Professional Background

Prior to joining HPS, Matt was a member of the Labor & Employment Unit of the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, where he was responsible for defending employment discrimination lawsuits filed against Cook County and its elected officials. Matt’s diverse case load allowed him to practice in both federal and state court, as well as try several cases before the Illinois Labor Relations Board and the Cook County Sheriff’s Merit Board.

While in law school, Matt gained valuable insight into the judicial decision-making process by completing judicial externships at the trial court level for the Honorable Sharon Ovington, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, and at the appellate court level for the Honorable Mike Fain, Court of Appeals for the Second District of Ohio.

In addition, as a law student, Matt was able to try cases using his 711 license in the Felony Trial Division of the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, where he tried a felony narcotics case and argued motions to quash arrest.

During law school, Matt was a member of the Moot Court team for two years and won the Walter H. Rice Intraschool Moot Court Competition. Matt also received a CALI Award in his Appellate Advocacy course, and was selected as an Appellate Advocacy Teaching Assistant. He was one of five students to receive the Order of the Barristers Award, which is awarded to only a select few who excel in oral advocacy.
