Matthew S. Snyder, MBA, JD
Matt is dedicated to helping families with their estate planning and elder care law needs. He graduated from West Virginia University with a Bachelor of Science in Economics before moving to Ohio and obtaining both his Juris Doctor (J.D.) and Master’s in Business Administration (M.B.A.) from the University of Akron.
After gaining exposure to elder care law topics, Matt knew he would focus his career on that path. Specifically, he enjoys providing clients with peace of mind to accomplish their asset protection goals and assisting them through the planning process involved when a loved one has a long-term care health crisis. Many families are unsure where to turn for answers when a family member enters a skilled nursing home or begins receiving other costly forms of long-term care. Matt devotes his time to answering those questions and educating families on the upcoming issues they may face. He has extensive experience in applying for Medicaid benefits and is accredited through the Department of Veterans Affairs to assist with Veterans benefits.
Matt and his wife enjoy taking in the sights and scenes of Northeast Ohio and walking their dogs through the local Metroparks.
