NEW YORK, NY, August 3, 2020 – Kaplan Hecker & Fink is delighted to announce that Partner Joshua Matz has been recognized by The National Law Journal as a 2020 D.C. Rising Star. Selected from a competitive pool of finalists, the 40 honorees represent a cross-section of practice areas – from appellate to first amendment to international trade – and have excelled on some of the biggest stages, representing high-profile clients and securing high-dollar victories.

In his interview with The National Law Journal, Matz cited serving among impeachment counsel to the House Judiciary Committee as his biggest accomplishment in practice, noting, “In that role, I advised the committee and Chairman [Jerrold] Nadler on all stages of the impeachment process—from resolutions, hearings, and litigation, to crafting the articles of impeachment against President [Donald] Trump, to presenting a powerful case in the Senate.”

Matz also acknowledged Kaplan Hecker & Fink Founding Partner Roberta (“Robbie”) Kaplan as his greatest lawyer mentor, stating, “In toppling [the Defense of Marriage Act], founding Times Up, suing modern-day Nazis, and holding Trump accountable, Robbie has taught me that bold, creative lawyers can help change the world.”
