Matt Powell has been protecting injured victims and their families in the Tampa Bay area for over 30 years.

He is dual Board Certified as a Civil Trial Lawyer by The Florida Bar and National Board of Trial Advocacy.

At his firm MattLaw, he handles cases involving car crashes, trucking crashes, medical malpractice, motorcycle crashes, wrongful death, bicycle crashes, negligent security, products liability, and many other types of injury cases.

Matt first practiced law with a well-known defense firm in Tallahassee that represented over 20 insurance companies, negligent drivers and doctors.

During that time, Matt learned the techniques insurance companies use to decrease the amount of money they pay injured or dead victims in negligence or accident cases.

Shortly thereafter, Matt decided to stop helping insurance companies and opened up his own law firm in Tampa to represent injured victims and their families.

Matt has been practicing personal injury law in the historic Hutchinson House landmark building in Hyde Park since 1989.
