In 1978, Matt completed his studies and took an Arts/Law Degree from the University of Sydney Law School. For the following 44 years Matt used those skills to build a rewarding and demanding career as a Litigator and Commercial Lawyer, cementing friendships and forging alliances within the Legal Profession which have lasted to the present day.
Gibson Howlin Lawyers has evolved since 1991 under the guidance of Reg Gibson and Matt to now stand as one of the most respected and professional Law firms in suburban Sydney. The decision to retire from legal practice on 1 July 2022 was made easier for Matt by handing over control to his skilled fellow Directors Jason Green and Jodie Jamieson, and with all of the Firm’s loyal staff remaining. The future is assured.
Matt will enter a fresh phase of life with fond memories of all our loyal Clients, our talented Lawyers and those quite wonderful Secretaries he was fortunate to have over the years. The choices Matt made more than four decades past were right, and the decision to leave this most honourable of Professions at this time is also the right one. As he leaves the Law Matt gives thanks and good wishes for health and happiness to all those who took the journey with him.
