Matt started with us full-time in December of 2020, and became licensed to practice law in November of 2022. He received his Bachelor’s at the University of Maryland, College Park, and his Juris Doctor at the the University of Baltimore School of Law. A strong desire for hands-on, practical experience led Matt to take his coursework in the evenings while clerking for Baltimore-area law firms during the day. He also served as a staff editor on the school’s Law Review journal, and worked with the Maryland State Bar Association’s Publications Division providing substantive edits and conducting legal research for new editions to legal textbooks. 

Matt gained a deep interest in Trusts and Estates Law during his first-year of law school, and has not looked back since. He deeply enjoys assisting families in need, and strives to guide you through your Probate process as smoothly as possible. 

Matt has lived in the Frederick area for over 24 years, and has a deep connection with the city/county. He spends his free time with his wife, Danielle, his family, plays in a local trivia league, and is an avid Baltimore Ravens fan.
