Matthew V. Daley


Matt Daley first moved to the Hoosier state in 2002 to attend college at Indiana University. Intent on declaring a computer science or a business major during his early college years, Matt took a business law class that would change everything. From that moment on, Matt knew he was destined to become a lawyer. He earned his undergraduate degree from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, and went on to attend law school at Indiana University Indianapolis, earning his juris doctorate in 2008. While attending law school, Matt worked as a certified intern and later went on to become a deputy prosecutor.

As a former Marion County Deputy Prosecutor, he gained extensive courtroom and trial experience prosecuting drug and violent crime cases. It was during his two year stint as a prosecutor that Matt realized he had a passion and zeal for presenting oral arguments to a jury. In 2012, Matt was appointed a Public Defender in Vigo County, a role that allowed him to further hone his courtroom and advocacy skills on behalf of his clients in criminal law and family law cases.

Matt founded his own law firm in 2012, which merged with The Nice Law Firm, LLP three years later. As a Resident Attorney with The Nice Law Firm, LLP (Terre Haute), Matt has expanded his areas of practice and has a dedicated team of legal support staff, as well as numerous attorney-colleagues he can turn to for assistance with all of the daily nuances associated with running a successful law practice. He has never looked back.

An aggressive advocate on behalf of his criminal law clients, Matt views it to be a personal and professional honor to help individuals “who made one bad choice, one bad mistake, or were wrongfully arrested to prevent that one bad choice or mistake from destroying their life, or to at least do what I can to help mitigate the damage.” As a husband and father of two young sons, Matt understands all that is at stake for his family law clients seeking to end their marriages while doing the best they can to ensure the wellbeing of their children. He makes it his daily mission to help his family law clients work through difficult situations and arrive at the best outcome, so they can move forward in their lives.
