Former Criminal Prosecutor - Former Deputy Attorney General - Trial Attorney

I am a trial attorney in the greater Los Angeles area.

I specialize in criminal defense, family law and professional license defense in the state of California.

I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and Political Science from UCLA in 1999. In 2001, I received Master’s Degree in Policy Studies (MPP) from UCLA School of Public Policy, Social Research and Urban Planning (currently UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs), and a law degree from University of San Diego in 2004.

I was a Deputy District Attorney in Riverside prosecuting misdemeanor crimes, general felonies, domestic violence cases, child abuse cases, sex offenses and drug related crimes.

Subsequently, I worked at the California Attorney General’s Office in the Licensing Section. As a Deputy Attorney General, I represented state licensing agencies, both within and outside of the Department of Consumer Affairs, mainly in disciplinary actions filed against licensed professionals before the Office of Administrative Hearings. 

In my private practice, I have successfully handled both civil and criminal cases in the areas of family law, civil litigation, and criminal defense.

I am fluent in both English and Polish.

DUI case
My name is Omar , On October, 2016 I got a DUI , I was very worried and scared because I’ve never had any prior history on my record. I had no idea where to start. The day after I got my DUI I called so many attorneys and Among them, Natalia Matusik was the only person I truly felt very comfortable with to handle my case. A few days later she took my case and I Can’t be more happy and thankful of the outcome and all her valuable help. She represented me in a courteous and professional way. She was very informative,cooperative and reachable via phone, text, e-mail and even person to person at all time. She met with me to study my case and to inform me of all my rights and responsibilities. Then she examined all possible outcomes and informed me of ways to fight my case in court. A few months later she managed to reached an agreement with the District attorney and the judge to downgrade my criminal charges to what might have been a DUI into a Dry Reckless charge. I would definitely recommend her to anyone dealing with this or any case, she took the stress out of dealing with this unfortunate event in my life and I look forward to getting her help once again in order to finish my probation early.

Thank you for the amazing job on my case !!
I had found myself at odds with my former employer. I had no idea where to begin and the Labor Department was not as informative as I hoped it would be. I was stressed, confused and restless. In no time after Natalia accepted my case all of my anxiety went away. Unlike other lawyers I consulted with, she is brilliantly informative and focused. She went over the smallest of details and was absolutely honest about what my expectations should be. Natalia is extremely supportive and professional: she always responds promptly and does not leave you hanging in the status quo. She genuinely made me feel as if I was her priority and that had a calming effect I needed in order to get through this process. Aside from courtesy and friendliness you can also count on her knowledge and efficiency. The settlement of my case exceeded my expectations. I could not have hoped for more. I am absolutely thankful and happy to have found such a dedicated person to help me when I needed it most. I highly recommended her to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy lawyer. I know for fact Natalia will fight for you and do everything in her power to help you.

Retaining Ms. Natalia Matusik Law is the best choice I ever made. A rarity in a city filled with super attorney's who bill for filing paper from one side of their desk to the other. I'm the single mom of a 9 year old daughter. My two previous “super attorney's” dragged me and my daughter through a 2.5-year divorce process, leading to another 2 year civil matter involving both my former husband and his affair partner, now his third wife. I hired Ms. Matusik in a family related restraining order case, which proceeded to trial. Ms. Matusik “got it” from day one due to her knowledge of the law, previous case history, eye for detail and methodical skill-set along with attention to my specific experiences. My case settled with a final court order and I was both relieved and satisfied with the outcome. The integrity with which my case was presented never faltered. Ms. Matusik provided exemplary legal guidance and compassion for the realities of the family law system every step of the way. Ms. Matusik's expertise and knowlegde of California law allowed me to function productivly during the day and sleep calmly at night. Ms. Matusik is punctual, returns texts, phone calls and emails. She's a prolific writer; describing facts and quoting laws like clergy. Her decorum is impecable, dressed to the nines, a spit fire in the court room, while gracefully deconstructing the other side's testimony as a skillful swords woman. Matusik and her firm are client centered and outcome driven. She listens intently and geniunely cares about your family as well as your case, keeping integrity and humaness center stage. I reccomend Matusik Law to anyone with honor and honesty. In the court room Matusik is prepared and astoundly brilliant she is the pinacle of polite professionalism when dealing with Judge's clerks, other attorney's and former spouses. The State of California's legal system is mired down with extraneous case loads, Judge's dockets are filled to the brim. Often, cases are repeatedly re-calendared. . Court is a place you do not want to spend your precious time or hard earned savings. Even among couples who have the ability to communicate, divorce is an extremely tricky business to navigate alone. You deserve the best legal representation possible, serving your needs, while working for a positive outcome for you and your child. Ms. Natalia Matusik Law is an angel, a saving grace, a fine wine. She wrapped her arms around me and my family protecting us. She will provide you with all of this and more.

Excellent attorney - pleasure to work with.
Ms. Matusik was very instrumental in helping resolve my case. She actively worked in a timely manner to have my case dropped within 3 weeks of hiring her. I highly recommend her – attentive, responsive and very proactive professional.

I am a retired Retired Marine, Retired Law Enforcement Officer, and current Private Investigator. I first met Natalia Matusik years ago while she worked as Deputy District Attorney for the Riverside County District Attorney's Office. As a Law Enforcement Officer I worked several investigations ranging from domestic violence to narcotic cases with Ms. Matusik. During these cases her level of knowledge pertaining to the law and the operations of the justice system not only impressed me but also assisted me in several other cases independent from her own. I would and have on many occasions reach our to Ms. Matusik for advice and direction on various different cases. I was always able to reach, and receive very effective advise as to the direction I needed for my investigations. Recently I heard of Ms. Matusik's departure from the District Attorney's office and informed of her practice. Once hearing this I aggressively sought her attention and advice again. We have recently worked several cases together as Attorney and Private Investigator. Again her attention to detail, knowledge of the justice system, professionalism, and commitment has astounded me. A true professional with the knowledge and commitment to her clients.
