About Matthew

Learn Matthew’s areas of practice.

 

I was born and raised in Middletown, PA.  During high school, I played soccer, participated in the Woodworking Club, volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, and tutored middle school students.  I was also employed part-time as a dishwasher at Eat’N’Park.

 

I am a 2007 cum laude graduate of Elizabethtown College.  During college, I was president of the College Republicans of Elizabethtown, was a peer mentor, and regularly played intramural sports.  During college I studied at the Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex, England.  The Herstmonceux Castle is a castle that dates to the 1440s and has two (2) friendly ghosts.  During college I interned with the Pennsylvania State Senate Republican Policy Development and Research Office and the successful Mike Folmer for State Senate Campaign.

 

I am a 2010 cum laude graduate of Widener University School of Law (Harrisburg).  While at Widener, I was a member of the Mock Trial team and was a two (2) time semi-finalist of the Hugh B. Pierce Mock Trial Tournament.  During law school I interned for the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General in the Legislative Affairs Unit.  I also interned with the Lebanon County District Attorney’s Office.  I also worked for the Honorable Richard A. Lewis of the Dauphin County Court of Common Pleas where he participated in the “Bonusgate” trial which resulted of the conviction of former State Representative Mike Veon.

 

Following law school, I was admitted to practice law in October 2010.  I began work as a law clerk to the Honorable Angela R. Krom of the Franklin/Fulton County Court of Common Pleas.  As a law clerk, I assisted Judge Krom in ruling on motions, petitions, briefs and other pleadings.

 

After my tenure with Judge Krom, I worked for a private law firm in Lemoyne where he was a general practitioner with an emphasis on criminal defense, municipal law, protection from abuse actions, insurance litigation, bankruptcy law, and family law.

 

After my tenure with the Lemoyne firm, I worked for a law firm in Newport, Perry County, where he focused on criminal defense, family law, and bankruptcy.

 

I am admitted to practice in all Pennsylvania courts, the Middle District of Pennsylvania, and the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.  I have practiced in, or worked in, over twenty (20) counties in Pennsylvania.

 

I am active in the community participating in Harrisburg Keystone chapter of Rotary International and the Harrisburg Young Professionals.

In my  spare time, Matt enjoys running, lifting weights, kayaking, hiking, biking, soccer, playing kickball, following the Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco 49ers, and spending time with his family.  I have previously run a triathlon, a half marathon, and countless 5K and 10k races.

Thoughtful, Thorough & Professional
I consulted with Matt several times over the last few years on topics ranging from rental units, homeowner association agreements and business partnerships. His work ethic and reliability during each engagement always made me feel comfortable and confident. Matt’s dedication to the field and his clients is just one of the many reasons why I would highly recommend him.

Very helpful
I have consulted with Mr Sembach multiple times now. Each and every time he takes his time to collect the facts and do his research to give me the best advice possible. I have not needed to hire him yet, but if I ever need the legal help, he will be my man. I would recommend him to anyone.

Great
I hired Matt to represent me on a rape case where this girl I met at a bar claimed I raped her. While I had sex with her, the sex was consensual. Matt thoroughly reviewed and researched my case. He interviewed countless witnesses who saw the girl hanging all over me at the bar. Based on this in depth review, Matt was able to get all of the charges dismissed. Matt is a top notch attorney and I am glad I hired him.

Solid Attorney
I have known Matt for many years. I have referred a number of cases to him. The referrals are always pleased with his results. As a prosecutor, I am always interested in hearing a defense attorney's thoughts on a case and Matt is always willing to discuss a case with me and provide honest feedback. I would absolutely recommend Matt.

Hire Matt Sembach as your attorney!
I contacted Matt after receiving countless solicitation letters from criminal defense attorneys in the mail. After talking to several attorneys, I hired Matt and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. He quickly returned all of my phone calls, he answered all of my questions, and he fought for me. During court he was incredibly well spoken, confident, and knew the law like the back of his hand. If I ever get in trouble again he will be first call.

Great lawyer!
I was referred to Mr. Sembach by a friend. We had a difficult matter at hand and Matt made it look easy. He was so knowledgeable about what we should do with our case. He told us the good and the bad of our situation but always remained positive that we would have the outcome we deserved in this case. This was our first encounter with having to use a lawyer and Matt made it a positive experience. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, down to earth lawyer, stop right here! Thanks Matt for all you did!

FANTASTIC
I hired Attorney Matt Sembach to represent me in my matter. I was told through my friends that he is one of the best criminal attorneys in central PA. I can honestly I was very impressed by his knowledge of the law and his professionalism. He kept me inform about my case status and what the next process would be. He is very reasonable in prices and works with you on making payment arrangements. One thing that is a bonus, he is extremely honest about your case and he will not pull a smoke screen over just to pull more money from you. If you find yourself in a predicament, you should contact Mr. Sembach.

One of the best
For my first ever offense I had no idea how to hire an attorney, let alone what to expect. Fortunately a friend referred me to Mr. Sembach. He helped me understand my charges, options available to me and what to expect with the process (both in and outside the courtroom). I'd highly recommend him to anyone needing help in Central PA.

Knowledgeable, loyal lawyer
I hired Mr. Sembach to defend me recently and I was pleased with his professional manner, his knowledge of the law, his ability to explain everything to me, keeping me updated, and his loyalty. I hope I never end up in this situation again but if I do, I will be going straight to Mr. Sembach.

Excellent
I hired Attorney Sembach to represent me in my criminal case. He knew the law very well and was able to explain it to me in a way that I could understand it. He was confident at every court appearance and fought vigorously for me. I hope I never have to see him again but if I get in trouble again he is the first person I will call.

Matt Sembach
Matt was very professional in handling my case. I had only given him a two day heads-up and he treated my case as if I was his only client. He kept me informed throughout my case and asked very good questions towards witnesses. Hopefully I will never have to call him again, but if I had to, he'd be the top guy. Thanks for all your help, Matt.
