Matt concentrates his practice on the defense of retailers, restaurants, and hospitality entities, and the defense of medical malpractice and health care matters. He also handles high-exposure litigation involving catastrophic injury, product liability, wrongful death, and professional liability. Matt’s clients include national hotel corporations, national restaurants, health management companies, and various medical-provider entities including physicians, hospitals, urgent care clinics, and other facilities. Matt also advises physician groups on health care matters involving Medicare, Stark, and Anti-Kickback legislation.
Matt enjoys building a relationship with his clients based on trust. Trust is only earned after learning the client’s goals, candidly discussing with the client strengths and weaknesses of a particular case, providing competent and effective counsel, and always being accessible and responsive -- all while doing so in a cost-effective manner. And, this service must be consistent. Matt’s philosophy is that once a client’s trust is earned, and the client has unwavering confidence in the attorney, better outcomes are achieved and expectations are more likely to be met.
Additionally, Matt believes it is important to evaluate and budget a case early. This generally helps the client decide whether the case should be resolved early, postured for an eventual attempt at settlement, or zealously defended and ultimately tried. No matter the decision, Matt is experienced in all aspects of litigation -- including trial and appeals -- to serve his clients’ needs. Before Matt undertakes a task in a representation, or makes a recommendation to the client, Matt asks himself what he believes few attorneys do, but should: how will this task further the case toward achieving the client’s goal(s).
