Soon after he moved to Florida and passed the Florida Bar in 2004, Matt Palentchar began his legal career working with a general practice law firm in Naples, where he practiced in many legal areas, including real estate, of course, which has since evolved into a specialty, but also probate and estate planning, civil litigation, criminal law and business law. He soon tired of the usual law firm grind, however and went off to form his own firm, Matthew G. Palentchar, Esq., P.A in 2005.
Matt Palentchar ran that firm until 2010, which is when he was hit with several personal issues and a life-threatening illness. Those caused him to leave Florida for a while. Thankfully, Matt Palentchar is very tough and he was soon back in Florida, this time to St. Petersburg, where he formed Matthew G. Palentchar, PLLC. This latest firm has represented hundreds of lenders, buyers and sellers over the years as it features a more specific focus on real estate transactions and property law. He does other things, if they are necessary, but his more focused approach on real estate serves him well these days.
