Matthew A. Gruber, Esq.

Matthew A. Gruber, Esq., founder of The Estate Plan in Miami, Florida, has dedicated his legal practice to helping individuals and families protect and plan their estates for over 10 years. He is licensed to practice law in the state of Florida and holds a Juris doctorate from Florida International University and a Bachelor’s in Business Administration degree from the University of Miami. Matt began his legal career in the tumultuous environment of the Great Recession. At that time, he joined forces with his late father, Allen H. Gruber, and together they created Gruber & Gruber, PA, a thriving practice that was dedicated to helping clients solve almost any problem that they were facing. This incredible opportunity afforded Matt the ability to gain an unparalleled amount of experience in a short period of time handling civil litigation, family law, criminal law, traffic law, real estate closings, foreclosure litigation, debt defense, credit repair, IRS collection/audit defense, probate, estate planning, business law, personal injury law and administrative law.

After the economy started to rebound, Matt’s father was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Unexplainably, the universe also started to send Matt many terminally ill clients. Matt took this as a sign that his ability to help people during their most difficult time in life was his calling. It was at that time that he founded the estate planning and probate law firm, The Estate Plan.

Having grown up in Palmetto Bay and graduating from local South Florida universities, Matt strives to give back to the community that offered him his humble start. Over the years he has conducted many workshops within the community in an effort to spread awareness about the necessity of estate planning.
