Matthew J. Edwards

  • Profile

Matt is the paralegal, office manager, billing department and all-around one man team unto himself with respect to the firm. He employs a philosophy learned and honed over his years as a Journeyman with the Local 3 of the I.B.E.W., “Whatever it takes.” Matt takes very seriously the responsibility of assisting in bringing all the firm’s cases to a successful conclusion.

Matt brings over a decade’s worth of NYC work experience in the Building Trades, along with the preparation, planning, and performance necessary to get the job done for the clients. Matt attends Empire State College and is in his senior year pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Labor Studies. As a card carrying member of one of the largest and most powerful Unions in the country (and world), Matt is extremely active in the labor movement and is a steadfast advocate for workers’ rights.

Following his graduation from Empire State, Matt intends to apply to law school and pursue his NYS Law License. When not assisting with the firm’s caseload, you can find Matt on his Peloton or learning to play some new obscure board game he purchased and endlessly harassing Ken and Pete to play with him, which they won’t do. Because one can only be so nerdy.
