Matthew is compassionate, dedicated, and zealous in helping individuals who have been harmed by the negligent, careless, and intentional acts of others. Everyone should feel safe, especially children, whether they are at home, school, work, or out in the community. Matthew is committed to making our communities a safer place and advocating for those who have been harmed.

Having worked closely with several families where children have been sexually abused, Matthew understands the devastating impact this can have on the victim and their entire family. However, you need not be alone. Matthew can help you understand your rights and ensure perpetrators are held accountable both civilly and criminally.

Likewise, if you have been injured as a result of somebody’s negligent or reckless acts, Matthew is committed to making sure responsible parties are held accountable so that appropriate changes are made and to restore peace to victims. Because Matthew previously represented several insurance companies, he understands the importance of having competent and effective representation when dealing with companies and insurance adjustors to secure fair and adequate compensation.

Stand up for your rights. Holding individuals and companies accountable for their actions and misconduct is necessary to ensure unsafe conduct, policies, and procedures are corrected. By helping people who have been harmed, Matthew has helped make this community safer, where he resides with his wife and four children.
