5/5

"I have used Klosinski and Overstreet for several closings, but used Matt Padgett for an issue my parents were having with their homebuilder. Matt was excellent. He took care of our issue quickly and for far less than we thought. Excellent attorney who I'd highly recommend. He took an issue that we thought might take a month, but took care of it in a day."

5/5

"Matt Padgett has provided both personal and professional legal services for me and my family and there is no one else I would trust more with either. Great communication and follow through, if Matt says something he means. 6 Stars."
