Matthew Overpeck is an associate attorney in the Port St. Lucie office of Steinger, Greene & Feiner. Since being admitted in Florida as an attorney, Matthew has passionately fought for his clients and achieved successful outcomes in a variety of legal matters.
Matthew began his legal career as an appellate attorney at the Office of the Public Defender in Polk County, Florida. There, he won several criminal appeals for his clients. Matthew is particularly proud of an appeal he argued before the Second District Court of Appeal and ultimately won. In the reported decision, A.P. v. State, 250 So. 3d 799 (Fla. 2d DCA 2018), the court reversed Matthew’s client’s conviction for being a minor in possession of a firearm. The conviction was reversed on the grounds that the client’s confession should not have been admitted at trial.
Matthew has also worked as Staff Counsel for GEICO in Tampa, Florida. There, he defended hundreds of lawsuits from medical providers, aggressively negotiated settlements, and learned some of the tricks of the insurance trade.
Matthew is working for Steinger, Greene & Feiner because he desired to get back in the fight for individuals who need legal help during the difficult times of dealing with a personal injury. He understands that it is vital to have an attorney in your corner that you can trust.
Matthew is licensed to practice in the State of Florida and in the District of Columbia. He holds a Juris Doctor from the City University of New York School of Law and a Bachelor of Science from Florida State University.
During law school, Matthew pursued as much legal experience as possible. He had the privilege of working for two great civil court judges: the Hon. Diccia T. Pineda-Kirwan and the Hon. Eileen N. Nadelson. Matthew interned for the personal injury firm of Tanya Gendleman in Brooklyn, New York, where he assisted in negotiating settlements for clients. As a student, Matthew also interned as an assistant for criminal defense attorney Joseph Murray. He received an Equal Justice Works Scholarship to work for the New York Legal Assistance Group. There, he represented individuals being sued by credit card companies and worked to have their lawsuits successfully dismissed.
