I met Mr. work at a coffee shop and no idea he was an attorney. We would go to the same shop every morning bright and early and there was something about his personality that I always admired. He was always interested in other’s well-being. Fast forward three years and I needed my coffee buddy in a very heated custody battle. The same concern for others that he showed during our mornings at the coffee shop was just as a parent during the proceedings. I am very grateful to Mr. Work and his colleagues.

I was recently charged with a DUI and retained Mathew Work. They say a good lawyer makes all the difference, they do. Before meeting with Mathew, I met with one of the billboard-type attorneys. The entire meeting was the [other] attorney bragging about all the people he knew and how he would “walk me” through the process. Basically, how he was going to help me get convicted. Mathew, on the other hand, explained the entire process of a DUI conviction, what the DA would need and what he would attack. He did just that, three days later, all charges were DROPPED! He. Is. The. Real. DEAL!

Matthew and Rebeca were aggressive and dedicated to my case from the first day I retained them. Going through divorce or any family law matter can be very difficult but, it helps to know you have people that know the process and can get you fair results.

If you are in Reno looking for a family law attorney, seriously consider Matthew. He is honest and hard-working. He always responded to my emails personally and I really felt like I had a teammate more than attorney.

Matthew, Rebecca and Lauren were a dynamite trio. I was up to speed with the process of my divorce at every step and in the end I got a fair and hard-fought victory. I would highly recommend this legal team to anyone going through a divorce or serious legal matter. They’re not cheap but you get what you pay for.

I can’t thank Work Law enough. They came through in one of my darkest hours. Krystal was godsend. She was kind, compassionate and on the ball throughout the entire case. Matthew was able to give tough criticism when I needed to hear it and skillfully attacked the opposing party at trial. He has a gift in the courtroom. They changed my life forever for the best. Thank you!!!

Matthew and Rebeca were incredible to work with. At every turn, they returned our emails, or phone calls and were there for us whenever we needed to speak. I can’t thank them enough for getting me through such a difficult time. I would highly recommend Matthew and his team to anyone looking for an attorney in Reno. They were missed and compassionate and I can’t thank them enough for bringing a human element to my case. They changed my life in so many positive ways.

Attorney Mathew Work and his associate Rebecca Carlson were a dynamite team to work with. Their skills, personality and backgrounds offered multiple perspectives at my case. At trial, they both had strengths in representing me in my case. It was incredible to have two attorneys in the quart room for the price of one. This was a service that I didn’t realize was offered anywhere. At the end of the day, they thought their tails off and achieved a remarkable outcome in my case. I can’t thank Mr. Work and his team enough. I can’t leave out his senior paralegal Krystal and legal assistant Lauren. They are just so incredible.

Matthew and his team were nothing short of Lifesavers. They came through for me when I needed them the most. My life has done a complete shift since meeting Matthew, all for the better. He is a unique attorney, he generally cares and has a huge heart. If you were looking for a family law attorney, and right now, Matthew is your guy.

Matthew was honest, straightforward and at times blunt but his honesty saved me thousands of dollars in legal fees when he shot it to me straight.

I’ve know Mathew for years and he has helped me and a number of my friends out over the years. He will always put his clients first. There is nothing this attorney hasn’t seen. Very professional, friendly, thorough and does an awesome job explaining the legal side of things in lamemens terms. Highly recommend.

When seeking legal representation, there were many factors that I considered. Chief among them were Legal Competence, Trial Experience, and Accessibility. After interviewing multiple attorney's in the Reno area, Mathew was the clear choice to represent my case.As a former Deputy City Attorney with the City of Reno, Mathew is not only exceptionally well-versed with regards to the letter and spirit of the law, but also, he has a unique understanding of its application within the context of the local judicial environment there in Northern Nevada. Looking beyond his proven track record of successful litigation, Mathew is a warm, decent human being. I will continue to work with him in the future and would recommend him to friends and family without hesitation.

Work Law is the most honest and hard-working representation you will ever experience. Whether you are in need of family, defense, or business law, look no further than Work Law. Most importantly you get direct contact with Mr. Work. You will not be treated as "a number" like so many other law firms around. You will know he cares about your case. He will work hard to fight for you and you will go to court knowing all the different possible outcomes and what every step entails. Trust me when I say Work Law will go to court for you with the finest representation you will ever come across.

I have never met a more honest person in my life. Mathew always brings his "A" game, day in and day out. If you want an attorney that strengthens his argument, instead of raising his voice to get his point across, Mathew Work is your go to guy. He is by your side every step of the way.
