Unwavering Dedication Pursuing The Best Possible Outcome

Matthew Kowtko

Protecting the Rights of Sarasota Citizens

Attorney Matthew Kowtko is a Georgia native, born in Stone Mountain. His southern country-side upbringing gave him a deep love for classic country music, green rolling hills, southern-style sweet tea, and the sound of nighttime crickets. After his graduation from Georgia State University where he obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration & Business Economics, he moved to Orlando, FL to attend Barry University School of Law. His diligence and commitment to excellence earned him three Book Awards and a graduation with honors among the top third of his class.

A Passion for Law

Since high school, Mr. Kowtko showed a desire to practice law which was reinforced once he began working for a local law firm during undergraduate study. Since becoming licensed as an attorney, he has helped many families with a wide variety of legal issues ranging from family law to criminal defense. His clients describe him as highly energetic, personable, reliable, passionate, and tenacious when it comes to fighting for their interests.

As a family man himself, Matt can understand and empathize with the stress and the emotional toll that can accompany important and sensitive matters involved in family law. He also has a background in business, giving him an in-depth knowledge of the challenges and frustration involved with civil litigation cases.

Committed to His Community

Mr. Kowtko dedicates his practice to the Sarasota area by donating time and efforts to facilities that help low-income individuals with family issues, the same way he did during law school. When Matt is not practicing law, he enjoys traveling with his family, attending live country concerts, and watching movies at home. Among his favorite countries to visit are England and Germany. He also has a passion for sports cars and luxury watches.

His primary goal as an attorney is to protect the legal rights of his clients. When children are involved, he seeks to ensure that clients get fair time-sharing and that the time-sharing schedule meets the best interests of the child. For divorce cases, he seeks to secure the fair distribution of property and debts.
