Matthew K. Graham is a commercial litigator who assists clients in all phases of the litigation process, from crafting pleadings and motions to vigorously preparing for trial.

Prior to joining McNees, and during law school, Matthew worked at Baltimore-area law firms, drafting litigation and settlement materials, propounding and answering discovery and preparing litigation strategies for administrative hearings in front of the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission and Circuit Courts in Maryland. He also filed cases with the Workers’ Compensation Commission, as well as workers’ compensation appeals on the Maryland Court System’s MDEC online portal. He has handled motor vehicle and product liability complaints in both Maryland and DC.

Matthew graduated with honors and seventh in his class from the University of Baltimore School of Law’s evening program a semester early while working full-time. Through his work as a Rule 19-220 student attorney with the Immigrant Justice Clinic, he assisted a man and his wife in obtaining visas to stay in the U.S. Matthew’s joyful reaction when he learned he passed the Maryland Bar Exam was captured on video ­­– it went viral on social media and was featured by national news media.

When Matthew is not helping his clients, he enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter and extended family. He supports several charities, including Joy to the World Charities, an organization founded by Matthew’s father that provides computers, books and school supplies to several schools in Ghana. He is also a brother of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., where he continues to volunteer and perform community work around the Baltimore area and beyond. Matthew is an avid public speaker who appreciates opportunities to motivate youth and aspiring lawyers.
