Your criminal defense attorney should have positive client testimonials. We do.

Hiring a criminal defense attorney can be a frustrating and confusing process. You probably don’t know the attorney you’re about to hire.  Relying on reviews provided by previous clients can help make the decision easier.

Below, you’ll find criminal defense testimonials written by clients of Meyer Van Severen, S.C.  Each of these clients approached our firm with a different issue. Some of our clients had already been charged.  Others hired us prior to charging.  The issues faced by these clients ranged from municipal violations to aggravated felonies.

I was facing 3 charges two of them felonies, I already had two lawyers prior too Mr. Meyer who were unable to negotiate any plea or make any progress. I went with Matt because it seemed at the time that I was going to have to take my charges to trial. Matts confidence and presence in the court is unmatched. Matt explained to me what his plan was to defend me and went over the law with me, we talked about what was strong in my defense and what was not, every time we talked he informed me of any changes and conversations with the DA. In the end I was confident in the defense that Matt prepared to go to trial, however the DA offered a deal of no felonies and 15 months of probation. This was a pretty complicated case that took over a year to get through and involved other courts/counties/ and law enforcement. I know that I chose the right law firm and that without having such a skilled lawyer I would not be writing the best review I can, more likely would be writing I miss you letters from a cell. During my sentencing Matt spoke to the court about me. The judge asked me if I had anything to say and I was still a little lost for words because of Matts ability to communicate so clearly what it was that I wanted to say.

Unfortunately one of my family members needed a criminal defense lawyer. I called many in the Milwaukee area and Matthew was not only the most professional but also the most empathetic person I spoke to with reasonable rates. I cannot recommend Matthew enough. He is in another class of criminal lawyer. He is someone you can trust, he is super responsive, and he is very clear in his written and verbal communication. Best of all, he worked with us over months and eventually to a wonderful outcome of the case being dropped entirely (since it never should have even happened)! While it was a terrible situation to have to hire a lawyer at all, Matthew did a superb job and I would 100% recommend him over any lawyer in Milwaukee. You will have peace of mind that you have the best, honest representation on your side at a reasonable rate.

“If you are reading this, most likely you need a criminal defense attorney, just like I did! The best advice I can give, is hire him immediately. He is a very good lawyer and will work for your behalf. Hire him and do what he says, that’s is what you need to do. I was impressed with his ability to cross examine people with kindness and caring, such that the truth was heard without feelings in way. That way when the judge was able to hear the truth and make up her mind according to just he facts. He was in charge of two cases for me, but when he needed to raise his voice in the court room, he did! The judge respected him and he won both cases for me!! No need to look any further, hire him, do what he says!”

"Don’t let his youth fool you. He is every bit as good as any weathered Attorney. He has such a great drive to meet his client’s needs. I was his client and although the odds did not seem to be in my favor, he gave his all in trial with what we had to work with and won! The jury only deliberated for 45 minutes too. Aside from his ability to be a great attorney, he is very personable and and all around great guy to work with. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding criminal defense attorney."
