With little hope of a positive outcome, I fortunately was recommended to Sweta through her partner Mike Brukheim. Although I was seeking to work with Mike, a top DUI lawyer in the DMV area, he trusted my case with his very talented partner. After one hour of conversation at 9pm in the evening, I was sure of her professionalism, and wanted to hire her on the spot, but she told me to sleep on it. So I did, and both me and my wife were 110% confident in our decision. I can guarantee personally, which is the main reason why I went with her, that NO STONE WILL BE LEFT UNTURNED. I could rest assured that she would exhaust all options. As a result, my case had the best possible outcome, and I cannot thank Sweta enough for everything she did. Feel free to ask Sweta for my personal information as a reference if needed. I am more than happy to recommend her services.

To everyone who is reading this . . . if you want a good lawyer who knows what they are doing; then their is no need to go anywhere else!! From day one when I started looking for a lawyer to represent me at the DC Superior Court for my recent DUI charges, Ms. Patel had me at ease.
She was one of the first lawyers I called when doing my consultations to figure out how much representation would cost and I was impressed and pleased with her knowledge and ability to put me at ease and she was not even my lawyer. She even answered a few other emails I had and had no reservation to answer my questions.
My day for arraignment finally arrived and opted for a "court-appointed" lawyer and the Judge selected Ms. Patel to represent me; but the CJAG Office deemed that I did not qualify for a "court-appointed" lawyer.
Finally after figuring out what I needed to do, I let Ms. Patel know that I wanted her to be my lawyer. It was almost as though from day one our crossing paths was destiny!!
Ms. Patel, I cannot thank you enough for your representation!! Ms. Patel worked out a wonderful plea agreement that was just what I was hoping she would be able to do; even when things got a bit more difficult at the 11th hour.
If you need a great lawyer, a lawyer who can put you at ease, a lawyer who can get the job done . . . then you need not go anywhere else!!
Thank you Ms. Patel!!

Sweta is an excellent lawyer offering honest aND aggressive representation. She was confident that she would resolve my matter with no conviction or negative consequences and that is exactly what she did.
Thank you Sweta

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.

Ms, Patel was knowledgeable in my case and gave me different in how I could handle my case. She serves to help your cause and truly shows that she cares. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney, two thumbs up
