Personal Injury Attorney Matthew Noyes
Matthew Noyes’ interest in personal injury law started after he was involved in a car crash himself at the age of 16. As he was recovering from his fractured hip, torn rotator cuff and other injuries, Matthew learned how injuries affect almost every aspect of one’s life. His first-hand knowledge has helped him to aggressively illustrate how a crash victim is much more than a pile of medical records-something insurance companies seem to always think.
Matthew is a named partner at Perenich, Caulfield, Avril & Noyes, PA and has been at the firm since 1989. He has dedicated most of his adult life to helping victims of personal injury. As he worked on his education, Matthew was a legal assistant in personal injury law firms helping to ensure that those injured as a result of the negligence or carelessness of others were protected in our legal system. By the time he graduated law school, Matthew had over seven years of practical experience as a legal assistant helping injured people put the pieces of their lives back together.
Matthew is an author of four books on his areas of law. He has written The Ultimate Guide to Accident Cases in Florida – Do You Really Need an Attorney After Your Car Accident?; Know Your Rights After Your Workers’ Compensation Injury; How Social Security Disability Benefits Are Awarded; and A Guide to the Battle for Social Security Disability Benefits. Matthew provides a free copy of his books to his clients or anyone interested in learning more about the subjects.
Attorney Matthew Noyes and his family are well known in the Clearwater community. Matthew Noyes was born in Naperville, Illinois and has been living in Pinellas County since 1976 when he, his parents and his 10 brothers and sisters relocated to Clearwater. He attended St. Cecelia Catholic School where his mother was his music teacher. There has been a Noyes at St. Cecelia Catholic every year since 1976! He also graduated from Clearwater Central Catholic where his brother taught him chemistry and physics. His sister continues to teach at Clearwater Central Catholic. Again, there has been a Noyes at Clearwater Central Catholic High School every year since 1976!
Following high school, Matthew obtained two associates degrees from St. Petersburg Junior College and went on to earn his Bachelor of Arts degree cum laude from the University of South Florida and his Juris Doctorate at Stetson University College of Law in St. Petersburg, graduating sixth in his law school class despite working full time to support his family.
In addition to his dedication to his clients, Matthew is dedicated to his community. He enjoyed being an adjunct professor in the Legal Assistant program at St. Petersburg Junior College. He has sponsored youth baseball teams and has coached his son’s baseball team for the past several years.
After the passing of his parents, Matthew created the Noyes Family Foundation. The Noyes children wanted to put what their parents taught to good use. Family was always important in the Noyes homes. Giving back to others was a life lesson. As a result, Operation Stone Soup was born — an event in which Matthew and the Noyes family buys all the ingredients for a big family Thanksgiving for nearly 100 needy families. In addition to Operation Stone Soup, the Noyes Family Foundation served the homeless at HEP and Pinellas Hope and recognizes teachers for their hard work.
Matthew has earned the AV Preeminent rating from Martindale Hubbell since 2010. This is the highest rating possible. He has also been named part of Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite multiple times. Matthew has been repeatedly named one of America’s Most Honored Professionals and received a Client Distinction Award for this dedication to his clients. Recently, he received the Silver Award in Suncoast News’ Readers Choice Awards.
Matthew is admitted to practice in all Florida courts as well as the United States District Court. He is a member of the Florida Justice Association; the Clearwater Bar Association and the St. Petersburg Bar Association. Matthew has appeared as host and guest of the live call-in legal television show, FLA LAW.
When he’s not working, Matthew enjoys spending time with his wife, Marti, and his two children, Krystal and Jacob. Krystal graduated with her 4-year degree from St. Petersburg College, but remains “Daddy’s Little Girl.” Krystal is married to Daniel Brandeis. Krystal and Dan have blessed Matthew with two granddaughters, Makenzie and Savannah. They have Papa tied around their little finger. Jacob continued the Noyes tradition at St. Cecelia School and is now continuing the tradition at Clearwater Central Catholic High School. Matthew and his wife adopted Jacob from Guatemala, and he has been home since he was 18 months old. Matthew is proud of the young man Jacob is becoming and the Noyes family is blessed to have him in our lives.
Matthew also enjoys the Chicago Cubs and Tampa Bay Rays. He continues to assist in coaching his son in baseball at Largo Little League and in soccer at the Clearwater Chargers.
