fiercely when needed and I was certainly grateful for his expertise. I have already recommended Matt to a friend.

Comment: Brian Garmo represented me in Troy recently and I was very satisfied. Brian counselled me on the options before the Judge in my case and laid out his plan of action. His communication with me was clear and thorough. On the day of the trial, Brain Garmo knocked it out of the park. The principal misdemeanor charge was completely dismissed and my other civil infraction was reduced to a zero point offense. I never set foot in the courtroom! If you want a knowledgeable and tenacious lawyer with all of the right legal connections, I highly recommend you give Brian a call.

Comment: Brian Garmo…..What to say about Brian! He is not even a great lawyer but, he is an awesome magician who just does some type of magic there in court and everything will come to him in his favor.What he has done for me, it’s unbelievable. He handles his all the cases in a very professional manner and he is very soft talking.Because of his overall effort, all my charges were dismissed simply and for this, I think, a single word “THANK” will not be enough.But as we don’t have much words to say Thanks. I would like to say“Thanks a lot Brian to make me proud that you were my lawyer and to make my life on track….”Please keep it up with your awesome services! You have a very great future!!For others, I would highly recommend Brian. You can have a blindly trust on Brian to make a good decision, what I did!Saurabh Gupta

Comment: I found Matt VanSteenkiste by chance online, without a referral, to work on a case for me. Being that Matt was in a different city than I was and across the state, I was at first a little leery as I was going in blind. I was pleased to find that Matt was very professional. I felt he looked out for my best interest and I didnt at any time feel that he was pressuring me in any direction; he simply presented me with my options, explaining each option in very understandable terms. He remained extremely responsive to my requests and questions and kept me informed every step of the way. I found his attorney rates to be reasonable. I would recommend Matt to anyone finding themselves in need of an attorney.

Comment: In 2014, I filed for divorce from my husband of 20 yrs. I was scared and unsure about everything. I had 2 teenage boys that I was very concerned about and no idea of where to begin. Matthew settled my nerves and my fears and gave me the strength and courage to start a new life on my own. He is very professional, respectful and supportive. He has a talent of understanding people; he is very knowledgeable about his professions. Not only he fights hard for me, he also personally cares about my well being. Matthew stays in contact and doesnt over bill and use time unnecessarily. With his effort, my divorce process went very smoothly, I truly appreciate all his efforts and supports. He must be one of the best lawyers in Michigan. He will be the first lawyer I call if and when I am in need.

Comment: For my case in particular, I couldnt have asked for a better attorney service than Garmo & Kiste. Matt represented me from this firm and he was fantastic. He made me feel relaxed and comfortable about my circumstances and he walked me through exactly what i needed to do because it was my first case ever, so naturally i was nervous about the outcome. However, his confident approach took all my doubt and skepticism away and i was able to cooperate appropriately with the procedure. Select the Garmo & Kiste firm if you want confident and quality results to help you in your next court case. If I ever have a court case again, Im positive that I can turn to this firm and they will give reasonable and positive options to win my case. Thanks again Matt!

Comment: In October of 2012, I reached out to Matthew Van Steenkiste and presented him with a seemingly impossible case for him to win. From the very start, he was upfront and honest. Unlike other attorneys, Matt didnt want to take advantage of my situation just to earn a buck. He did everything in his power, left no stone unturned, and presented me with all possible outcomes upfront.The most important factor in my situation was my initial case was 14 years old. When our day in court came, we stood in front of one of the toughest judges in Oakland County. None of these things mattered to Matt. He was determined to make sure justice prevailed and I got the best outcome any client could hope for. On April 23, 2014 Victory was Surely ours!!!I couldnt have chosen a better attorney! When I made the decision to let Garmo & Kiste represent me, I lived in Georgia, and had never met either of them. It was all because I read several Great reviews online about their work ethic and integrity (a nudge from the Man Upstairs finalized my decision).Anyone looking for PHENOMENAL, OUTSTANDING, ABOVE THE BAR representation would do themselves a GREAT injustice if they didnt choose Garmo & Kiste.Just in case youre wondering if Im a real client. Ask Matthew Van Steenkiste about his encounter with HYTA. He can give you all the details :-)Thank you guys! My family and I are eternally grateful for your services!!!

Comment: I highly recommend Brian Garmo to anyone needing legal assistance.Twice I have used him to help me with problems with a commercial lease dispute and both times I was able to settle things in my favor. He is easy to work with and always honest about what he thinks is the best thing to say and do. Its not easy for me to sit and wait when things are hitting the fan but Brian told me to just let it play out. Not easy to do that when you have a hysterical client! He did more than I asked for and stayed in there till the very end to make sure I was taken care of. What more could you ask for?

Comment: There is nothing that I could say that would express the professionalism and dedication by this law firm. Although we found the firm online, some co workers have also done some business with them and were HIGHLY satisfied. There is definitely something with the degrees of separation. If I need any other law services, I will use and refer anyone that I know to the office as well. Continue to stand out as a leading team in the industry Brian, Matt, Stephanie and Maggie.Thanks again.Michelle B.

Comment: I cannot say enough great things about this group, particularly Matt. I was in a position where I had no idea what to do or what to expect, and from day one, Matt made sure that everything was laid out on the table. He told it like it was; no sugar-coating or unrealistic expections, which was something that I really appreciated. There was never a moment where I felt like I was unsure or needed to question his approach to my case. This ordeal ended up being so much better than I could have ever expected because Matt represented me. I have complete confidence in his expertise and will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who needs legal assistance.

Brian was excellent in assisting me with settling the lawsuit. He was exceptional in his punctuality, personal skills, and professionalism. I was astonished with his resourcefulness and connections to other professionals within this field, which ultimately helped to settle my case. I would highly recommend Brian Garmo and his law firm...

Brian was honest and upftont explaining the details/complications of my case. After speaking to a few other firms that were not as professional or honest, it was clear that I needed to retain Garmo and Kiste.I could not be happier with my decision to retain Garmo and Kiste and I will definitely keep them on file for any future legal needs! Brian went to court for me, saving me from taking off work, and got my fine reduced and no points on my license!If you need legal help, give these guys a call!

Comment: Brian Garmo recently represented me in a legal matter. He was friendly, easy to approach and didn’t judge me. He demonstrated a vast knowledge of the court system and handled my case with the utmost professionalism. He thoroughly explained the potential consequences and my choices so that I could make informed decisions. He also wrote a detailed memorandum for the judge to review, which I believe to be a key factor in the positive outcome of my case. I would definitely use him in the future and recommend his Garmo & Kiste, PLC to others.

Comment: I had a criminal case in Oakland County that Matt helped me through (and we all know Oakland County is not the best place to have a criminal case). He was prompt to get back to me when I called, even though he usually answered the phone. His work in the courtroom was outstanding, the fees were reasonable, and he didnt miss a beat with filing memorandums that were needed for my case. He was very familiar with the judges, the prosecutors, and the girls behind the glass at the courthouse (which made me feel much better that everything that could be done actually got done). Matt even took the time to talk to someone he knew at the family court in Macomb County for me as I needed information about my family court case (and he didnt charge me extra). Although, I expect I will never need him again with a criminal case in any County, I would hire him again in a heart beat. I also wouldnt hesitate to recommend Matt to my close friends and family--which is why I wrote this review. If someone needs an attorney for a criminal case (or any legal matter) in Oakland County or Macomb County the first stop should be to these guys. I couldnt be more satisfied with Matt as my attorney. Thanks a bunch. I really appreciate all of your hard work!
