Matt Yates is a Christian literary agent with the Yates & Yates Literary Agency. Matt says: “I got here back in 1995. Graduating law school during a recession, the only job available was working for my father – then the “Law Offices of Sealy M. Yates.” Well, I’m still here. Now, my name is on the door and I sign all the checks. I came on board with the firm in the early stages of Sealy’s launching of the literary agency side of our business. As Sealy spanned the globe in search of the next bestseller, I was left to man the store. The breadth of experience has been invaluable. I’ve done real estate transactions and estate plans, handled multi-million dollar civil litigation and a forward triangular corporate merger, organized scores of business entities and non-profits, worked on feature-length movies, and even did one divorce and an adoption. While we don’t do much of that work any more, those experiences give our current clients the benefit of all the knowledge of a full service law firm.
I was born and raised in Orange County. Perhaps because my Dad and I look alike and sound alike, I knew I always wanted to be a lawyer. I have often said, “I knew where I wanted to go to college before I knew what high school I would go to, and I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up even before that.” I went to college at Baylor University – my college selection criteria were an out-of-state, Christian school, with a Division I football team. And, even disregarding that my Dad was a Baylor alum, there was only one choice. Baylor was followed by law school at Pepperdine University. I was admitted to several law schools, but only one in Malibu with a 270 degree view of the Pacific Ocean. I’m not sure if this section should mention things like honor’s societies, Dean’s lists, our athletic awards (Yes, I am the “Matt Yates” who captained the defense of the Baylor Lacrosse team from 1989-91), but since Curtis has a longer list of those, I’ll skip it. FUN FACT: I am also a certified agent with the NFL Players Association. So if you know anyone with 4.4 speed, give me a call.”
