When one sets out to be an attorney, they typically already understand that a lengthy investment in education will be required. Matthew Palentchar has always wanted a career that both helps people as well as allows him the time to be active and spend time with his family during his off time. The particular field of law that he pursued, and now works in, met all of these desires.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Matthew Palentchar loved being a part of his community. It was during this that time that he developed a love for being active. In New Jersey, he played baseball, basketball, football as well as soccer in established leagues and simply for fun with his friends during his childhood. Once he graduated from High School, he went to Rutgers University - New Brunswick to earn his Bachelor’s of Arts in Political Science. The work he did in his undergraduate showed the scholarship board that he was a student that was dedicated to his education. When he went on to Ohio Northern University he had an all expenses paid scholarship and then earned his Juris Doctorate. While he began his legal career in Florida, he still looks back fondly on his childhood in New Jersey and the education that lead him to be ready for his now career in law which includes running his own firm.

It’s difficult to argue against the idea that Florida real estate lawyer Matt Palentchar has come a long way since he grew up in Colonia, NJ playing sports like baseball, basketball, football and soccer. Following his graduation from high school, Matt Palentchar earned a B.A. in political science from Rutgers University-New Brunswick and then he received a scholarship to attend Ohio Northern University, where he earned his Juris Doctor. Following law school, Matt decided he wanted to move to Florida, so he did so.

These days, Matt spends most of his time practicing as a highly accomplished Florida lawyer. So far, he has more than a dozen years of legal experience under his belt and his clients appreciate the work he does for them. He passed the Florida Bar exam in 2004, at which point he began practicing with a general practice law firm in Naples, Florida. That didn’t last long, however; he practiced in real estate and estate planning, as well as civil, criminal and business law, but the law firm life didn’t appeal to him, so he went off on his own to form Matthew G. Palentchar, Esq., P.A., a firm he ran until 2010, when a terrible illness forced him out of Florida for a time.

Thankfully, he is naturally tough, so Matt Palentchar was able to fight back and return to Florida within a short time, feeling more focused than ever. That’s when he formed Matthew G. Palentchar, PLLC in St. Petersburg, Florida, where he continues to practice law and lives with his wife Heather and their two dogs.
