Matt has successfully represented clients in the United States Supreme Court, the Michigan Supreme Court, several federal courts of appeals, and the Michigan Court of Appeals.

Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians v. Patchak, 132 S. Ct. 2199 (2012).

Matt’s appellate experience includes submitting amicus curiae briefs in the state and federal courts including briefs on behalf of the State of Michigan, the Defense Research Institute, the Coalition of Christian Colleges and Universities, the Michigan Defense Trial Counsel, and the Michigan Health & Hospital Association.

Matt’s legal accomplishments have not gone unnoticed.
