His practice has also included the representation of employers in liability and casualty litigation with particular emphasis in those involving construction defects.

Our firm encourages the attorneys to participate in pro bono activities.  In a volunteer capacity, Matthew has had the honor of speaking at Missouri Kid’s Chance Seminars, which provides means of educating the children of disabled parents.  He is also a Junior Board member for TASK (Team Activities for Special Kids), an organization that creates an atmosphere where kids with special needs participate in sports and other team-related activities.
