We Know What Matters

A Different Approach

At McBride Law Offices, we believe in achieving success for our Clients through strategy and strength.  Unlike many other law firms who require a fee and then develop a strategy, we develop a strategy first and then work with the client to offer cost-effective fee options. 

We always try to avoid litigation and resolve legal disputes outside of the courtroom. However, when our adversary does not agree, we will fight inside the courtroom for our Clients with strength and experience. We never hesitate to proceed to trial when necessary to achieve success for our Clients.

An Experienced Litigator In Your Corner

Matthew L. McBride III, Principal and Founder of McBride Law Offices, has been litigating and negotiating legal disputes for over 20 years. 

Beginning as an Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney, Mr. McBride acquired the trial skills needed to win in the Courtroom. After going into private practice in 1999, he was able to hone his negotiation skills by negotiating contracts as a sports agent for his Brother, Brian McBride, a member of the U.S. Soccer Hall of Fame.  Mr. McBride currently represents Jonathan Spector, an Arlington Heights native, who now plays for Orlando City SC of Major League Soccer. 

Mr. McBride has first chaired 18 jury trials, all with verdicts favorable to his Clients. He has tried hundreds of bench trials and litigated in many state and federal courts throughout the country.  Mr. McBride has also been retained to handle appellate matters.  After being hired after the Clients originally lost on appeal, he prevailed before the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Reversing the lower court’s decision, the Appellate Court agreed with Mr. McBride and agreed it would be a “miscarriage of justice” to uphold the lower court’s decision. The opinion of Roggenbuck Trust v. Dev. Res. Group, LLC, is located at 505 Fed.Appx. 857 (11th Cir. 2013).  

Mr. McBride has litigated in the following state and federal Courts:

  • United States Supreme Court

  • U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit
