“When I needed legal advice in labor matters Julie Springer and Matt Wood came highly recommended by their peers. They were indeed as good as their reputation: very professional and by the same token empathetic and a pleasure to work with.”

- WSH Client

Clients can always count on Matt to give honest, considered advice and put their interests first. In each and every case, he strives to develop a cost-effective strategy that meets his clients’ goals. He is proud to have earned the trust of clients who come back to him for advice when they face new legal challenges. Matt is also an experienced negotiator who is equally adept at avoiding litigation as winning litigation when it is filed. Clients often call him before a lawsuit is filed to help resolve brewing disputes and avoid escalation. Success is not defined for him as simply filing or winning lawsuits, but rather by meeting the needs of his clients.

Prior to joining Weisbart Springer Hayes, Matt was an attorney at Baker Botts LLP.
