Matt Rommelmann

Matt Rommelmann Attorney

A native of Texas, Matt moved to Whatcom County in 2017 when he began working with a local non-profit organization in Bellingham.

In 2020, Matt returned to Texas to pursue his law degree at South Texas College of Law Houston. While in school, Matt served on the Journal of International Economic Law’s Editorial Board, the Dean’s Advisory Board, and volunteered with Texas Law Help. He participated in family law and access to justice clinics, as well as having had the honor of serving as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Judge Angela Graves-Harrington of the 246th District Court in Houston.

After earning his Juris Doctorate, Matt and his family were thrilled to return to Washington to practice with the Whatcom Law Group.

When he’s not working, Matt loves nothing more than spending time with his family and friends. He takes every opportunity to be outside and is most often found biking Galbraith, skiing Baker, losing his way on a hike, or (in case of rain) arguing his case for someone to go bowling with him
