Matthew Reed Danahy (Matt) is a native of Tampa, Florida. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from The University of Florida in 1983. He subsequently attended Stetson University College of Law, and earned a Juris Doctor in 1986.

His practice also include defending claims for medical malpractice, maritime law, product liability, premises liability, and automobile negligence as well as cases involving serious personal injury and wrongful death. In addition, he defended cases involving first party insurance matters including personal injury protection claims (P.I.P.), uninsured motorist claims (U.M.), property insurance claims, as well as resulting claims for improper claims handling (bad faith). In 2001 Matt changed the direction of his practice. Since that time he has exclusively represented insured individuals, businesses and homeowners associations who are denied or underpaid insurance benefits, or otherwise mistreated, by their insurance carrier in connection with an insurance claim. In 2004, together with David C. Murray, Matt formed the firm of Danahy & Murray, P.A.
