Matthew was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula in Iron Mountain, Michigan. He was a three-sport athlete at Iron
Mountain High School, where he was a Michigan state champion tennis player and an all-state wrestler. He earned his
undergraduate degree at Michigan State University, where he obtained a B.A. in Finance and graduated with highest
honors. He then attended Indiana University School of Law in Bloomington, Indiana. Matthew graduated from law
school in 2006 with cum laude distinction and is licensed to practice law in Arizona, California, Indiana and Michigan.
Matthew began his legal career in Indianapolis, Indiana, at Price
Waicukauski Joven & Catlin, LLC, a nationally recognized firm that
represents clients in complex plaintiff-side litigation matters. While there,
he was instrumental in handling cases that included Medicare anti-
kickback law, intra-corporate disputes and toxic tort litigation. Matthew
continued with his education and earned his M.B.A. with highest honors
from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. There, he was
awarded a Dean’s Fellowship and full academic scholarship.
After receiving his M.B.A., Matthew joined the law practice of Gambs,
Mucker & Bauman in Lafayette, Indiana, where he was in charge of the
litigation department. In that position, Matthew represented plaintiffs in
the areas of personal injury, commercial litigation and probate disputes.
During that time, Matthew successfully tried numerous cases, first chair,
to the bench and a jury.
In 2014, Matthew moved to southern California. He passed the California bar exam and began working as of counsel
for Scottsdale Injury Lawyers in Arizona and Piccuta Law Group in Monterey, California. His practice consisted of
handling serious personal injury matters, consumer class actions, and civil rights cases involving law enforcement
misconduct and prisoner mistreatment.
Taking his knowledge and experience with him, Matthew returned to the Upper Peninsula to start his own practice,
specializing in personal injury and wrongful death cases. He passed on other opportunities, because he believed that
he could bring a more personal and committed touch to a place he has always considered home.
Outside of his law practice, Matthew enjoys playing tennis and golf, spending time with friends and family, including
his dog, Irish, and following his favorite sports teams, including the Green Bay Packers and the Fighting Irish of Notre
