I don't even know where to begin! Shawn is AWESOME! If I could give more than 5 stars I would. I was on a probation violation for a year. With Shawn's amazing knowledge, professionalism, and patients I kept getting a continuous until I was in compliance and it worked in my favor. I have been dismissed of all 6 of my violations. The best defense attorney in the Washington, DC area! Confident, persistent, responsive, and the list goes on. If I'm ever in any trouble I know exactly who to call and who to recommend!

Mr. Shawn Sukumar was the biggest help in my case. He fought all the way through for me. Got me the best deal I could have possibly gotten. 5 stars !

Mr. Sukumar was there every step of the way with my husband and I. Very responsive, honest, empathetic and understanding. Though we had to meet thru not so good circumstances, I would have had things addressed no other way. I pray I never need your services but I will keep coming back if need be.... lol Thank you for all you and your office has done for us???? The Hunter Family

Shawn Sukumar has got to be one of the best defense attorneys in the area. He possesses all of the characteristics for an ideal defense attorney. He listened to my case and understood both as a person and from a professional legal point of view. Shawn is extremely competent, focused, thorough in explaining the case, and listens to what you have to say as a client. My case took over a year but Shawn was always available to answer the many questions I had and gave me very accurate responses. He's was also able to manage my expectation very well as the case progressed and more information came to light. In addition, he generally has an optimistic outlook and would give some much needed moral boosters along the way. I haven't had the need to retain a lot of defense attorneys; however, from my experience I would consider Shawn one of the best in the region for the reasons listed above. He really was there when I was at one of the darkest moments in my life. I'm very grateful that I was able to get in touch with Shawn for my case. I hope that anyone that is in a similar set of circumstances had the luck to retain him as well. Thanks Shawn!

Thank you for your professionalism and attention to details.

My experience with this firm was exceptional. My attorney Kelsey Penna was phenomenal. She came well equipped and ready to help me win my Civil Protection Order. Kelsey was professional, relentless, and made light work of the matter. I’m grateful to have had worked with such a skilled attorney, definitely would recommend to anyone facing similar issues in D.C.

Extremely knowledgeable and well known lawyer, highly recommend. Mr. Bruckheim was the best decision I made. He simplified the process for me and gave me straight answers. He was able to get my DUI dropped to a reckless driving!! Thank you so much Mr. Bruckheim :)

My experience with this firm was excellent they were very reliable, and they made sure that I was informed with everything that was going on with my case, they also got my case dismissed...

Lawyer Kelsey Penna was very easy to deal with and resolved any issues which resulted in a victory where I can continue to drive in Washington DC. Big thanks to her and the others at the law firm, Greg P.

I’m extremely happy and satisfied with attorney Sweta Patel. Other attorneys I consulted told me that a DPA deal in my DUI case, was going to be almost impossible because it is very difficult to get a DPA with an accident case in DC. Patel, however, was highly professional and knowledgeable in her field and was able to secure a DPA without any ramifications to my immigration issues. My case was dismissed without any conviction on my record or even a plea deal. I’m glad I decided to work with Sweta Patel and would definitely recommend for criminal cases.

Joe and his team are professional, knowledgeable, and willing to do what's needed to get results and resolve my issues that I came to them for help with. We were in constant communication, I knew each step that was being taken and ended up resolving my issue in a timely manner. I would 100% recommend using him and his team for any future issues and will be sending anyone I know that needs help his way. Very happy with the results and glad I found Joe.

What an amazing team... If every attorney had Joe's integrity, all the other people practicing law would have a much more favorable public image.

Attorney Mutimer was super helpful and knowledgeable about my case. He was able to ease my anxiety surrounding the severity of my case which was criminal especially amidst COVID-19. Everyone at Scrofano Law was super helpful and always available when I reached out for assistance. During the pandemic Attorney Mutimer made sure to stay plugged in and touched base with me periodically. I could not have asked for a better outcome and $ well spent. He came by a recommendation from a friend and I would definitely recommend him to my friends/family.

Personable until he had my money then became unavailable. Factory-style practice. Unprofessional.

