Matt is a native Mainer that brings a range of experiences to his practice of law. After graduating from Biddeford High School, Matt earned his undergraduate degree studying entrepreneurship and business administration as an Arthur M. Blank Scholar at Babson College. During college, Matt was part of a team recognized for work consulting for a program aimed at helping Veteran’s overcome PTSD, along with becoming one of the first students ever to submit winning business plans for school-sponsored contests at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. In his years following graduation from Babson College, Matt co-founded a company called Gemvara, for which he was personally involved in raising over $50M in venture capital prior to the company’s sale to Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway.
Like many Mainers who venture across state lines for college, Matt eventually felt the call to return home. Upon his return to Biddeford, Matt became an advocate for various types of people struggling to find a voice, eventually pursuing a degree in law to bolster his advocacy efforts. To that end, Matt chose to attend the University of Maine School of Law. Matt graduated in 2021, passed the bar on his first attempt, and began practicing law 2022.
Much like a primary care physician does in a medical context, Matt views his role as help people navigate legal issues that substantially impact their emotional, physical and financial well-being. Sometimes, that’s by rolling up his sleeves and directly representing clients. Other times, that’s by providing advice that enables people to handle matters themselves. And, much of the time, it’s by helping connect people with specialists that will be best suited to handle a matter in a specialty area of the law.
In all cases, Matt believes the health and well-being of clients comes first. Whether you’re looking to enforce a contract, recover from a personal injury, negotiate a business deal, navigate the probate process, sort through zoning issues, finalize a divorce, etc — Matt encourages you to reach out for a free consultation.
