Serving and living locally

Matt started his professional life as police officers and spent over a decade serving the community. Police work is highly varied and challenging, which has equipped him well to deal with difficult and fast moving situations. There’s nothing like life experience to give you the strength of character to help people through difficult situations, and for us, our original careers were influential. The empathy and ability to cut through purely emotional responses to help our clients in the most effective way was certainly developed over these early years.

Having families on the Gold Coast and being so ingrained in the local community also means that as a firm, we are dedicated to responding quickly, efficiently and effectively. This dedication drives our firm, as we know that we can provide a level of service above and beyond what others do, and serve the Gold Coast community as best we can.

The Start of MCG Legal

Having started in practice and made his way to partner at another firm, Matt went out on his own in 2009 and founded MCG Legal. Being the height of the GFC, that year was tumultuous for lots of reasons. However, Matt was determined to create a firm that could serve clients on the Gold Coast and grow into something to be proud of. Over the last decade, Matt has grown MCG Legal into a values-driven legal services business, focused on providing clear, pragmatic and high-quality advice to the people of South East Queensland.

Very few people start a business during the biggest economic upheaval in a generation, but Matt was able to ride that out and grow the firm to its present 14 team members. MCG Legal is a practice known for servicing clients on the Gold Coast and Brisbane but also throughout Queensland and the eastern seaboard of Australia.

A big part of the firms growth has been its ability to retain great people and create a culture of respect and flexibility. Family is a huge factor for all our lawyers and team, so we put family first for all of our staff. Ultimately, we set out to create an environment we could be proud of, and our “family first” attitude is an important aspect of creating this environment.

Why are we different?

We are, at our heart, a local Gold Coast practice built on local values. This extends well beyond work. For instance Matt is heavily involved in sporting clubs such as Mudgeeraba Nerang Cricket Club. As locals we understand, on a deeper level, the problems that our clients face. Our mix of legal expertise and personal experience is unique on the Gold Coast, and means that we can relate to and understand our clients on a level that others cannot.
