Matt is a plaintiff's trial lawyer, restricting his practice in the area of Personal Injury Law, Insurance Litigation and Workers' Compensation Law. Matt has often been heard to say, “I’d rather spend a week in a jury trial that a week at the beach.”
A life-long resident of Omaha, Matt received his Law Degree from Creighton University School of Law in 1991. After law school, he worked for a year as a clerk for the Nebraska Supreme Court. From 1992 to 2007, he was an attorney with Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf and Lathrop, P.C. From 2007 to 2015 he was a solo practitioner at the Law Office of Matt Lathrop. He merged his firm with another Omaha trial lawyer, Matt Miller, and together they opened Miller Lathrop in November, 2015.
Matt is a member of the Nebraska State Bar Association; the Nebraska Association of Trial Attorneys; and The American Association for Justice.
He has been elected into the American Board of Trial Advocates, and in 2015 he was elected into the American College of Trial Lawyers, made up of the top 2% of trial lawyers in the country.
In spite of all of this, Matt still mows his own yard; coaches grade-school soccer and must always check the family calendar before promising to speak at meetings or forums.
