About me

Matthew focuses on elder law, estate planning, and related practice areas. He began his career in the field of trusts and estates, and expanded into elder and probate law. He quickly realized that he enjoyed the personal nature of working in estate and elder law, and chose to continue by opening his own firm.

He is passionate about taking care of his clients, and treats each of them as if they were family. 

Matthew was admitted to the California bar in 2006 and has practiced law in Contra Costa Country since 2006. He earned his J.D. at the University of San Francisco.  He earned his Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of California Berkeley. 

Matthew is a member of the Trusts and Estates section of the California State Bar.  Additionally, he is a member of the Barristers section, Estate Planning and Probate section, Elder Law section, ADR Section, Solo and Small Firm Section, and Litigation section of the Contra Costa County Bar Association.  Matthew is on the Executive Board for the Robert G. McGrath American Inns Of Court, Contra Costa County Senior Legal Services, and the Barrister Section for the Contra Costa County Bar Association.
