Matt Kaiser helps two kinds of clients: people who are facing a crisis that threatens their reputation, livelihood, or liberty; and lawyers, or their clients, who need counsel about issues involving professional responsibility or legal malpractice.
As a former assistant federal public defender, Matt has substantial litigation and courtroom experience. He has been described by Fox News as a “top notch white collar defense lawyer.” He has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America for his work in White-Collar Criminal Defense and in 2018 he was named by Super Lawyers as one of the 100 top lawyers in Washington D.C.
Matt teaches legal ethics at Georgetown University Law Center and has taught continuing legal education courses to lawyers on a variety of topics around the country. He has taught trial advocacy to other lawyers through the National Institute for Trial Advocacy.
Matt currently serves as Vice Chair of the D.C. Board on Professional Responsibility, a nine-member board appointed by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals that adjudicates cases of attorney misconduct and is responsible for administering D.C.’s disciplinary system for attorneys. He is a member of the Edward Bennett Williams Inn of Court, a Permanent Member of the Fourth Circuit Judicial Conference, and has served in a number of roles with both the DC Bar and the Bar Association of DC.
