Matt Savich earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan in 1987, and his Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Detroit in 1993.
He's a former NCAA Division I wrestler (UNLV), and spent two years as a graduate assistant wrestling coach while studying at U of M.
Sports are an intrinsic part of Matt’s life outside the courtroom. To support his daughter's mutual love for hockey, Matt skated with her extensively when she was growing up and even coached one of her AAA teams. Matt currently plays in several adult hockey leagues, and he continues to bring the same tenacity to the courtroom that he does to athletics.
Interestingly, Matt embraces the vegan lifestyle because one of his college professors challenged him to find flaws in a book called "The Case for Animal Rights" by NCSU Philosophy Professor Tom Regan.
Regan proved his case to Matt beyond a reasonable doubt, and from that moment on it was easy to understand why animals deserve the same rights of life, liberty and happiness that all humans demand/receive.
When the State Bar of Michigan created its first Animal Law Section, Matt was a council member, of course.
Matt has earned an outstanding reputation and success rate due largely to his authentic and straightforward method.
