I graduated from University of Texas at Austin and worked in the House of Representatives for the 78th Session of the Texas Legislature. After this I decided to enter law school at University of Texas where I became a mediator. Here I mediated many lawsuits and also worked with several law firms in Austin to gain experience in multiple legal areas. In 2008 I started The Law Office of Matthew Shrum. The Law Office of Matthew Shrum started off as a criminal defense law firm and now we have also started offering personal injury assistance for those looking for an injury attorney in Austin.
“Justice… every person in the criminal justice system is supposed to be bound by a promise to seek justice and not just convictions or convenience. There are times where seeking justice for a client is not convenient, it’s hard and persistent work. I have to grind against a system that doesn’t always want to give into what I believe is justice for my client.”
