Matthew Schoonover

Matt is a Senior Associate with Koprince Law LLC.  Matt’s legal practice focuses on federal government contract law. Matt also writes about government contracting on SmallGovCon.

Prior to joining Koprince Law, Matt practiced as a commercial litigator in Phoenix and Kansas City, where he gained experience in a variety of actions, including breach of contract claims, general business and insurance-related torts, and intellectual property litigation. He also worked with clients in matters relating to healthcare services, government contracting, election law disputes, and data security/privacy issues. In these roles, Matt gained extensive pre-trial litigation experience. Now, Matt uses the skills he learned as a litigator to help government contractors solve legal disputes.

Away from the office, Matt enjoys spending time with his wife and son. Having recently seen the Jayhawks win the national championship and the Royals win the World Series, he hopes that the Kansas City Chiefs will soon hoist the Lombardi Trophy.
