Matt is an associate in the Firm’s Employee Benefits practices. After graduating magna cum laude from Duke Law School, Matt served as a law clerk to the Honorable Rosemary Barkett on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.

Before joining Block and Leviton, Matt practiced at nationally recognized plaintiffs’ firms based in Washington, D.C., and Seattle, Washington, where his practice concentrated on antitrust and employee benefits cases. Matt collaborated with R. Joe Barton in Severstal Wheeling, Inc. Retirement Committee et al. v. WPN Corp., et. al. (2d. Circuit). As part of a two-attorney trial team, they won a $15 million judgment on behalf of thousands of retired steelworkers. Matt has valuable experience serving as lead associate in a myriad of successful litigation, ranging from cases where military veterans were wrongfully denied long-term disability benefits (Bush v. Liberty Life Assurance Co. of Boston et. al. (N.D. Cal.)), to nationally-contested issues of federal pension regulation (Kaplan v. Saint Peter’s Healthcare System, et. al. (3d Circuit)).
