About: Michael Matthews

Michael “Mike” Matthews is a bankruptcy lawyer practicing in the Beaufort, Jasper, and Hampton County areas. The majority of his clients reside in Bluffton, Hilton Head Island, Beaufort, St. Helena, Lady’s Island, Walterboro, Ridgeland, Sun City and surrounding areas. His bankruptcy practice concentrates primarily on Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 cases.

After moving to South Carolina many years ago, Mike began working for a Plaintiff’s firm in Beaufort County. Although he enjoyed his time there and his clients, his real passion was to help others needing financial help and or relief. Thus, he decided to open his own firm and practice bankruptcy law.

Mike is a firm believer that financial pressure can be the most debilitating pressure one can experience. Often times those experiencing financial pressure simply need someone to assure them things can get better and help them get out of their situation. Mike likes to say that “There is nothing better than helping someone out of a situation and a burden that has been carried too long. Knowing that someone can sleep again and begin to live life is rewarding beyond description. If I can play a small role to help accomplish that, I am happy to.”

Mike is admitted to practice law in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of South Carolina, the Federal and State courts of South Carolina, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth and Sixth Circuits, and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Mike owned two successful businesses he started in his early 20s and owned for many years. The first was a golf retail store and practice facility and the other a restaurant. As a result, Mike has a unique business background enabling him to understand the fluidity of the business world and the challenges and stresses of business ownership which is helpful to many of his clients.

After deciding to leave the business world to cross-off law school on his life’s “to do list," Mike attended law school in Michigan. While there he also clerked for a Senior Federal Judge. This experience gave him a unique look into the inner workings of the federal court and judicial chambers.

Mike has had and continues to have a unique and successful professional life. However, his true love is his family. He has a wonderful wife, Laurie, and a young son, Regan. Both make him proud and happy everyday.
