Be very afraid. He did not have my best interest. He told me to sign a plea agreement for something that I did not do. He did not fight to me. Even asked me to talk to the police about something I had no information about. Don't make the same mistake I did.

Abysmal defense attorney. Poor defense will cost you your life. Mr. Akulian is an arrogant man that cares more about himself and his designer suits than he does your case. Do not hire under any circumstances. Avoid at all costs. Hiring this attorney was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made. Hire a real defense attorney with your life and reputation on the line.

I was arrested and charged with unregistered firearm and unregistered ammunition in Washington DC. This occurred in a federal building. It was a nightmare and I thought I was doomed.
David Akulian ‘Not Guilty in DC’ was one of my three final choices for a lawyer. I ultimately went with David because in person he displayed what his bio stated. He asked many questions during the consult and looked up things as we spoke. He left the impression that he was very experienced, there was hope and that he was going to fight for me.
It was pretty scary writing the check for the retainer, not knowing how good your lawyer really is. My case went on for seven months and there were many court appearances that I had to go to. You spend a lot of time in the courtroom waiting before your case is called. During that time you can listen to various US prosecutors and other people’s lawyers. David seemed to present himself in court better than any of the other lawyers I heard.
The US prosecutors were out for blood, so my case ended up in front of a jury. It was during the actual trail that it became apparent just how effective David was. He had more tricks up his sleeve than the prosecutor. David was very good with the jury to. The jury’s verdicts were the same as the sign on David’s office door!
I would not hesitate to use David Akulian ‘Not Guilty in DC’. I felt David Akulian gave me his absolute best effort.

I have had the great pleasure to work with David on a case. David is an excellent attorney whose primary focus is serving his clients. His great strength is in a court room in front of a jury. I highly recommend David.
