Matt Brady heads Illinois Advocates' office in Seattle. A Washington state native, Matt has practiced law in western Washington for the past 13 years.

Matt has spent his entire legal career dedicated to helping clients who might not otherwise have easy access to legal representation. He most recently worked at the Northwest Justice Project, where he represented low-income clients, veterans, senior citizens, and working families in a wide variety of areas, including consumer rights, housing, trusts & estates, and contract disputes.

Prior to his time at NJP, Matt represented similar client groups in Kansas City, Missouri and Dallas, Texas. He has also served as a member of the Alliance for Equal Justice’s Access to Justice Communications Committee, which helped spread the word about civil legal aid, and was on the Board of Directors of Snohomish County Legal Services for seven years.

As an avid supporter of community outreach, Matt has traveled to various communities throughout Washington teaching groups how to avoid consumer and housing scams. His passion for helping clients also is reflected in various legal trainings he’s conducted over the years, teaching other attorneys how to best represent their clients in tenants’ rights and consumer cases.

Matt earned his law degree from Seattle University, where he received the CALI Award for Excellence in Constitutional Liberty and Civil Rights. He is a member of the state bar in Washington, Missouri, and Texas, and has a Master’s in Business Administration degree from the University of Washington Foster School of Business.
