In over a quarter-century of experience as a prosecutor, Matt successfully argued appeals at the PA Superior and Supreme Courts and has tried over a hundred cases.
Matt began his career with the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office as an intern while in law school. Matt loved every minute of it and knew he had found his calling. Following graduation from Temple Law School in 1993, he was hired as an Assistant District Attorney. Matt considers this one of the highlights of his life.
“A lucky kid growing up in a great family” is how Matt describes his childhood. With two brothers and a sister, the Weintraub family’s Southampton home was the center of their universe. While active in many community activities and sports, Matt is most proud of having played basketball for the William Tennent Panthers.
Matt’s childhood was not without adversity which he believes helped make him the person he is today. Born with a hearing loss in both ears, and wearing hearing aids as a result, Matt learned to stick up for himself as a kid and to advocate for himself when he could not hear things that others could.
During his senior year at William Tennent, four classmates were tragically killed in a drunk driving accident. This horrific incident had a profound effect on Matt and contributed to his growing interest in law and justice; ultimately landing him as a prosecutor and Bucks County’s District Attorney.
From the classroom to the courtroom, Matt Weintraub has stood up to bullies and advocated for victims in need of a strong voice.
Matt attended Ursinus College and earned his law degree from Temple University Beasley School of Law. He resides in Doylestown Township with his wife Kathleen, daughters Shayna and Chloë, and Buddy the dog.
Throughout his 27-year career as a prosecutor, Matt has tried a wide range of cases including sexual assault, drug trafficking, child abuse, and homicide. As District Attorney, Matt leads a department of nearly 100 staff and has characterized his approach simply as, “We’re here to serve justice.”
