Matt’s approach to a lawsuit is a personal and collaborative one. During your initial consultation with Matt, he will help you identify realistic goals, give you an honest assessment of your case, and outline the legal steps and estimated costs required to achieve your desired result.

Throughout your lawsuit Matt will explain and prepare you for each stage of the litigation process. This collaborative approach empowers you to make the important decisions, manage risks, and achieve the best possible outcome—whether at trial or through a negotiated settlement. Because every lawsuit is unique, Matt often engages experts from multiple disciplines to assist him. Depending on the case, this may include private investigators, accountants, engineers, or medical professionals.

Closely connected to the community, Matt has served on several corporate, institutional, and not-for-profit boards and committees in the health care, education, social services, and environmental sectors.
