Matt joins Houtchens, Greenfield & Sedlak after practicing in the Arapahoe County and Weld County District Attorneys’ Offices from 2003 – 2012. While working as a prosecutor Matt distinguished himself for his analytical abilities and trial skills, which eventually led to him being assigned to significant white-collar crimes, mortgage fraud, and other complex financial crimes. He has litigated numerous felony trials, including co-chairing the first Weld County conviction for organized crime in mortgage fraud. Additionally, Matt has prosecuted many different types of crimes including murders, sex assaults, crimes against children, internet crimes, drug trafficking, and serious assaults. Since 2008 Matt has worked closely with numerous police agencies on the Northern Regional Lab Group working to combining the forensic disciplines (DNA, fingerprints, video/audio/computer examination, chemistry, and others) of numerous agencies into one scientific laboratory group. From 2011 to 2012, he was President of that board. The Colorado Welfare Fraud Council recognized Matt as the “Prosecutor of the Year” in 2009 for his outstanding work.

Massie, 2003 WL 21906114 (10th Cir. 2003). Matt graduated in the top 18% of his class and served as a staff editor and general editor of the Denver University Law Review, in which he also authored The Death of a Doctrine: The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals and Random Suspicionless Urine Drug Tests Eroding the “Special Needs Doctrine,” 79 Den.
