I don't usually get in trouble, but I had a fake ID and was caught with it at a bar. I found the firm through a friend who knew Travis. I initially met with Shawn and it was good... everything got explained in the first meeting. I was really nervous about what was going to happen, but Shawn was pretty good about telling me how it was going to go down so I felt calmer after that meeting. I had to go to court twice and each time it was straight forward and quick. As far as I know, Shawn did everything right. He must have because all charges were dismissed!

I called in the morning and was given a meeting that SAME DAY. I met with attorney Shawn Sukumar and it was a great experience. He kept me informed at every step of the process and my DUI charges were dismissed!

Felony Case Dismissed

I was charged with felony assault. My record before this charge was clean, with no convictions. I was very anxious when I was originally charged. The system really tried to prolong my case because of the seriousness of the charge, but David used his knowledge and stuck with the case. He advised me about what to expect from pre-trial services and other requirements. He fought for a long time. He kept telling me to stay with the court's guidelines and the case was finally dismissed.

Dismissed Before Trial

I was charged with a major crime. The charges were made up, but nobody was giving me a shot. I was told I was going to spend the rest of my life in jail. One attorney and wanted me to pays tens of thousands of dollars, but Mr. Benowitz made a payment plan that I could pay for. He went through every detail. The case was dismissed even before trial because of the thorough private investigators. Dave made sure everything worked itself out

DUI case found not guilty

I was involved in a DUI case where I felt I was not guilty. I spoke with several lawyers in the DC area that wanted me to take a plea. But because I was robbed and that was the reason why I was driving, I felt that this cause should go on my side if I took it to trial.



I chose David because he seemed very down to earth and extremely professional. He told me that I did have a case and that we could win in trial.



After a year of getting my case continued, we ended up winning the case because of David's hard work and dedication to justice. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is serious about winning their case.

Big Second Chance

I was facing second degree murder and more than twenty years in jail. Attorney David Benowitz represented me. From the first time we met in Spring 2008 he was there for me, he answered all my many questions and hung in through it all. He gave me great advise about choices I had to make in the case. As a result of his hard work I ended up walking out of the courtroom. I am very happy because I had a change to be a free man again.

See the Benefits of Good Lawyer

I was facing reckless driving with a possible six points on my license. I drive commercial vehicles for a living, so this threatened my livelihood. I would have gone from zero to six points points that would have stayed on my license for ten years because of my commercial driver's license instead of a standard two years for a normal drivers license. I also had a job application in. I was worried about finding a lawyer. I walked out of the DC DMV to find their office down the street, across from the courthouse. I got a great attorney who went with me the day of the hearing. The payment plan was extremely reasonable. The confidence that the staff and attorneys had in me and my case kept me calm and confident as well.



I didn't think I had much of a defense and with my luck the officer who had me on radar showed to the hearing. The police officer spoke and I was sure I was done. Who can beat the Radar? My attorney cross examined the officers and found out that he screwed up.



The judge agreed and found me not guilty. I could not believe these words, not guilty! The officer who gave me the ticket later admitted that when he saw my attorney, he knew he was in trouble. Thanks for your hard work, you guys are good. Now I can confidently apply for any driving position I want with my clean record.

Free Man

I am a free man because of the Law Office of David Benowitz. First my felony attempted murder charge was reduced to a misdemeanor charge. Then my case which was a slam dunk for the WMATA and the Government became a slam dunk for me. I have been Acquitted of all charges after facing several years in jail. Thank you for letting me be a free man.

Great Attorney

I used David for an issue I had recently. He got the case dismissed and didn't charge all that much. He is easy to work with and really smart.

Made the Impossible Possible

I wanted to thank David for everything he did for me. I was facing several counts of obstruction of justice related to a homicide case. I was facing up to 57 years in prison. David and the other lawyers Amanda and Rosie did great work in finding information about witnesses. They were able to take away their credibility on the stand catching them in lies. The hard work they did paid off and I was found not guilty. It feels real good to be out. It was a life changing event and I am thankful for Dave's hard work and dedication to the case. M. Blakney
