As an attorney in Baron and Budd’s Pharmaceutical Group, Matthew Haynie works primarily with clients suffering from serious injuries as a result of using testosterone therapy drugs, transvaginal mesh products, the anticoagulant, Xarelto, and other dangerous prescription drugs and medical devices. Though Matthew developed a keen interest in representing mass tort plaintiffs in pharmaceutical litigation while he was attending law school, he knew early in life that he wanted to dedicate his career to helping others.

As an undergraduate student, Matthew interned for Andrew Laming, a Queensland House Representative in the Parliament of Australia, who was instrumental in gaining access to healthcare for indigenous Australians. Matthew also worked on an award-winning documentary about exiled Tibetans living in refugee camps and monasteries across India. Both of these encounters opened his eyes to the atrocities human beings experience and strengthened his resolve to pursue a career in law that would allow him to seek justice for those who are injured by the wrongful acts of others.

Matthew graduated with his Juris Doctor from Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law in Dallas, Texas. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Journalism from the University of Arkansas, where he graduated magna cum laude and was a recipient of the Senior Honor Citation, an award given to the top graduating male and female student in each class.
