Matt Kahn is a trial lawyer with the Butler Law Firm. Matt is committed to representing individuals who have been critically injured or killed due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of others. Matt’s practice includes advocating for victims of serious car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, shooting crimes, and other acts of negligence. Matt also fights for individuals whose civil rights have been violated by police officers’ use of excessive force.
Matt grew up in Dunwoody, Georgia, where he attended Dunwoody High School. He went on to study political science at Georgia State University and get his law degree from Emory University School of Law. As a law student, Matt spent one summer interning at the Georgia Court of Appeals with the Honorable Sara Doyle and working at a full-service law firm with offices throughout the country, one semester externing in AT&T’s litigation department, and another summer working at a boutique firm focusing on complex personal injury and business litigation.
Matt started his career splitting his time between catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases, appellate work, and business litigation. By handling appeals and complex cases, like contract disputes, RICO violations, securities fraud, and class actions, Matt honed his attention to detail, legal writing, and the ability to distill complicated ideas into understandable ones. Matt realized that he wanted to spend his career fighting for people and families instead of businesses. In 2019, he found his home at Butler Law Firm.
Matt uses his experiences to fight for his clients and get the best results possible.
