What Gail did for our family has transformed our life entirely. My partner and I were living in a world controlled by someone else which was extremely tumultuous causing problems throughout our lives and in our relationship. He was wary of seeking custody after a court letdown years earlier, being the father in a mother’s state, amongst other anxieties that kept us living in fear. It was during the first minutes upon meeting Gail that he decided to hire her after she assured us that we could get exactly what we deserved, more even. Gail is an incredible, stellar attorney. She worked hard for me, my family, and my daughter so that we could finally have the life together that we all, especially our child, deserve. Gail was consistently available and responsive when we had questions or concerns, and the process moved very swiftly. She was honest about expectations moving through the courts and her wealth of knowledge was invaluable in our case. We started off small, building our case on our own. Then we met Gail and she said, “let’s go big; we can do it.” We were awarded 50/50 custody and are currently thriving. We have our daughter on a consistent schedule with alternating holidays and she has never been happier. What could have been a long and strenuous experience, Gail turned it into quick work. I believe that she was the exact person we needed to give us the hope we were desperate for. Both myself and my partner are so deeply thankful for her dedication and passion for her work. Gail, you have changed the path of our future and we thank you so much! If you are a person feeling defeated, helpless, or afraid about your child’s welfare I would say this; you do not know what you do not know. Gail dashed my partner’s fears away in one swipe with her confidence and experience. I would absolutely recommend Gail Mattey to anyone I met who needed a family lawyer.

Outstanding, Affordable Family Law Advocate

I came to Gail with my high-conflict divorce case needing to file a highly complex and emotionally-taxing motion to change child support as the non-custodial parent. 10-years into my nearly constant, post-divorce battle with my ex regarding child support amount and adjustment disputes; motion/counter-motion, I had little hope and even less money with which to file my latest motion. Right away in our initial meeting she not only listened to me but I was amazed and happily surprised at how quickly she got up to speed with the background of my case – even laying out the basic strategy elements of how she would approach, complete, file and defend my particular motion for the best chance at getting a positive result. I could also tell she actually cared about my outcome and that, combined with her 7-years of direct experience working under several judges/referees within the Hennepin County Family Court system, as well as her being sensitive to costs (I’m not rich) and willing to allow me some flexibility on that, convinced me to hire her. With no prior experience on my case, and with only a (long) day’s worth of work, we worked collaboratively on it together and by the end of it I had a solid motion – and some regained hope – with which to go back to court. At my hearing, Gail did an amazing job presenting and defending my motion; efficiently and effectively highlighting the important points of what I needed changed and why…even the judge commented on and thanked her for submitting a well-written motion that helped her quickly discern and deal with the facts and circumstances with my motion. After expecting another disappointing day at the FJC, I could’t believe that the judge actually ruled on it that day – and mostly in my favor. I’m convinced it wouldn’t have happened that way had I been with any of the several attorneys I’ve hired for these types of matters in the past. I sincerely and highly recommend Gail for any family law issues you have to deal with in Hennepin County and will definitely depend on her unique combination of legal talent and Hennepin County family court system-specific experience with any future motions I need to file.

Genuine and Transparent

I reached out to Atty Mattey via email. She replied promptly. My case is for Interstate Child Support. She gave me an hour free consultation where she analyzed my case and provided invaluable, unbiased advise. She wasn’t just interested with retainer fees, she was interested whether I needed to spend for a lawyer or not. Very transparent and very professional. I am thankful I picked her to consult with and I would retain her if the need arises.

Life Changer

I consulted with Gail and referred a close friend of mine to her. She was not only knowledgeable and experienced, but also had an energy and passion that really impressed me. In a short amount of time (6 weeks) she was able to not only provide my friend hope – when he had given up – but also changed his entire life. My friend expressed to me that he felt like someone finally cared, listened and actually represented him and his wishes (rights), as he had been through this before and felt as if he were left high and dry, to represent himself in matters he was not experienced in. What Gail was able to do in a such a short period of time, feels like nothing short of a miracle. To hear my friend sharing about his newly granted parenting time, and the FAIR order of child support, it truly has been amazing and heart-warming. I now recommend anyone I meet that is needing advice or representation in Family Law matters to Mattey Family Law. She is a Miracle-Worker and I thank her from the bottom of my heart! She is amazing!

Changed Life with my Daughter!

I had been through two separate lawyers before hiring Gail. The two past lawyers always had assistants calling about the case and writing the proposals. We never got passed mediation and I did all the talking in the mediation room. Working with Gail I received everything I was originally denied in mediation over 18 months ago without even going to mediation or court! Gail was very hands on and did all the work; research, communication with opposing representation, writing proposals/stipulations, and always calling me to clarify information regarding the case. I highly recommend Gail to anyone seeking to rectify family matters in court. As I guy who felt the system was failing him, Gail turned everything around for me! The process took less than 6 weeks. Thanks Gail!
