Associate Attorney at Jordan Ramis PC
Originally from South Florida and having spent the last 10 years living in Atlanta, Matthew now lives in Portland, OR with his wife Kathleen, 3 year old daughter Eliana and 8 week old boy Maddox after relocating there in August 2018. Professionally, Matthew is a real estate attorney with over 14 years of experience and is licensed to practice law in six states. His legal practice focuses on transactional real estate, creditor rights, land use, municipality and development law. Having just completed the GLI program, one of the most difficult parts of his move to Portland was accepting that he would no longer be partaking in community events addressing anti-Semitism or injustice with his fellow Southeast GLI classmates and those who graduated before him. However, there is unfortunately much work to do in the Greater Portland area and Pacific Northwest when it comes to those matters and Matthew immediately got involved within the region. He is so excited to be part of this new Alumni Advisory Board to work alongside GLI graduates from across the country in order to build the GLI network and to organize local or regional efforts in support of ADL's mission.
