Matt Vandall

Matt Vandall

Matt Vandall was born and raised on the East Coast. In his early twenties, one of Mr. Vandall's first jobs was as a high diver and stunt show performer where he dove from ninety-five-foot heights, performing dives while on fire under the stage name Captain Inferno. He moved to San Francisco after college, deciding to go to law school to help individuals and organizations with their problems to further the public good. 

After graduating from law school, Mr. Vandall worked for some of California’s most prestigious law firms. His practice initially focused on defending the management of corporations. He was also a partner at the nation’s largest law firm dedicated exclusively to employment matters.

After fifteen years defending corporations, Mr. Vandall decided to take that experience and use it to help employees pursue justice in employment matters against the types of companies he used to represent. This experience has given him a truly unique skill set and understanding of employment law and negotiations. His practice is focused solely on helping people resolve disputes with current and former employers including claims of discrimination, retaliation, violations of leave laws, harassment, hostile work environment, disability accommodations, and employee compensation.

Mr. Vandall practices in all state and federal courts in California. His skills and talents include pursuing matters through trial in the courtroom, resolving cases prior to litigation, and effectively handling disputes through mediation and arbitration.

Mr. Vandall is an enthusiastic cyclist, hiker and reader. He enjoys cooking and good food, spending as much time as possible with his family, and volunteering in his community.
