RightDefense.org is a conservative criminal justice project of the Coolidge Reagan Foundation (est. 2014).

RightDefense.org was launched in 2022 to fill the void of non-profit experienced criminal defense representation services for conservatives thrust into the criminal justice system for exercising their rights or engaging in constitutionally-protected activities. RightDefense.org will fund the legal fees of conservative lawyers defending conservative individuals charged with criminal offenses in Virginia and in Washington DC.

The RightDefense.org criminal justice initiative is led by renowned attorney Marina Medvin, an experienced trial lawyer who has represented defendants in the full spectrum of state and federal criminal prosecutions. Ms. Medvin is also known as a conservative columnist and a patriot advocate who has represented various January 6 protesters. Ms. Medvin will be personally defending some of the RightDefense.org cases.

The types of cases we will be considering for pro bono representation: the criminalization of free speech, non-violent criminal charges following protests, and the prosecution of self-defense. 

Donations will be managed by the Coolidge Reagan Foundation. Other than credit card processing fees, 100% of the funds raised go to attorneys to represent conservatives. Please donate using the link below.

New criminal case inquiries will be managed by MEDVIN LAW PLC. Conservative defendants charged with criminal offenses in Virginia or Washington DC can submit their case for consideration via email. Write “RightDefense.org” in the subject line and include your charging documents as PDF attachments when submitting your case for consideration. RightDefense.org resources are limited by donations and attorney availability. We cannot promise a response to all inquiries, but we will try. Do not include confidential statements in email correspondences.
