Matt Halpin is an experienced trial attorney who has handled everything from fatal car accidents to billion-dollar antitrust lawsuits. Matt believes in a comprehensive yet balanced approach to handling client matters. Matt is able to work well with opposing parties and attorneys to the benefit of his clients, but he never hesitates to use aggressive tactics when necessary.

Matt graduated from The University of Texas in 2011, having studied both medicine and law. Before beginning law school, he worked at a mass tort personal injury firm as the lead paralegal assisting clients injured by toxic medications and defective medical devices. He then graduated cum laude from the University of Houston Law Center, where he centered his studies on litigation and healthcare law. In 2015, Matt was one of only two law students to have a research article published in the Houston Journal of Health Law & Policy, where he later served as a chief editor. During law school, he also clerked for a trial judge with the Harris County District Courts, allowing him to witness a wide variety of trials and pick up on winning strategies. 

Prior to joining Armstrong Lee & Baker LLP, Matt practiced for several years as an in-house trial attorney for a major automobile insurance company. This experience gave him valuable insight into the inner workings of the insurance industry and how claims are evaluated. He now uses this experience and knowledge to ensure his client’s claims are fairly valued by insurance adjusters to obtain favorable results.  Matt skillfully cuts through the bureaucratic processes that insurance companies use to deny just compensation.

Matt is admitted to the state bars of Texas and California, as well as the federal courts in Texas.
