“I take this job very personally. Insurance companies and their lawyers make billions of dollars undervaluing and denying wrongful injury claims. Contempt for the insurance industry combined with the desire to help those in need are the strong motivators that drive my success.”
Matt comes from a long line of family dedicated to the service of others, and that philosophy informs every part of his practice. Born in Houston and raised in Pearland, Matt’s roots remain firmly planted in his community.
His passion for writing sparked his curiosity in the legal profession. In his time at South Texas College of Law Houston, Matt was a member of the South Texas Law Review. His passion for advocacy came from his time competing for the prestigious varsity Moot Court program at South Texas. Matt traveled the country to represent the school in several national competitions as both a brief writer and an oral advocate responsible for arguing both sides of presented issues. He received multiple awards for his oral and written advocacy, including the award for best brief at the 2016 National Health Law Moot Court Competition. The skills that Matt learned through his time at South Texas formed the foundation that would rapidly develop into a successful career as a practicing lawyer.
Matt has represented hundreds of clients and accumulated millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for them. His creativity, writing skills, and dedication have served his clients well, briefing and arguing contentious motions, and finding novel solutions to their complex legal issues. Matt is also not afraid of the courtroom; he has first-chaired multiple trials, handling every aspect from voir dire to evidence presentation, to jury argument. Matt fought hard as co-counsel to obtain a top 100 verdict in Texas in 2018 and the largest food poisoning verdict in the state for that year.
Matt understands that many people become injured unexpectedly, and many of his clients have never needed an attorney before. That’s why he makes sure to walk his clients through every step of their case. Matt also firmly believes the injured and indigent deserve the same zealous, meticulous representation that billion-dollar insurance companies often pit against his clients. He prides himself on helping those who need it most and dedicates himself to achieve the best possible result.
When he is not busy fighting for his clients, Matt spends much of his time with his family, friends, and two dogs. He is lifelong Houston sports fan and a music lover. You may even catch him at a karaoke club belting Prince or Chris Stapleton.
