“Many of the lawyers in the firm come from the public defenders office and prosecutors offices. They translate the ability to work with people under pressure into private investigations and other settings.”
– The Legal 500
KaiserDillon PLLC has extensive experience representing clients in white-collar criminal matters.
Two of our partners, Matt Kaiser and Jon Jeffress, are former Assistant Federal Public Defenders. Another, Justin Dillon, is a former Assistant United States Attorney. And the fourth, William Pittard, has handled white-collar matters for more than a decade, including here, in government, and elsewhere in private practice. Given our backgrounds, we are uniquely suited to obtaining the best possible result for our clients in criminal cases.
We understand that our clients in criminal cases are fighting for their lives. In addition, the consequences of a conviction can go far beyond possible prison time. If you’re facing criminal charges, it will affect your reputation, your career, your family, and your finances. We thrive when working for clients when the stakes are high.
The firm has represented clients in criminal matters in numerous federal and state courts around the country. We have a strong track record of trial work, victories on pretrial motions, successful sentencing advocacy, and negotiations to resolve cases short of a trial.
Sample representations in federal court include:
- A physician charged with using mislabeled prescription drugs, and helping others import those mislabeled drugs.
- A stockbroker accused of defrauding his clients.
- A businessman accused of conspiring with a high-ranking government official to commit visa fraud.
- An attorney accused of participating in a real estate investment fraud scheme in his role as the general counsel of an underwriting company.
- An employer accused of visa fraud.
- A tax preparer accused of submitting fraudulent tax returns for her clients.
- A businessman accused of participating in criminal violations of our immigration laws.
- A union official charged with soliciting kickbacks with respect to publicly funded waste-treatment projects.

- A federal government employee accused of improperly diverting his agency’s funds to himself.
- Many other clients accused of federal offenses such as obstruction of justice, making false statements, narcotics- and weapons-related crimes, and child pornography.
We treat every client’s case as if it were our own. Our depth of experience and compassion allow us effectively to advocate for our clients, while helping them through what is invariably one of the most difficult times in their lives.
