Matthew is a second generation Attorney. Some of his first memories were making forts out of file boxes and typing gibberish memos on one of typewriters at his father’s firm. He was born and raised in Myrtle Beach, SC and is a 14th generation Charlestonian on his mother’s side. These traits give him a unique expertise in handling cases throughout the Lowcountry and Grand Strand, and indeed why Matthew picked the name “Lowcountry Law” for his firm.
Matthew graduated from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. While at The Citadel Matthew was on the Dean’s List, a member of the Beta Beta Beta Biology Honors Society, Bond Volunteer, Member of the Honor Committee, and an officer on 4th Battalion Staff. Matthew is also a Life Member of The Citadel’s Theta Commission of Kappa Alpha Order and a member of The Loyal Order.

Merkel, a Pupil of the James L. Petigru Inn of Court, and the Associate Justice for External Competitions for the Charleston School of Law’s Moot Court Board.
After Matthew graduated from Law School, he passed the South Carolina Bar with a score that ranked in the top 1% of scores nationally and enabled Matthew to practice in over 37 States and Territories. In addition to South Carolina, Matthew is also admitted to the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of South Carolina, and North Carolina.
When not zealously advocating for his clients, Matthew loves to till his extensive garden. A fun fact is that he makes his own Peach Habanero hot sauce. He also is an avid genealogist.

Among other groups he is also a member of the Society of the Cincinnati and the Huguenot Society of South Carolina.
