Matthew B.F. Biren
Founder of Biren Law Group
Matthew B.F. Biren, the founder of Biren Law Group, has always had an interest
in the law. This interest started early on as a boyhood addition to television
shows like Perry Mason, The Bold Ones, and Arrest & Trial. The witty
and intelligent portrayal of these lawyers appealed to the same competitive
spirit that had always driven Matt in sports, school and other endeavors.
After receiving his undergraduate degree from UCLA, Matt went on to pursue
his law degree at Loyola University. At the end of his first year, he
started clerking for a labor law firm, Levy & Van Bourg. It was there
that he first saw the tremendous advantage that large corporations and
insurance companies have within the legal system.
Serving Clients for More Than 40 Years
While clerking and later working as a labor lawyer himself, however, Matt
realized that seriously injured individuals and small businesses could
compete with these large corporations and insurance companies if only
they had the right lawyer by their side. It is for this reason that he
has devoted his professional career to developing a skillset that would
allow him to protect the rights of “the little guy.”
For the first four years of his legal career, Matt worked as a labor lawyer.
In doing so, he spent more time in trial than most lawyers spend in a
lifetime. When he felt that his skills and knowledge of the law were refined
to the point that he could provide his clients with representation that
was equal to or better than that available to the wealthiest of corporations,
he founded Biren Law Group.
Areas of Practice:
- Catastrophic injuries
- Products liability
- Premises liability
- Wrongful death
- Insurance bad faith
Over the last 40 years, Matt’s commitment to protecting the rights
of his clients has not wavered. If anything, the challenge of incorporating
modern technology into his practice has spurred him on to work even harder.
Looking back at his lengthy and prosperous career, Matt feels that he
has succeeded in emulating his boyhood heroes by becoming an extraordinarily
skilled trial attorney himself.
Award-Winning Representation Working For You
Matt has even been selected for inclusion in the
Southern California Super Lawyers® for fourteen consecutive years, dating from the second year the award
was given, 2006, to 2019. In his personal time, Matt balances the time
demands of his legal career with his commitment to his family—which
includes his wife, Dee Dee, five children, five grandchildren, and his
dogs and horses. His favorite pastimes include riding horses, playing
golf and going on vacation.
