Matt Palentchar

It is true that Matt Palentchar’s current law firm, Matthew G. Palentchar, PLLC in St. Petersburg, Florida, focuses on real estate transactions and property law. He specializes in real estate transactions and property law, but he also performs routine real estate work, like title searches, title exams, and issuing title insurance for residential and commercial closings at the same time he represents hundreds of lenders, purchasers and sellers in complex commercial transactions.

All of that represents quite a departure from the time when Matt Palentchar grew up in Colonia, NJ, he played sports with his friends. Back then, he likely had no idea where his career would go. These days, Matt Palentchar is considered a very accomplished lawyer with more than a decade of experience under his belt. He has a lot of education; following high school, Matt earned a B.A. in political science from Rutgers University-New Brunswick and then a law degree from Ohio Northern University. Following law school, Matt moved to Florida, like many people living in the cold, white north, and passed that state’s bar exam.
