Matthew DePerno was born in Warren and raised in Troy, Michigan. He moved to Kalamazoo Michigan in 1995 after law school, where he currently resides with his wife of 25 years, Laura and their two dogs Toby and Kodak. Matt and Laura have three wonderful children who are all current or former students at Michigan State University (MSU). Natalie DePerno, 23, graduated with an accounting degree from MSU. Anthony DePerno, 21, is majoring in Supply Chain Management at MSU and is expected to graduate this Spring, 2022. Samantha DePerno, 19, began her sophomore year at MSU this past Fall, 2021.

Matt attended the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree. In 1994, he received his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and the following year his Master’s in Taxation Law (LL.M.) from New York University School of Law. After practicing law as a partner at a large law firm for 10 years, Matthew opened his own law practice in 2005, DePerno Law, PLLC. He has been defending America’s constitutional civil liberties for over 25 years. His wife, Laura, is a registered nurse and has experience in medical/surgical, transplant, cardiology, outpatient oncology, and trauma critical care.

In November 2020, Antrim County resident, William Bailey, hired Matthew to represent him in his lawsuit against Antrim County and the Michigan Secretary of State’s office, to conduct his own audit of the November general election irregularities in Antrim County. Matthew and his team captured forensic images of the Dominion Voting machines and conducted forensic analyses of those images to fully understand the errors and inconsistencies in the voting process and tabulation procedures prior to, during, and after the 2020 general election. Matthew has published 21 legal reports based on his findings from the forensic audit. Matt’s reports can be found at

For months, Matthew has tried to take his findings to the Michigan Legislature, asking for their support in demanding a Statewide full forensic audit, to no avail. Michiganders deserve more from their elected officials, and as American Citizens, our constitutional right to ensure fair, free, and secure elections.

Matthew has been fighting against tyranny in Michigan for many years, including protesting across the state against Whitmer and Nessel’s unconstitutional mask mandates, school and business lockdowns, vaccine mandates, and critical race theory. Matthew has been attacked many times from elected officials, including current Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, but he has not backed down.