During one of the most traumatic experiences of my life, Joe and his team were there for me every step of the way. My case involved complex issues and Joe and team understood what was at stake for me. They took care of me and took care of my case like I was one of their family members. I can't thank them enough for helping me navigate a sometimes unfair and unjust justice system and for helping me achieve a happy ending to an unhappy chapter.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value While I met Ada in very unfortunate circumstances, I’m very glad I did. From the initial phone call, I knew I wanted her to be my lawyer. Not only did she respond to my emails at 11 pm, she called me and answered my questions/concerns late that night. She truly cares about her clients. She is humble, kind, and compassionate. She got what I ultimately hired her to do, a civil protection order. She continued to check on me even after the case is over. I will never forget her kind words and encouragement! Would recommend to everyone I know.Thank you very much!

My experience with the Rollins and Chan Law Firm was incredibly efficient. I found the firm through a quick Google search and within hours of the initial inquiry, I spoke with Ada who took care to explain laws and procedures in a way that was accessible and relevant. Both attorneys were professional and personable. They were responsive to all of my inquiries, usually replying within hours, and they took care to address each of my specific concerns. They utilized a secure online portal that allowed me to sign, view, and download important documents so working remotely was not an issue. They were upfront about fees and, more generally, clearly promote a culture of transparency with clients. And the fact that they are attorneys of color was just icing on the cake. I was wholly satisfied with their service and highly recommend them without reservation.

I worked with Rollins and Chan attorneys for my criminal case and this law firm has helped me out in my case meticulously. I’m very satisfied with their service and recommend this law firm 100% undoubtedly.

My experience with Rollins and Chan was very rewarding and much appreciated. Attentiveness and extremely professional is the first trait I noticed from the very moment our conversation began. I will recommend their service to everyone.

Case dismissed ! By far the best criminal attorney in MD and DC, if not the USA. I’ve had to use her on a couple of occasions. ALL were dismissed. Her passion for taking care of her clients is paramount and reigns through in her representation in the court room! She even returns texts and phone calls on weekends and evenings. A truly caring lawyer. I’d give her 100 stars if I could.

Sean Farrelly is an outstanding attorney. In my initial phone consultation with him he was EXTREMELY thorough and patient. I went with my intuition and retained him as my lawyer. I could not have been more pleased with his services. He went above and beyond any expectations. In addition to his vast knowledge of law, he is energetic and passionate about his work. He possesses a warm personality that made me feel comfortable every step of the way. I could not have asked for a better outcome for my case, or a better experience in a less that ideal situation. I highly recommend his services!

Sean is a great lawyer. Very professional, knowledgeable, honest & straightforward. He gives you the facts good or bad & the options on how he can handle the case in your best interest. He has always responded to my emails & phone calls immediately regardless of what time of day it was. I have dealt with many lawyers over the years & as far as I'm concerned Sean is one of the best. After my case was finished I was so happy I purchased a $100 gift card to a fine restaurant in DC for him & his wife. I have never done that for any attorney before. I think it speaks for itself. Highly recommend.

Farrelly PC provides excellent service and integrity to his clients. Doing business with Mr. Farrelly is exceptionally trouble-free, and I felt that I was taken care of at all times. Not only does Mr. Farrelly demonstrate resourcefulness, but he makes himself available to his clients and shows the dedication that one seeks in an ideal business relationship. He met and surpassed my expectations. I highly recommend Farrelly PC to others based on my positive experience and hope that others will choose to work with him for their needs as well.

Sean is an extremely dedicated and professional lawyer. He has his clients' best interests in mind, and went out of his way to ensure that the process went smoothly for me. He was willing to answer questions even before I hired him for his services, and genuinely cared about making the processes as easy as possible for me. He is well organized and kept me updated throughout the process.

Sean is a great attorney. He represented me in two separate cases and both had successful outcomes. Compared to the other attorneys I have met, Sean is more engaged, focused, and skilled. He knows the DC legal system and can help you navigate through the obstacles of the system to a successful verdict.

Any kind of legal trouble is a headache and the uncertainty can really be stressful but the unrivaled professionalism and responsiveness was amazing. From day 1 my questions were answered, I was represented well and Mr. Wellington fought through hell and high water for me. Definitely the guy to go to!!

