Back when Matthew Palentchar was growing up playing sports with friends in Colonia, New Jersey, it was unlikely he envisioned himself becoming a prominent Florida real estate attorney. And yet, there he is. Over more than a decade, Matt has managed to put together a good record of success that as a specialist in the real estate area of the law. Getting to that point was certainly an arduous journey, however. After high school graduation, Matt Palentchar went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in political science from Rutgers University-New Brunswick.
While he attended Rutgers, Matt Palentchar managed to earn a scholarship that allowed him to attend Ohio Northern University Law School, where he earned his Juris Doctor. He then moved to Florida, where he passed the bar exam in 2004 and began practicing with a general practice firm in Naples for a short time before founding and running Matthew G. Palentchar, Esq., P.A., which he ran until 2010, when serious illness forced him to leave Florida for a while. He was back soon after and formed Matthew G. Palentchar, PLLC, a real estate transactional firm in St. Petersburg, Florida. That’s where he now lives with his wife and their two dogs.
