About Matthew

Learn Matthew’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Workers compensation
    I have dedicated the majority of my practice to protecting the rights of injured workers in East Alabama and West Georgia.

    26 years

  2. Personal injury
    Often times, workplace accidents are caused by the negligence of someone else. If so, we are able to pursue "3rd party" claims against them outside of workers' comp.

  3. Social Security & Disability
    If you are no longer able to work, we can help you get the benefits you deserve.

Matt represents a wide range of clients in the areas of workers’ compensation, construction litigation, employment litigation and personal injury. Whether he is representing individuals, local businesses or large corporations, Matt provides responsive, cost-conscious, outcome-based representation for his clients.
Matt has tried in excess of 100 jury trials. He is licensed in both Alabama and Georgia. Located in East Alabama, Matt represents all types of clients, whether an injured worker making a claim for workers' compensation benefits or a large national corporation being sued for millions. Matt understands that the process is the same for each - clear and concise communications with the client regarding the merits of the claim and probable outcomes, combined with excellent legal representation in the courtroom and in the pre-trial process.

Great Attorney
Mr. White helped me with my personal injury case. He and his office staff were very professional during the entire process. He kept me informed every step of the way. Was always available when I contacted him with questions or concerns on my case. I would highly recommend Matt White and would use him again if needed in the future.
