Matthew Stubenberg graduated from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in 2009, and graduated cum laude from Maryland Law School in 2013.
Interested in using technology to change how the law is practiced, he set out to develop his first legal based app. The app named, Not Guilty App, was a directory of Court resources and Judges in Maryland. The app was downloaded several hundred times and was a finalist for the Legaltech Innovation Awards in 2015.
Matthew then moved on to create MDExpungement.com, a website that automates the expungement process and has been used to expunge more than 35,000 cases since launching in 2015.
Matthew worked as a law clerk for the Honorable Judge Goetzke in Anne Arundel County and then as Sr. Application Specialist for the Maryland Legal Aid Bureau. Matthew is currently the IT Director at the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS). His most recent project is building the CLUE program, where custom built web scrapers pull millions of records from public websites. CLUE can then find unknown legal issues MVLS’s clients may have. Matthew is also the IT Co-Chair of the Young Lawyers Section of the Maryland State Bar Association. Through his role there he co-created the Virtual Realty Attorney Training project which allows attorneys to watch mock courtroom trainings in Virtual Reality.
Matthew has won a number of awards including the ABA Top 40 Young Lawyers (2016), Daily Record’s 20 in their 20’s, and the Maryland Bar Foundation’s award for The Advancement of Rights of the Disadvantaged. His work has also been featured in the New York Times, ABA Journal, Daily Record, Open Law Lab, and Technical.ly.
