Mr. Eaton has 29 years’ experience as a progressive law enforcement professional conducting criminal/regulatory investigations and corporate/individual background examinations. Most recently Matt has served as Supervisory Investigator at Colorado’s Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) where he managed criminal investigators and civilian staff in the Denver Metro and Longmont Field Offices. During his tenure at MED he conducted approximately 10,000 criminal investigations and compliance reviews which included regulatory and financial audits. Matt is well known for his ability to maintain working relationships with cannabis industry leaders and external stakeholders in resolving issues. He was also responsible for planning, developing and implementing reports and field inspection protocols for the agency. Furthermore, he played an instrumental role in recommending changes to current regulations and identifying essential language for new legislation in the State of Colorado.
He received his Bachelors of Science Degree from Biola University and currently maintains a Colorado Post Certificate.

This wealth of experience and public service will prove invaluable in serving HdL clients. As with all our staff, Matt was selected because he possesses specific insight and expertise that will add value and perspective to the information, reports and services we provide our clients.
As we continue to invest in building a team and structure to help promote our mission of supporting local governments through the services we provide, we are confident Matt will be a tremendous asset towards our company’s success.
