Matt Gluck is a trial lawyer who made the jump into solo practice in 2012 after ten years working at Shartsis Friese in San Francisco. He has a broad litigation practice, including significant experience with contracts and business torts, plaintiff-side construction litigation, organizational governance and other fiduciary issues, homeowners association disputes and other real property related matters, business dissolution, insurance coverage, legal malpractice, trust matters, and other business litigation.
For several years Matt has been heavily involved with the Bar Association of San Francisco, including serving on the Board of Directors of the Barristers Club (2010-2011), BASF’s division serving members in their first 10 years of practice, and as that Board’s President (2011). He also has served on the steering committee for BASF’s Mock Trial Program (2008-2011), and as that committee’s chair (2009-2011). As a participant in BASF’s Justice & Diversity Center (JDC) and its Housing Negotiation Project, he provides pro bono representation to unrepresented San Franciscans facing eviction, and was recognized by the JDC as an Outstanding Volunteer in 2012. Mr. Gluck was on the steering committee for the 2012 VLSP Bike-a-Thon fundraiser, and presently is the chair of the Barristers Club’s Advisory Committee and serves on a new committee called Leadership Reunited, aimed at keeping termed-out leaders in touch with each other and the Bar Association.
Matthew lived in San Francisco’s Western Addition neighborhood for nearly 20 years, having recently relocated to Marin County. Wanting to give back to his old neighborhood, since 2007 Matthew has served on the board of Up On Top, a non-profit providing after school and summer programs for underserved elementary school children and their families in the Western Addition and Tenderloin neighborhoods.
Matthew is also an alumnus of Cornell University (B.A. Philosophy, 1994).
