Dedication & Excellence

Matt brings commitment, experience, and steadfast determination to the clients of The Drexler Law Group. Mr. Drexler's litigation and appellate experience combined with his skill for negotiation and mediation continue to meet the needs of our clients.

Matt prides himself on being always available and fully dedicated to his clients, who rely on his advice and legal representation when going through hard times.

Matt handles domestic relations matters (family law, divorce, child custody, protection orders, child support, modifications, guardianship), civil litigation cases (business disputes, contracts, personal injury) and estate planning matters including the formation and amendment of wills, trusts and estates.

Matt represents clients in cases ranging from uncontested divorces to complex litigation where the parties are involved in high asset or high conflict disputes.

Matt's business background and financial analysis translates well for clients involved in small or medium sized business valuations.

Matt is an aggressive advocate in contested child custody and child support matters.

​Matt is the Firm's go-to for marital agreements such as prenuptial agreement (a/k/a prenups, pre-marital agreements) and post-nuptial agreements.

Mr. Drexler also assists clients in estate planning whether the client needs a simple will or a more complex trust instrument to transfer wealth or specific assets.

Matt invites you to meet with him in person or by telephone to discuss your case during a free consultation session.

The Drexler Law Group's financial structure allows the firm to offer not only competitive rates but also flexible payment options.

​However, don't hire The Drexler Law Group because our payment terms and rates are the best around; retain The Drexler Law Group because our attorneys are the best legal advocates who will never compromise the needs of the client for personal financial gain.

Background

Prior to establishing The Drexler Law Group, PLLC, Matt served as a Managing Partner and General Counsel for a larger law firm in Colorado Springs. Matt left behind the much larger, business-centered law practice including the never-ending billable-hour push and constraints that prevented dedicated, client-focused representation.

By establishing The Drexler Law Group, we adopted the best of the best and threw out the worst in designing a firm from the ground up that is committed to providing aggressive, dedicated, straight-forward and affordable representation to honest and hard-working folks who find themselves in the middle of hard times.

Matt began his private practice legal career as a litigation attorney in the law firm of Godin & Baity, LLC located on 17th Street in Downtown Denver.

​Matt handled complex civil litigation cases including motor vehicle accidents and major personal injury matters as well as domestic relations, criminal, and probate matters.

Matt brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Drexler Law Group and maintains his relationships with members of Godin & Baity, LLC including sharing legal counsel roles in larger matters.

Matt also served as Deputy Appellate Defender with the State of Colorado where he handled complex appeals in the area of felony criminal defense.

Prior to relocating to Colorado, Mr. Drexler worked as a Law Clerk at Dalsey, Ferrara & Albano of Springfield, Massachusetts in the areas of civil litigation, insurance defense, subrogation and personal injury.

In law school, Matt earned a position on the Law Review and honed his legal research and writing skills. In his second year on Law Review, Matt was invited to be Symposium Editor in the area of Health Law. Matt graduated with Latin Honors and excelled as a faculty research assistant.

Prior to beginning his legal career, Matt was the Program Administrator for a National Science Foundation Research Program in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of South Carolina.

​Matt pursued his undergraduate degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder where he graduated with Distinction and studied Juror Judgment and Decision Making for the Center for Judgment and Policy.
