Matt Armbrecht and Tim Maher met in their first year of law school, sitting next to each other in several classes. After law school, they parted ways. Several years later, they found themselves working together at a small downtown Minneapolis law firm, where they also met Jerzy Guzior.

After several years, they decided to open their own law firm. On January 23, 2006, Guzior Armbrecht Maher began providing legal services to the public.
