A confident and methodical advocate, Matthew takes a practical and strategic approach in order to advance his clients’ interests, including those facing sensitive and high-stakes disputes. His practice encompasses a broad range of areas, including insurance and personal injury claims involving motor vehicle liability, statutory accident benefits, occupiers' liability, commercial general liability, professional liability, construction and property defects, manufacturers' and product liability, provincial offences, landlord/tenant, intellectual property, torts, and breach of contract disputes.

Additionally, Matthew believes in accessible justice and has spent hundreds of hours representing pro bono clients, in order to safeguard the rights of under-resourced individuals and groups. He continues to act as amicus duty counsel through Pro-Bono Ontario.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Matthew’s work experience involved him in the technology, oil and gas, aerospace, construction, risk management, and entertainment industries; he understands the pressures leaders face and how best to strategically guide them in their legal concerns.
