Matt's practice focuses on criminal defense, government investigations, and civil rights litigation. Matt's experience with government investigation began as a policeman, where he spent 13 years and rose to the rank of Captain where he would eventually lead internal affairs investigations for one of Tennessee largest counties. Now in private practice, Matt takes selective cases where his clients are under criminal or civil investigation by various government agencies, including the U.S. Department of Justice, the Office of Inspector General, and state authorities. His criminal defense and government investigation practice includes defending both felony and misdemeanors, regulatory enforcement actions, false claim violations, and assisting clients in responding to subpoenas and other investigatory practices.
