Matt Wilson prosecutes the firm's class action and mass tort cases. He serves as counsel for certified and putative classes in cases pending throughout the country involving defective products, privacy of medical information, violations of the federal telephone consumer protection statute ("TCPA"), credit problems, securities fraud, wage theft, and deceptive advertising. His mass tort practice includes representation of persons who suffer from complications stemming from defective medical devices and dangerous drugs.
Matt has been court-appointed class counsel in numerous cases across the country in which the defendants were alleged to have made unauthorized calls or sent text messages to cellular telephones through the use of an automated telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice, in violation of the TCPA. The TCPA class settlements in which Matt has been class counsel total over $300 million in cash for consumers, several of which were the largest robocall settlements ever at that time.
Before joining Meyer Wilson in 2006, Matt spent four years with the international law firm Jones Day, and two years prior to that with Vorys, Sater, Seymour & Pease LLP. During those six years, he defended many of the world's largest corporations in class actions, wage and hour collective actions, product liability cases, and a wide variety of other types of complex civil litigation.
