Matt grew up Bowling Green, Kentucky and attended college at Miami University on a partial athletic scholarship. During his Junior year at Miami, Matt took a Business Law course that was taught by a local attorney. It was by far the most interesting course that Matt took in college and laid the foundation for his eventual career in the law. After graduating from Miami with a degree in Accounting and a minor in Political Science, Matt attended the University of Kentucky College of Law. During his third year of law school, Matt worked in the College of Law Legal Clinic, where he handled a number of pro bono cases for clients that couldn’t afford to pay a lawyer. Much of the work involved litigation of civil disputes and piqued his interest in civil litigation and trial work.

Matt obtained his law degree in 2005 and returned to Bowling Green to begin practicing law at a well-respected local firm. During his eight years at that firm, Matt handled a wide variety of cases, ranging from commercial litigation to insurance defense to representing plaintiffs in personal injury and wrongful death claims. Matt gravitated toward representing individuals that were harmed or killed through no fault of their own. He loved helping those clients and found it much more rewarding than the other work he had done.

In 2013, Matt joined his friend and law partner Brian Lowder to found Lowder & McGill, PLLC. Their firm was founded on the principle of aggressive representation of their client’s interest. Matt enjoys the challenge of obtaining justice for his clients, whether it be in reaching a fair settlement or taking the case to trial.

Matt feels that it is his responsibility to give back to the community whenever possible. He is a former member of several civic organizations and has served as a board member for several charitable organizations, including service as President for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of South Central KY, an advocacy group that seeks to protect abused and neglected children. Matt and his wife Amy have two beautiful daughters, Vivienne and Susanna.
