Dont hire a lawyer based on a website or a lawyer who pays for sponsored listings or advertisements; hire a lawyer with Proven Experience. Best Lawyers in America, Corporate Counsel, Washingtonian and SuperLawyers magazines have all ranked me, year after year, as one of the Top Criminal Defense Attorneys in the Washington, DC area. 30+ years of Criminal Defense Experience as an Attorney and Investigator in the Criminal Courts in Washington, DC and MD. Former Deputy Trial Chief and Lead Attorney for Homicide at the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia, I trained and supervised dozens of lawyers handling the most serious Criminal Cases in D.C. The Southern Center for Human Rights awarded me The Frederick Douglas Human Rights Award for my work on behalf of the Guantanamo Bay Detainees. I have tried and won hundreds of criminal cases, have taken some of the most serious criminal cases in DC history to jury verdict. I handle all types of criminal cases from Misdemeanors to Homicides, Sex Offenses and Federal Conspiracies and I understand that the most important case, to you, is yours.
