Matthew A. Kezhaya
Matt Kezhaya primarily practices complex litigation. Litigation is fighting about something in court. Complex litigation is when the fight is complicated. Sometimes it's the facts; sometimes it's the law. Sometimes it's both. When Matt is involved, the stakes are always high.
Matt's unfair advantage is his dedication and resilience. By refusing to accept trial losses, Matt has developed a reputation for being "the appeals guy" in Northwest Arkansas. Appeals are a chance to turn a trial loss into a win. Appeals are hard to win because the system doesn't want to keep hearing and rehearing cases. Matt wins appeals. Attorneys and governments send clients to Matt when the stakes are at their highest.
Some examples of Matt's appellate victories include:
After hours, Matt volunteers at the Bentonville Library Foundation, the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association, and the Arkansas Bar Association.
Matt earned his JD from the University of Arkansas School of Law. Prior to law school, he obtained a BS in Organizational Management with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship and a minor in Economics from the Walton College of Business.
