Matt focuses his practice on construction, real estate disputes, and contract litigation, with an emphasis on construction contracting, landlord/tenant matters, and breach of contract and real property litigation. He grew up in Central Florida and in the construction industry as his father was a commercial contractor. As an attorney he first practiced as a criminal prosecutor, then spent time in real estate development, before joining Mateer Harbert, P.A. in 2007, which became part of Dinsmore in 2023.
