After completing an undergraduate degree at Appalachian State University, Matthew D. Quinn graduated among the top of his class from Campbell University School of Law in 2009. During law school, Matt served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Campbell Law Review, spearheading the publication of several journals and managing a major symposium entitled “Practical Issues in Health Law.” He also participated in several moot court competitions, winning awards for his skill as an oral advocate. Upon graduation, Matt was honored to receive the Robert A. Jenkins Award and to join the Order of Barristers, both the result of his outstanding performance in the art of advocacy.
Since joining the firm, Matt has worked almost exclusively as a litigator in the trial and appellate courts of this state. His caseload is maintained at a level that allows him to provide the most aggressive, but professional, representation to each of his clients. Matt’s practice is diverse – he represents individuals and businesses in cases ranging from relatively minor motor vehicle accidents, to catastrophic personal injury, medical malpractice, property contamination, product liability, complex business disputes, zoning disputes, construction defects, and any other matter that involves litigation. Matt also has experience in a wide range of venues, running from jury-trial experience in Superior Court to the North Carolina Court of Appeals to the Utilities Commission, among others.
The firm is proud of Matt’s record. Recently he represented a woman who received a failed tubal ligation surgery. In a suit against the hospital, the case settled for six-figures. In another case, Matt represented a client in a lawsuit against a bank involving complex business transactions and allegations of fraud. Matt successfully prevented a criminal prosecution of the case. The matter settled, with Matt’s client obtaining a large settlement. Matt also recently settled a products liability case. His client was badly injured and needed a painful, expensive surgery. Matt negotiated on his client’s behalf a settlement in the six-figure range.
Matt has garnered media attention for his legal representation, working with a group of property owners in a high-profile zoning dispute that is frequently in the news. Moreover, he recently received nationwide news coverage for successfully arguing that an anti-speech statute in North Carolina is unconstitutional.
Matt enjoys volunteering in his community. He has taught several Continuing Legal Education courses, is a member of the Membership and Networking Committee for the Young Lawyers Division, and has served as a coach for moot court teams at Campbell University. Matt regularly handles pro bono cases for Legal Aid of North Carolina. He is also a member of the American Bar Association, the North Carolina Bar Association, and the North Carolina Advocates for Justice. He is, of course, admitted to practice law in North Carolina. In his spare time, Matt enjoys going out to dinner with his wife and golfing with his friends.
