Matthew was born in New Orleans, LA and lived in Louisiana, Georgia, and Texas as a child. He spent the majority of his childhood in Corpus Christi, Texas, where he graduated from Calallen High School. He now resides in Lubbock, Texas with his wife and three children.

Matthew attended Texas A&M University where he was a member of the Corps of Cadets. Matthew received a double-major bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M and then went on to obtain a Master’s Degree in Education. Matthew firmly believes that his training and experience in the classroom gives him a unique edge in educating the jury about his client’s cases.

Matthew attended law school at the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law. Despite maintaining a full-time job while in law school and competing against students that were not working at all, Matthew maintained high grades and was ultimately invited to serve as a member of the SMU Law Review Association. This is an honor reserved for the highest performing members of the law school class. In his final year, Matthew was chosen to serve as articles editor for the SMU Law Review.

Matthew graduated with honor from SMU Law School in 2013 and immediately joined Faddoul, Cluff, Hardy & Conaway. Since that time, Matthew has handled many cases for the firm, including cases with values in excess of a million dollars. Matthew has also tried numerous cases to verdict, giving him the skills needed to maximize his client’s recoveries. Matthew is proud to represent the injured and to work with some of the most skilled and ethical attorneys in the business.
