    Mat Work and his team are so communicative and responsive, which in my opinion is the most important aspect for an attorney/law firm. The knowledge and professionalism that him and his staff bring is so refreshing. At the end of the day they treat you like a person with compassion and not just another "client.". I highly recommend Carlson & Work. 🔥

    Matthew and Rebecca are such a breath of fresh air when it comes to attorneys. They don’t frivolously bill you, they only speak the truth and are willing to have the difficult conversations when necessary. If you or your family are looking to retain a hard-working law firm with solid humans, these folks are the answer. My family and I put our stamp of approval proudly on them.

    If you’re looking for somebody to coddle you, hold your hand and tell you what you want to hear, not what you need to hear, this may not be a fit. However, if you’re looking for hard honest truths, grinders and a law firm that isn’t going to waste your time or your retainer, these are your people. I quickly learned, if I needed to hear from them, I would. Otherwise, I let them do their job and in the end I couldn’t be more proud of how the case turned out for my family.

    I was involved in a serious car accident last year. I skipped the games and went straight to a friend in the family that practices bankruptcy law. She eagerly sent me to Attorney Mathew Work. Trust me when I tell you, not all attorneys are created equal. Our initial offer increased 500% after Mr. Work got involved. He is a man of his word, direct, blunt and has an incredible work ethic.

    Update:I was contacted shortly after leaving this review and they were extremely cooperative and understanding of my sons situation. They agreed to set up a consultation for my son TODAY 😃🙏. Thank you for your time and you have no idea how much you are appreciated right now.Original:The website says same day consultation but when you call to schedule you are told weeks out. Its an emergency case with a hearing scheduled less for than 24 hours after being served and I'm being told weeks after they state in black and white same day.

    I hired Mathew to defend me against what were false charges. From the first appearance in court, it was obvious the court held Attorney Work in high regard and more obvious that the DA trusted him. In the end, the false charges were dismissed. I would 100% recommend Mathew to anyone looking for an honest attorney.

    The buzz about this firm is real. They are just different. The difference is, they aren't afraid to tell you you're being an idiot, or that your expectations are not real. They live and die by fact and ignore all the noise

    They deliver. Plane and simple. They're never going to sugar coat things, they tell you hard, honest news, but they actually care about the best interest for everyone in the process, especially my kids. I respect that they tell you hard news even when it is tough.

    The second we walked into court, I knew I had made the right decision. Rebecca > His attorney. It was almost sad to watch unfold. She was sharper, more confident and just quicker on her feet.

    My experience with Attorney Rebecca Carlson was terrific. She was kind, helpful, honest and communicated throughout the entire process. Even when the news was hard to deliver, she was there by my side. In any family law case, there are high and lows but with Attorney Carlson by my side, I was ready for the lows and knew she was always working to deliver the highs. I would highly recommend my friends and family to this firm.

    Working with any law firm is never easy, there is always tension but you will get the truth from this law firm. I never had anything sugarcoated and I was never told what I wanted to hear, I was only told the truth. At the end of the day, we didn’t get the results we all had hoped for but I got more than my moneys worth out of everyone. The outcome is fair and seeing these people work, gives me peace of mind that I got the best results possible.

    I’ve spent the last year speaking with this firm on nearly a daily basis. I would be lying if I didn’t have days that I was upset with them and days that I was pleased with them but at the end of the day, they always answer the phone, they were always honest and prepared me for the difficult times ahead . We went through a tough battle together and I’m so thankful, at the end of the day, they were in my corner.

    As former law-enforcement, I have spent my fair share of time in court. Attorney Mathew Work, is hands-down the best trial attorney I have ever seen in my 30 years in law-enforcement. He is confident but not arrogant. He is humble but not passive. He is intelligent but not a know it all. He understands the dynamics and is typically three questions ahead of everyone listening in the court room. He is playing chess and everyone else, often including the judge, is playing checkers. Matthew may sincerely be the only top tier trial attorney in Nevada
    Joanne Schwartz
    19:45 17 Dec 19
    Recently, I found myself facing a very scary custody battle with a very malicious ex. I needed a fighter. I found Rebecca. She is an absolute bull dog. She is smart and demands respect in the court room. Frankly, seeing the opposing attorney in court with Rebecca said it all. She ran circles around the opposition.

    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.

    I’m so happy I found Work Law. They were practical, pragmatic and realistic at every turn. They gave me the good and the bad news with nothing but the truth. I really admire Matthews approach to law, he is very common sense and doesn’t waste your time.

    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.

    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.

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.

    15:08 11 Oct 17
    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.
    Mark Cantrell
    04:01 11 Oct 17
    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.
