I hired Mr. Donny Knepper to represent me in a very serious DUI case. This was my first time being in legal trouble of any kind, so I didn’t know much about the process. After my arrest, I received dozens of offers to be represented by various lawyers in and around Montgomery County, Maryland. I contacted and consulted with many, but I knew from the first conversation that Mr. Knepper was the attorney for my case. He was kind and reassuring from the very first conversation we had on the phone, which he answered himself after normal business hours. He offered a very prompt, thorough initial consultation. After learning the complicated nature of the case, he offered me a very fair flat fee with a structured payment schedule. As a father of four, this was a godsend. Before my initial consultation ended, he had zeroed in on a solid, multi-pronged defense strategy. This gave me great peace of mind as I went on about my busy life until my court date.
On the day I appeared in court, Mr. Knepper arrived and spoke with the district attorney who offered a deal that was not satisfactory. He laid out my options in plain terms, and advised me that we should take the case to trial, because he had a well-researched, viable argument. He had done his due diligence and had various legal cases to cite in front of the judge. Although I was very scared and nervous, his composed demeanor and confidence in his position reassured me. I took his advice and we went to trial.
He defended me like a lion during the trial. All of the police involved in my arrest were there to testify against me. He aggressively objected to any unfair testimony and shut down much of the district attorneys arguments. He stuck to his initial position, the one he zeroed in on back at our first consultation. He got the officer who first encountered me to admit he made a mistake and set them on their heels from that point forward. Almost none of the evidence against me after that really had much bearing. In the closing arguments he made a motion to have the charges dropped, and the judge agreed with him. I was acquitted of all seven serious criminal charges, as well as one civil charge. Their entire case was complete gone.
This man saved my life, my marriage, and my career. The outcome he achieved has saved me years of legal and financial woe. I would tell anyone looking for competent legal representation to go with Mr. Donald Knepper.

My father got a citation that could involve jail time, fines and many points. I was very worried and had no experience with this type of matter. I found Mr. Knepper after a long search and was drawn by the positive reviews. We had a very professional consultation and I was reassured immediately that Mr. Knepper would be able to take care of my father. Mr. Knepper answered all of my calls himself and immediately and was on top of the details. Although the case could not be dismissed Mr. Knepper guided us through the trial and the impact minimal, a small fine. I would completely recommend Mr. Knepper and I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

I couldn't wait to get home and give this review. This man is a great lawyer by all mean. I hired him for a DWI case and he came through for me. He's very reassuring and confident. The case wasn't dropped but he did all he could and got me the best option possible. It was my fist time dealing with an issue like this and he made me feel comfortable and even when I was losing faith and freaking out he calmed me. I would definitely recommend him and his team to anyone that needs a lawyer.

We had a very complicated custody and child support case and needed an attorney who knew the law, could be a helpful resource, and serve as a forceful advocate when needed. Donny is very knowledgeable about current case law and was on top of our case every step of the way. He is the type of attorney that you want on your side and fighting for your interests. We appreciated the way he did not bill us for unnecessary work and treated us fairly throughout the process. He is dependable, a great communicator, and a true people person. We feel fortunate to have had his counsel throughout what was a very stressful ordeal for our family.
We have and will continue to refer Donny to anyone that is need of a trustworthy, effective, talented, and knowledgeable attorney.

I found Donny on a web search. For my case of the traffic ticket, I believe I needed an Attorney who would have proven-track to defend it right so we can get the case reduced/dismissed. He offered to talk to my neighbors, get some photos of the vehicle, and discuss different scenarios in person. Later, we decided on one scenario, which worked great. At the end of the day two tickets were dismissed, and one was reduced. I appreciated that we went to Trial rather than only him talking on my behalf. That was a winner. I recommend him for anything in Montgomery County! Talk to him, he answers the phone more than anyone! Don't go to someone else. He is licensed in DC, too.

