WHAT SETS MATT APART

THE BEST PART OF THE JOB
"Happy clients are probably the best part of my job. I strive to provide a high level of accessibility to my clients, whether that’s getting back to them as quickly as possible, making sure they have a full understanding of the issues at hand, or just not making the law more complicated than it needs to be. I enjoy working and connecting with people and making sure they come away with positive experiences."
ACTIVE WITHIN THE COMMUNITY
A proud new Hamiltonian, Matt balances his free time between hiking the trails with his Spanish mastiff Atticus and playing golf, squash, tennis, hockey, and volleyball. He also volunteers as a mock trial team coach with the Ontario Justice Education Network.
