About me

Attorney Kessler was born in Bloomsburg, PA and was subsequently raised in the small town of Millville, PA in North Central Pennsylvania. Following high school, Attorney Kessler attended The Pennsylvania State University where he graduated in 1995. Following his undergraduate studies, Attorney Kessler attended Widener University School of Law where he earned his J.D. in December of 1997. Thereafter, Attorney Kessler took the Pennsylvania Bar Exam and was admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in May of 1998.

Since graduating from law school, Attorney Kessler has been actively practicing law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania representing clients with regard to a wide variety of issues. More specifically, prior to forming the Law Offices of Matthew R. Kessler, L.L.C., Attorney Kessler worked for the law firm of O'Brien & Ryan, L.L.P., located in Plymouth Meeting, PA, as lead trial counsel in medical malpractice cases venued in Southeastern and Central Pennsylvania. Attorney Kessler successfully represented numerous Philadelphia hospitals, physician practice groups, nursing homes and doctors in medical malpractice actions. In fact, Attorney Kessler was one of four attorneys from O'Brien & Ryan, L.L.P. to be featured in an article published in the Legal Intelligencer (the prominent legal journal for the Philadelphia area) for obtaining a favorable verdict for an emergency medicine physician who practiced at Roxborough Memorial Medical Center.
