Although mostly focused on his decade-long career as an attorney, Matt Palentchar is more than real estate transactions, commercial and residential closings, property law and estate planning. This owner of MGP Law & Title in St. Petersburg, Florida -- where he also practices -- saves ample time away from the office to enjoy his life with wife Heather. He’s especially grateful for such time under the sunny Floridian skies after battling and beating a life-threatening illness not long ago; one that jeopardized his health and his career, causing him to relocate back to his native New Jersey and start over recently in Florida as he opened MGP Law & Title in 2016 once back and better than ever.
Today, a healthier and happier Matthew Palentchar dedicates extra time away from work to serving for CASA as a court-appointed Guardian Ad Litum for disadvantaged children. Additionally, he is an avid sports fan, enjoying live games as well as those on television, but happy to play various sports as well -- from baseball to football to basketball. He even admits to being an NFL Cleveland Browns fan. Palentchar runs multiple times per week and enjoys the advantages of a life in Florida with his wife, including parks and the nearby beaches. The couple have become Harry Potter fans in recent years, even naming their two dogs Gryffindor and Sirius after the popular films.
