Matthew C. Boyd, Esq.

Matthew Boyd is Of Counsel at Link Law, LLC.

Matthew is an experienced and passionate criminal defense attorney who enjoys fighting for his clients, competing with prosecutors during pretrial hearings and trials, and winning.

Matthew has practiced criminal law since he graduated from Villanova University School of Law in 2014.  He has handled thousands of criminal cases and can offer premium representation to people charged with criminal offenses at any stage of their case:

Pretrial: Matthew has represented clients at thousands of pretrial hearings, including preliminary hearings, motions to suppress, and bail and detainer hearings.  Matthew has had countless cases dismissed or discharged at pretrial hearings, and he is regularly able to get his clients out of custody prior to trial by having their bail lowered or their detainers lifted.

Trial: Matthew has litigated over 100 trials with successful results.  Matthew has a winning trial record and has secured “not guilty” verdicts for his clients for virtually every type of major criminal offense, including: Attempted Murder, Robbery, Possession of Narcotics with intent to Distribute, Firearms Offenses, Burglary, Rape, Kidnapping, DUI, Aggravated Assault, Theft, Receiving Stolen Property, and many others.

Some examples of Matthew’s notable recent jury trial results include:

Commonwealth v. S.P.:  

  • Matthew’s client S.P. was charged with Narcotics Distribution and Firearms Offenses, after S.P. was arrested holding the keys to a car that contained a large quantity of narcotics and an illegal firearm, and S.P.’s DNA was present on the firearm and the narcotics.
  • The jury found S.P. NOT GUILTY of ALL CHARGES after Matthew effectively explained to the jury that the S.P.’s DNA was present on the drugs and gun because the police inadvertently contaminated the firearm and narcotics with S.P.’s DNA when they neglected to wear gloves during the search and failed to follow other important protocol.


Commonwealth v. D.H.:

  • Matthew’s client D.H. was charged with Attempted Murder, Aggravated Assault, and related offenses based on allegations that he participated in a narcotics related home invasion and shot one of the complaining witnesses 7 times.  At trial, three eyewitnesses testified that they personally observed D.H. committing the crimes.
  • The jury found D.H. NOT GUILTY of ALL CHARGES after Matthew successfully discredited the Commonwealth’s eyewitnesses by exposing inconsistencies in their testimony and by showing motive for the eyewitnesses to falsely identify D.H. as the perpetrator.

Many other attorneys think that being a lawyer is just a way to earn a paycheck.  They aren’t passionate about their jobs.  They don’t return their clients’ calls.  They are either too nervous or too busy to go to trial.

Matthew is different. He decided that he wanted to be a trial attorney when he was in fifth grade. He loves fighting for his clients. He is dedicated to standing up to a criminal justice establishment that too often over-prosecutes and dehumanizes those it was made to serve.  He cares about his clients and prioritizes communication.

If you or a loved one has been charged with a criminal offense, don’t call an attorney who thinks of you as simply another paycheck.  Call the attorneys at Link Law, LLC., and get the passionate and zealous representation that you deserve.
