Matthew R. Rankin


B.A., Santa Clara University, Santa Clara, CA
J.D., 2013, Monterey College of Law, Seaside, CA


Matt Rankin’s ties to the Monterey Peninsula run deep as he was born and raised in this area.

After graduating from Carmel High School, Matt attended Santa Clara University to study Journalism and History, as well as to play college baseball. It was right after hanging up his cleats that Matt discovered his new passion on a different field, the legal one, and he decided to attend law school at Monterey College of Law.

While attending law school, Matt worked as a Law Clerk for Bohnen, Rosenthal and Kreeft. While clerking for the firm, Matt found an excuse to put his hat and glove back on, this time as volunteer youth baseball coach. Now, as an attorney, Matt continues to spend his free time coaching Carmel Youth Baseball, and serving the community that has treated him so well.
