About Matesky Law

A Different Law Firm

Matesky Law pairs high-end expertise with flexible representation options in order to provide legal counsel that best suits each client's particular needs.

At Matesky Law, you won’t find one-size-fits-all billing arrangements, big egos, or inflexible firm policies. Rather, you will find a law firm that strives to deliver the highest quality of legal representation in a manner that meets clients where they are. Sometimes this means flat-fee-for-service options. Sometimes this means contingent fee agreements. And, yes, sometimes this means payment on a billable hour basis.

In every case, whether representing start-ups, solo artists and inventors, or large multinational companies, Matesky Law’s first priority is to be the kind of law firm that makes clients want to come back to their lawyer.

Seriously.
