Matt joins us with years of experience with lawsuits against major companies under his belt.

BOSTON—In October, NELC welcomed attorney Matthew Donohue to the team.

Matt joins NELC following six years at a boutique litigation firm in Boston. There, he represented individuals suffering from serious illnesses as a result of exposure to toxic substances. In so doing, Matt prosecuted complex lawsuits against many of the nation’s largest corporations.

Matt graduated from Skidmore College in 2007 and received his J.D. from Boston College Law School in 2012. There, he advocated for progressive constitutional principles as president of the Boston College chapter of the American Constitution Society, and provided free legal services to low-income families through the school’s nonprofit legal clinic.

Outside of work, Matt is an avid golfer, home cook, and Boston sports fan.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join the talented attorneys and staff at NELC in the fight to hold polluters accountable and preserve our natural resources,” notes Matt. “It is vitally important work.”
