Matt Savich is the best attorney I have ever worked with. His knowledge, expertise, and ability to relate to everyone is unsurpassed in my humble opinion!!! He was in direct contact with me during all aspects of my case and hiring him resulted in the best case scenario. He is absolutely the most outstanding attorney in his field of expertise!! He worked with me in regards to payments and I still owe him. I would recommend him to anyone facing criminal charges. He is non-judgmental and very compassionate as well as extremely passionate about doing the best for his client. Thank you Matt!


Since 1997 Matt represented me more than a half a dozen times for disorderly conduct and trespassing charges (I am a former activist who used to engage in civil disobedience). He always settled/tried my cases with the specific care and skill necessary to achieve the best outcome (no jail time and simply paying a small fine). Matt was always available to discuss my cases, and was a pure pro in the courtroom. I highly recommend him to handle your case.


With his extensive experience dealing with traffic violations and his familiarity with many city attorneys, Matt was able to strike a deal whereby my insurance was not impacted. I was very appreciative of the solution he brokered.


Matt has represented me on numerous occasions; both criminal and misdemeanor. Not only is Matt personable and charismatic; but he is well tied into the legal system here in the metro Detroit area which came in very handy. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone in need of criminal representation!!! Thanks again Matt for all your hard work.

James D.

Matt was all around the best lawyer I have ever dealt with. He supported me through a civil suit and criminal case. He was in every way possible on point with helping me when I got into some jams. He listens, is professional, knowledgeable, and doesn’t coat the bull for you either. Besides that he was reasonable in price for all he offers. He is a stand up guy! If I ever need help again… he’s my first call.

Tom R.

Matt was brutally honest and the least expensive. He knows his stuff without being pompous about it. He helped me with a drunk driving arrest. I was recommended by a friend who was recommended by a friend (cop). I just recommended him to my cousin who lost his license and Matt is guiding him through that process.

Vanessa K.

Matt successfully represented me on a personal injury case. He tirelessly worked on my behalf when I was injured. Matt fought for me so that I could obtain compensation. I would recommend Matt. He is a knowledgeable and honest attorney.
