I really want to express my gratitude for what Sweta has done for my family. Her level of professionalism and attentiveness is second only to her knowledge and compassion for her clients. From the moment I spoke to her I knew I had made the right decision by choosing her to represent a member of my family. She was direct and honest with me from the start, which gave me the assurance that I needed. I would recommend her to anyone! Very,very happy with the outcome, thank you Sweta!

I was referred to Bruckheim & Patel by a friend and I was impressed. Ms. Patel was honest and answered all of my questions thoroughly. I never had an issue with communication or reassurance. My case was dismissed and I can now move on with my life. Overall, I had a quality experience and highly recommend Sweta Patel.

Ms. Patel was hired by my family after meeting with numerous attorneys regarding my criminal defense matter. I wanted to go to trial because I was innocent. Ms. Patel made sure every matter was investigated, no corner left unturned and even got me an offer that would have resulted in nothing on my record. I wanted to stick by my principal. At trial, she was excellent and confident- well prepared, articulate to the court--- and it was clear the prosecutors in the court room respected her work ethics as well as every person in the court room.
We received a not guilty verdict, even though Ms. Patel was clear it could go either way and informed me of all my decisions on giving up a diversion offer. Luckily, the verdict was in my favor and I can not thank Ms. Patel enough. Win or lose, I knew Ms. Patel was going to do everything to make sure I had the best defense. She is one of the best criminal defense attorneys in the area. Often when in court with Ms. Patel, many attorneys would come up to her and ask for her advice on their own cases. That made me even more confident on Ms. Patel's reputation in the community. After meeting with numerous attorneys, many with more years of experience, I knew Ms. Patel was the one and I'm so glad I went with my gut instinct and hired her and her firm. Don't look any further, Ms. Patel is the best you are going to get in DC.
Christina Raskin, DUI and DWI Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I worked with Attorney Patel in a co-defendant case involving immigration consequences, if convicted. From the get go, it appeared that trial was our only option. Attorney Patel presented with the mastery, confidence and know how of a lawyer far beyond her years. These traits, no doubt, contributed largely to a resolution of the matters with a dismissal. On a personal note, she was a pleasure to work with. I recommend this lawyer.
Shannon Clancy, Divorce and separation Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
Ms. Patel and I worked together on numerous cases. She is a superb advocate for her clients and truly goes over and beyond to insure that every angle is looked at. I would highly recommend her for any of your criminal defense needs.
