Born and raised in South Florida, Matthew Kaminski received a degree in History from the University of Florida in 2006. He later earned a Juris Doctorate degree from Florida A&M College of Law in 2009. During his time in law school, Matthew Kaminski was proud to represent his college in Moot Court competition and through volunteer work with the college’s VITA program.
Matthew Kaminski has been practicing law since passing the Florida Bar in 2009. He began working at a real estate litigation firm in Plantation, Florida. Mr. Kaminski participated in mediations and civil court practice (including judicial mortgage foreclosure, title actions, and evictions) all over the State of Florida. It was during his two years in practice at this firm where he met his wife.
In 2011, after his wife had accepted a directorship position in Seattle, Matthew Kaminski relocated to the Pacific Northwest and was admitted to the Washington State Bar later that same year. Mr. Kaminski went on to open his office in 2012 in the heart of Belltown at the historic Markham Building on 3rd Ave and Blanchard. He provided quality and affordable legal services through his practice. Matthew Kaminski also proudly works with the Legal Voice, a women’s rights group benefiting the State of Washington.
He has always felt that an attorney is measured by what he gives back to the community. Since settling down in the Pacific North West, he has volunteered with the King County Bar Association’s Housing Justice Project and Kinship Care Solutions Project providing free services to Low-Income clients. He has also taken pro bono cases through a Volunteer Legal Services program for more ongoing representation. Mr. Kaminski proudly worked with and supported the Legal Voice, a women’s rights group benefiting the State of Washington, contributing to their self-help publications. When he is not in the office or court, he focuses his time puttering around in the kitchen. He is always eager to test out a new recipe and incorporate whatever is popping up in my garden.
When Mr. Ashby invited him from Seattle to introduce him to his Family Law firm approach, one that merged a caring, client-centric approach with 21st century technology, Matt knew that this firm was ushering him in a new approach to family law and that he wanted to be a part of the Ashby firm “family.” The firm and he share the core belief that no one wins when two parents are pitted against each other, instead he has always striven to find collaborative solutions to difficult problems.
