Kelsey and Sweta represented me for a Civil Protection Order (CPO) and Title IX Investigation in DC. They were both wonderful to work with and extremely supportive. I hope I never have to, but I would gladly retain them again!

I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Bruckheim several years ago when he was practicing on his own before he and his partner formed Bruckheim & Patel - Washington DC. Every time I speak with Michael and we get into a legal discussion about DUI in Washington DC, or specific criminal cases in DC, I am always blown away with his knowledge and expertise. He is truly at the top of his game. Michael introduced me to Sweta several years later and can see why he was so anxious to partner with her. She is one tough criminal attorney. If you find yourself in need of a dui lawyer in Washington DC, or need a criminal attorney for any other issue in the District, this is the one law firm you need to call.

Stop. Just stop it. Stop scrolling and searching. Stop worrying. Stop thinking about your problem. Start moving to a solution. Start protecting yourself. Start protecting your family. For 21 years of my life, I lived in Bethesda MD. I went to Wyngate Elementary. I went to Tilden Middle. I went to Georgetown Prep. Then off to college and law school. I moved away to Pennsylvania. I tell you this for a reason. I still have a lot of friends and family friends in and around the Washington DC area. When they need help from time to time, I turn to these folks. They have helped a lot of my friends. I trust them. You should trust them too. Give them a call today. Like I said stop worrying. Start moving. Start getting help. Start now!
