Matthew L. Lundy, Esq.

Matthew Lundy is licensed to practice law in Florida and Georgia. Since founding The Matthew Lundy Law Group, he has become one of the most knowledgeable, well-known and well-respected QDRO attorneys. He has a great deal of experience in analyzing and interpreting state and federal law related to retirement account division in family law cases, including but not limited to the Internal Revenue Code and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
