Matt Coleman has been licensed to practice law in California since 1996. He first started representing clients while a second-year law student at Santa Clara University School of Law, appearing in court on behalf of the East San Jose Community Law Center (now the Katherine and George Alexander Community Law Center), which was established to help those who lacked the financial resources to access the protections afforded them by law.
After law school, Matt joined Reynolds Price Casas & Riley in Los Altos and later became a partner with Price Law Firm, specializing in real estate law while also assisting clients with trust and business litigation, as well as transactional matters such as leases, real estate purchase contracts, notes and deeds of trust, and corporate and LLC formation. In addition to representing clients at trial in state and federal courts, Matt has enjoyed a good deal of success arguing cases on appeal on behalf of both appellants and respondents, and, additionally, advocating for clients before government tribunals.
Matt typically represents clients in Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, and Santa Cruz counties, but he has represented clients as far north as Mendocino County and as far south as Los Angeles County.
Matt has lived in Santa Cruz County since 2003, and in 2018 he opened his solo practice in Capitola while still maintaining an office in Los Altos. He has maintained his commitment to serving his community, volunteering as a judge pro tem in Santa Clara County Superior Court, and serving as an arbitrator for the Palo Alto Bar Association’s fee dispute resolution program.
