Matthew J. Swett, Esq.

Board Member

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR PROFESSIONAL LIFE?

I am a commercial real estate lawyer and have been practicing since 1993. I am currently a partner at Pepper Hamilton LLP and am the Chair of the Real Estate Practice Group.

WHY ARE YOU INVOLVED WITH SENIORLAW CENTER?

I feel that senior citizens are an underserved segment of our society which is a growing target for abuse and fraud.

HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR BOARD MEMBERSHIP / LEADERSHIP?

As I literally have just joined the Board, I do not have a personal highlight other than to say that in the few meetings I have attended I have been truly amazed at what the SeniorLAW Center is doing for seniors in Pennsylvania.

WHY DO YOU THINK OTHERS SHOULD SUPPORT SENIORLAW CENTER?

While fraud and abuse have always been a part of society and no segment of society is protected from it, senior citizens are particularly vulnerable as many do not have a family or social network to educate and protect them from unscrupulous persons. SeniorLAW Center is working daily to provide that education and protection.
