Throughout Matt’s upbringing, business and entrepreneurship has been a foundation of his character that has guided his professional career as an attorney. Prior to pursuing his legal career, Matt worked for his family’s business in the commercial cleaning and property management industry for four years after attending George Mason University for his undergraduate education. During this time, he developed a professional skill set in client relations as a Senior Contracts Manager servicing property management contracts across Northern Pennsylvania, New York and North Carolina.
Working for his family instilled a business acumen that enhances his corporate law background. His ability to relate and advise our corporate clients with legal matters is a result of not only his legal expertise, but his prior experience that allows him to relate firsthand to the challenges that many businesses face in today’s economy. His passion to help business owners start, grow and eventually sell their company is the motive behind his pursuit of a career as a corporate attorney. To further enhance his skill set in corporate law, Matt graduated with a Juris Doctor and a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and the University of Pittsburgh Katz Graduate School of Business, with concentrations in corporate law, health law, finance and strategy.
Upon graduating, he and his wife, Heather, moved to Raleigh to be closer to family and to enjoy the mild North Carolina winters that allow for year-round activities. Outside of his practice as a corporate law attorney, Matt loves the outdoors, and is frequently enjoying the local mountain biking trails or kayaking on Falls Lake.
