Our Team

Matthew R. Mangapora

attorney at law

Matt is a native of the Mahoning Valley, where his family’s ties run deep in the region’s industrial heritage. Matt inherited a strong work ethic from his grandparents, who were employed at the General Motors plant in Lordstown and Youngstown Sheet & Tube, as well as from his parents, who are also natives of the Mahoning Valley and alumni of Youngstown State University.

During his undergraduate studies, Matt served as a Teaching Assistant at Youngstown State University, where he graduated cum laude with a degree in Engineering and was actively involved in the Tau Beta Pi Honors Society. Matt’s experience advocating for injured plaintiffs and their families began during law school, where he clerked at a prominent local firm in his hometown.

Prior to joining Kisling, Nestico & Redick, Matt served as an Associate Attorney at a defense firm in Pittsburgh, representing Fortune 100 companies and insurance entities in various legal matters. With experience representing both injured plaintiffs and insurance companies, Matt quickly realized his calling was to represent plaintiffs and their families in the aftermath of unforeseen accidents.

Matt is not only dedicated to his professional and academic pursuits but also has a strong passion for fitness and sports. He values time spent with his family and actively supports both of his alma maters along with the Green Bay Packers.
