Hi, I’m Matt. 25 years ago, I learned a great lesson from a seasoned lawyer in my first law firm. He told me that my job as a lawyer is to solve problems. He was right and that’s what I do, solve my clients’ problems.
I represent clients who live, invest or operate businesses in Indiana. I have represented real estate investors, landlords and property managers, building trades, entrepreneurs, business owners and clients in need of estate planning, to name a few. I focus my practice on prevention, because preventing a problem is always better than solving a problem. I have also been a trial lawyer for 25 years now.
I believe that every client representation must bring added value to the client. That means a client should not spend more money in attorneys’ fees than the value of those lawyer services, or the problem the client is trying solve, or the thing the client is trying to build or protect.
I practice law, because I like to fix things, and I like to build things. In the end, that’s what we do as lawyers. We fix problems, and we help clients build and protect things, like small businesses, a great business idea, a family’s income and assets, etc.
I am a hotrod enthusiast. I love the classic cars and the muscle cars from 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. My father and I recently saved a 1950 long bed Chevy pick-up truck and turned it into a very loud, very fast and very cool hot rod. My five year old son named the truck “Blue Thunder.” He thinks it is a transformer!
