Why I Became a Defense Attorney


Three reasons:  To help people in trouble; to protect individual rights; and to defend the Constitution. 


I grew up watching my mother help people when they most needed it and I know it made a deep impression on me.  I learned so much from watching her.  Most importantly, she taught me to “meet people where they are” and see what you could offer of yourself to help them.  She was the best counselor and mediator you’d ever meet and I strive in my own career to be half as good as she was in her career.  She is gone now but I know that I carry her spirit with me whenever I am actively engaged in helping someone in crisis. 


I also grew up as a Navy junior and that, too, made a deep impression on me.  My father was a distinguished Naval Officer who flew jets during the Vietnam War.  He risked his life to defend our way of life and the Constitution.  He knew that if there weren’t citizens who were willing to stand up and fight on behalf of all of us we could lose everything.  I am proud to say that I have followed in my father’s footsteps in defending our rights and the Constitution; I have just done it in a different way. 


Very early on in my career, I saw how easily all of our rights can be eroded if there aren’t lawyers out there fighting to protect the rights of all who are accused – the guilty and the innocent.  If we don’t demand that the promises of the Constitution are delivered, we lose them.  The burden to prove guilt is on the government not on the defendant.  The Constitution demands that we view people accused of crime as innocent unless and until they are proven guilty.  And guilt must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.  These are amazing concepts that separate our country and our laws from the rest of the world.  We lose them if we don’t fight for them. 


At the core, these are the reasons that I chose to become a defense attorney.

I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be by myside through this entire ordeal. From the minute we first got in contact it was work. She goes above and beyond! When there is an injustice at play she ensures it is exposed and dealt with. DO NOT HESITATE TO WORK WITH HER!!!

Meghan Shines Again!
Meghan helped me for a second time in traffic court, this time for reckless driving (a misdemeanor). From the beginning, she explained everything to me: the possible penalties I was facing, what my options were on how to handle it, and what to expect on the day in court. I took her advice and went through her recommended steps before the court date. On the big day, she took care of everything - and Meghan got my charge dismissed! There's no way I could have done it without her. She definitely knows her stuff! I'm so thankful she's just a phone call away if I ever find myself in another jam.

1st Rate Attorney!
Meghan was referred to me by someone else, my not having any local experience with a criminal attorney. I needed a lawyer very quickly as I was due for a hearing in less than a week. I left a message on a holiday weekend and Meghan actually called me back on a Sunday and spent a significant amount of time discussing my case and putting me at ease. She advised me of the various possibilities and options and she was very accurate. She is knowledgeable of the law and also knows/is known by various officials, which was very helpful. The end result was better than I could have hoped for, the costs were less than expected and the overall experience was mentally more manageable due to Meghan carefully walking me through the steps and what to expect. If I ever need a lawyer in the future, Meghan will be the first person I call and I will definitely be recommending her to others.

Excellent Council
I commissioned Meghan to represent me because I don't reside in Virginia and wanted to challenge a traffic infraction. She always kept me abreast and also gave me realistic expectations. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Great representation!
Meghan is a fantastic attorney that cares about her clients, works in their best interest and will go the extra mile as necessary. Not only was the fact finding, due diligence and representation by Meghan top notch so was the (case) disposition. I couldn't have been happier with the outcome. Meghan is truly 'best in class'!

Knows Her Stuff!
Ms. Matulka represented me for a traffic violation in Fairfax County. She definitely knows her stuff and is really on the ball. She's professional and friendly. I was nervous to be in court, but she explained everything that was going to happen, understood all of the ins and outs of my situation, and handled it like a pro. I was so relieved that I had her on my side. Hope I never have to go back to court, but if I do, would definitely go to her again!
