The Firm: Matt Rawls

Attorney Matt Rawls

Overview.

Matt Rawls joined Boone Beale in 2012 to focus on criminal, traffic and DUI defense, as well as various aspects of entertainment law. He brings his skill and passion to every case, zealously fighting for the rights of his clients.

Education & Experience.

Mr. Rawls received his Juris Doctor from Pepperdine University School of Law in 2009 and his Bachelor of Arts in political science from James Madison University. He also interned at the Virginia Office of the Attorney General, working with the Anti-Gang Task Force Division, where he helped draft several pieces of legislation and changes to Virginia’s sentencing guidelines. Additionally, he spent several years working for Young Life in Norfolk, VA.

Prior to joining Boone Beale, Mr. Rawls was an associate at Ferguson, Rawls & Raines in Suffolk, VA, where he worked on a broad range of matters, specifically focusing on criminal and civil litigation. Mr. Rawls left Suffolk in 2011 to serve as in-house counsel for Spacebomb Records, LLC, a bourgeoning Richmond-based record label with which he is still involved.

Mr. Rawls is passionate about fighting for the rights of his clients. Quick on his feet and dependable in any situation, his comfort and experience in the courtroom combined with the fervor he brings to each and every case gives him a unique ability to represent and defend his clients.

Mr. Rawls understands the importance of the rights granted under the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to every person in the United States. There are few rights more important than those that protect people from unreasonable investigation, prosecution, and punishment in criminal matters. Almost no area of the law touches so closely on the most fundamental issues of freedom. Too often, though, these inalienable rights are trampled, which is why Mr. Rawls is so passionate about fighting for your rights.

He also brings the same passion and zeal to his representation of clients involved in the entertainment industry. This is why he chose to attend Pepperdine University School of Law because it offered an invaluable opportunity to learn more about this industry.

Personal Interests.

Additionally, as a founder of Spacebomb Records, LLC, Mr. Rawls has been involved with innumerable aspects of the music business. As a result, he has gained a unique perspective and understanding of the business from the ground-up. Mr. Rawls has worked with clients in various different area of entertainment law. He has represented artists and musicians, records labels and distribution companies, and clients involved in film and television and production. He uses his passion, creativity, and unique experience to help his clients find useful and creative solutions to the issues they face, both with artists and with business and non-profits that work with artists.

"One of the great privileges of my career is the opportunity if affords me to use my training and experience to help people in areas that they often have difficulties helping themselves. This is equally true in criminal defense and in the representation of clients in the entertainment business. We as lawyers are both attorneys and counselors at law. I cherish the opportunity I have to not only represent my clients in court, but also the opportunity to counsel them, to help them navigate through the various legal issues and minefields."
