about Matthew Rinear

A native of Cincinnati, Matthew’s mid-western values guide his no-nonsense philosophy in in handling all aspects of his clients’ family law issues. Matthew understands that going through a divorce or a custody issue is an intimidating and stressful process. To that end, he believes his job is more than drafting documents and showing up to court proceedings, it’s about guiding each client through his/her unique situation by explaining the process and setting expectations. Matthew is committed to making himself available to help resolve issues that may arise on a daily basis. His clients frequently commend him on his quick responses to e-mails and telephone calls.

Matthew graduated with an degree in Communications from Ohio University. With a focus in live television production and creative writing, he was involved in the writing and production of: television news, regionally televised documentary productions, nationally televised commercials and late-night sketch comedy. He also completed an internship with Fox Sports Ohio producing Cincinnati Reds baseball games.

This background has provided Matthew with a unique skillset of both pragmatic and artistic creativity, allowing him to imaginatively approach complex issues and reach solutions that effectively address the individual issues posed by each family law matter.

In his spare time, Matthew enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, homebrewing, and wallowing in the misery of southwestern Ohio sports.
