Below you can read some of our clients legal experience with us and our attorney and The Kowtko Law Group, P.A. (each testimonial was voluntarily provided upon request by our Office and is being published with the permission of the client and without any compensation):


" Found Matt to be very understanding and knowledgeable in my divorce. He was willing to work with my work schedule and come to my office when needed. I would recommend Matt to anyone going through a divorce and wants an excellent lawyer.  - Bob Garrett.


"This young SUPERB lawyer has dragged me out of the worst period of my life, showing great passion, perseverance and skill in his work. I am proud to say I had a direct line with him and he was able to hold patiently also my moments of depression. I wish him all  the best and a bright future, he deserves it. Thank you so very much for everything, Matt!" - Francesco M.


"Matt is a true professional and compassionate attorney. He became our 5th attorney in a long 4 year battle, and is the ONLY one that has done anything. He is a bull but respectable in the court room. Matt takes time out of his busy day, even late evenings, to address issues for his clients. I highly recommend him to everyone and will continue to recommend him long after our case is complete. So if you are looking for an fantastic attorney that is affordable, you need look no further than Matt Kowtko." - Stephanie Grizzle.


"Matt represented me in a alimony settlement, I am extremely impressed by his knowledge of the law and his compassion towards me as a client.  I was very traumatized by the divorce and his calming way about him was extremely appreciated.  He would always return my calls or emails in a timely fashion.  I cannot say enough to express how good of an attorney he is and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer." - Jane Brennan.


"My family and I found ourselves in a very traumatic, stressful legal situation with no one to turn to. My father who knew of our situation recommended a smart, savvy, upcoming lawyer. To be honest we were hesitant, however, upon meeting Matthew Kowtko we knew immediately that we had made the right decision. Matthew was extremely professional, fostering, and sensitive to our needs, while at the same time provided expert knowledge in the legal system. His knowledge is ever expansive and his attention to detail is evident during representation. When we needed Matthew he was just a phone call away at all hours helping us when various legal situations arose. I strongly recommend Matthew Kowtko P.A. and often provide his name to many of my friends and family." - No No.

"Amazing Advocate"


"I can't say enough about Matthew. He shows a strong interest in justice and advocating for creative solutions to challenging legal problems. His legal writing and oral advocacy skills are tremendous. He wrote helpful legal letters in order to advance non-adversarial solutions in my case, as well as drafted petitions that support family cohesion and togetherness. In other words, Matthew always has the best interests of the whole family foremost both in his mind and and with his advocacy. Matt can be direct and confrontative when the circumstances indicate. His knowledge of elder law, guardianship law, and family law is extensive and he is able to convey to clients in a clear and succinct manner the nitty-gritty details of applicable law. And to top it off, when we needed finally to attend and present at a court hearing, Matthew is so respectful of all parties, engages the judge in a manner both strong and direct, and has an uncanny ability to think on his feet. He is a natural, with superb courtroom skills, patience and excellent timing in presentation and advocacy. I most highly recommend Matthew Kowtko." - Robert Levine


"Attorney Kowtko"


I first met Attorney Kowtko in June of 2014. I inquired about a noncontestant divorce. Matt (as I call him) was extremely professional, knowledgeable and assisted me with all the necessary steps needed to start the process. He followed up with phone calls and assisted with all necessary documents needed to successfully complete in a timely fashion. I then presented him with a QDRO which my husband and I were oblivious on the how to's etc. and this was new to Matt, but, not for long. He researched the companies that did this type of work and interviewed a few specialist before hiring the most competent one. While this QDRO proved (and til today) is a challenge...Matt, took on the challenge! I relied on Matt to handle both the non-contestant divorce and QDRO in a timely fashion since my husband was on a tight schedule to leave the country. Matt called me almost on a daily basis to keep me abreast of any new news regarding the process. I would and will without hesitation recommend Matt to family and friends who require his service(s.) I wish Matt lots of success in his future endeavors!" - Sincerely, Evelyn Perales


"My experience with Matt was very positive and my case was resolved to my advantage quickly and smoothly. I retained Matt to handle my relocation matter with my daughter from Orlando to Sarasota. Matt is extremely knowledgeable in family law and court proceeding. My first experience with a family law attorney occurred when I had to go to court with my ex-husband and found myself in the middle of a custody battle. This experience was extremely negative as I was always more scared and paranoid after talking to my then attorney than confident in his skills and trustworthiness. I should have listened to my intuition because he took the $4,000 retainer, gave me a ridiculously inflated itemized bill and did very little for me at the end. As a result, when I needed to contract legal services again I was very careful and skeptical; my experience with Mat  helped me regain confidence in lawyers once again. He was always very informative, kept constant contact with me, kept me up to date and educated me about many court proceedings related to my case that I was completely unaware of and always discussed and advised me of possible outcomes upfront before I made any decisions related to my case. He was also very sensitive and considerate of the physical and emotional stress that I was going through at the time and helped me keep calm and confident throughout the entire process. If I ever need a family law attorney again, I will certainly hire Matt; if you are looking for a well prepared, affordable, trustworthy and aggressive attorney, I strongly recommend his services.

Professional, reliable, and results oriented." - Susana R.
