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.

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.

Michael Bruckheim is a top-flight lawyer defending the D.C. Superior Court and Maryland courts. I am delighted to refer potential clients to him for matters that conflict with my calendar. He is smart, focused, and knows his way around the courthouse. He is a straight shooter. I highly recommend his services.
