Jeffrey Matthews Joins HKA’s Dallas Office as Partner

Jeffrey Matthews has joined the Dallas office of HKA, a risk and dispute consulting firm, as a partner in the Forensic Accounting and Commercial Damages (FACD) practice.

Matthews brings nearly 30 years of experience providing financial investigations, forensic accounting and litigation support to law firms, legal departments and government agencies. Matthews, a financial expert on corruption and white collar crime, has testified in several court cases and arbitrations.

He has extensive experience in matters related to the Lanham Act, Sarbanes-Oxley, the False Claims Act, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), and is in Who’s Who Legal’s Investigations 2024 guide.

“We are delighted to welcome Jeff to HKA as we continue to grow our forensic accounting and commercial damages team. His experience calculating damages resulting from breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, diminution of value and misappropriation of trade secrets, as well as his experience providing expert testimony on many occasions, will strengthen HKA’s position in the FACD market, allowing us continue to expand and improve our service to clients,” said Ave Tucker, partner and strategic growth advisor at HKA.

Matthews joins from the consulting firm StoneTurn, where he was a partner since 2019 and launched the firm’s Dallas office.

Prior to that, he was a national partner in charge of forensic and litigation services at Weaver, vice president of Charles River Associates, and managing director of LECG. Matthews began his career at Grant Thornton, where he later became a partner.

In addition to his consulting work, Matthews has taught a master’s degree course in professional accounting since 2012 at the University of Texas at Arlington.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Louisiana Monroe and is a certified public accountant and certified fraud examiner.

“HKA’s extensive experience and global platform will allow me to continue growing as a professional and serve my clients at the highest level. HKA’s commitment to the practice and the market is nothing short of impressive,” said Matthews.

HKA recently welcomed Chad Salsbery as a Chicago-based partner in its FACD practice, which supports clients with forensic, regulatory and fraud investigations for disputes in areas such as breach of contract, intellectual property and mergers and acquisitions.
