Matt Richter is an attorney who represents disability claimants before the Social Security Administration and in the U.S. federal courts. He represents claimants who have been denied their social security disability benefits and/or supplemental security income both at the hearing level before Social Security’s administrative law judges, and on appeal in federal court.
Born and raised in east central Indiana, Matt graduated from Richmond High School in 2008. He received his undergraduate degree, a B.A. in political science, from Indiana University in 2012. In May of 2016, Matt received his law degree (J.D.) from Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis. While in law school, Matt represented a social security disability claimant before an administrative law judge as part of the school’s disability clinic, and was named to the “Order of the Barrister’s” during its moot court competition.
Although newly sworn in as an attorney in 2016, Matt has been working in the area of social security disability law for a while. In early 2015, he began work as the Keller & Keller Social Security Disability Group’s law clerk, focusing on federal court appeals. He is also a member of the National Association of Social Security Representatives and the Indiana State Bar Association Social Security Disability Section.
“In a society that so often stigmatizes asking for help, our clients need an effective advocate who believes in their cause. I believe in their cause and I fight for them.”
Aside from work, Matt is a rabid fan of his beloved Indiana Hoosiers. He is a parishioner at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Indianapolis and enjoys swimming, working on his home and yard, discussing politics, and trying to keep up with his Australian Shepherd, Jack.
