Matt represents clients in many different types of personal injury cases including wrongful death, auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, product liability, slip and falls, and dog bites. Matt learned how insurance companies defend and value claims while working at an insurance defense law firm both as a clerk while in law school, and then as a defense attorney after passing the bar exam. Matt now uses the knowledge and training he gained during his years working with insurance companies to benefit our clients.
Matt concentrated his study on pre-law courses while in college at Ohio University where he excelled academically and received a degree in Legal Communication. Matt was then awarded a full-tuition scholarship to attend the University of Akron School of Law.
Matt prides himself on his willingness to fight for the rights of the injured. When he’s not working hard on behalf of his clients, Matt loves spending time with his family and is a devoted husband and father.
