The Law Office of Matthew S. Kolodziejski, PLLC represents clients charged with all felony and misdemeanor offenses in state and federal courts. Being charged with a crime doesn’t just mean the threat of prison or jail time, but also collateral consequences that can last a lifetime.



Some of the most serious constitutional violations occur when police officers overstep their legal authority and take the law into their own hands. At The Law Office of Matthew S. Kolodziejski, PLLC we help clients seek justice and significant compensation when their rights have been violated by the police.


“Matt Kolodziejski is an excellent attorney. After a negative experience with a different attorney during my pre-trial proceeding, I hired Matt to handle the trial. With only a week to prepare for trial, Matt developed a strong defense strategy, gathered witnesses, submitted necessary motions and I was ultimately cleared of the charge. Following my successful criminal defense, Matt has promptly advised me on the implications of filing a civil suit and I plan to continue working with him on that matter.

I highly recommend Matt Kolodziejski’s representation and really appreciate his efforts. Throughout this disturbing experience of being falsely charged with a crime, I learned first-hand how difficult it can be to find a lawyer with a genuine interest in serving client needs. Matt has demonstrated a tremendous level of professionalism, competence, versatility, empathy, tact, responsiveness and intellectual rigor.”
