Matt Rinaldi of House District 115 was elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 2014 to represent the Northwest portion of Dallas County. Representative Rinaldi currently sits on both the Committee on Judiciary & Civil Jurisprudence as well as the Committee on Agriculture & Livestock. During the 85th Legislative Session, he was elected to serve on the Republican Caucus Policy Committee.

Representative Rinaldi attended James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, where he graduated with a B.B.A. in Economics, and Boston University School of Law, where he earned his Juris Doctor. Currently, Matt works as a commercial litigation attorney while also serving on the board of directors of a publicly-traded real estate investment trust in the hotel and hospitality industry.

Since joining the House in 2015, Representative Rinaldi has proven himself as an unflinching conservative and a trusted source on constitutional issues. Fulfilling the promises he made when originally running for the House of Representatives, he continues to be a strong advocate for limited government, personal liberty and free market policies, secure borders, Second Amendment rights, and the protection of life.

As someone who believes community service to be an indispensable part of American life, Matt has represented numerous families in the “Adoption Saturday” project, a program created to speed up the adoption process of abused and neglected children in Dallas County. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus and is an alumnus of Leadership Irving/Las Colinas. Matt and his wife, Corley, attend St. Ann Catholic Parish in Coppell.
