MAJ(R) Matthew W. Donald, Esq.
MAJ(R) Matthew W. Donald meets his clients with the exact balance of knowledge, training, and compassion needed to keep them and their family’s life secure.
He has 23 years of experience as a U.S. Army Military Policeman, having commanded 182 paratroopers and air assault troopers in Afghanistan, was an Assistant Professorship & Lecturer in Ohio State University’s Army ROTC and International Sciences Department, and was an Adjunct Professor at Capital University Law School. He started his own law firm in 2012.
Matt knows that every one of his clients deal with end-of-life situations a few times in their lives. These stressful situations often present a puzzle that is unique to the client, but always something solvable.
With Matt’s unique combination of military experience and extensive education, he holds the tools needed to deal with the most complex of situations. The most enjoyable part of his job is witnessing the release of stress, worry and anxiety on his clients’ faces when they complete their estate plan.
Matt graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice/Sociology, a Masters of Arts in Business Organization & Security Management, a Juris Doctor degree in Law, and a post doctorate degree in Taxation. Tired of seeing law firms that were more focused on money than clients, he sought to create a place where he would want to work: Donald Law Office.
Born and raised in Johnstown, PA, Matt and his wife moved to Columbus, Ohio after his tour in Afghanistan to be closer to both their families. When he’s not spending time with his wife of 25 years, Sherri, daughters, Madison and Brianna, and son, Joshua, Matt can be found hunting, gardening, or… holding the couch in place. Matt loves to spend his free time sitting on his front porch drinking coffee and appreciating the precious freedom paid for by our founding fathers and fellow service men and women.
