About Matt

Matt Marcellino believes it’s important to instill trust, honesty and hard work into his representation. His goal as an attorney is to carefully guide his clients through the often-frustrating legal process. He has learned that honesty and respect are vital to your representation, but also recognizes that some cases, possibly yours, may need an aggressive approach.

In addition to his responsibilities as a partner with Marcellino & Tyson, PLLC, he enjoys spending time with his family, he is a member of Myers Park Presbyterian Church, he tries to squeeze in a round of golf when he can, loves serving up his award winning barbeque and is honored to be a council member for the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club.
