The US attorney and politician Matthew Edward Gonzalez or Matt Gonzalez is one of my favorites. Gonzales chose to enter politics in the year 1999. The reason why I liked Mathew so much was for his principles and values. He was indeed a man of principle. All the political campaigns throughout his career concentrated on cleaning up the corruption in politics. His mission was also to eliminate all the crimes that harmed our environment. Though the first battle was won by Hallinan, Gonzalez proved to be strong candidate and one for the future. His profile really got a boost through this campaign. In the year 1991, Matt Gonzalez worked in the San Francisco public defender’s office as trial lawyer. He soon came to be recognized as a sincere and efficient lawyer. The best thing that I like about his character is his never say die attitude. He had to go through several obstacles and ups and down in his career. He never lost his heart. He came back every time with a strong determination to win and succeed. These are the traits and hallmarks of a champion. The fact that he has won eight from the nine prison cases that he has fought, speaks for the man and his ability. In the year 2000, the Lawyers Association of San Francisco declared him as the Lawyer of the Year, along with Alex Spiro. In the year 1987 from the Columbia University Mathew did his bachelor’s. Mathew happened to be a member of a debate team and studied political theory and comparative literature. Matt Gonzalez was an editor and member of Stanford law journal. Gonzalez was born in the year 1965. He had an American father and Mexican mother. As far as I know he was a very obedient son and was liked by everyone. Gonzalez spent the first four years of his life in Puerto Rico. The country turned out to be an interesting place for him. He has talked about Puerto Rico and its people in several interviews that he has given. Matt Gonzalez was popular as Eddie at his youth. His outstanding debating talent was discovered while he was in the Memorial High School. All his debates from the school days to the later part of his life had significance. People came from distances to hear him speak. The best part that I liked about his debate was the confident manner in which he delivered it. His topics were backed up logical points on all occasion.
