    The lawyer you want to have

    Two weeks ago I found myself in a situation i never thought i would in my life .
    I have been arrested in DC for assaulting my husband and injured him with a broken glass .We were in Dc for the weekend and as soon as the accident happened i called 911 for an ambulance and the first thing that i sow was the police arresting me .. i was in shock and really scared . It was a saturday night . My husband , as soon as he got out from the hospital that morning ( which was a sunday ) hired Schawn Sulumar and early afternoon he came to the jail i was in without waisting any time and i could not ask for a better lawyer who listen patiently to me, gave me finally information about my husband and how he was doing ( they didn't even make me do a phone call so i was crazy worry ) . He treated me like a "friend " and at the same time extremely professional , knowledgeable , prepared
    He told me what i was risking ( which was a charge of assault with lethal weapon ) but i knew right away he was the right lawyer , the one who you know would fight with any possible way , any possible information in order to get you out . I'm foreign here in US on a green card so i was even more scared to have eventually problems and even being deported .

    Shawn was so reassuring and very honest and precise explaing to me all the steps we would have do
    He told me that the day after he had already a case and his partner Mike Bartfield would be in court with me , that i would not be alone . And so it was : he came to see me the day of the court hearing with the wonderful news i would have being release and my case was "no paper "
    My husband and i are very grateful to Shawn and his team and i think he could't do his job better , professionally and humanly
    I would strongly recommend him and his team

    On that day your life goes sideways, don’t walk, run to Shawn!

    Following an unfortunate incident, which I wish never to repeat again in my life, and with a lot on the line to lose, Shawn was there for me that day. Never having been in such an uncomfortable position before, and not knowing exactly what to do next, but knowing I needed to speak to a lawyer post haste, Shawn and his office were there for me with a quick reply to my call for help. I really appreciated the professional, and empathetic, initial consultation we had, which laid out my situation and the next steps in a clear and concise way, without sugar coating the reality of my position. From the best, worst, and most likely outcomes, his counsel helped set my mind at ease. His timely communication, and I knowing that I would not have to stickhandle the DC system and bureaucracy on my own over the next several months, really helped give me peace of mind. The final outcome was as expected, and I could not be happier. While his services are not free, I felt his fees more than reasonable - the ability to sleep at night… priceless!!!

    Excellent Attorney

    I reached out to Shawn after having some assault charges pressed against me for a quick consult. His friendly demeanor, openness with information and willingness to advise me made me very comfortable with him. This was a very stressful situation with possible prison time at stake. He stayed calm and painted a picture of all possible outcomes, but also what his best case scenario for me would be. He fought for me and worked with the prosecutor to figure out the best proposal. After some negotiating and work on my part, 6 months later all charges were dismissed.

    Shawn's professionalism is unrivalled. I highly recommend his services if anyone is ever in need of an attorney.

    Top notch

    After receiving a DWI in Washington DC and facing serious jail time for being a repeat offender I was fortunate enough to find Shawn. Not only did he put my mind at ease but he did everything he could to keep me from spending any extended period of time in jail . Shawn was honest and straight up from the very beginning and after almost 2 years of court dates I got a suspended sentence and and didn't miss anytime away from my newborn daughter . I have unfortunately used many lawyers and Shawn is with a doubt the best I have seen . I highly recommend him .

    I was charged with a DUI and was very nervous. I am a federal employee with a lot to lose with a DUI conviction on my record not to mention jail time. I contacted Shawn Sukumar immediately after he walked me through all the steps of the processhe even worked with me on a payment plan. End result CASE DISMISSED!!! I'm a free man and can get on with my life I am so happy to have contracted him.

    A professional and knowledgeable attorney

    When I was looking for an attorney, I met with quite a few. I found Mr. Sukumar to be not only knowledgeable and professional, but, importantly, personal as well. As a layperson, I found it very easy to get confused by the legal process, a process that is anxiety inducing. Fortunately, Shawn took great time to explain the legal process, clarify the legal jargon, and answer all of my questions with unwavering patience. I cannot stress enough how important it is to have an attorney who you have a good relationship with and with whom you can communicate readily. Shawn Sukumar provided great representation. I recommend him highly.

    Shawn is neither good, nor okay. He is Excellent... !

    I had been falsely charged for a serious felony matter which I was about to lost all what I have invested in my life... I had no idea what to do since I have never ever had any experience of how the system works. Thus, while browsing Internet I came across Shawn's profile, and the good reviews he had. I was very impressed when I read his reviews, therefore,decided to see him for my matter. I called his office, and Shawn make an immediate appointment. He analyzed the situation for me, and gave me a feeling that the situation is not what is seems like.He briefed me on how the situation will be looking like in its legal aspect, and what I would expect from my case. While talking to Shawn, the Dect. called me, and I told him the I have now a lawyer, and then Shawn took over. The moment Shawn spoke with the Dect. I understand that he is the right person to hire to fight for my right.

    Shawn was there for all my courts, and he educated me a head of the time that what would happened on the court. He was always on time, and prepared for all my courts. His skills rocks on my trial, he was able to turn everything around on my favor. He made it very simple for the juries to distinguish the facts, and lies on my case. As a result, I was found Not Guilty of all accused counts. I'm free person, and can continue my education, and having hope to my life, and my career. Shawn was an good investment, and worth every penny, and every dollar. His skills are outstandingly professional, and remarkably unique.

    He also put my on a payment plan that works for me. During the case period, which was my toughest life time ever, I was calling, texting, and emailed him every single time that I was depressed and had worries, but Shawn was always taking his time, and then responding me with a wise decision. He never rushed to give me a baseless respond.

    I'm glad to hire Shawn for my matter, I found him very aggressive, wise, knowledgeable, who would work hard to get you the very best result possible.

    I have lots of respect for Shawn, and I wish him more success and prosperity....

    Great Young Professional Lawyer

    I was charged with DUI at the age of 67. I had never been arrested. Shawn told me the case probably would be resolved in my favor without trial. Two weeks after a nightmare, the case is closed with no criminal charge.

    Earn all 5 stars

    I was facing defacing public property charges and possession of cocaine charges. With a good job on the line, I wanted to get it all done as fast as possible with the least amount of consequences. Shawn got me just that. I was done everything in just 6 months with only having to do a short amount of community service. Throughout the whole case, Shawn was very responsive to any questions or concerns that I had. Everything was done in a fast timely manor. He literally took care of everything. All I had to do was show up when I was told and complete my community service on time. I would recommend Shawn to anyone in the DC area searching for legal assistance.
