He was a Special assistant to State Attorney General of Arizona between 1929 and 1931 and then the United States Attorney for the District of Arizona between 1933 and 1935.

Mathews was a federal judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Mathews was nominated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 13, 1935, to a seat vacated by William Henry Sawtelle; he was confirmed by the United States Senate on March 20, 1935, and received his commission on March 23, 1935.
