About me

I believe strongly in individual rights and I love fighting for the underdog in court.   If there's a way to help you, I will.  I leave no stone unturned and seek the best possible resolution in every case.


In my free time I enjoy the Colorado outdoors, biking and poker.  I played in the main event of the World Series of Poker in 2010.

  • Rhidian David Watson Orr

    I have known Matt as a prosecutor and since he decided to become a private defense attorney. He has a reputation as an intense litigator who zealously represents his clients. He has a knack for being able to talk to jury’s about the socially awkward truth in dealing with sensitive matter. This makes him the right person to talk to for Criminal defense cases especially Domestic Violence. He has a reputation for being someone who does not judge people. He listens to the reasons and underlying facts of each case. This allows him to have and open perspective and to see the defenses other lawyers miss.
