The Brinton Firm

Los Angeles Tenant Attorneys

Meet the brinton firm legal team




Matthew Brinton has practiced law since 2012, after graduating from DePaul University and the Southwestern School of Law. He founded the Brinton Firm in 2016. At the time, Matt realized that the legal rights of tenants were vastly unrepresented and that, as a result, many meritorious cases were not being heard. The firm rapidly expanded to its present size, becoming the premier tenants’ rights firm in Southern California. In the past three years, Matt has recovered over $8,000,000 on behalf of Los Angeles’ tenants. Matt has been named a California Super Lawyer three years in a row. 

In his spare time, Matt collects rare books and whiskies. Both are often, but not always, enjoyed in moderation.
