On June 6, 2017 at its 146th Annual Luncheon, the Bar Association of the District of Columbia formally swore in Matt Kaiser, partner at Kaiser Dillon PLLC, as their 130th President. Matt is a past Treasurer and former member of the Board of Directors of the BADC, a former assistant federal public defender with the Maryland Federal Public Defender’s Office, a former law clerk of Judge Catherine C. Blake of the US District Court for the District of Maryland, a former attorney with Williams & Connolly LLP and Zuckerman Spaeder LLP, a graduate of the Georgetown University Law Center, of Tulane University and of the College of Wooster.
“It is my honor to be elected as President of the Bar Association of the District of Columbia,” said Kaiser. “Washington, D.C. is a lawyers’ town. We have the nation’s highest density of courts, and the largest and most diverse body of practicing attorneys of any city in the world. I look forward to continuing my work with BADC’s officers, staff, and committees as we work to serve the needs of the lawyers in this city.”
Kaiser continued, “This year’s theme is ‘The Role of Lawyers in a Constitutional Democracy.’ We will recognize and celebrate that role, as we foster and promote relationships among members of the bar.”
Chief Judge Anna Blackburne-Rigsby of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals performed the induction.
