About Matthew

Learn Matthew’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Insurance
    If you believe your insurance company unreasonably denied the claim, we help convince the court of an absence of a reasonable basis for denying benefits of the policy and insurer's knowledge of the lack of a reasonable basis for denying the claim.

    Handling personal injuries, catastrophic accidents, and wrongful death or dismemberment cases including traffic and motor vehicle accidents, loss of life or limb, burns and broken bones, dog bites, workplace safety, & product or premises liability.

I graduated from the James E Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona in 2010 and my primary interest in law focuses on serious personal injury, insurance bad faith, and police liability.

When not practicing law, writing or traveling with my wife and kids, I am usually participating in or watching just about any sporting event. I played rugby at the University of Arizona, played for the Old Pueblo Lions' Rugby Club until recently, and still bleed red and blue when it comes to the Arizona Wildcats. Now, my passion for sports, penchant for mentoring, and love of family have combined as a coach for my sons' baseball and soccer teams and member of the local sports community. 

Philanthropy and positivity are at the core of my community efforts. As the President and founder of the Engage Foundation, a nonprofit that teaches underprivileged kids how to better engage in life, we help provide new, free, and safe opportunities to participate in activities that are challenging, inspiring and underrated.

I also serve on the Board of Directors for the Empower Coalition, a group of young professionals whose goal is raise money to improve lives in the greater Tucson community by empowering charitable organizations with resources necessary to carrying out their missions.

I am honored to be one of Tucson's 40 under 40 as awarded by the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Arizona Daily Star recognizing 40 outstanding individuals under 40 years of age that have excelled in their professional careers and have made a meaningful impact in the Tucson community.

I have earned a reputation as the go-to lawyer in Southern Arizona for all things tech-related and has also started speaking to law students and lawyers about mindfulness in the stressful legal environment. I speak at seminars on a regular basis and have a popular column in the Writ, the Pima County Bar Association's (PCBA) monthly magazine, educating lawyers how to maintain balance in the modern fast-paced world.

I've been recently initiated into Nexus Executives (“Nexus”), “a collaborative of entrepreneurs and business leaders from a wide range of industries—from international service firms to global manufacturing corporations.”

I've written several children's books and has been a prolific writer for many legal journals and even co-authored several sections of the Product Liability Chapter in the State Bar of Arizona's Tort Law Handbook 2012. 

In 2010, I was the recipient of the Andrew Silverman Law Student Community Service Award at the University of Arizona College of Law for leadership on the Community Service Board, which planned and organized monthly community service activities for law students to participate in.
