From an early age, Matthew embraced a work ethic that extended to all areas of life, including academics, relationships, and professional pursuits. His journey is characterized by the values of empathy, integrity, and grit, which serve as the driving forces behind his pursuit of success, principles he upholds on a daily basis.

Matthew’s educational journey encompassed a Bachelor of Arts degree from Hamilton College, followed by his a Juris Doctor degree from the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University. During his time in law school, he demonstrated his commitment to legal advocacy by actively participating in moot court competitions and contributing to the ASU mock trial team. His exceptional skill in trial advocacy, oral presentation, and legal brief writing earned him membership in the Order of the Barristers honors society.

Before embarking on his legal career, Matthew worked as a paralegal at Gage Mathers, a period during which he played a pivotal role in securing tens of millions of dollars in recoveries for clients under the guidance of Martin and Joe. With a sense of gratitude and pride, he embraced his association with a globally esteemed firm.
