Matthew D. Krueger United State's Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin

Michael Dean Krueger is the representative of the federal government in Wisconsin and currently serving as the U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of the state. The young Milwaukee born attorney is known for his successful professional career.

September 22, 2017, was the day when the POTUS Donald Trump introduced the candidate for the Eastern Wisconsin district. Krueger was an obvious choice for the position because of his proven experience as an attorney at major law firms. Furthermore, he stands with the President in his mission to bring prosperity to people and make the country a safe place.


Education and Career

After passing from high school, Matthew Krueger chose to enrol in the B.S. Honours program. Keeping in mind his interest, he selected political science and business as majors.  He graduated in 2000 and later joined the University of Minnesota Law School in 2006. Not only was he a good student, but he also participated in extracurricular activities and led student societies. He also served as the editor-in-chief for the Minnesota Law Review journal.

Following the completion of his J.D. degree, Krueger joined the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit as a law clerk in 2006. A year later, he moved to the U.S. Department of Justice as a Bristow Fellow. The next step in his professional career was to become an Associate at Sidley Austin LLP. He worked there for over four years before getting an appointment as the Assistant U.S. Attorney. Five years into working as the Assistant Attorney, Matthew D. Krueger became the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.

The central focus of the Milwaukee-based Attorney has been on false advertising litigation, patents and copyright matters, administrative law appeals, environmental issues, terrorism, human trafficking, child abuse, and corporate crimes. Since he was appointed the Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, he has been leading a staff of over 75 employees and overseeing legal matters in 28 counties.


Remarkable Achievements

The experienced Attorney has an eye on legal matters. Thus he published many articles in major publications to share valuable insights. Prominent journals such as Columbia Law Review have published his writings. Since his oath-taking ceremony on February 22, 2018, he has been striving to serve Wisconsin by eliminating crimes in the area.

Krueger’s aim to convict criminals has brought him face-to-face with some high-profile people. An example is a case against Mark A. Ruppelt. The charges against the former Wisconsin attorney are that he scammed his client. In exchange for reducing the sentence for his client, he received a bribe on behalf of AUSA. It is important to note that the officials of AUSA were not aware of this treacherous scheme.

Convicting such criminals can set an example and assist in making the district safe for everyone.

The entire world is facing one of the worst pandemic, COVID ’19, and Wisconsin is no exception. During these challenging times, the office of U.S. Attorney in Eastern Wisconsin is taking measures to protect people. Matthew D. Krueger and his team continue to work for the safety and rights of citizens while trying their best to steer clear of the infectious disease.
