James Mathews Stiller, Jr. was born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. After a career as an officer in the United States Air Force, Matt attended Widener University School of Law, in Wilmington, Delaware, and began his career as a jury trial lawyer. Matt resides in Milford, Delaware.

Matt’s passion is criminal defense jury trial work. He accepts criminal and DUI cases in all three counties in Delaware. Matt has experience in a broad range of cases, ranging from traffic tickets to death penalty capital murder. Matt believes that in criminal cases, where the penalty may be life-altering or life-threatening for the accused, the only legitimate defense is the most vigorous defense. By questioning every piece of state’s evidence and by asserting every constitutional right of the accused, a vigorous defense may prevent the state from convicting and punishing innocent citizens.

Matt also accepts representation in significant personal injury and wrongful death cases. He has litigated such cases resulting from automobile accidents and slip-and-fall accidents. Attention to detail, an interest in the medical aspects of personal injury cases, and the ability to plainly explain even the most complex materials to the jury are what set Matt apart from other attorneys in this field.
