Matthew Kilby has experience representing clients in family law matters in Colorado, New Mexico, and the Navajo Nation. Having worked in several jurisdictions, Matthew believes that preparation and compassion are prerequisites to providing excellent representation in family law. His goal in every case is to secure positive results that make a lasting impact in the client’s life.
Prior to working for Goldman Law, Matthew worked for a legal aid organization in New Mexico and then eventually entered private practice in Colorado. He obtained his Juris Doctor from University of Denver, Sturm College of Law in 2017. While attending law school, he advocated for a number of indigenous causes. In the school’s environmental law clinic, he represented several Navajo environmental organizations in litigation involving the Navajo Generating Station. He also prepared wills for members of various tribes as part of the University of Denver’s Tribal Wills Project.
Matthew moved to the United States from England as a child, and he grew up in Lake Oswego, Oregon. While in Oregon, he studied anthropology at Portland State University and participated in several archaeological excavations around the world.
