Trust Matt Kaiser
If I ever again need legal services anywhere in the DC metro area, I'll call Matt. He knows his stuff. He puts in the time and effort to think through your case. He knows how to focus a case on the relevant facts and make smart, strategic decisions. He's an excellent lawyer. On top of that, he's also just a good decent human being who will treat you with understanding and respect. Top of the line. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Smart and compassionate
Working with Matt Kaiser during the most difficult period of my life made my whole legal experience much more bearable. Not only did he bring his sharp mind and compassionate heart to our conversations, but also his great wit. Being able to laugh instead of cry, even while dealing with a heart-wrenching situation, allowed me to think more clearly about decisions I needed to make. His advice was always just right, both from a legal stand-point and from an understanding of human nature. I recommend Matt whole-heartedly.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Matt Kaiser is one of the most impressive lawyers that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. His attention to detail coupled with his superior intellect puts him in the top tier of legal powerhouses in the US. Matt has a keen ability to relate to his clients and anticipate the jury's reactions to the issues. He cares about the client, the case, and most importantly, will work tirelessly to produce the needed result. In my book, hands down, one of the best lawyers in practice today."

Matt has an outstanding and deserved reputation as an attorney with excellent credentials. He adheres to a high regard to ethics and excellence and is noted as such by the Bar and the Courts."
Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 21

"As a first-class lawyer, Matt Kaiser is the very first person I call whenever I have a question on federal criminal defense matters. He graduated at the top of his class at Georgetown Law. He has worked at two of the best law firms in the D.C. area, Williams & Connolly and Zuckerman Spaeder. He has worked as a federal public defender. He is personable and smart. He is absolutely committed to the best interests of his clients. And he knows his way around a courtroom."

"I have been both a criminal defense lawyer and a prosecutor. I've seen many, many attorneys in that time, and, quite simply, Matt is one of the best lawyers that I know. He's creative, smart, and knows how to talk to a jury - an unusual combination. If I ever got in trouble, Matt would be the first attorney that I would call."
