The Law Office of Matthew B. Pavone

Notice of Retirement 5/31/2019

After almost forty years as an attorney, I have retired from the practice of law.  It has been both my pleasure and my honor to have served the people of the State of California for these many years, initially as a federal prosecutor and then as a criminal defense attorney in private practice.

The Law Office of Matthew B. Pavone is closed.  If you need legal assistance, I encourage you to contact your county’s Bar Association for Lawyer Referral and Information Services.

If you are a former client, it has been my policy to return all personal items from files to clients and to keep a copy of the client file for a period of ten years.  If you have not claimed your case file prior to my retirement, I will continue to store the closed case records until the ten-year retention is complete.  

Please contact me if you have any questions.  You may contact me via email at or leave a message for me at 415.827.8675.

Thank you,

Matthew B. Pavone
