Other Professionals


Matt Eisenbrandt, Director of Transnational Investigations
Direct Line: 236.521.4322
Email: [email protected]

For two decades, Matt’s work has been fueled by his passion for human rights and dedication to seeking justice and accountability on behalf of survivors.

As CFM’s Director of Transnational Investigations, Matt works as an integral part of our legal team to investigate and develop cases on an international level. With a U.S. law accreditation* and a strong background in international law, Matt travels worldwide to meet clients, interview witnesses and conduct research for our human rights cases.

Matt has worked closely with and advocated for survivors of human rights abuses throughout his career. Recognizing the legal process can be challenging for survivors, Matt endeavours to make sure clients are supported throughout the process. The international nature of his work has given him a strong background in handling complex and sensitive situations in a way that is culturally respectful.

Prior to joining CFM, Matt was the Legal Director of the Canadian Centre for International Justice, where he spent nine years overseeing the organization’s casework on behalf of survivors seeking justice for torture, war crimes, and other serious human rights violations. He previously served as the Legal Director for the Center for Justice & Accountability in the U.S., where he litigated successful trials against military commanders from El Salvador, Haiti, and Honduras.

Matt was also a member of the trial team in a case against a Salvadoran man for his role in the death-squad murder of beloved archbishop, and now saint, Oscar Romero. That case is the subject of Matt’s award-winning book “Assassination of a Saint”, which was published in 2017.

*Matt is not called to the bar in BC or elsewhere in Canada. His current status with the California bar is inactive.
