Highly recommend the Zuckerberg Law Center
Truly outstanding representation of case in court with consultation with medical and forensic medical experts. No questions left unanswered or investigated. Caring and exceptional in explaining the process of filings in court. Always answered calls promptly.

Great Attorney
Would absolutely recommend Attorney Zukerberg. I was charged with possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, and to make things more complicated I was a student and the incident happened on campus so there was a university side of things as well as a legal side of things. Mr. Zukerberg was a tremendous help with both issues I was dealing with. At first dealing with the legal proceedings was quite nerve racking; the prosecution was difficult to deal with and were not really looking to work with us. My case lasted 6 months with 5 total court dates and the entire time Mr. Zukerberg kept advocating for me and pushed the prosecution through many different offers. Eventually he got them to offer a plea deal in which they lessened the charge to possession of marijuana. I pleaded and he then successfully argued for me to sentenced under the Youth Act so after 6 months the convictions won't be on my record. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome after all was said and done. If I ever got into trouble again in DC I would use Mr. Zukerberg again and if I ever have a friend who ran into legal trouble I'd give them his number.

I retained Paul to represent me on a marijuana possession charge, which unfortunately happened to occur on federal property--making the charges somewhat more serious as a result. Paul took the time to explain my options and make recommendations as to the best course of action in his opinion. I felt as though he wanted to make sure I fully understood the possible options and appreciated his patience and ability to describe the various scenarios that could play out. Throughout the process, I felt that Paul was very accessible and always returned my call or e-mail same-day. Paul was also able to negotiate several special conditions to the terms of my eventual probation. I would definitely recommend Paul as an experienced attorney in this area and would retain him again should the need arise (though I hope it doesn't).
