We are blessed to welcome two new members to the PGAC: Sherry Madl and Matthew Pineda
After an extensive career in education, Sherry made the career change to Edward Jones. During her years as an educator, she enjoyed learning about finances and investing and discovered that her passion and enthusiasm for educating and investing/finances could be blended into the perfect role as a financial advisor. As an Edward Jones financial advisor, Sherry believes it’s important to understand what a client is working toward: whether this means living in or working toward retirement, paying for an education, preparing for the unexpected or something completely different, she helps develop a strategy tailored to help clients achieve their financial goals.
Matt’s practice focuses on the areas of estate planning & probate, immigration law and entrepreneurship law. He is a faculty member at the National Business Institute (NBI), lecturing for Continuing Education classes for other lawyers on the topics of Probate and Estate Planning. Matt received Martindale-Hubbell’s esteemed “AV Preeminent” rating, which recognizes lawyers with the highest ethical standards and professional ability. This is the highest rating given by Martindale-Hubbell and is based on random, confidential surveys of lawyers. Matt’s “AV” rating serves as a testament to the fact that fellow attorneys consider him at the highest level of professional excellence. Only a select group of attorneys are ever awarded this premier distinction. Matt has also been recognized as a Premier Lawyers of America “Top 40 Under 40” attorney, and a Legal Elite, Up & Comer by Florida Trend Magazine. Prior to opening his own law practice, Matt served as an associate attorney at law firms in both Florida and North Carolina. At these firms Matt gained experience as both a zealous advocate for individual people and consumers, and as a litigator for large banking and financial institutions. Matt is excited to be back home in Orlando, Florida, and hopes to use his legal education and experience to serve you. Matt and his wife, Leslie, are both graduates of Bishop Moore Catholic High School.
