There is no better option
Steve is a very personable lawyer who truly cares for you as a client. My family and I appreciated how he always kept us updated and informed throughout the various stages of development in our case. Steve always was quick to respond to my questions and return my calls or emails. As he was so on top of my case and always in constant communication with me, this made me feel much calmer and aware of what was going on. Another difference maker for me was how Steve understood the thought process of the prosecution. This is a really important thing to look for in a criminal lawyer as it allows you (the defense) to better prepare. If you are looking for the best criminal defense lawyer in DC/MD, there is no better option. I would highly recommend Steve and his firm to anyone instantly.

Can't imagine anyone better
Steve Kupferberg is a very astute, long-experienced, hard-working and compassionate lawyer. He is readily available by phone, knows the courts inside and out, goes the extra mile and doesn't gouge in fees. My son got in trouble in high school and Steve met with him several times and with us, formulated a plan to give my son a second chance and it worked. He navigated us through court hearings and statements, and basically every step my son needed to take to turn his life around. This family is together because of Steve's persistent and comprehensive efforts on my son's behalf. We are very grateful.

Exceptional!
Mr. Kupferberg is kind, empathetic and knew the law for this case better than anyone else in the room. He performed above my expectations and stayed ahead of all the tedious paperwork. We spoke on several occasions and he told me what to expect, how the process worked and my role during the process. He was always on point. I highly recommend Mr. Kupferberg!

Truly excellent advice and service
Mr. Kupferberg helped me with a traffic ticket. The whole process I worked with him was totally professional, trustful and transparent. Steve is not just another experienced lawyer, but he indeed knows more and better than the other experts I talked to in his field. I definitely would recommend Steve to anyone!

No one I trust more
Steve has worked tirelessly on two different occasions (and in two different jurisdictions) to ensure that self-inflicted wounds brought about by a once-rampant substance abuse problem have not resulted in convictions leaving indelible marks on my reputation and record. He knows exactly what to do, and how to explain what he will do in a way that that put my mind and the minds of my family members at ease. You will not find a more knowledgable, compassionate, or skilled criminal attorney in the Washington, DC area.

This is who you need to hire.
My Son struggles with some acute mental, physical and substance abuse issues. That TMI to explain we have hired Mr. Kupferberg three different times for charges of varying degrees of severity. I think there were about "traditional" 5 speeding/reckless driving charges in three separate instances, usually folded in with other charges. There hasn't been a point on his licence and he has always had reduced fines. As a 16 year old my son hit a parked car and drove off. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome that Mr. Kupferberg was able to negotiate. Extremely satisfied. As a 21 year old, my son was stopped and refused a breathalyzer test. There was plenty of scary outcomes that could have resulted from the multitude of charges piled on to this. We got the best that could have been hoped for (270 days with and an Interlock). It was really scary. Mr. Kupferberg really was calming and professional. My son had a court date and was in the hospital getting help. Mr. Kupferberg drove to Westminster (it was in Carroll County) and had the traffic charges he was facing dismissed! All he really had to do was write a letter putting it off. Instead, he drove up by himself, to help his client. He cares. He is super smart. He knows EVERYONE. He and his office is very communicative. I hope he doesn't retire anytime soon. I would 100% recommend him. This is a great lawyer.

criminal defense
Mr. Kupferberg is a superb counsel and advisor. He is a man of integrity. I consulted with him when he was retained by an employee of my company who was facing a felony prosecution. Steve was comprehensive in his understanding of the circumstances, the legal issues and the defense possibilities and choices. He advised his client with patience, thoroughness, and compassion. He achieved a fair and just result for which his client was both satisfied and grateful. Thank you Steve for what you did for our friend and colleague.

Covers all the bases
I had a recent experience that was potentially nightmarish for my family and I. Steve Kupferberg’s efforts on my behalf — along with the legal outcome — were a comfort to my family and I. He’s an excellent attorney! Thanks again Steve...

Best for a reason
This was the second personal injury case Steven handled for me. He was able to get me excellent compensation amount without the time consuming and headaches of a lawsuit. I was very happy with the outcome and was able to move forward and put this behind me quickly. I highly recommend Steve Kupferberg and his staff, they fight for you until you get the results you want. Wouldn't use anyone else. Highly Recommended.

