While in law school Matthew clerked at Alters Law Firm, a boutique “plaintiff’s firm,” and joined the firm after being admitted to the Florida Bar. Working alongside the firm’s senior litigation strategist, Jeremy Alters, Matthew has been a part of billions of dollars in settlements and verdicts. His work has included national class actions and mass torts, as well as catastrophic injury, product liability and medical malpractice actions. A legal researcher and writer at heart, he provides complex litigation strategy and support, and also handles appeals.
Notably, Matthew was a key part of helping to shape and draft the litigation that became In re: Checking Account Overdraft Litigation, which resulted in over $1.3 billion in settlements from dozens of U.S. banks that charged customers unjustified overdraft fees. He was also a key part of shaping and drafting the Florida litigation that became In re: Chinese Manufactured Drywall Product Liability Litigation, which resulted in a $1 billion settlement for thousands of homeowners who unwittingly had defective drywall installed in their homes in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and the mid-2000’s building boom.
In 2014, he was appointed co-class counsel in the Red Bull false advertising class action in the Southern District of New York. Matthew led the oral argument, and the settlement hearing resulted in a $16.4 million total settlement, including an innovative compensation plan that gave the large pool of class members the option to receive a free 4-pack of Red Bull direct from the company.
Thanks to the diversity of his pre-law background, Matthew also helps entrepreneurs and small to mid-sized businesses navigate joint ventures and expansions into new products and territories. He also assists new businesses in navigating the start-up and seed capital process.
Matthew returned to Los Angeles full time in Fall 2018, and passed the notoriously difficult California Bar Exam on his first try, and was admitted to the California Bar in January 2019.
