About Matt Folz
As a Partner at Dobbs & Folz, LLC, Matt concentrates his practice in estate planning, and business selection, formation, governance, and succession planning. Matt’s Bachelor’s degree is from Indiana State University, and J.D. degree is from Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law.
Matt’s passion is ensuring that each client’s wishes are carried out, and that family-owned businesses prosper now, and well into the future. Accomplishing those goals takes a willingness to understand each family’s particular dynamics, a high attention to detail, a commitment to working with each family’s other advisors, and a thorough knowledge of the tax code and USDA regulations. Each plan is different.
Matt often presents on topics related to estate planning and farming operations, including taxation, succession, and retirement, and always enjoys meeting new farm families and their advisors, to help them structure the best plans possible.
Matt has been with the firm since its founding (formerly Dobbs Legal Group, LLC), and now lives in Peru with his wife, Laura, and three daughters, Jordy, Eleanor, and Willow. When not helping families, or coaching/attending his daughters’ events, Matt enjoys watching the Green Bay Packers, splitting firewood, and working around the house.
