Matthew A. HollandMatthew A. Holland,
Attorney at Law

As a lawyer, Matthew Holland's primary goal is to ensure that his client's expectations are fulfilled. He has a passion for providing legal representation to businesses and individuals alike, because he believes to his core, that the law is more than just ink on paper. It is what fundamentally protects us and is the instrument that establishes our rights. But it takes people to stand up and ensure the law is followed and that Justice is delivered. Matthew Holland wants to be this attorney for you.

Matthew grew up in Endicott, New York. He moved to Oregon in 2006 after law school and fell in love with the Pacific Northwest. From the people, to the culture and the surrounding environment he truly believes it is the best place to call home. In his spare time, he enjoys going to all of the different restaurants in town, camping on the Deschutes River or near Mount Hood, going to the local farmer's market and exploring new places.

Sean L. KyleSean L. Kyle,
Attorney at Law

In mediation, trial, and all other aspects of his practice, Sean has the experience, drive, and creativity to effectively assist you in moving forward with your life. Sean’s passion for the practice of law and strong belief in the necessity of the judicial system is inspired in no small part by his time spent working as a teacher in Kenya, a country where the practice of family law is practically non-existent.

Born and raised in California, Sean graduated from Wesleyan University, earned his Law Degree from The Northwestern School of Law of Lewis and Clark College and moved to Bend in 2018, a city that he immediately knew would be his permanent home.
