Matt Quinlan was born in Chicago, but grew up in Mississippi and California. He is extremely entrepreneurial, which is why he prefers the culture of a plaintiff’s firm and its small-business feel, pressures and intimacies.
In 2003, while attending law school, Matt founded FantasyFootballHelpers.com, a California LLC that sold memberships/access to fantasy football strategy and information to thousands of fantasy footballers across the country via the Internet. While under his ownership the business grew from a skeleton staff to a team of 13 industry-recognized sports writers from across the United States, whose work was also featured on Fox Sports, Sporting News, and several local sports radio outlets across the country.
The business realized revenues from thousands of paying members and online advertising contracts with the likes of ESPN, CBS, and DirecTV. In 2007, Matt sold his business in response to his strong desire to invest all of his time to his practice of law – the company has since been absorbed by another company.
Matt is also a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan, which stems from his family roots in the Chicago-land area. He enjoys recreational activities such as golfing and weight-lifting.
