Matthew Averill is a Senior Associate Attorney in the Louisiana Office of The Morgan Law Group where he represents insureds to help them recover what they are owed by their carriers. His practice includes first- and third-party insurance disputes, including those involving the interpretation of policy provisions, coverage, wrongful denials, insufficient payments, and bad faith.
Before joining The Morgan Law Group, Matthew worked at a law firm in New Orleans for over six years honing his skills as a litigator in complex litigation and personal injury cases involving pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices, asbestos, benzene, and automobile and trucking accidents. Through this experience, Matthew has developed the tools necessary to obtain favorable results for his clients and to maximize their recovery.
After graduating from Rhodes College in Memphis, TN in 2009 with a degree in history with a focus in international studies and Latin American affairs, Matthew obtained his Juris Doctorate from Tulane University Law School in 2016 where he graduated Magna Cum Laude and earned a membership in the Order of the Coif—a national honors society for law students who finish in the top 10% of their classes. Between college and law school, Matthew worked in the Communications and Intergovernmental Relations Departments in the New Orleans Mayor’s Office where he wrote speeches and helped pass legislation for the people of New Orleans.
Matthew was born in Metairie, LA and has lived in South Louisiana for over thirty years. He has experienced first-hand the devastation Hurricanes Katrina and Ida brought to his family and the people of Louisiana and is familiar with the gamesmanship insurance companies often callously employ to protect their bottom line.
When not advocating for his clients, Matthew most enjoys spending time with his family, playing soccer, reading, writing, playing guitar, watching films and attending concerts.
