Buffalo, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/18/2015 -- Anelli Xavier, New York's DWI focused law firm, is pleased to announce a Buffalo expansion. This expansion includes a new office in Downtown Buffalo along with a new attorney who will lead that office.
Attorney Matthew Hagen has joined Anelli Xavier to further develop their growing portfolio of experienced DWI attorneys throughout New York State. Mr. Hagen comes with a wealth of experience to the firm's newly located office at 50 Fountain Plaza, Suite 1400, Buffalo, New York 14202.
"Our commitment to our Western New York clients has never been stronger than it is today," said Tom Anelli, Founder, Anelli Xavier. "We are truly privileged to add an attorney with Matthew's experience and ability to run our Buffalo office. And our clients will reap the benefits of Mr. Hagen's passion and drive." Anelli added.
After graduating law school, Mr. Hagen decided to pursue a career in law enforcement as a Special Agent with the Department of Defense. He was stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego, California, and then transferred to Eglin Air Force Base in Pensacola, Florida. After realizing that his true passion was practicing law, Mr. Hagen opened his own law office in Calexico, California, located in close proximity to the Mexican Border.
Additionally, Mr. Hagen served as an Assistant Federal Public Defender in the San Diego office before deciding to return to New York to be closer to family. Most recently, Matt served as an Assistant Public Defender for Monroe County where he handled thousands of misdemeanors and hundreds of felonies, many of those, which were DWI cases.
"I find DWI cases to be some of the most complicated and demanding criminal cases that exist, however at the same time, the most rewarding. I take my job as a DWI defense attorney incredibly seriously. I do not believe that my job is to go out there and try my best…my job is to rise to the occasion to get the best possible result for my client. In my opinion, anything less is unacceptable," Hagen said.
