Law Offices of Sheasby & Middleton

Firm Overview

Our firm was established in February of 2003 as a response to other firms who fail to appropriately respond to their clients and provide them with the appropriate legal and factual advice to settle and complete their case.

At the Law Offices of Sheasby & Middleton, we believe communication with our clients is key in resolving their case as quickly as possible. We treat each client with respect and each case is handled individually based on the client's emotional and financial needs and objectives.

Although we are strong believers in settlement and compromise, we are not intimidated by litigation and consider ourselves "litigators." This means when an agreement simply cannot be reached, we are not afraid to argue your case in front of a judge in order to get a final determination when settlement is not an option. We know that moving your case towards resolution is an important part of the healing process for a family experiencing the turmoil of divorce.

We understand that family law is filled with emotionally charged issues. We understand that family law requires legal expertise and an ability to listen and respond to families in a time of crisis. So if you are contemplating filing for divorce or your spouse has filed for divorce, please call us for a confidential consultation.

Example cases

I have handled a complex dissolution with a $3 million estate, community property business and multiple real properties. I have also handled high-income earner child support and custody litigation.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Only certain people can truly provide the appropriate combination of emotional and intellectual support to the client, and my natural abilities in these important areas led me to this field for the satisfaction that it can provide.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Only through understanding the nature and extent of California law, the unique facts of their case and its possible outcomes, can a client make an informed and intelligent decision on their own.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes. Sometimes, the only efficient and effective way of understanding a client's case and transferring this to the judge is through the words of the client.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

When appropriate to the case, a client representing themselves is at times the best method to resolution.

Matthew Sheasby

I have been committed to the practice of family law for the entirety of my career.

My 7-year career has been built on family law and a commitment to understanding the intricacies of this unique and so often emotional area of the law.

My intensity, commitment to my clients, and intimate knowledge of Family Law allow me to provide excellent representation to our clients, ensuring that they receive the best possible outcome in their case.

I am aggressive and demanding. I work to extract the most from your case while always keeping the financial realities in mind. I settle cases when it is appropriate, but do not allow cases to linger when there appears to be no chance of resolution.

Personal interests:

My children and family; rock climbing; mountaineering.
