About Us


Hey there –

I’m Walt Mathews, the founder and managing member of Fraud Dog, LLC, a company committed to the investor — to prevent, detect and analyze securities and investment fraud.  Frauddog.com was inspired by Breeze, my family’s German Shorthaired Pointer.  Breeze is always on the hunt, just like FraudDog.com.

Walt is also the founder and managing partner of Mathews Giberson LLP (formerly known as Walter J. Mathews, P.A.). Walt concentrates his legal practice on securities and commercial litigation.

From 2002 until 2006, Walt was Senior Counsel with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in the Division of Enforcement, Southeast Regional Office.  At the SEC, Walt represented the interests of hundreds of investors by investigating and litigating potential violations of the federal securities laws including,

Potential violations of the federal securities laws including, but not limited to:  fraudulent unregistered offerings, accounting frauds, insider trading, market manipulations, options backdating, Sarbanes-Oxley violations, Regulation D violations and false press releases.  Walt was also a counselor for the EEOC involving SEC employment matters and an intern coordinator where he supervised over a dozen interns in the SEC’s Summer Honors Law Program.

Prior to joining the SEC, Walt was an associate at several prestigious law firms in Miami where he focused on securities and commercial litigation.  In addition, he served as counsel to the Receiver in a multi-million dollar Ponzi scheme and his litigation experience included an accounting negligence case.

Walt resides in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with his wife, two sons and Breeze, the family’s German Shorthaired Pointer.  He is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys skiing, sailing, and physical exercise.  He also competed in four marathons.