I had a traffic case that I could have gone to jail for. My girlfriend referred me to Donny Knepper. She said that he would know what to do. I talked to Donny on the phone and immediately felt so much better. He was honest with me and gave me options for the case. I took his advice and I am glad that I did. He was able to get my case dropped without even having to go to court.
Donny did what he said he was going to do and he stayed in touch with me the whole time. He is the lawyer that you want.

I would recommend Donny to anybody in need of a lawyer.
I hired him to handle what would have been my second DUI. I told him that I was being wrongly accused. From the very beginning of the case Donny did everything he could to make sure that I was found not-guilty.
He visited the scene of my arrest. He took pictures of the area and got them blown up in HD quality color photos. I knew that a lot of people had witnessed my arrest and Donny talked to every one of them. I could tell that winning was important to him.
I've had to hire a lawyer before. I know how it is. You sort of wonder whether you are giving your money away. You wonder if the lawyer will really do anything for you. Let me tell you, Donny works.
There was a legal issue that popped up in my case and Donny was all over it. He wrote this whole long motion. Even when we lost in District Court, he just took it to Circuit Court and kept at it. It was like no matter what happened he would find a way to win.
I cannot tell you how happy I was the day that Donny called me to tell me that the prosecutor had finally had enough and was dismissing my case.
Justice prevailed, but I know that it would not have happened if I did not have Donny Knepper on my side.
If you are looking for a lawyer, do yourself a favor and call him.

I hired Donald Knepper for my criminal defense case as my legeal representation in Maryland's district court after having been wrongly and falsely arrested by the Gaithersburg police department by the order of a Gaithersburg Sherriff who arrested me for "violating a no contact order/protective order." My wife at the time decided to show up to my apartment, which was listed on the order as my official court dictacted residence, to which she was not allowed to return to under the order of a judge as she had decided to take residence with a new partner elsewhere. A week prior she had been escorted by a police officer to my apartment to collect her remaining belongings, and with knowledge that she was not allowed there, returned to the apartment while I was there despite the judge's order. I called the police for protection from her, because she has been abusive and manipulative towards me and others in the past, and a Gaithersburg Sherriff arrested me for being at my own apartment which was my court appointed and recognized residence despite knowing that my wife of the time was not legally allowed to be there. After being released on bail with conditions to stay in the area and check in every week, I immediately started doing research in finding the best criminal defense lawyer I could find and afford. Donald Knepper is the most honest, sincere, and hard working lawyer I've ever met, and I think I will ever meet. He was completely transparent with me with all the information regarding my case and what the expected result was to be, and was very reassuring and hardworking. If I ever had a question he would always go out of his way to make sure it was answered fully and in detail, and if he was not available, his wonderful staff would take care of it immediately. Every step of the way Donald Knepper made sure things were done right, and that there were no stones left unturned. In the end, Donald Knepper and his legal team got my case dismissed before it went to trial, and had three charges, two "violate exparte/protection order" and one" theft less than $1000 value" (Nothing was stolen from my past wife, she claimed I had her belongings, which were immediately returned to her as I was clearing the apartment out so that I could move away) charges brought to the verdict "nolle prosequi." Donald Knepper worked quickly and diligently, did not sugar coat anything, and was realistic about outcomes, timelines, the process, and best of all was upfront about fees and made everything simple and easy to handle. The day of the trial, Donny Knepper, my witness, and I showed up to court, and after talking with the prosecutor, Donald Knepper had the false charges dropped, to which the prosecutor told my past wife that this was an abuse of the system, and that she could face charges of criminal harassment. After the case, Mr. Knepper served my past wife with an order to cease her actions against me or to face criminal harassment and other charges. Mr. Donald Knepper is an expert at handling difficult situations, and is a man that genuinely loves his job, and will give it his all. He went head to head against a published feminist writer (my past wife) in court to defend me from false charges and won before the case even made it to trial. If you are unsure of lawyers or worried that a lawyer isn't going to have your best interests at heart then stop looking elsewhere and hire Donny Knepper and his firm, they had my back in my time of need, and did not let me down at all, even once, and he kept my best interests as his priority. I would not hesitate to hire him again if the need were to ever arise, as he has handled this case better than I've seen any other lawyer conduct themselves.
