About Matthew A Marner

It's hard to tell one lawyer from the next. It's hard to tell which ones are full of it, and which ones can back it up. So, I want you, my potential client, to learn about me, what I've done, and what I can do. I also encourage you to go to my website: There you can watch video of me actually fighting for my clients in the courtroom before the judge and jury, you can read about my most recent successes, and you can get to know the person you are counting on. I serve clients in felony and misdemeanor cases in superior court, justice courts, and municipal courts throughout Maricopa County including: Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Scottsdale, and others. I tell my clients that we are a team. When you are scared and uncertain about criminal charges, about the court system, about the punishment you might face; or when you feel helpless because your loved one is facing charges, you want to know about the person you are investing your trust, time, and money in. When you retain me as your attorney, you will know who I am and what I can do for you. You won’t have to wonder, “who is this guy?,” “is he any good,” “can he help me, my child, my spouse?” You or your loved one will be my client and my teammate, not simply a paycheck as many other attorneys see you. I run my own law practice with the same dedication to fighting relentlessly for my clients as I have since my first day as an attorney. I hate bullies. I hate when the state comes after good people. I hate when the police use scare tactics and trickery to do harm to my clients and their families. And I will fight back with every tool I have at my disposal. My clients are not simply just a paycheck. I believe in what I do and I don't take my clients for granted. If you are looking for a fighter and a team approach to your case or that of your loved one, I’m sure I’ll be speaking with you soon.
