I was lucky to have Ms. Patel to represent me. She was competent and also knew all the tricks that could help, realizing that sometimes there is a bit of luck involved. She knew the different players in the system and how to use it to our best advantage.

My First dealings with Sweta she waS still associated with her former Firm Price Bennowitz . However as my case preceded she broke away with her mentor to start their own firm but informed me that she was taking a few clients and finishing up their cases I being one of the lucky ones . I was charged by a secret service idiot for weapons charge due to the fact that I had gardening tools in my SUV and had just cut down a tree with fresh cut wood saw blades etc. upon further review of my prior record which most felony infractions were 20 years prior - college stupidity and wildness I'm now 51-year-old executive not only does Miss Patel dress for success she exudes a personal confidence especially within the court room that I found comforting and of course daily dealings with the government and prosecution she has forged relationships with people in those offices and at whatever juncture my case took there was always an open air of compromise and an established level of goodwill ,understanding and agreement things that I have found lacking in prior attorneys especially with bad attitudes she's not only pleasant but extremely knowledgeable . As with some other attorneys she does not speak down to her clients she gives you an informative and comprehensive assessment of the situation at every level in terms and the language that you can understand and relate to something many attorneys fail to do , I have a graduate degree and of been spoken down to buy many attorneys I find it rude and ignorant miss Patel will put you at ease with your situation she has the expertise she has the connections she has been working in the district court house long enough to realize the inner workings and what judges you want to be in front of and all the other minutia and small details that add up in every case. She's extremely thorough and well spoken and once we had formulated a plan of action and a strategy she stayed to it and three diligence I arrived at a settlement with government counsel that we could all live with . I have fired my prior Attorney of 20 years plus partially because of a newly developed bad attitude but he has become set in his ways and believe that only his strategy is of any consequence . That's not how I do business I surround myself with people who are the most knowledgeable open-minded and not afraid of me that's how I felt with Miss Patel more of an equal that a subordinate she knows the law she knows the people she knows the court if you're going to spend your hard earned money on legal counsel and representation for what ever infraction it is that you were being charged with you owe it to yourself to contact sweat it Patel for an initial consultation and have no fear if she does not feel comfortable with the area of the legal expertise that you require she will tell you so and or bring in the specialist I have had many dealings downtown at Indiana Avenue O over the past 25 years I too am aware of certain judges and certain prosecutors just stay away from she doesn't wonderful job of calendar manipulation you could not ask for a nicer person to deal with every telephone call answered within an acceptable amount of time no question too stupid or small for her to deal with and the most important thing of all she instilled the level of confidence not only through her own self promotion but the eloquent manner and her description of possibilities and procedures and when you combine all those factors you come up with a very astute sharp and well respected legal counsel and the government knows It too ,&
that's the most important Aspect for you the defendant. I did not believe the government had enough evidence to prosecute me for the original charges nor did she sway we took it all the way to the end and at the last moment They capitulated to our agreement I went in and sign some papers & paid a couple finds and of story if she has time in on her calendar for you you would be wise to make an appointment !!NOW

Sweta was my lawyer for a DUI charge I was accused of. Although I was found guilty, I know that those were due to my actions alone, and she helped me to reach a deal with the prosecutor that avoided jail time I was facing. She did a great job of answering my questions (there were a ton I had), and making herself available to talk. Sometimes I had trouble reaching her to discuss my case, but I know that was due primarily to both of our busy schedules. She did a great job representing me and walking me through everything, as this was my first time having to deal with legal issues. I would recommend her for representation and wish her the best.

I highly recommend attorney Sweta Patel for any criminal case. Ms. Patel is not only smart but very knowledgeable, one of the things I admire the most from her is that she does her homework, during the curse of my case (a Felony Fraud) she closely supervised a detailed investigation to prepare my defense, I had never been involved with the criminal justice system before and the charges came unexpectedly out of nowhere. I was lost and in despair, the more she learned about my situation, the background of the case and the charges, the more she took control and gave me confidence. I believe Ms. Patel loves challenges and she got one hell of paperwork and technicalities to learn and deal during my case. She kept me informed every step of the way and prepared me objectively to every possible outcome. I believe her strategic thinking and preparedness was critical to win over what could have possible been a devastating outcome due to the ill nature of the accusations. Having her as an attorney made a real difference and was the only great of a terrible personal experience, I am so thrilled she was able to work on my case and that it ended on a positive result, considering it was a felony fraud charge that she cleverly got dismissed.

Sweta Patel was a great advocate for me through a very stressful experience. Ms. Patel was very helpful, reassuring, and calming. She made sure that I was kept informed throughout the process and explained everything so that I, who has little to no knowledge of the legal system, could understand what was happening. If you need an attorney, I would highly recommend Ms. Patel. She is someone that you would want to have on your side if you find yourself in a position to need an attorney.

I was not familiar with DC law and found myself facing a criminal charge for an incident. This lawyer explained the process to me and agreed to represent me. She kept me informed, was present at all my court appearances and articulated my case to the prosecution and worked to reach an agreement that was considered fair and reasonable based on the evidence. Even if my case was lost, I would highly recommend her to anyone needing legal representation because of her professionalism and knowledge.

Sweta Patel started as the #2 on my DUI case, but represented me very professionally from the start. She is clear and concise and very aware of all possible options. When the #1 attorney could not attend my final case, she took over and did a fantastic job. I would recommend her unconditionally.

If you are looking for a criminal defense attorney, especially for DUI, then look no further! Sweta Is THE BEST! I was charged with DUI. I had never been involved with the criminal justice system before. I found Sweta on the internet and I really lucked out! She has been responsive, communicating with me every step of the way. She knows the law inside and out. One of her best qualities is that she treated me like a person and not a client. She went to great lengths to schedule court appearances around my schedule and my work. She even arranged it so that I did not have to appear on certain court dates even though she had to go. She treats you with compassion and respect. In addition to all this, she is a gifted attorney who knows her craft inside and out. She stood beside me every step of the way and was able to explain the law and procedures so that I completely understood. Remember her name because she is going places! Like I said, If you need an attorney especially for DUI, and you are considering Sweta, then don't consider anyone else. You can't find a better attorney than her. She is simply THE BEST!
