About me

I am a shareholder practicing in the Business Litigation, Fiduciary Litigation, and Business Law practice groups at Davis, Matthews & Quigley, P.C. in Atlanta, GA.  In addition, I am registered as an arbitrator and general civil mediator with the Georgia Supreme Court Commission on Dispute Resolution.


I represent businesses of all sizes, as well as business owners, families, and individuals, in various types of litigation, including disputes related to contracts, construction, business torts, real estate, probate and fiduciary matters.  I also review, negotiate and draft contracts, provide advice to existing businesses and start-ups, and assist clients in the formation of business entities.  Prior to becoming an attorney, my background included computer programming and related experience in the technology field, as well as operating small businesses.  I believe this additional experience provides me with valuable insight into the issues that my clients encounter.  With an approach that strives to understand my clients' business or situation and apply first-rate problem-solving skills, I am driven by results: achieving the best possible outcome with the least amount of disruption to my clients.


I am a member of the State Bars of Pennsylvania and Georgia.  I am admitted to practice in the Georgia Supreme Court, Georgia Court of Appeals, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia, U.S. Court of Appeals (11th Circuit), Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court, Pennsylvania Superior Court, Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, and the U.S. Supreme Court.


I have also appeared pro hac vice in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri, the Chancery Court for Knox County, Tennessee, the Chancery Court for Shelby County, Tennessee, the Tennessee Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of Tennessee.

  • Michael Carl Asseff

    Matthew and I were oppising counsel on a case that had the potential to become very complex with high legal costs. Matthew showed courtesy and professionalism in my dealings with him, and he worked diligently to reach an amicable resolution of the matter. It was a pleasure to work with him.
