Work Directly With A Dedicated Attorney

I am attorney Mathew Olkin, a native of eastern Connecticut, having grown up in Norwich. After earning my law degree from Pace University School of Law and passing the New York State Bar Exam in 1995, I then pursued a career in sabermetrics — the scientific analysis of player and team performance in baseball. From 2004 to 2010 I worked as a consultant to several major league baseball teams, advising general managers on player personnel decisions.

Sabermetrics allowed me to find creative solutions after analyzing complex information and statistics, advocating for what I felt the evidence supported. Working as a consultant also gave me the flexibility to relocate, allowing my wife and me to return to our home state of Connecticut. In 2011, I decided to launch a career as an attorney after passing the Connecticut Bar Exam while interning at the Public Defenders' Offices at in New London and Danielson.

I opened the Law Offices of Mathew Olkin in Willimantic in 2012. As a former sabermetrics consultant, I have found that I have been arguing about what evidence means since well before I started practicing law. Today, my practice continues to thoroughly analyze my clients' situations, finding creative solutions and advocating for sensible resolutions.

When not practicing law, you can often find me working on my 27-acre farm, tending to my horses, goats and chickens, as well as my various fruit trees, grapevines and berry bushes.
