Real Client Testimonials

He is very knowledgeable about the law and was able to give me his opinion through his experience with the law and the courtroom. He was patient in explaining the positives and negatives of the legal pursuits, along with the risks. I was especially impressed with his control and approach in the courtroom. He was direct, to the point, and would not back down. He won't let go. He is excellent at arguing the law and questioning witnesses.

Former Client

The Law Offices of Cutter and Lax did an outstanding job taking care of a very difficult divorce matter in the most professional and efficient manner possible. I could not be more pleased with the outcome. They are always accessible, easy to work with, and most effective. I would offer my highest recommendation to anyone needing legal counsel during such a stressful time as the dissolution of a marriage in California.

Matt / Nelson,

Thank you both so much for your work on this. Your assistance during this stressful event was exemplary and so very appreciated. Again, thank you for your professionalism, advise, and efforts. You both made this a lot less stressful than it could have been.


Hi Matthew,

Thank you, I received the judgment. Is this it? Is the case really over? My goodness, I didn't think this would ever end. I'm so thankful to you Matthew, for everything that you have done for me and my family. I can't thank you enough. Thank you for working with my payments. Thank you for your words of encouragement. Thank you for being they're every step of the way, during this difficult time in my life. And lastly thank you, thank you, thank you for helping me bring my daughter home.

And no, you may not sub yourself out. Because, I feel like we are friends now.


Mr. Lax and Mr. Curtter were great. They took personal interest in my case, and did the best job possible. They were very easy to reach, and if not would always return my calls as soon as possible. They got me any and all documents I needed on time without any waiting, and always followed up with me to answer any questions. Due to my case, I had to get lawyers in both CA and TX. Mr. Lax and Mr. Cutter were by far the best of my team of lawyers. I highly recommend them.



Like most people I found the property settlement and judgment portions of my divorce to be very challenging and stressful. Your patience, guidance and frequent counsel were worth more than I could quantify. Your rates and billing were very reasonable and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your "lending an ear" those times when things seemed to be hopeless or out of control. It would be my pleasure to provide you with a referral anytime.


I am so happy, appreciative, and grateful that I had Matthew Lax, from Cutter and Lax, by my side in court. In a time of fear and distress, Mr. Lax was there, readily available and comforting at the same time. He prepares for anything so there are no surprises. Along with getting helpful advice he was reassuring things will be ok. He got me everything I needed from my case and I couldn't feel more accomplished if it weren't for him. Thank you again so much Matthew Lax.



One day I found myself in a desperate situation. My spouse wrongly accused me of domestic violence and the way the system works was able to get a restraining order against me. Mr. Cutter and Mr.Lax came to my rescue. These attorneys defended me with the same vigor as if they themselves were being accused. They were able to gain all of my rights back, have my case dismissed and did so at a very reasonable fee. Thanks guys you gave me back my life.

Nelson and Matthew,

I want to thank you for your kindness, for helping me and advising me on how to go through my divorce. I really appreciate it.

God bless you.


To Matthew Lax and Nelson Cutter,

Thank you very much for your services. Because of you my alimony payments have been cut almost in half. Your representation in court was great. If I need further assistance I will be sure to contact you.

Thanks again,


To Cutter and Lax:

My case was complex, since it spanned three states.

I'm writing this letter because I have been on my own through the family court system in the past with very frustrating results. Mr. Cutter was patient with me and explained how the court system functions.

I was extremely impressed with Cutter and Lax. Their professionalism is obvious by the results produced. Mr. Cutter always answered all my questions and returned all my e-mails. At Cutter and Lax, it is all about the client and bringing families together.

I recommend Cutter and Lax to any father or mother who feels overwhelmed by the Family Court system; they will help you and be available to you with the honesty and integrity you expect from an attorney representing you.



Nelson & Matthew,

Thanks so much for a job well done!

Your rate was certainly reasonable and you were very generous on your terms in these times when all prices are skyrocketing. If it had not been for your understanding, I surely wouldn't have been able to bear the costs.

Initially, I found you through your impressive web page. However, you were always personally accessible and even came to my home on several occasions during my recovery. Nelson, your counsel during the court proceedings resulted in a judgment even better than I had anticipated.

All the very best to you both. I will certainly recommend your expertise should I meet someone who needs efficient, effective yet economical legal support.



Nelson and Matthew, I just received a copy of the judgment. I am so thankful to have found a very hands-on attorney who has been there from start to finish. You guys have certainly taken out from me, all the stress and depression I was going through during this entire process. Thank you for your assistance, great advice, and encouragement. I can now start my life again knowing this obstacle is finally over. Thank you so much again and more power to Cutter and Lax.

God Bless You!


Thank you for all your work! I deeply appreciate all you and Mr. Cutter have done for me.
