Meet Matthew McCabe Engelman Berger’s summer Law Clerk. Matthew graduated from the University of Arizona in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts in Finance and Entrepreneurship. Prior to attending law school at Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, Matthew founded his own company, Loan Resolution Corporation in Scottsdale, Arizona, which provides financial services to the mortgage industry. Over the course of 11 years, Matthew grew the company from zero to over $21M in annual revenue and nearly 300 full time employees. Matthew’s current goal is to become an attorney and focus his practice on real estate, bankruptcy, and commercial litigation. He has worked as a law clerk for a law firm in Phoenix, and served as a Judicial Intern for the Honorable Daniel P. Collins at the United States Bankruptcy Court in Phoenix, Arizona. While working with Engelman Berger this summer as a law clerk, Matthew will have an opportunity to gain exposure to different areas of law such as real estate, bankruptcy and commercial litigation, which will help him further define his legal path for the future. Over the summer, Matthew will be assisting on a wide variety of project assignments and have a chance to work with all the attorneys in our firm, including a number of out-of-office projects and experiences such as attending court hearings, depositions and closings.
Born in Portland, Oregon, Matthew enjoys spending his free time running and participating in other outside activities. He has competed in multiple triathlons and marathons, including the 2014 New York City Marathon. As an Eagle Scout, he is also active in a local Cub Scout troop. Matthew has been honored for his entrepreneurial accomplishments and received multiple award distinctions such as, “40 Most Influential Mortgage Professionals Under 40” by National Mortgage Professional Magazine, Arizona Republic’s “35 Entrepreneur’s under 35,” and “The Most Powerful Locals Age 40 and Under” by So Scottsdale Magazine.
