He later earned his law degree from Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in 2011. Since passing the bar and entering private law practice over a decade ago, Matthew has represented hundreds of clients in a wide range of high-stakes lawsuits and disputes involving divorce, family law, and contested civil litigation.
