Matthew Lastrapes is a founding partner of CLG. He has dedicated his legal career to helping victims of injustice. After graduating Cum Laude from Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert School of Law in 2008, he chose to begin his career at the New Orleans District Attorney’s Office. During his 3 1/2 year tenure with the D.A.’s office, he successfully tried numerous jury and judge trials and helped to bring closure to crime victims.
Moving to Richmond, Virginia in May 2012, Matt now uses his experience learned in his criminal trials to assist accident victims by diligently and aggressively pursuing their claims. While he believes that most problems can be solved through dialogue and good-faith negotiation, Matt also understands that sometimes negotiations fail and litigation becomes necessary. When this happens, his familiarity in a court room serves his clients well.
