Attorney and Owner of Tandy Law Firm, Matt Tandy had always wanted to be a lawyer, but his first path led this Hoosier-born-and-raised student to receive a Biology degree from Purdue University. After school, he briefly worked in Research for the VA Hospital before deciding to return to school. It was at this time that Matt took a Trial Practice class, and a light bulb went off. It allowed him the opportunity to stand up and tell a story—with passion for his client and his client’s story.

Matt has worked in many aspects of law, including ‘in the trenches’ trial experience. His love of the legal system, coupled with his enthusiasm and desire to build strong relationships with clients, motivated him to start his own firm in 2013.

Now, he’s right where he wants to be: living and working in Indiana so he can be close to his son and serving his clients with a high level of care, personalized attention and deep experience. Matt knows how to move forward in today’s challenging environment and work side-by-side with his clients to help them understand their options and provide clear, easy-to-understand communication and complete honesty at every level.
