Matthew T. Tanda

Matt’s practice centers on family law, estate planning and probate litigation. Prior to joining The Wollard Law Firm, he practiced with a prominent Denver-based domestic relations law firm and a smaller practice focused on fathers’ rights. Mr. Tanda also worked as a research fellow/clerk for former Chief Judge Stephen Munsinger in the First Judicial District of the State of Colorado.

Mr. Tanda understands the unique nature of each individual case and uses a client-centered approach encompassing strategies ranging from informal negotiation to litigation based upon each client’s individual case and objectives.

Matt is a fourth generation Japanese American and Colorado native, born and raised, and gives back to the community that raised him by donating his time the Colorado Lawyers Committee and Metro Volunteer Lawyers, providing legal assistance to those unable to afford more conventional representation.

Taking advantage of the natural beauty of his home state, Matt can often be found hiking, camping, or skiing, and enjoys digging into Colorado’s frontier history.
