Stephen Stich Match

Stephen Stich Match is an attorney in Loevy & Loevy’s transparency practice, having joined in 2023. He represents clients in government accountability matters with an emphasis on the Freedom of Information Act.

Before joining Loevy & Loevy, Stephen worked as a Clinical Lecturer at the Yale Law School Media Freedom & Information Access Clinic. There he taught and litigated cases under FOIA, states’ public record laws, the First Amendment (both free speech and the right of access to courts), defamation, and related matters. His successes include forcing the release of records showing state jails recording and listening to privileged telephone calls between inmates and their lawyers, and hundreds of incident reports documenting inmates’ deaths. Before that, Stephen worked as a litigator at Foley Hoag and a two-year law clerk for Justice Peter Rubin of the Massachusetts Appeals Court.

Stephen holds a JD from Yale Law School, where he was a student in the Media Freedom & Information Access Clinic, to which he would later return to teach. For his clinical work, he received the Francis Wayland Prize for greatest proficiency in preparing and presenting a case in litigation. Stephen also has an MA from the University of Arizona and a BA with high distinction from the University of Toronto, both in philosophy.
