Matt Munson is a lawyer in Beasley Allen’s Mass Torts Section, handling defective medical device litigation. He is lead lawyer in cases involving Zimmer Biomet’s Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder System. Matt has been with the firm since 2006. He decided to pursue law after finding irregularities in a non-fiction novel while writing a literature paper at Auburn University Montgomery. By making what he says was a long-shot phone call to the author, Matt questioned him until he admitted it was not an entirely first-person account, as he had led everyone to believe. The author told Matt he should think about becoming a lawyer, and, after taking a few pre-law classes, Matt changed his major and then attended Western Michigan University’s Thomas M. Cooley Law School.
Matt said he enjoys the continuous learning curve involved in the practice of law. “I like seeing problems and looking for different ways to solve problems and uncover truths,” he said. “No two cases are exactly alike,” especially in the field of Mass Torts. “We may have 1,000 cases that all have the same Defendant, but it is important to remember that those are 1,000 separate individuals, each with their own stories, each with their own families, and they each were damaged in different ways, because the damage happened to them and was personal to them.” It’s the trust his clients put in Matt to right a wrong that he says makes the job worthwhile. “Ultimately, it is my duty to respect and honor the trust they have placed in me as their lawyer. Solving mysteries to help individuals, so at the end of their case they hug me or send me a note saying we made their life better, makes it all worth it.”
Matt says he believes Beasley Allen is unique because “the firm has maintained itself as a small-town firm, but with a global presence.” He believes “the ability to have all of these specialties and knowledge in house provides the firm with a unique opportunity to help clients in ways most firms cannot.”
Matt is married to the former Katherine Tanner Rees of Montgomery, Alabama. They have two daughters, Anna and Isabella. He is a hardworking lawyer who is dedicated to the cause of his clients. We are most fortunate to have Matt with us.
