Matthew Langhals

Matthew Langhals started his career as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in St. Clair County, MI.  After eight years, he then began a career in private practice and moved back to his home state of Ohio.  In 2012, Matthew opened his own firm with a focus on family law and an additional focus on creating an atmosphere where clients can feel understood, involved, and educated.  It's hard enough getting through a family law matter, and you don't want an attorney who makes it harder. Matthew believes educating clients about the law and the legal process provides each client with a better understanding and a greater sense of comfort.
