Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyer

Overview

Matt was the second of five children in the house and learned from a young age to independent and that he would have to work for anything he wanted. After graduating high school, Matt attended Indiana State University where he received his bachelor's degree in Social Science Education with cum laude honors in 2005. While at Indiana State, Matt was encouraged by a professor to consider graduate school and enrolled at Purdue University where he earned his MA in Political Science in 2007. Matt finished his education at the Indiana University McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis. While at McKinney, Matt interned with the Indiana State Senate minority counsel's office and with the Marion County Prosecutor's office where he was assigned to the Sex Crimes Division.

After being admitted to the Bar in 2010, Matt began his career as a deputy prosecutor in Warrick County, Indiana where he prosecuted various misdemeanor and felony offenses. He stayed in Warrick Co. for eight months until he was able to return to Indianapolis and take a position with the Marion Co. Prosecutor's Office. Over his five years with the Marion County Prosecutor's Office, Matt spent the majority of his time prosecuting OVWI cases. His final two years as a deputy prosecutor were as the Fatal Alcohol Crash Team prosecutor. As the FACT prosecutor, Matt was the sole deputy prosecutor responsible for prosecuting all fatal traffic crashes in Indianapolis. Matt was involved in cases from their investigation at the scene of the crash all the way to sentencing In addition to dozens of jury trials before he was the FACT prosecutor, Matt was able to take ten FACT cases to jury trial and see that the victims of these crimes received justice. Five years in a very specific and specialized area of law has also given Matt a strong background in the pharmacology and toxicology of alcohol and controlled substances, crash reconstruction, and the fundamentals of how law enforcement agencies investigate these cases. Matt was able to see firsthand the devastating effects of motor vehicle accidents and how the families of the victims struggle for it all to make sense. When deciding to leave the prosecutor's office, Matt wanted to apply what he had learned and continue to help those harmed by another's poor decisions or negligence.

Matt lives in Indianapolis with his wife, Sarah, and his two children, Eloise and Archie. He enjoys doing projects around his house and spending time with his family. He is licensed to practice before the Indiana Supreme Court as well as the Northern and Southern Districts of the United States District Courts of Indiana.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
