Back when Matthew Palentchar was a child growing up in Colonia, New Jersey, he seemed far more interested in playing sports like baseball, basketball, football and soccer to have an inkling that he would someday become a well-known Florida real estate lawyer. Now, with about a decade-and-a-half of experience in his background, he has done quite well for himself.
That is because he was sure to get the education he needed. After graduating high school in Colonia, Matt Palentchar earned a B.A. in political science from Rutgers University-New Brunswick and then a law degree on a scholarship from Ohio Northern University. Armed with his J.D., Matt Palentchar decided to move to Florida, where he passed that state’s bar exam and started practicing with a law firm in Naples, Florida, where he practiced in real estate, estate planning, civil, criminal and business law. Since then, he has founded and run two firms of his very own and he now specializes in Florida Property Law. And he likes it that way.
