I found Mr. Sukumar to be solidly competent and equally aggressive and client-focused, with a good client manner, all good traits for a criminal defense lawyer – and what a client should be looking for when looking for defense counsel, as I was. Moreover, I found him to be knowledgeable, non-judgmental and completely centered on protecting client rights – someone I would recommend without reservation or hesitation, based on my firsthand experience.
My case concerned a potential Federal criminal investigation I'd become emeshed in, which Mr. Sukumar quickly and aggressively got in front of. Those charged with a crime (or who are being investigated or may otherwise put into a tough situation) tend to believe they can talk their way out or explain a situation, even if nothing really is there, so it goes away. That’s naïve, especially facing a trained investigator who can legally say anything to the interviewee, true or false, act friendly and/or minimize potential consequences (e.g., “You have the chance to help yourself . . “) to make their case, which is their goal.
Investigators count on your not wanting to be disrespectful, or hang up or say you don't want to talk, which appears suspicious. That same investigator is required to be truthful to an attorney, so, also in my firsthand experience, you want a Shawn Sukumar or someone similarly competent and experienced to be that attorney. I’m fortunate to have gone with Mr. Sukumar. Yes, his hourly rate is high but fully justified in terms of his obvious client dedication and focus, and his aggressively acting to obtain the desired client result.
Whether the same positive result would have happened (they backed off) with other counsel is speculation. After our initial meeting, I do know I was able to relax for the first time in several days, confident I was in good legal hands. That confidence turned out to be fully justified.

Shawn glows with congeniality, exudes professionalism, and projects absolute integrity, WALKING THE WALK. On trial day we didn't even have to enter the courtroom, Shawn already had the case dismissed! Now that's results! And then we were blown further away when Shawn informed us the there would be a partial refund since he got the charges dropped? Wow!! Too many others would never have even mentioned let alone offered such a bonus/windfall. Shawn didn't make promises or excuses, he just executed. This edifying experience has imparted upon me a new faith and appreciation in the law/legal representation profession.
SO WHEN YOU NEED HELP HIRE SHAWN SUKUMAR!!

Its important to have a good legal support when needed, specially if it is the first time that you have to defend yourself. Shawn was my the trustworthy attourney who I knew I could count on. His calm demeanor in our first meeting was exactly what I needed and his knowledge on the topic and positive but realistic actitud towards the case gave me the assurance that everything will workout in my favor. The deal he negociated with the court was excellent and now I am able to go back to my normal life almost as if the episode never happened. Forever grateful !

my experience with Shawn was beyond awesome. His due diligence was impeccable, If you want a lawyer that will be there for you come hell or high water; Mr. Sukumar is the way to go, Based on my experience you cannot go wrong with Mr. sukumar. Just based on his paying attention to detail and investigation alone he made the prosecutor drop one of the charges and of course he beat the other one in court.
Mr. Sukuma go way above and beyond to acquit me of all charges, I hired a lawyer from Virginia for the same case before I hired Mr. Shawn Sukumar The difference between Mr. sukumar and the previous lawyer I hired was like night and day.
