Matthew's Biography

Matthew J. Sill focuses his practice on pharmaceutical and medical device mass torts, catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, and class action litigation. He is frequently selected for leadership positions among large groups of attorneys representing hundreds or thousands of injured parties.  Most recently, Matt was designated to serve in official leadership roles by presiding judges in the following scenarios:

  • (2013) Appointment to Plaintiffs' Steering Committee for MDL 2331, In Re: Propecia (Finasteride) Products Liability Litigation, currently pending in United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York;
  • (2013) Appointment to Plaintiffs' Steering Committee for JCCP 4749, In Re: GranuFlo and NaturaLyte Litigation, currently pending in Los Angeles Superior Court;
  • (2013) Appointments as Appellate Liaison Counsel and State Court Liaison Counsel for MDL 2266In re: Darvon, Darvocet, and Propoxyphene Products Liability Litigation, in which Matt was previously a member of Plaintiffs' Executive Committee, currently pending in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky; and
  • (2013) Appointment as Class Counsel in Garcia v. Allergan, Case No. 11-cv-9811 PSG, in which physicians throughout the United States received settlement funds for purchasing Botox Cosmetic based on off-label promotion, currently pending in United States District Court for the Central District of California.

Matt was also recently involved with Sill Law Group's ("SLG") co-lead counsel responsibilities for the BOK National Settlement Class from MDL 2036 In re: Checking Account Overdraft Litigation, approved in United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. He was previously instrumental in SLG's success as co-lead counsel for the National Settlement Class from Stokes v. MidFirst Bank, CJ-2011-00130, based on excessive overdraft fees and approved in Pottawatomie County District Court.

Matt was on the trial team in Bergen County, N.J., for Stribling v. Wyeth, the last successful (from a plaintiff’s perspective) "fen-phen" verdict in the United States. He represents plaintiffs in personal injury and wrongful death cases pending in several different jurisdictions where his ability to practice pro hac vice is often based on the recommendation and sponsorship of local attorneys. See e.g. MDL 2244 In re: DePuy Hip Implant Litigation; MDL 2299 In re: Actos Products Liability Litigation. He is fully admitted to practice in the State of Oklahoma (2007), where out-of-state lawyers often retain him as local counsel for high-profile matters ranging from products liability to securities and antitrust. See e.g. In re: Chesapeake Energy Derivative Litigation, pending in Oklahoma County District Court.

In multiple matters currently pending before the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, Matt represents hundreds of people allegedly injured or killed by generic prescription drugs. See e.g. Romo v. Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. He is also appearing before the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit on behalf of several hundred women bringing claims against vaginal mesh manufacturers. See e.g. Teague et al. v. Johnson & Johnson et al.

Matt has successfully helped families and individuals involved in Avandia® diabetes drug litigation,  Yaz®/Yasmin®/Ocella® birth control litigation, gadolinium-based contrast dye litigation, Zimmer Durom® Cup hip replacement litigation, fentanyl pain patch litigation, Medtronic Sprint Fidelis® defibrillator lead litigation, Las Vegas hepatitis litigation, Chinese drywall litigation, hormone replacement therapy litigation, denture cream litigation, Trasylol® heart surgery litigation, and the tragic aircraft crash in Antlers, OK, to mention only a few.

Matt serves on the Board of Directors for the Oklahoma Association for Justice (formerly Oklahoma Trial Lawyers Association) and as Oklahoma's State Delegate to the American Association for Justice or AAJ (formerly ATLA). He has been continuously re-elected to these positions for many years. Matt is a founding co-chair of AAJ’s Propoxyphene Litigation Group and appointed to several different AAJ committees. He is a member of various organizations including the National Association of Consumer Advocates.

Matt regularly accepts invitations for faculty positions and speaking engagements at seminars and continuing legal education programs. He has lectured in many states including Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, New York, Oklahoma, and Texas, with programs typically being attended by lawyers from several other jurisdictions. He was recently chosen to co-chair HarrisMartin Publishing's 2013 CAT Flood and Windstorm Litigation Conference. In the area of pharmaceutical and medical device litigation, he has been a featured instructor or moderator at educational programs devoted to Actos®, GranuFlo®, Topamax®, pre-emption in generic drug cases, and several other topics. He authors a number of articles, and up-to-date information on relevant publications and published legal opinions are available by request from Sill Law Group.

?Matt received his law degree from Whittier College in Southern California (J.D. 2005), and his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Oklahoma (B.B.A 2000).  Prior to attending law school, Matt worked for a well-known talent and literary agency in Beverly Hills, Calif., and as a campaign official in a successful gubernatorial race in Oklahoma.  As a law student, he consistently worked as clerk to the senior partner of a high-profile mass tort firm in Los Angeles, and assisted with Vioxx®, litigation, Mirapex® compulsive behaviour litigation, Guidant® defibrillator litigation, and several other cases.
