We represent clients in all types of criminal cases in state and federal court in D.C. and Maryland, from simple misdemeanors to serious felonies.

We are highly respected criminal defense attorneys in the D.C. area with real trial chops to show for it.  As former trial attorneys at the D.C. Public Defender Service - one of the best trial offices in the country - we have tried close to 75 cases to verdict, and we regularly take on federal prosecutors and law-enforcement agencies at all stages of prosecution.  

Arbitrations and Administrative Hearings

We represent clients in arbitration hearings at the local and national levels involving a range of issues, from employee grievances to complex matters of contract interpretation.  We also represent individuals facing adverse disciplinary action at work, from internal proceedings with their employers to appeals to local, state, and federal administrative agencies and governing bodies.   

Title IX Campus Disciplinary Defense

We represent students at colleges and universities nationwide who are facing allegations of serious misconduct on and off campus, which can have serious consequences affecting enrollment and even exposure to criminal prosecution.  We help our clients navigate the school's investigative process and zealously protect their interests in proceedings before school administrators.  


If you were fired from your job, or if you have suffered unfair and unlawful working conditions, such as being subjected to sexual harassment or racial discrimination, we have the experience and expertise to help you make things right.


We started our careers fighting for those who often do not have a voice in the system, and we have continued that crusade all these years later. 


As former public defenders, we have tried close to 75 cases to verdict, so we have the deep experience necessary to apply pressure to a case.
