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.

After receiving a DUI, I was very nervous and uninformed about the process. Mr. Akulian did a great job of setting my expectations, explaining the entire process, and was an overall solid support through a confusing process. Mr. Akulian was extremely responsive, taking less than 4-6 hours to respond to any email communication. Even after my initial court appearances, Mr. Akulian has been as helpful and responsive as he was at the onset of my case. Mr. Akulian's pricing is extremely fair and he does not push you into anything you don't need or don't want. I would recommend his services to others with alcohol related infractions.

Mr. David Akulian is a very good lawyer. I am very satisfied with the job he has done for me - if I had another case I would like to have him in my corner.
