Let me help you build the business you have always wanted.


“As my real estate team was growing, I realized quickly establishing an LLC and having legitimate independent contracts was crucial. Matt went above and beyond for me. He made the process easy!! I was overwhelmed when I initially started looking at the steps but Matt broke it down for me!! Really appreciate his work!” – Real Estate Team Leader

“My company worked with Matt Dearden to create contractual agreements. He took old, outdated agreements and drafted a new comprehensive agreement, greatly reducing our potential liability. Not only did he provide quality work, he also maintained a quick turnaround. I highly recommend working with Matt.” – Vice President of Dayton-based company

“Matt was exactly the lawyer my small business needed, even before I knew I needed a lawyer. I tried to navigate the process of becoming a LLC by myself, but many of the legal terms and requirements were more than I could grasp on my own. Matt simplified the steps for me, explained any complicated language, assisted me with compiling the documents needed to form a legally solid LLC, and walked with me every step of the way. Not only that, but he worked with me to evaluate and revise my existing business contracts to give me even more legal security and to provide an easier and clearer document for both my clients and myself. I couldn’t recommend him more!” – Founder of Dayton-based business
