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

Matt breaks any negative stereotypes regarding attorneys. He and his team transcend being “nice” and are KIND. I was immediately comfortable with him and his team and I quickly learned he was the best attorney I could have found. S.G. - St. Louis, 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

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

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

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