I did not use him as I have no points and the ticket is a very low amount, however he was on another call, took my number and within minutes, he called me back and gave me good advice on how to deal with a very unfair ticket.

I was arrested and charged with a DUI that I thought was a slum dunk for the prosecutor. I googled DUI lawyers and the reviews for Wellington were high. I therefore decided to go with him. He advised me what to do immediately and I followed through. He stood by me and assured me that all will be fine. The result after 4 months and a couple of court appearances, case dismissed. Best value for money of you asked me. If you find yourself in a pickle, call Wellington. You will not regret it one bit.

I have known Attorney K. Lawson Wellington for twenty (20) plus years. He is a highly skilled DUI lawyer! I have consulted and worked with him on countless DUI cases over those years. I now routinely refer my serious DUI matters to him and clients report being extremely pleased with the outcomes. I recommend him highly!

You’re right here! I’m keeping you on retainer. Attorney Wellington was amazing in his handling my case, very thorough and very concerned about my well being.. Very well respected in the court room with States Attorneys and The Judges, which really goes a long way.... He’s the man......Thanks again Attorney Wellington..

    I was led to Mr. Benowitz through a referral and was able to discuss my situation with him almost immediately. Mr. Benowitz was professional, understood my needs, and provided expert consultation before agreeing to represent me. I was kept up to date throughout the legal progress and was able to get resolution without ever stepping into court. I would highly recommend Mr. Benowitz and will continue to utilize his services.

Patrice is one of the smartest and brightest lawyers in the DC area. She is a top-notch professional, an advocate for the voiceless, and a tried and true community activist. She exemplifies the ideals of servant-leadership and employs best practices in the field of law. Patrice would be an asset to any organization, but thankfully has her own practice. This alone demonstrates the dedication, competence, and drive she possesses. I appreciate knowing someone who is passionate about the legal field and humanitarian issues as Patrice.

Ms. Patrice Sulton of Sulton Law Offices is an astounding Lawyer. I was facing a charge of simple assault from an incident on Independence Day and because of the amount evidence the State had including witnesses and photographs a DSA was not offered to me. I also knew any plea offer I would most likely involve jail time and that would end my career and change my life forever. Ms. Sulton however is very proficient in the courtroom and challenged all evidence, the manner in which it was presented and discrepancies in the statements of the witnesses. Ms. Sulton works just as diligently outside the courtroom. Instead of simply accepting that the witnesses had the trial rescheduled she contacted the witnesses and found they simply didn't want to be in court Christmas Eve. Ms. Sulton forced the trial date and after much arguing had my case dismissed with prejudice. Ms. Sulton could not have given me a better Christmas gift. I recommend Ms. Sulton and Sulton Law Offices to anyone who needs a lawyer that actually works for you in and out of the courtroom, you will not be disappointed.

Easy to communicate, very helpful!

My experience with this firm was exceptional. My attorney Kelsey Penna was phenomenal. She came well equipped and ready to help me win my Civil Protection Order. Kelsey was professional, relentless, and made light work of the matter. I’m grateful to have had worked with such a skilled attorney, definitely would recommend to anyone facing similar issues in D.C.

Extremely knowledgeable and well known lawyer, highly recommend. Mr. Bruckheim was the best decision I made. He simplified the process for me and gave me straight answers. He was able to get my DUI dropped to a reckless driving!! Thank you so much Mr. Bruckheim :)

My experience with this firm was excellent they were very reliable, and they made sure that I was informed with everything that was going on with my case, they also got my case dismissed...

Lawyer Kelsey Penna was very easy to deal with and resolved any issues which resulted in a victory where I can continue to drive in Washington DC. Big thanks to her and the others at the law firm, Greg P.

I’m extremely happy and satisfied with attorney Sweta Patel. Other attorneys I consulted told me that a DPA deal in my DUI case, was going to be almost impossible because it is very difficult to get a DPA with an accident case in DC. Patel, however, was highly professional and knowledgeable in her field and was able to secure a DPA without any ramifications to my immigration issues. My case was dismissed without any conviction on my record or even a plea deal. I’m glad I decided to work with Sweta Patel and would definitely recommend for criminal cases.
