About Matthew

Learn Matthew’s areas of practice.

I worked as a field archaeologist for many years before becoming a lawyer.  I have always been interested in History, Anthropology, and foreign languages. 


I have played the guitar since I was fourteen years old and I also play around on the ukulele, mandolin, and piano. I would also like to write a novel someday.


I am an avid soccer player and a proud follower of the United States National Soccer Team, the Sacramento Kings, the Oakland Raiders, the San Jose Earthquakes, and Sacramento Republic FC.


I also enjoy birdwatching and cooking.

Useful Real Estate Advice
I have contacted Matthew on a number of occasions with questions about many aspects of Real Estate law, including tenant and landlord rights. He has always provided me with useful advice, that I was able to pass along to my clients. As a Real Estate Broker, I am always coming across situations that involve legal questions, and it's great to know I have a source for answers.
