I'm Shawn Sukumar, a skilled criminal defense attorney in the District of Columbia. I focus my practice on a wide variety of misdemeanor and felony criminal cases in addition to some traffic cases.
I have focused my entire legal career on criminal defense. I followed law school with a clerkship at the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia in the trial division, where I worked on a range of cases that included sexual assault, drugs, and gun charges. Prior to taking up practice in DC in 2010, I worked at the Clark County Public Defender in Las Vegas, Nevada in the murder division. I also bring experience working for the Georgia Public Defender Standards Council in Atlanta, Georgia.
