Matthew did a thorough job in completing our family trust. During the entire process he listened to our concerns and was easy to talk to. I would recommend Matthew to anyone seeking a good attorney.
We found the Crider Law Group is association of quality professionals who are very responsive and quality service providers.
Matthew Crider did a wonderful job. He provided us with the legal documents and guidance our family needed. Highly recommended!
My Mom worked with Matthew Crider for our family trust. He did a wonderful job for us. We would highly recommend his services.
Matthew Crider was a pleasure to work with. He and his staff handled our trust with the utmost professionalism and kept us updated at all times. I would highly recommend Matthew and Crider Law Group.
My husband and I attended a dinner seminar at Season's Restaurant that Matthew books in a private dining area at the restaurant. Not only was the dinner great, but the seminar itself was very informative and Matthew made it really easy for us to follow along as he explained the procedures of how to create a trust. We still had a few questions for Matthew so he invited us to dinner again (at Season's) so we could fully understand how he would prepare a trust for us. After attending the second seminar (and yes, another delicious dinner) my husband and I realized that Matthew Crider was the attorney that we wanted to prepare our trust for us. The overall process was relatively simple -- Matthew met with us in his Davis office, explained the process of the paperwork he would need, how we could obtain it and what the fee would be to prepare our trust. Any time we had a question or problem, either Matthew or someone from his office was available to answer our questions. I really liked the finished project; everything neatly contained within a binder and tucked away up on the shelf. Matthew will meet with you every few years to go over the information in case you have a life change; so far we have not had to use that service. I was so pleased with his work, I recommended my sister-in-law use him as her attorney to prepare her trust.
Client-focused, detailed, patient, professional, trustworthy: Matthew is everything you want in an attorney.
Matthew doesn't just provide a trust, or a will, but helps you develop a comprehensive estate plan taking into consideration the needs of your entire family. He's a good listener and was a pleasure to work with.
Mr. Crider has provided me with counsel and his knowledge of the law during my divorce in addition to creating a living trust for me and my family. I believe he has always had my best interest at heart and I will continue to use his services as needed. I will be referring friends and colleagues should they need any legal services. Thank you again Mr. Crider!
Matthew provided us with exactly what we were looking for. Our will and trust is just the way we had discussed, and Matthew is very personable and easy to work with, even on Zoom.
My wife and I used Matthew to prepare our trust and found him to be both courteous and professional throughout the entire process. He also had multiple communications options, as COVID-19 prevented us from meeting in person until our document signing. We feel fortunate to have found Matthew and we will be using him the future as well.
Crider Law Firm is certainly the best in the market. We have personally worked with Matthew and his professionalism is commendable. His keen eye to details and compassion have made our association of 6 years, very smooth. Highly recommended!
My experience was extremely positive. Matthew did a complete and thorough job on a living trust and I would highly recommend attending one of his free seminars to learn more about living trusts and wills.
Mathew and this team helped me the estate planning. The planning was conducted thoroughly and professionally. Highly appreciated!
Matthew made everything so easy and efficient. Very professional and nice to work with. I would highly recommend.
Excellent outcomes, great listeners, and a genuine commitment to meet their client's specific needs.
Having both reached retirement age and having concern for the future of our adult child and grandchildren, concerning our estate, we decided to research the creation of a revocable living trust.We attended an information workshop by Matthew Crider about estate planning. Having attended other similar presentations, we felt this experience was different. Matthew presented the information in an accessible way using common language without complex legal jargan. His many visual aides explained complex information which, helped to simplify and unify the many details involved with estate planning.Matthew's friendly and professional manner helped us to feel comfortable and trusting of his abilities to help us organize and plan our estate. Along with feeling confident with Matthew's professional services, we felt his pricing was very reasonable and well within our budget.Matthew and his staff, Gene, Lori and Michelle, were very courteous and helpful when answering all of our questions and concerns. The staff provided us with all the necessary documents, for our review, in a timely manner. All necessary changes or corrections were completed seamlessly.The Crider Law Firm exceeded our expectations by creating an all inclusive estate plan which, among other things, included a revocable living trust.The planning for one's possible incapacity and death, and the resulting distribution of personal assets acquired over a life time, can be a challenging and emotional process. We felt the kindness and attentiveness of Matthew helped to ease much of our stress.The resulting Estate Planning Portfolio, is a very well organized and complete document which covers many areas we would never have concidered, had we attempted creating it on our own. We are very grateful for the Crider Law Firm's support and our estate portfolio.We now, can rest knowing our heirs have a roadmap of our wishes and will inherit our personal assets without undue complications or stress.
Crider Law Group put together our Family Estate Plan and Will with expertise and professionalism. It’s peace of mind that took a big weight off our shoulders. We should have done this years ago but its never too late. Thanks Matthew and Staff.

We used Matt and team to create our family Trust/Will and enjoyed Matt's professionalism direction on reaching our long term family goals.He listened to our specific needs and made adjustments based on our great discussions. He really went the extra mile by spending additional time updating us on potential impact on the new California housing laws as well as planning for our disabled son. Thanks Matt!
Matthew and his team did a wonderful job in helping us create our family trust. We have been thinking of creating our family trust for a few years but kept on postponing after listening to others on how complicated and involved the process is. Without having much prior knowledge of what the content/terminology of the trust, Matthew has developed a logical step by step process with a very comprehensive questionnaires and timely short videos that guides us through the entire process. We are able to complete our family trust is a short amount of time and his team deliver a very organized and professional documents that is easy to follow and for future updates. Thank you !!
We had long procrastinated getting our affairs in order and now nearing our 60's decided to get it done -especially now in the time of Covid-19. Crider Law Group was efficient and very helpful and made getting our will and trust completed painless as possible. He had an answer for every question. Very happy with the service.
Mathew and his staff did a fine job changing our estate from Florida to California. We are confident that we now have a valid estate plan and documents for California.
Working with Matthew was smooth and professional. He walked us through the will and trust process and let us know what worked best for our current situation as well as addressing future needs. During the entire process he was in communication with us as well as being available for our questions.We would highly recommend Matthew for any legal needs.
Great experience with our estate plan! The final result was comprehensive and well organized.
Matthew and the entire team, Michelle, Lori and Gene are very responsive and professional. Very helpful in all aspects.
It was a pleasure working with Matthew, he's very knowledgeable. Michelle was also very helpful and helped me out quite a bit when I needed responses quickly. I recommend their services and would use them again.
We were very impressed with Matthew and his team from start to finish. We attended his group workshop and then scheduled our meetings to set up our family trust. Matthew was clear in all of his instructions and patient with us as we made important decisions. Our final signing was during the shelter-in-place orders and Matthew arranged for us to do a "curbside" appointment. Accommodating and friendly. Definitely recommend Crider Law.
Made getting a will very easy
Matthew did an excellent job as our attorney in selling our property.I know he has a lot of clients, so his prompt responses and attention to detail really meant a lot to us. He also executed some necessary changes in our Family Trust, with great legal advice, in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of his services.
