Wh Law is unlike any other team you’ll work with. With an experienced organization and compassionate staff, Brandon and the attorneys at wh Law excel in multiple practice areas, including:
"Matthew is an excellent attorney. He’s got years of experience doing criminal and civil work. He worked for the federal prosecutor and then a county prosecutor before doing defense work and so he has both the professional network and the insight to be a great servant for his clients, whatever they’re facing. His attitude and work ethic also earn the respect of opposing counsel. He’s a trustworthy attorney with a great heart, and all this is why I refer clients to him all the time."
