About Us

When you face serious criminal charges, you want a lawyer who fully understands the law, who can anticipate the moves the state will make, and take measures to protect your rights, your freedom and your future.

At the law office of Matt Bodman, P.A, we have the experience and knowledge you need. Before going into private practice, attorney Bodman spent five years as a prosecutor, serving as assistant solicitor to Richland County. In that capacity, he gained valuable insight into the ways the state evaluates and prepares criminal cases. He also appeared in court on a regular basis, building a strong understanding of trial practice and procedure. When you hire us to defend you on a criminal charge, we will always prepare your case as if it will go to trial, so that we fully investigate the facts and circumstances, and build the most effective arguments in your defense.

We offer a free initial consultation. To schedule an appointment, contact our office online or call our Columbia, South Carolina, office at 803-806-8605 (toll free at 866-806-8608).
