    I have known Craig Matthews since he joined my law firm over 30 years ago. Since then, he left that firm to form his own practice, and I left for the bench, but I have kept in touch with him through the years, having lunch with him and discussing legal issues with him. He has represented my sister-in-law on two matters. I know Craig to be hard-working and conscientious. He is especially knowledgable in his specialty -- elder law. I believe he is an outstanding lawyer.
