Matthew Graves is a litigation and compliance partner in DLA Piper's Washington, DC office, who represents corporations and individuals in government investigations, criminal and regulatory proceedings, and civil litigation. He is a seasoned trial lawyer who has tried nearly 50 cases, including two dozen criminal and civil jury trials and has unique experience in resolving complex international investigations with the Department of Justice and regulators. Matt has been named a future leader in the investigations bar by Who's Who Legal and Global Investigations Review after their research found that he drew "widespread plaudits for his deep knowledge of contentious regulatory proceedings."

Prior to joining DLA Piper, Matt worked as an Assistant United States Attorney in the District of Columbia for nearly a decade, spending most of his tenure in the United States Attorney's Office in the Office's Fraud and Public Corruption Section, which he ultimately headed. There, he handled a number of prominent matters, including leading investigations that resulted in the foreign and international business organizations that were the subjects of these investigations collectively paying in excess of US$2 billion in financial penalties for violations of U.S. laws and the prosecution of Congressman Jesse L. Jackson Jr. and his wife for felonies that occurred during his tenure in Congress.
