I was fortunate enough to meet Matthew through friends in between my divorce and recent change efforts to my childrens’ parenting plan. Those changes required some complicated movement through the court system. Persistence, patience, and good communication were all crucial in this process Knowing him already before we got started, I was confident we had a good chance at getting the majority of what I wanted for my children. We actually got all of it. As a father I will always be grateful. My only regret is that I did not know Matt when I was going through my divorce.
If you are reading this I hope you find your way to the best place for your family as well. Please know that Matt is someone who will do everything he can to help you with that.J.K. - St. Louis, MO
I met Matt through personal channels and always found him to be gracious and professional in his conduct, so when I needed help with a divorce I immediately reached out to ask for his help. Throughout the process I was impressed with his clear, objective, thoughtful, and empathetic advice. I felt very taken care of by his office throughout a difficult process. It helped to make an inevitably stressful time feel much more even-keeled knowing that I had someone that I trusted taking care of all of the legal elements of the separation.
I would highly recommend Matt and Voorhees Family Law to anyone looking for a lawyer with high integrity who will get the job done in a professional, calm, and straight-forward manner.J.B. - St. Louis, MO
After 30+ years of marriage I was seeking a divorce. I chose a woman for my first attorney, thinking she would be more understanding of my situation. I was quickly disillusioned. She was very unapproachable, difficult to contact, and left me totally confused as to the divorce process.
My 2nd attorney, also a woman, was a mediator, and after a few appointments she referred me to the practice where Matt was working. She felt I needed an attorney that litigated in order to protect my interest and that of my family.
It turned out to be a great referral. Matt explained each step of the way as the divorce progressed. He was kind and considerate to my situation, even if I had emotional moments.
Matt was always available for my questions via phone and/or email. Also realizing the costliness of a messy/challenging divorce, he tried to keep cost down. I always felt he was honest and truly cared. He made a very difficult time easier for myself and family.
Matt Voorhees gave me faith once again in the judicial process. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt to my family, friends or co-workers.S.M. - Kirkwood, MO
A divorce is never an easy thing to go through. Matt and his staff made an arduous process easy to understand. His staff, and Matt in particular, explained everything in terms the layman could understand. Options were presented for different courses of action but there was NEVER any pressure to choose one option over another. I couldn’t have asked for more from a lawyer and his staff, especially Kimberly, than I received from Voorhees Law Firm.C.M. - St. Charles, MO
Matt guided me through every step of my divorce from a very challenging ex-spouse. When it came to matters of asset distribution, he explained everything to me simply and clearly. He didn’t just represent me, he was a ROCK that helped me get through the end of a 28-year marriage with my dignity, my kids, and my financial future intact. Matt is AMAZING!Linda - St. Louis, MO
Mr. Voorhees is an excellent attorney. He has a unique ability to serve as a counselor in every sense of the word, which enabled him to really listen and understand what my goals were during the divorce process. His attention to detail and thoroughness played an intrinsic role in ensuring the outcome we received exceeded my expectations. Our case was complex and very contested. Matt’s courtroom presence and preparation stood out in comparison to the other litigator.
I feel that having him represent me was a critical component in achieving the custody arrangement and child support I was looking for.M.M. - Ballwin, MO
Shirley was prompt, professional, and sympathetic to my situation. She never dodged my calls, but called within an hour of my messages. I would recommend Shirley to anyone who’s going through a divorce. She makes it less scary, and helps to make it a comfortable transition.L.C. - Creve Coeur, MO
Matt Voorhees represented me through a very long, difficult divorce. He is a very competent, thorough and skilled lawyer with a kind, caring, helpful, and “approachable” demeanor. This meant a lot to a 60 year old woman that was “scared to death” by the whole process. I would highly recommend him!!N.M. - Chesterfield, MO
The end of any relationship provides a wide array of emotions that can easily overwhelm an individual. The legal intricacies and various aspects of the court systems bring a new set of challenges that certainly adds to the plethora of items to attend to when facing the reality that you and your children are starting life anew. I was fortunate and blessed to be represented by Voorhees Family Law throughout my own arduous process. I was provided with accessibility, responsiveness, understanding, genuine care, respect, and success.
Without reservation and with heartfelt endorsement, I would recommend Voorhees Family Law to anyone and everyone that may have needs related to family law.T.S. - Greenville, IL
I was terrified of the divorce process. Everything about it brought up fear, anger and grief. The only comfort was I had counsel that I could trust. Matt demonstrated incredible patience with me. I asked an extraordinary amount of questions, and he never made me feel stupid or annoying. I really needed that kind of support.
I was confident in his advice and the options that he laid out for me. I never felt pressured toward any decision. The choices were always mine. But, he had the experience to provide me with scenarios that empowered me to make the correct choices for me. I’m really grateful that I chose him.L.R. - Clayton, MO
I worked with Matt Voorhees on my divorce and found him to be very professional and knowledgeable. He made a very difficult situation a lot easier to deal with. I have recommended him in the past and will continue to do so.M.D. - St. Louis, MO
Going through a divorce is difficult! You want a lawyer familiar with divorce laws and the court system. You need a lawyer who will have your best interests in mind. I found that person in Matt Voorhees.G.C. - St. Louis, MO
I was referred to and used Matt to represent me during my divorce 5 years ago and more recently for my pre-nuptial agreement for my second marriage.
Matt took the time to listen to my situation which was a bit more complicated than most by my business. Although I knew I wasn’t a “big fish” by any stretch of the imagination, Matt took the time to personally handle the aspects of my case that needed his attention. Not once did I feel like I was getting the “brush off” or feel unimportant. You could tell that he truly wanted to understand your situation. Being a small business owner, I definitely kept Matt on his toes. He really put an incredible amount of professional thought into his recommendations to me and his negotiations on my behalf.
I was pleased with the outcome in both my divorce (well… as pleased as anyone can be in a divorce) and my prenuptial agreement. I most certainly would recommend him to a friend or family member.T.H. - St. Louis, MO
