Matthew R. Grieder is an associate attorney at the firm’s Austin, Texas branch office. Matthew’s practice focuses on automobile, maritime, property and casualty, and workers’ compensation subrogation cases throughout Texas and the South Central states of Oklahoma and New Mexico. Matt graduated undergraduate from the University of Texas and received his law degree from St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas. Matt clerked for several Texas firms before litigating at Barnett & Garcia in Austin, as well as Murphy Legal in Austin, where he represented insurance companies in complex construction defect litigation cases.
Matt is particularly fascinated with subrogation because it presents insurance companies the opportunity to recovery money—as opposed to paying claims—provided they recognize and act on it. Matt enjoys assisting MWL’s clients in recognizing and squeezing subrogation recoveries out of fact scenarios involving construction settings and construction defect cases. He believes strongly in preparation and aggressive investigation of subrogation potential on behalf of a client as well as making every effort possible to resolve a matter before suit is filed. His background in construction defect litigation is a huge advantage in subrogating workers’ compensation claims which often involve accidents in construction settings.
