About
My background is diverse, but with a focus as a litigator. I am skilled in trial and appellate advocacy, and my background as an investigator affords me a different perspective when looking at any matter, from claim, to suit, to resolution. I have represented some of the largest corporations in America in litigation in both state and federal courts, and have been counsel to parties involved in some of the most high-profile mass casualty events on record. My zealous advocacy seeks the best resolution for my client, in all matters, and I embrace the use of litigation tactics to enhance my client’s position in seeking any such resolutions.

"I hired Matt after my first attorney placated the Court too many times. On Matt's first day in Court, he fought harder for me than on any previous hearing during the pendency of my case, and he set a new tone for future appearances in my favor. Matt clearly explained the law, the possible outcomes, and his strategy, clearing up how he intended to litigate my case, and enabled me to feel secure and hopeful in the ultimate outcome. If you want a lawyer who actually advocates for you, and who also cares about you as an individual as well as for you case more generally, then Matt is the right attorney."

He is a creative problem solver - always looking for efficient and effective ways to resolve any particular matter. He is very proactive and makes it a point to come to the table with options and solutions, and is then adept at executing on the developed plan.""
