Mattie was very professional, honest, patient, knowledgeable and she kept me informed every step of the way in my case. I could not be happier with her representation which resulted in her winning my case. She spent many hours with me to ensure that she fully understood my case. I will without reservation recommend her to my friends and use her in the future.
Ms. Fore was initially assigned by case back in 2011, when she worked for the Public Defender’s Office. I feel fortunate that I had the privilege of working with her from the start of my case until the very end. Throughout the whole process which lasted a few years, she always kept me informed of the status of my case and kept the upmost professionalism. Due to her passion, hard work, and genuine care for me as her client, I would recommend Ms. Fore first and foremost to anyone needing legal counsel. For all of my cases, her representation was priceless. I was literally facing the rest of my life in prison, but with the diligence and passion she put into my case. It was finally resolved in my favor. She has continued to keep in touch with me to this day, after several years, which shows how much she truly cares about the individuals she represents. It is an honor to say that I have the utmost gratitude and respect for Ms. Fore and for everything she has done for me.
Mattie did a great job keeping in contact with me and moving my case along. She was very responsive to all my questions.
My family and myself feel Mattie S. Fore handled my case 100%. My charges were taking advantage of the elderly, (my mom and granny ) with whom I lived with for 20 years at one stage of my life. I did not, and would not do anything wrong to them… I was gonna go through trial and all that, but I felt that if the house is all they wanted to drop charges, [it] would save me a lot of court time, and I wouldn’t have to worry about jail time, probation. I was fully confident in Mattie, I just didn’t want to go through a trial. She (Mattie S Fore) handled everything spectacularly and in the end no jail or probation, and instead of a felony got a petit theft charge. I will recommend (Mattie S Fore) to anyone that needs an extremely thorough and dedicated defense attorney.
Mattie is an excellent lawyer she was very professional, and knowledgeable she handled my [fiance’s] case and kept in contact with [us].

Ms. Mattie S. Fore is by far the very best lawyer for criminal defense that I have ever had the pleasure to meet. And Ms. Fore is not new to the game. She has many years of lawyer experience out of the Palm Beach County court house… I was looking at a 5 year prison sentence and my great attorney, Ms. Mattie Fore, was in court with me when I was taken to visit the judge, and my lawyer, Ms. Fore, was so darn good, that I walked out of court a free man. Ms. Fore had gotten me a sentence of 86 days time served in the county jail. So if you are seeking legal help you will not regret calling Ms. Mattie Fore.
Dear Mattie, Thank you for representing me. My situation was very stressful but you were there for me. I am pleased with the outcome and your handling of the case.

All your efforts made it possible for me to get back on my feet and get back on with my life. It is a blessing to have you representing me. I will never forget how much you helped me.
When a person is arrested for a DUI, they will be held for 8 hours before release, or until they are no longer under the influence. After that time has passed, a person is permitted to leave jail, often on their own recognizance (O.R.)—in other words, without having to pay...
A person without a criminal history may have the opportunity to resolve their drug possession case without a criminal conviction. If the circumstances of the case seem to suggest drug selling or manufacturing, these opportunities are almost never offered...
If you have had a criminal case dropped, been found not guilty at trial, or if you have successfully completed probation as a first time offender, you may qualify to have your criminal record sealed/expunged. Having a clean record may open up job opportunities otherwise...
