He has defended a wide range of product liability and catastrophic injury cases, including cases involving industrial and retail products.
Matthew has extensive experience handling complex general liability claims involving major municipalities. He also represents insurance carriers and institutional clients in construction matters and complex issues of indemnification.
In every matter, Matthew draws on his experience as a prosecutor in the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, where he took numerous trials to verdict while handling a vast felony caseload. He secured felony indictments before grand juries encompassing a broad range of crimes, including arson, attempted murder, burglary, grand larceny, weapons possession, and rape. In addition, Matthew conducted multiple homicide investigations and assisted in the presentation of those cases to grand juries.
Matthew successfully defended a church against a personal-injury lawsuit filed by a volunteer who fell from a ladder and fractured her heel while decorating the Epitaphios for Easter. At stake was $750,000, the amount of the plaintiff’s demand. Matthew won the case by persuading an appeals court to reverse a lower court’s decision not to grant their request for summary judgment dismissing the case.
