“I am so grateful for Attorney Matthew Kearney! I didn’t know who else to turn to and a friend suggested I contact Eques Law. He took the time to really listen before offering advice and pointed me in the right direction. He was kind and non judgmental which put me at ease!

I would recommend him to anyone in need of legal help!!”
