Review Matthew Trail

About Me

I have represented hundreds of children and parents across the state of Florida in IEP meetings, discipline referrals and due process complaints. As a former legal aid attorney, judicial clerk and Peace Corps volunteer, I have dedicated my career to ensuring justice for those most in need.


I grew up in Tennessee and received my undergraduate degree in 1999 in communications-journalism from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. I worked for two years as a journalist in Texas and North Carolina before returning to Tennessee for law school.


After graduating law school from the University of Tennessee College of Law in 2004, I joined the U.S. Peace Corp and was stationed in Albania. While in the Peace Corps, I worked on a variety of community projects with local NGOs assisting poor children and trafficking victims.


Upon returning to the United States, I began work as a judicial clerk and then took a job with the Florida Equal Justice Center in Fort Myers and became admitted to practice in Florida in 2008.


While at the Florida Equal Justice Center, I represented a diverse array of clients with problems ranging from domestic violence to immigration. My focus however has always been in helping disabled and troubled children and teens in the education setting. I led a media and community campaign on behalf of behaviorally challenged students at the Royal Palm Exceptional Center and I have regularly lobbied the Florida State Legislature on behalf of my clients.
