About Matthew S Okin

Attorney Biography

Matthew S. Okin is an experienced bankruptcy and commercial litigation attorney who offers a unique mixture of practical business knowledge, legal expertise and client relationship skills that can help you resolve your legal issues. He has experience representing clients in a variety of commercial litigation cases, bankruptcy and restructuring matters and commercial transactions.

 

Matthew attended the University of Texas School of Law where he graduated with honors and afterward joined the international law firm of Vinson & Elkins, LLP. Here he focused his practice on representing a wide variety of clients in commercial disputes, bankruptcy matters and toxic tort cases. While in this role, Matthew developed many of the litigation skills he brings to bear for his clients today in both his trial and bankruptcy practices. He developed these skills through extensive real-life experience, including first and second-chair jury trials and bench trials, state and federal appeals, numerous court appearances, and hundreds of hours of depositions on behalf of clients. In addition to valuable hands-on experience, Matthew also honed his litigation skills through his participation in Vinson & Elkins’ extensive in-house training program for litigators and by attending the intensive, two-week trial practice training seminar, National Session conducted by the National Institute for Trial Advocacy.

 

In 2001, Matthew joined Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, a renowned international law firm with one of the leading bankruptcy practices in the United States. At Akin Gump, Matthew’s practice focused on the representation of debtors and creditors in the negotiation of complex plans of reorganization and the litigation of contested matters and adversary proceedings related to Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases. Serving as the lead day-to-day counsel to debtor corporations and creditor constituencies has complemented his litigation skills with the business-based practicality designed to minimize risk and maximize returns to creditors in a variety of legal arenas – from litigation to transactional issues.

 

After five years Matthew founded his own firm, the Law Office of Matthew S. Okin. Shortly thereafter, Matthew was joined by Chris Adams to form Okin Adams LLP. Matthew’s experience in highly charged, challenging situations involving both financial restructuring and litigation matters brings an extraordinary resource to assist you in managing your legal issues. His combination of legal skills and business practicality provides perspective and results in handling clients’ most sensitive legal issues.
