Clients don’t call Matt when they have good news. They call Matt when they are facing difficult circumstances, when their careers and businesses are on the line, because Matt is the guy they want in their corner. His ability to empathize and understand is the cornerstone of his strong client relationships.
Matt is an advocate for doctors, nurses and hospitals. As a member of the firm’s Health Care Practice Group, he defends against medical negligence and institutional liability issues.
When he isn’t in the office or hanging out with his wife and dog, Matt works with students at the University of Chicago, advising on academics and student life, and implementing programming to foster leadership development and community building.
