Donald J. Matson: Defending the Home Team

Wednesday, February 25, 2015 | 10:09 pm

For over 13 years, Donald J. Matson, PC has been a member of the California State Bar, and fighting for his clients’ rights. Since 2009, he has been providing clients in Pasadena with his excellent service in the legal field, from walking you through your initial court appearance, pretrial hearing, all the way through the completion of the case, until he can clean your record.

Unlike other attorneys who treat their clients as numbers, Mr. Matson provides individualized, attentive service to each and every client, and works hard to help you to understand the legal system and the processes involved in your case. It is through better understanding that you can avoid problems in the future, as well.

“I get to know each client personally. They only deal with me as their counsel. There’s no telephone game going amongst associate lawyers, or conflicting advice,” Matson explains of his work.

“I want to sit down to talk to my clients, to learn their stories, so that when it is time to fight for them, whether it be against a prosecutor, an adjuster, or civil defense attorney, I can speak very knowledgeably and quickly recall personalized information about my client and their life to humanize, personify, and help the opposition to see them not as the opposition, but a human being in a difficult time of their lives. It is that personal touch that I think plays a key role in my success.”

Mr. Matson believes that through this process of knowing each client better, he is able to make better decisions for them and feel confident that he’s looking out for their best interests. Every case is also hand selected, “so, I have never taken a case that involves a client that I couldn’t zealously and ethically represent.”

More importantly, Don Matson is a Pasadena local himself, making him more accessible to clients in the area. “By being local I’m always available because I live a mile from the office, and mile from the courthouse. Hiring from within the community just brings everything in full circle, and it helps me understand the needs of the local clientele. Pasadena is different from other areas because of the people.”
