Matt Rommelmann Attorney
A Texas native, Matt originally moved to Whatcom County in 2017 where he worked for 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, and served 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 have the opportunity to return to Washington where he began his legal career with Whatcom Law Group.
Outside of work, Matt enjoys spending time with his wife, Nina, and their two cats/roommates, Millicent and Mouse. 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) trying to convince someone to go bowling with him.
