Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) August 12, 2014
Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, P.A., of Clearwater recently hired Attorney Matthew W. Kindel in their New Port Richey and Spring Hill offices. He will assist the firm’s legal team in handling Criminal Defense and DUI cases, along with taking over Family Law cases in Pasco and Hernando counties.
Growing up in Polk County, Kindel’s interest in the law came out of an interest in public service and protecting the rights of others. He attended Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida, and then pursued a law degree at Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, Florida, receiving his Juris Doctor in 2007.
Out of law school, Kindel was a prosecuting attorney in the Office of the State Attorney for the 10th Judicial District. After finding himself dissatisfied with how defendants were treated by the prosecution, Kindel elected to become a defense attorney and joined Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, P.A.
Kindel is a member of the Florida Bar, Hillsborough County Bar Association and the West Pasco County Bar Association. He is also a member of the New Tampa Evening Rotary Club, where he served as Sergeant-at-Arms and Foundation Treasurer.
“Matthew is both an involved member of the community and a dedicated advocate for the rights of our clients,” explained Principal Attorney Edward D. Carlson. “We’re lucky to have him with the firm, and are confident that he will bring great results in and out of court.”
