Starley Law is well-respected and widely recognized for its litigation skills and track record.


Starley Law represents clients in the state and federal appeals courts. Appeals call upon a very different skill set than trials.



The son of a small business executive, Mr. Starley (preferably Matt) loves to assist entrepreneurs (and others) with their intellectual property assets and technology law needs.  He is a Lawyer with the law firm Snow, Christensen & Martineau and is licensed to practice in both Nevada and Utah, although he is able to service clients with U.S. trademark and copyright issues and other technology law needs (such as end user license agreements) from all over the world.  Attending law school in the Northeast, he finds any reason he can to return there . . . especially when the Autumn leaves begin revealing their colors.

Mr. Starley is proficient with trademark and copyright filings and drafting or advising clients regarding end user license agreements, software development agreements, website development agreements, media, software and website license agreements, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements, online terms of service, technology consulting agreements, royalty agreements, trade secret protective measures and policies, infringement cease and desist letters, privacy disclosures and so forth.

Matthew Starley’s practice focuses on litigation matters. He has extensive experience representing clients in matters relating to intellectual property litigation, insurance defense issues and in general trial practice matters.

His clients cover a broad spectrum, from individuals to small and medium-sized businesses, insurance companies, and large corporations.

Matt has represented clients in matters ranging in value from tens of thousands of dollars to multi-millions, and includes a complex commercial litigation matter – between two global chemical corporations – valued at over ten billion dollars.

Following several years of practicing in Nevada, Matt joined SCM.  His combined past and present practice includes general business issues, commercial litigation, contracts, intellectual property, real estate, general trial practice and appellate work. Matt’s broad experience also includes serving as in-house counsel for a progressive Nevada aerospace company.
