Born and raised in Natchitoches, Louisiana, Matt Nowlin is a 2011 graduate from the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.  Prior to joining Keiser Law Firm, PLC in March of 2018, Matt represented the State of Louisiana as in-house counsel to the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, the single state entity responsible for developing, implementing, and enforcing a comprehensive coastal protection and restoration master plan, and was the lead state agency in coordinating recovery from the Deepwater Horizon explosion and contamination.  As in-house counsel, Matt worked extensively with federal, state, and local agencies, political subdivisions, non-profits, and private companies on resolving a multitude of contractual, environmental, construction, governmental ethics, and disaster relief issues.  Matt moved back to Central Louisiana in 2013 where he developed his private practice with a focus on representing state licensing boards and those who appear before them, regulatory issues, municipal and governmental liability and defense, police liability, property and casualty, automobile and trucking liability, and workers' compensation.  Matt is admitted to all state and federal courts in Louisiana, as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit.
