“Matthew Kraut was hired by my union to represent me in a case where false allegations were made against me. Matt was great to work with. He was fair, reasonable, and very professional. Matt was always quick to respond to any issues or concerns, and he was very knowledgeable of POBAR. Even though I hopefully will not need his services in the future, I would highly recommend Matthew Kraut as a defense attorney.”
