Matthew Z. Robb

Attorney Profile

Associate Attorney
Phone: 248-354-9650

Matthew graduated cum laude from Wayne State University Law School in 2016. He earned advocacy and writing accolades for his participation in Wayne Law’s Moot Court program. He was Chair of the Keith Students for Civil Rights, where he created programs that empowered high school students from diverse communities throughout Metro Detroit to engage in cross-cultural dialogues and improve their school communities.

Matthew is a former clerk to one of his great legal heroes, the Honorable Judge Damon J. Keith on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. In 2017, Matthew was selected by the Detroit Legal News for a published feature that recognized his remarkable legal legacy, professional accomplishments, and civic activities.

Prior to law school, Matthew graduated with honors from the James Madison College at Michigan State University. He was an early Obama Campaign Organizer during historic wins in the 2008 Iowa Caucuses and Michigan during the general election. In 2009, he wrote a book entitled An Unlikely Radical about his father Dean, a famed people’s lawyer who stood on the side of workers and African-Americans during some of the most challenging and controversial years of the American Labor and Civil Rights Movements. After college, Matthew was a Detroit educator, where he led courses in Social Studies, American History, Civics, Economics, Basic Law, and Civil Rights in both public and charter schools. His wife Angie is a teacher with experience in both public and charter schools, and they both know intimately how important unionized public schools are to our communities and the success of our children.

As an Associate Attorney, Matthew is honored to be able to stand with workers to promote justice in the workplace. He is admitted to practice law in the State of Michigan, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
