Overview

Matthew Moroney co-chairs the firm’s Insurance and Healthcare Fraud Litigation department.

Matt regularly counsels insurance carriers on multi-claim investigations involving healthcare providers located in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.  Matt and his team regularly analyze complex data, including medical records and billing, on an individual and multi-claim basis to identify questionable patterns and to access potential fraud.  Matt has successfully litigated large scale affirmative actions with fraud, RICO, and declaratory judgment claims, which recouped millions of dollars for his clients.

Over the last 15 years, Matt has accumulated extensive trial experience in the state and federal courts in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.  He is well-versed in state and federal civil procedure and evidentiary practice. Matt has extensive experience in all stages of litigation from the initial pleadings through appeals, and extensive expertise conducting examinations under oath of insureds and healthcare providers.  

During his career, although he has won well over 50 jury trials, and many more nonjury trials and arbitrations, Matt is equally as proud of the meaningful results he achieved for clients without stepping foot into the courtroom.  Matt and his team are committed to helping their clients limit their exposure on questionable claims and ensure that they are not damaged by fraudulent practices in the future.

Matt enjoys the challenge of handling complex and complicated cases others would find difficult and resolving them successfully for his clients.  He is recognized for working well with opposing counsel, arbitrators and judges, while maintaining the highest standard of representation for his clients.

In addition to mentoring his team to ensure they provide high level legal services, Matt has been active in the management of the firm overseeing its growth with the addition of the firm’s New York office during his tenure as partner. He also makes time to regularly give presentations.  Matt is frequently asked by organizations to speak and share insight on how to identify and combat fraud.

Matt graduated from Villanova University, cum laude and from Temple University School of Law, also cum laude. While in law school, Matt was on the Temple Law Review. 

During his free time, Matt enjoys spending time with his wife and his two boys, along with following the Eagles, Phillies, Sixers, Flyers, and Villanova basketball.