Fantastic Lawyer
We were fortunate enough to have Steve represent our son in a juvenile criminal matter. We could not have asked for a better outcome for our son’s case and we give Steve all the credit for that outcome. He was a very diligent and extremely knowledgeable advocate for our son. We could not have asked for a better attorney to guide us successfully through this serious juvenile matter. In addition, Steve was very easy to work with and demonstrated obvious concern for our son and our family. We give him the strongest possible recommendation based on our amazing experience with him.

No One Better
Me. Kupferberg was referred to my family for defense of a very serious charge that would have put my son away for life. He is, without a doubt, the best defense attorney there is. From the beginning, he displayed exceptional competency, knowledge of the law and court system. He prepared us every step of the way and brilliantly slayed the prosecution and their ‘’expert’’ witnesses. I would trust Mr. Kupferberg with my life, he definitely saved my son’s. God Bless you Steve!

DUI....Not I
To say that I was "extremely pleased at the outcome" does not begin to express how I feel about the services provided by this firm. In one of the most stress-inducing episodes of my life, they were calm and steady in explaining the options and the best paths forward. They were very thorough in their collection of background information, conscientious in representing me at the various stages of the process, both in writing and in person, and provided outstanding support in guiding me through the process. The charges against me were serious, and the potential penalties were severe. Nevertheless, the actual outcome this firm produced was significantly better than I would have thought possible. I attribute that very pleasing outcome to the solid background information they collected in my case, the legal research and citations that were prepared in my defense, and the extraordinarily effective negotiating skills they employed with the State's Attorney Office. I would have been content with that negotiated settlement, but the positive relationships this firm had developed over years of practicing law locally were also very much in evidence when we went to trial. The presiding judge in my case knew Mr. Kupferberg personally and obviously held him in high professional regard. The negotiated agreement with the State's Attorney, which I felt was better than I could have hoped for, was reduced even further by the presiding judge! I attribute that directly to the esteem with which this firm is held in this jurisdiction, and I was a surprised but very happy beneficiary of that high regard! In short, I was extremely pleased at the services I was provided, and MORE than pleased at the outcome produced.

Superb Defense Attorney
Mr. Kupferberg displayed a mastery in criminal defense law while working on my case. He and his staff were extremely responsive to my questions. He was always a phone call away when I needed to talk to him. While in court I observed him as a highly respected and admired attorney within the court system. He absorbed all of the details of my case and wrote a highly effective oral argument to the judge. He stays calm and focused through high stress and will continue to fight for the ideal outcome. When the time arrived, he promptly filed paperwork for an expungement. He is a consummate professional. My family highly appreciates him for improving my life.

One of the best
Steve is an exceptional lawyer who not only has a strong knowledge of the law, but also strong and precise instincts regarding cases he picks up. Steve is one of the best people I have ever come across, his honesty and knowledge far surpass anyone I know. I don't think I could trust anyone more than I trust Steve Kupferberg.

I had eight traffic tickets in Montgomery County
Hire Steven Kupferberg, that is all there is to it. An officer gave me eight tickets for, basically, the same three offenses. My license would have been suspended due to the points and the fines were over $1000. I would have been in high risk insurance for three years. Through Mr. Kupferberg’s negotiation skills, I was found guilty of one ticket that had no points. I paid court costs of $60. A minor miracle, in my books. Mr. Kupferberg explained that relationships are an essential part of the legal system and, based on my observations in court, he knows everyone. This is the lawyer you want on your side.

Highly Dissapointed
I hired Steve for my first criminal case I ever caught. To put it simply, i got the vibe my case did not matter to him. He did not communicate with me consistently regarding the status of my case, my options. I was offered a plea deal with home detention for 2 years. I asked him his opinion and he said that is my choice. I know, but I am no legal which is why I askedchis opinion. I decided to decline the deal and took it to trial recieving a better plea deal than the earlier one offered. He forgot small things about my case constantly. I would not recommend betting your freedom on this man. Almost couldve done the job myself.
