The Legal Journey of Matt Palentchar

December 22, 2017
It is simply the case that Matt Palentchar’s current firm, which he formed a while back in St. Petersburg, Florida, takes a more specific focus on real estate transactions and property law than his previous firms or other practices he’s worked with. That means he has represented hundreds of lenders, purchasers and sellers in complex commercial transactions, in addition to commercial and residential Florida real estate. That said, Matt Palentchar finds client service to be the key to success, which is why he does a lot of other real estate work, including title searches, title exams, and issuing title insurance for residential and commercial closings.

In addition to being a member in good standing of the Florida Bar, Matt also likes to spend his free time volunteering for CASA as a court appointed Guardian Ad Litum for disadvantaged children. He longs to be more than a good real estate lawyer, but also a leader in the community of St. Petersburg, where he lives with his wife Heather and their two dogs.

The truth is, Matt Palentchar has come a long way since he finished law school in Ohio, moved to Florida and passed the bar. He began his practice in Naples, at a general practice law firm where he practiced real estate, estate planning, civil, criminal and business law. He tired of that grind and formed and ran Matthew G. Palentchar, Esq., P.A. between 2005 and 2010, when a life threatening illness and other personal issues caused him to leave Florida for a time. Before long, however, he became well and got through those personal problems and returned to Florida more focused and feeling better than ever and formed Matthew G. Palentchar, PLLC in St. Petersburg.
