Social Security Disability Attorneys
Matthew Noyes & Lorrie Robinson
Attorney Matthew Noyes
Matthew Noyes' interest in helping others started after he was involved in a car crash himself at the age of 16. As he was recovering from his fractured hip, torn rotator cuff and other injuries, Matthew learned how injuries affect almost every aspect of one's life. His first hand knowledge has helped him to aggressively illustrate how an injured or disabled person is much more than a pile of medical records.
Attorney Noyes is a partner and has been with Perenich, Caulfield, Avril & Noyes, PA since 1989. He has dedicated most of his adult life to helping victims of personal injury. As he worked on his education, Matthew was a legal assistant in personal injury law firms helping to ensure that those injured as a result of the negligence or carelessness of others were protected in our legal system. By the time he graduated law school, Matthew had over seven years of practical experience as a legal assistant helping injured people put the pieces of their lives back together.
Matthew Noyes was born in Naperville, Illinois and has been living in Pinellas County since 1976. He attended St. Cecelia Catholic School where his mother was his music teacher and graduated from Clearwater Central Catholic where his brother taught him chemistry and physics. Following high school, Matthew obtained two associates degrees from St. Petersburg Junior College and went on to earn his Bachelor of Arts degree cum laude from the University of South Florida and his Juris Doctorate at Stetson University College of Law in St. Petersburg, graduating sixth in his law school class despite working full time to support his family.
Attorney Noyes is admitted to practice in all Florida courts as well as the United States District Court. He is a member of the Florida Justice Association; the Association of Trial Lawyers of America; the Clearwater Bar Association and the St. Petersburg Bar Association.
When he's not working, Matthew enjoys spending time with his wife, Marti, and his two children, Krystal and Jacob. Krystal graduated with her 4-year degree from St. Petersburg College, but remains "Daddy's Little Girl." Jacob has recently continued the Noyes tradition at St. Cecelia School as a first grader. Matthew and his wife adopted Jacob from Guatemala, and he has been home since he was 18 months old. He is such a good little boy and the Noyes family is blessed to have him in our lives.
Attorney Lorrie E. Robinson
Lorraine Robinson is a native of Clearwater, a graduate of Clearwater High School and St. Petersburg Junior College. In 1976, she received a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Florida State University. She continued her education at the University of Florida School of Law where she received the degree of Juris Doctor in 1979. Her friends call her "Lorrie."
Lorrie joined Perenich, Carroll, Perenich, Avril, Caulfield & Noyes, P.A. in 1998 as an associate bringing more than twenty years experience to the firm. She currently focuses her practice in all areas of personal injury law. The Florida Bar recognizes her as a Board Certified Civil Trial Attorney, a distinction held by a very small percentage of Florida attorneys.
During her law school years, Lorrie worked as a clerk for the State Attorney's office in Clearwater. Following that experience, she served an internship with the Public Defender in West Palm Beach. After graduation Lorrie continued with the West Palm Beach Public Defender, trying hundreds of cases ranging from charges of minor misdemeanors to capital murder. During her last three years with the Public Defender, she served as the Chief of the Felony Division, supervising approximately 25 felony attorneys.
After ten years, Lorrie decided to leave the Public Defenders office and venture into civil trial practice. She spent three years with a firm in West Palm Beach practicing personal injury and commercial litigation. In 1992, Lorrie returned to the Tampa Bay Area and practiced for six years with a firm in Tampa where she participated in a number of complex cases in personal injury and commercial litigation.
Lorrie is a member of the Clearwater Bar Association, the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America and the Pinellas Chapter of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers, where she served as President for the 2001-2002 year.
