Attorney at Law
Chiara Mattieson founded Mattieson Law, PLC in 2020, guided by the principle that legal services should be provided in a manner that is necessarily helpful to clients, not just a necessary expense.
Mattieson Law puts Chiara’s experience and skill to work for clients in a lean, agile, dynamic, and flexible framework that enables her to bring quality legal services and representation to a wider, more diverse client base and often enables her and her clients to see, and say “yes” to, strategies and solutions that may not have been identified or considered before.
Chiara is service-focused, knowledgeable, and honest. She started Mattieson Law in the midst of a pandemic and understands delivery of services in a straightforward manner that respects Clients’ time and resources, using technology like virtual meetings and solutions like flexible scheduling, is the way forward.
She has also begun a blog to provide insight and information to her readers. She welcomes transparency and wants people to understand legal processes and concepts.
In her time outside of the office, Chiara is a dedicated horsewoman, family woman, dog owner, and friend. She is a member of the Board of Directors of Horses’ Haven, a non-profit equine sanctuary and adoption facility located in Howell, Michigan, and is the co-founder of Horses Haven’s Project Imagene, a program that provides a “privately owned horse in professional training” experience for horses and ponies in rescue that need this intervention to be best prepared for life-long adoptive homes. She is also a competitive equestrian (dressage) and shows Horses’ Haven horses as ambassadors for the organization. Pictured are Chiara and her current dressage mount, Horses’ Haven’s Holiday (barn name “Ponyboy”), at a dressage show in March 2020.
Chiara is proud to be the owner and founder of her own law firm. As you may gather from her pastime choices, Chiara is brave and determined. She’s also passionate, compassionate, and has a great sense of humor and quick wit.
Chiara knows what it takes to formulate and execute winning strategies and embraces and enjoys getting the work done. Contact Mattieson Law and find out what it’s like to have her work with and for you.
