Matthew Miller-Novak was raised in Youngstown, Ohio. He moved to Cincinnati with his wife, Jamie, in 2001 to achieve his M.F.A in painting and drawing at the University of Cincinnati. After graduate school, Matt spent several years exhibiting his art, instructing art at Northern Kentucky University, and raising his son, Liam. Matt later decided to attend Chase School of Law because he wanted to devote his life to helping others. While he was in law school, Matt worked hard to develop his trial advocacy skills, as well as a working knowledge of employment and business law. Two different law schools have published his articles, and he recently lectured on employment issues at Whittier Law School in California. Matt still exhibits art, he plays guitar at his church, and he volunteers in his community during his free time.

Matt is client-focused, and he is a passionate advocate. He is determined to provide small business owners quality representation. Whether a business needs advice regarding contracts, entering into transactions, dealing with employment issues, trade secrets, or litigation counsel, Matt can provide these services.

“It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to run a successful small business, and business owners deserve an attorney that will work hard for them. I am very grateful for the ongoing relationships I have formed with my business clients, as well as the opportunity to serve these hard-working people.” – Matt Miller-Novak
