Attorney Profile

From his law office in Raleigh, North Carolina, attorney Matthew J. Golden fights hard to protect the rights and liberties of those accused of any type of criminal offense. In addition to criminal and DUI defense, he also represents injured and disabled workers with their efforts at securing their rightful compensation as well as business owners, employees and individuals who need to bring suit against a company for fraudulent, unfair or misleading business practices.

Since establishing his law firm in 2011, Mr. Golden has achieved unprecedented success advocating on behalf of a diverse range of clients. Trained in the same sobriety tests that law enforcement uses to determine driver impairment, Mr. Golden can better challenge the prosecution's evidence in order to secure the most favorable outcome possible. Along with DUI and other serious traffic violations, he has helped hundreds of clients facing all types of misdemeanor and felony charges.

Likewise, those who experienced any violation of their basic rights as consumers or employees when dealing with unscrupulous business owners can rely on Mr. Golden for exceptional advocacy and support in order to achieve the justice they seek.

Recognized for his impeccable professionalism and legal abilities, Mr. Golden has earned top marks from AVVO for criminal defense and DUI defense, and The National Trial Lawyers has voted him among the Top 100 Criminal Defense Trial Lawyers in the country.

An accomplished author, he co-wrote a best-selling book entitled A Cup of Coffee with 10 of the Top DUI Attorneys in the United States, and he has conducted numerous lectures on a variety of legal topics related to effective trial tactics and defense strategies. He is also highly active in a number of local, state and national bar associations, including the American Institute of DUI/DWI Attorneys, the Wake County Academy of Criminal Trial Lawyers and the Tenth Judicial District Bar, among others.

A 2007 graduate of the University of Richmond, Mr. Golden obtained his Juris Doctor from Campbell University Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law. He received his license to practice in North Carolina in 2011, and he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina.
