Possessing law degrees from Hofstra University School of Law and Temple University School of Law, Matthew Slocum’s talent for litigation was evident from the outset of his career. He began practicing law with large prestigious firms in Philadelphia and New York, then in 2009 brought this wealth of experience home to Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Upon cofounding The Slocum Firm, Matthew placed an emphasis on seeking out cases where his defense of clients’ rights had compounding impact beyond an individual case, thereby positively affecting the lives/health of the greater community. A powerful example of the realization of this focus, was Matthew’s appointment to the Tronox Tort Claim Trust Advisory Committee. As a member, he oversees the distribution of $5.15 billion dollars in damages to citizens of the region
