Matthew Smith Reviews
I can’t begin to express what a wonderful experience I had working with Matthew Smith and his paralegal. They were professional, thorough, knowledgeable and most of all, kind and understanding during a difficult and painful process. Divorce is a scary time and there’s no greater comfort than feeling you have the best on your side—and hiring Matthew is hiring the best. He consistently worked to balance what was best for my case based on his extensive experience, knowledge and genuine interest in my well-being, as well as my personal values and needs. He cared about my case and I always felt like a priority. Matthew’s paralegal was an absolute joy—she took all of my calls as though I was speaking with a trusted advisor and friend. They worked diligently, efficiently and with genuine compassion to resolve my matter in a way that was better than I could have ever hoped for!
Matthew Smith & Caitlin Wilkinson offered exceptional counsel throughout my separation and divorce. As a former military spouse, I wanted to make sure that I was protected and understood my rights concerning military retirement pay and benefits. Matthew was extremely knowledgable about military divorce and well versed in the required language for our separation agreement. He also offered excellent advice that helped protect me financially in the initial stages of separation. Although he was more expensive than many lawyers I consulted, this investment paid off in the end. Matthew and Caitlin were both very helpful and prompt with their responses and reassuring throughout this stressful time. I highly recommend contacting them if you are dealing with a divorce or separation.

Matt Smith was my primary attorney and handled my divorce. I felt comfortable with him from the start. He has a mix of compassion, toughness, experience, and frankness you want from your attorney. He gave me legal advice but ultimately let me make the decisions in stepping through all the phases of the divorce. He was a very reassuring presence for me. His support staff is excellent. I mostly interacted with Caity Wilkinson who was always very friendly and helpful. The whole team (Matt, Caity, Brianna Salerno, and Catherine Fu) went the extra mile to get things closed out just before the end of the year. Thank you L&M.

I was going through a separation when I obtained Matthew Smith, at Livesay & Myers, as my legal representative. It was truly a difficult time for me. Matt was patient, understanding, and helpful with my case. I am proud and thankful that he was on my side. I had never seen so much dedication, great rapport, impeccable work, and professionalism. Also, his paralegal assistant, Kim, was always there with kindness and a helping hand whenever I needed it during my case. I can’t thank Matt and Kim at Livesay & Myers enough. I would definitely recommend Matthew Smith and Livesay & Myers to anyone in need of legal assistance in a divorce.

I came to Livesay & Myers during a time of high distress. I honestly did not want to file for divorce but Matthew Smith, in his patience, worked out a Marital Settlement Agreement on my behalf. It was a drawn out process, but Matthew Smith and his paralegal Caitlin Wilkinson was always there with clear and concise legal advice. Something that I never expected from the legal profession was compassion and was more than surprised to find it in both Matt and Caitlin. They were always timely but most of all realistic and explained the fine language of a settlement. I cannot thank them enough for the hard work and compassion.

Recently, I found myself in the unfortunate position of requiring legal counsel, but yet fortunate enough to find Matthew Smith of Livesay & Myers. While Matthew is young energetic and personable, he demonstrated the aptitude, knowledge and intellect of a litigator seasoned by a lifetime of courtroom proceedings. What impressed me the most was Matthew’s attention to my case and his swift responses to phone calls and emails. Not one day passed where I questioned his diligence. I am very happy with the legal services Matthew provided and I would recommend him to anyone who find themselves in similar circumstances.

All of the people I worked with at Livesay & Myers were talented and helpful in my divorce case. The circumstances in my divorce were a bit out of the ordinary with significant unknowns. Matt Smith helped navigate what was the law and what could happen in court. Based on their advice I was able to negotiate a reasonable settlement. Throughout the entire 18 month effort, I felt that the Livesay and Myers team were the utmost professionals in every manner in which they handled the case. The staff (paralegals, accounting, etc) were also always professional and pleasant to deal with. I would highly recommend this firm and specifically Matthew Smith to anyone getting a divorce.

Communications were timely, the timeline for completion was completely accurate, the cost was reasonable, and I received assurances through the entire process that the course of action was in my best interest. I cannot say enough good things about Matthew and his associates in the professional handling of my case as well as the peace of mind they gave to me. I would highly recommend Matthew and his team for legal services related to divorce. Thank you.

Matthew Smith and the entire staff at Livesay & Myers were an exceptional team to work on my family law issue. Each provided sound advice and clearly laid out my options at each step in the process. Never looking to push me in any direction, Livesay and Myers was clear that their only goal was to get me through the legal process with both my child’s and my best interest in mind. If any future legal issues arise, I would not consider going to any other firm besides Livesay and Myers. Also I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs legal advice or action in child custody/support matters.

Thanks! to Livesay & Myers, P.C. attorneys Matthew Smith, Cambridge Baker, Chris Doyle, Shirin Afsous and Paralegal Caity Wilkinson for the professionalism throughout the whole process of my child custody & visitation petitions. I was so excited and grateful for the wonderful results of a shared custody and visitation outcome granted to me with a 2-2-5 schedule two days every week then rotating weekends & holidays. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer Attorney Matt Smith and team to anyone searching for family attorneys. I never felt alone during my case and Mr. Smith was exceptional every step of the way. He orchestrated a terrific argument for my rights as a father. I was notified for each hearing or motion well in advance as to prepare myself. I would use this firm again for any future legal matters they are simply the best!

I worked with Matthew Smith and his assistant Ms. Wilkinson for about a year for a very complicated international divorce case. Mr. Smith was always very professional and very prompt to respond to all my questions in a timely fashion. He is a very knowledgeable attorney and I am very happy that I had the chance to work with him and his team. I will return back to him in the future for any family law cases.
