About me

Matthew Noyes' interest in personal injury law started after he was involved in a car crash himself at the age of 16. As he was recovering from his fractured hip, torn rotator cuff and other injuries, Matthew learned how injuires affect almost every aspect of one's life. His first hand knowledge has helped him to aggressively illustrate how a crash victim is much more than a pile of medical records-something insurance companies seem to always think.


Matthew has been with the Perenich, Carroll, Perenich, Avril, Caulfield & Noyes, PA since 1989. He is a partner and the Director of the firm's workers' compensation department. He has dedicated most of his adult life to helping victims of personal injury. As he worked on his education, Matthew was a legal assistant in personal injury law firms helping to ensure that those injured as a result of the negligence or carelessness of others were protected in our legal system. By the time he graduated law school, Matthew had over seven years of practical experience as a legal assistant helping injured people put the pieces of their lives back together.


Matthew Noyes was born in Naperville, Illinois and has been living in Pinellas County since 1976 when he, his parents and his 10 brothers and sisters relocated to Clearwater. He attended St. Cecelia Catholic Scholl where his mother was his music teacher. He also graduated from Clearwater Central Catholic where his brother taught him chemistry and physics. Following high school, Matthew obtained two associates degrees from St. Petersburg Junior College and went on to earn his Bachelor of Arts degree cum laude from the University of South Florida and his Juris Doctorate at Stetson University College of Law in St. Petersburg, graduating sixth in his law school class despite working full time to support his family.


In addition to his dedication to his clients, Matthew is dedicated to his community. He enjoyed being an adjunct professor in the Legal Assistant program at St. Petersburg Junior College. Matthew has spoken numerous times at the Clearwater Bar Association's People Law School and has appeared as a guest on the radio show, 'Ask an Attorney.' He has sponsored youth baseball teams, and enjoyed reading to younger children at the local library. Previously, Matthew oversaw the Christmas in January event sponsored by the Clearwater Bar Association. This event provides a Christmas for foster children and underprivileged children in our community. Hundred of children have benefited through Matthew's and other attorneys' efforts with Christmas in January.


Matthew is admitted to practice in all Florida courts as well as the United States District Court. He is a member of the Academy of Florid Trial Lawyers; the Association of Trial Lawyers of America; the Clearwater Bar Association and the Hillsborough County Bar Association. Matthew has appeared as host and guest of the live call-in legal television show, FLA LAW.


When he's not working, Matthew enjoys spending time with is wife, Marti, and his two children, Krystal and Jacob. Krystal attends St. Petersburg College and remains "Daddy's Little Girl" even though she recently turned 21 years old. Jacob is just 3 years old. Matthew and his wife adopted Jacob from Guatemala, and he has been home since he was 18 months old. He is such a good little boy and we are blessed to have him in our lives.


Matthew also enjoys the Chicago Cubs and Tampa Bay Rays. He coaches and plays on the successful Perenich & Carroll softball team in Maderia Beach.
