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.

Sweta works hard. She is concern and passionate about law. If you want a friend that will return your calls and text messages ASAP, then hire Sweta. If you want to stay out of jail, hire an experience criminal attorney. Sweta has decent relationships with some prosecutors and judges. However, she's not ready as a trial attorney. Her lack of experience shows in the courtroom when arguing a serious criminal case. I believe her strongest and best won cases are DUIs.
Sweta is an extremely nice woman. With her determination, passion for law and client best interest, in another few years, she will be a strong criminal defense attorney that many will hire for representation.

I would highly recommend Bruckheim & Patel. We were referred to Sweta through a mutual friend after a contract dispute with our wedding videographer. She is very passionate about helping her clients. As soon as we gave her the contract and background information she went right to work. She knew exactly how to approach the situation and what information to gather. She is very understanding and exceptionally knowledgeable. I trusted her opinions throughout the entire process which made me feel more at ease. She was very professional and kept us well informed while handling all the day to day and communications with the other party. In the end, she was able to settle out of court with an outcome that was better than we expected. I was very impressed and will definitely come back should I need more legal services.

Ms. Patel was great. When I called she was straight to the point and convinced me to go with this law firm. She told me all the ins and outs of my case unlike other law firms I contacted. Once I met her in person she was as generous as she was on heh phone. She briefed me about what's going on with my case once I told all the details. She stayed in contact with me all the way until she told me my case would get dismissed. She is a great lawyer and would recommend her to anyone.

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!!

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.
