Matt was born and raised on his family farm just south of Santa Claus, Indiana. Growing up he participated in baseball, basketball, football, 4-H and Optimist International Oratorical Speech Contests. In the fall of 2010 he enrolled at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. He graduated with High Distinction Honors and a degree in Legal Studies. From there he attended and graduated from the Indiana University Maurer School of Law in 2017 focusing his studies on litigation. In the Fall of 2016 he married his wife Morgan and they currently live in Bloomington, Indiana where she is a nurse at the IU Health Bloomington Hospital.
He joined Watts Law Office in the Spring of 2015 as a law clerk working as Mr. Watts' understudy. After completion of half of his legal studies at the Maurer School of law he became a Certified Legal Intern and began aiding in the preparation and presentation of many of the cases handled by our office. In May of 2017 he took and passed the Indiana Bar Examination and was sworn in on October 16, 2017.
He is now an Associate Attorney in our office and is working toward overseeing all office operations. He and Mr. Watts each have their own case load but routinely consult one another and prefer to take the team approach on all cases to ensure their clients receive the best legal representation possible.
Matt takes great pride in representing the residents of south central Indiana and helping clients through difficult times. He would be more than happy to speak with you and discuss any legal issues you may be currently experiencing. He understands that the legal system can be extremely complex and daunting without the correct guidance and is here to help.
