About Matthew

Learn Matthew’s areas of practice.

Practice area

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.

Patient and treated me like a human!
Matthew Carty took extra care and patience when dealing with my issue. There were some unfortunate circumstances that lead to my eventual phone conversations with Matthew, but he did not hesitate to patiently listen to the issues I was having after my car accident and doing whatever he could to make things right on my behalf. I had never dealt with a lawyer before or dealt with the aftermath of a car accident. No one was injured in this accident, thank God, so it wasn't a case that Elk & Elk would take, but Matthew took a tremendous amount of time out of several of his evenings to talk to me about it and give me valuable advice about what I should/shouldn't do if I were to ever have this happen to me again. He treated me like family, like a father speaking to his daughter in an effort to protect her. I really appreciated that and would highly recommend him and Elk & Elk to anyone seeking my advice regarding legal assistance.
