An unconventional path brought Matt into the legal profession.
During law school, Matt worked at UPS (from approximately 2:30 – 8:00 a.m. 5 days each week). He wanted to work into the UPS corporate legal department. Thus, after taking and passing the bar exam, Matt drove a UPS package car. Unfortunately, his hopes were dashed when he found out UPS only hired attorneys with specific skills UPS needs and would only hire established attorneys.
Because Matt was concerned about the perception of dishonesty surrounding lawyers, he continued driving a package car. After driving for one year, a respected family friend told Matt that if he ran his own law firm, he could be as honest and ethical as wanted to be. That family friend also explained that the legal profession needed men like Matt who are honest and ethical. Soon thereafter, Matt hung a shingle and started his own law firm. That firm now has nine attorneys and five offices around the state of Arizona.
