Diligent, thorough & capable attorney

I have engaged Brutlag, Hartmann & Trucke to perform legal work on a number of varied issues. Matt has exceeded my expectations on all engagements. Everything from real estate, to contract reviews, to collections. In addition to being knowledgeable and thorough on all reviews/filings. Matt has provided me with strategic ideas to approach situations which I would never have thought of on my own.


Excellent Legal Representation and Counsel for Residential Home Buying

My husband and I found Brutlag, Hartmann & Trucke through Avvo as we were relocating from out of state and were purchasing a home without the use of a realtor. We strongly recommend Matt for multiple reasons. First, he provided sound advice on ensuring the title was free and clear and there would be no issues prior to us getting too far into the process.
