Matt Ameer  - Attorney at Law in Medina County Ohio
Phone:   (330) 725-0531
Location:   325 N. Broadway Medina, Ohio 44256
Matt obtained his undergraduate degree from Kent State University in May, 2007, where he double majored in English & Philosophy.  Thereafter he attended law school at the University of Toledo, where he earned his juris doctor.  He then passed the Ohio Bar Examination and formally entered the legal profession in Ohio.  
While studying for the bar exam and shortly thereafter, Matt worked in the civil division of the Medina County Prosecutors Office under former prosecutor Dean Holman.  There he assisted the civil prosecutors in a variety of matters, including: zoning planning and enforcement, creating or revising internal policies and procedures for various county offices, contract review, collections, legal research, writing legal opinions for township trustees, and litigation support for a variety of matters.
Matt started his own law practice based in Medina County in June, 2013, representing clients throughout northeast Ohio and other parts of the state.  The scope of his practice included:  criminal, juvenile, traffic defense; landlord–tenant disputes; various civil and business litigation; step–parent adoptions; divorce and dissolution; and, juvenile custody litigation (both as attorney for the parents and as guardian ad litem for the children).
In May, 2017, Matt joined Laribee & Hertrick, LLP as an associate attorney.  Matt continues to focus on the same practice areas however, he has extended his experience in various civil and business litigation matters, personal injury, and domestic relations (divorce and custody). 
Over time, Matt has developed knowledge and experience in representing and advising individuals about firearms use/possession, licensing, and compliance.  He has also developed the more specific skill of record rehabilitation: helping individuals seal or expunge their criminal records or gain certificates of qualification for employment.  This is an area of law that many people mistake as universally simple.  Matt recognizes that to rehabilitate a person’s record correctly and efficiently requires great attention to detail.  He has been successful in this regard many times, including in complicated cases which were contested.
Matt thoroughly enjoys motion hearings, writing briefs, trials, and the many aspects of vigorous litigation.  However, he strongly believes that the client’s legal and economic goals should always take precedence over a lawyer’s desire to litigate.  In other words, it’s not about the attorney – it’s all about the client.  Matt has been a Medina resident since the age of six.
