Mathew J. Morton has been a key member of our asbestos/mesothelioma practice group since 2009. He represents clients who have suffered injuries as a result of exposure to asbestos and other toxic substances, including coke oven emissions and coal tar pitch. Matt has also worked on FELA cases, automobile accidents and general personal injury cases.

Matt is an important part of the trial team at Lipsitz & Ponterio, and he has obtained over $25 million dollars on behalf of the firm’s clients.

“I have represented the victims of asbestos exposure since 2009. During this time, I have seen first-hand what corporate greed and indifference to human life has done to the hard-working families of Western New York. The people we represent were poisoned by the asbestos companies that had the knowledge and expertise to protect them. It is an honor to represent these families as they stand up for themselves, and others like them, against this injustice.”

Prior to joining Lipsitz & Ponterio, Matt worked at another law firm representing individuals in their claims for workers’ compensation. He received his B.A. in History from the State University of New York at Buffalo and his law degree from SUNY at Buffalo Law School. Matt was selected as an Upstate New York Rising Star by Super Lawyers in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
