The Future of Criminal DNA Collection in 2015
http://ow.ly/GWJHj
DNA can reveal an extraordinary amount of private information about you, including familial relationships, medical history, predisposition for disease, and possibly even behavioral tendencies and sexual orientation. While DNA testing in a criminal context has some benefits—such as supporting innocence claims—the mass, suspicionless collection, testing, and storing of genetic material from large populations creates a danger for privacy that only g...

I was referred specifically to Mr. Benowitz by my employment attorney. I was able to leave a voicemail for him, and he was prompt in responding to me. We discussed my case over the phone, and he was very knowledgeable. He had a strategy to get me the best result possible. Throughout the entire process, Dave was very responsive and was able to answer any questions I had. He was able to obtain me a favorable result at the conclusion of case; I would refer anyone dealing with a similar situation to Mr. Benowitz and Price Benowitz LLP in the future.

I was facing a very serious charge of Sexual Assault. I was innocent of the charges from the beginning and facing very serious time for this. I had just gotten out of the Marines, and going through college and I knew this could ruin my future. I called a few offices, and Dave significantly stood out. I left him a voicemail, and his team got back to me almost immediately. I was a completely wreck when I spoke to him, but after my initial consultation Dave made me feel at ease and I knew something could be done. I wanted to fight this all the way, since the charges were completely false. He kept me in contact at all times with email or phone. He was very transparent with everything that was going on, and he was always just a phone call away. I had a few options on how to proceed, and I made the decision to take it to trial in front of a judge. Dave did an excellent job with the case and proved that there was no case at all. My charges were completely dropped – no probation, not “dismissed”, the verdict was- NOT GUILTY. He was absolutely worth the investment, and thanks to him I was able to graduate college and get a great job instead of spending time in jail for false allegations.

David represented someone very close to me and was able to get all of the charges dropped. Very friendly and welcoming office environment, and no complaints about the legal services provided. David will definitely use all of his resources to get you the best results for your case. If you're in trouble, look no further, Price Benowitz is the best law firm in DC!

When looking for a traffic attorney I reached out to a couple different lawyers and Price Benowitz, LLP was the only one to respond. I was connected with attorney Peter Biberstein and then I sent in some information so he had a better idea. He made the process very easy, took it off my hands and managed to find a discrepancy in the ticket and get the ticket dropped. Overall, I'm very happy with the services I received and felt he was communicative throughout the process.

My son was facing a drug charge, and we wanted the absolute best representation for him. We went on the internet and looked for someone who was local and was working often with the court system in DC, and Dave’s address was near the court house so we reached out for a consultation. My wife, son and I met with Dave about my son’s case. He treated our son as an adult. Dave was there to represent him but also to help him make good life choices. Dave made it clear that he would take care of him. The frustrating thing about the case was how long the case took…. To no fault of Dave, my son’s case was linked to a bigger case and our court appearances where very strung out to keep up with the other case. Dave made it clear that this was going to take some time, but he would keep up us up to date with every step in the case. During this time, we were never feeling in the dark. Dave kept us up to date, and would respond to us that day or the next. We were never kept waiting wondering “why didn’t you come back to us”. From the time when we first went to court it was very clear that Dave knew everyone in court and they knew and respected him. That included the judges, prosecutors, and even the court clerks. Each time Dave proposed something to the prosecutors they agreed. There is much comfort in knowing that Dave knows how the system works, and that he would get it sorted out. In my son’s case Dave got the charges expunged. There was even a time when my son could not complete his community service due to an accident, and Dave sorted that out with the court so it would have no repercussions. I also wanted to note that Dave was really considerate about the funding of the case. There is no doubt that Dave put in more time than what was covered by the retainer fee, but never charged us for it.

A Greatful Client

I was facing a 2nd degree attempted murder & 10 other accounts including first degree burglary, first degree assault and many others. I was facing over 75 years in prison. My friends and family tried to contact several lawyers while I was in Jail, and even came to jail to speak to me. Each one gave me their thoughts and what they could do about the case. By far Mr. Benowitz was significantly different then all of the attorneys who came to visit me. Dave was very realistic about my case, and assured me that he would take care of me. I really liked that Dave didn’t give me ideas on what to do right away. Dave absorbed the information, and seemed very calculated. I spoke with my family thoroughly about the decision to hire an attorney and we chose to Hire Dave. Dave did not let us down, his litigation skills are impeccable. During the bond revocation trial he proved that the main witness while on the stand, was lying. It was very clear to the judge and prosecutor that the accusations were false thanks to Dave’s litigation skills. Dave destroyed her credibility. Dave was able to get ALL the counts thrown out, and I just ended up with a PBJ for second degree assault. While in the middle of the case I was also arrested twice for allegedly violating a protective order connected with the criminal case, and he was able to get both those incidents totally squashed. Dave was very organized, well prepared, and knowledgeable about my whole case. He showed extreme professionalism throughout the entire ordeal. He did an amazing job keeping me calm, and never set my expectations higher than reality. He always informed me about all possible scenarios throughout my whole case. I am EXTREMELY happy about what happened. He literally saved my life. You cannot imagine how it feels to be charged with 11 counts of lies and accusations and walk away with the whole case totally dismissed. Dave is absolutely worth the investment. I really can’t thank David Benowitz enough and everyone else at his firm that helped with the investigation of the case. I would recommend David Benowitz for ANY criminal case, he is worth the investment and will get the best possible result for you or a loved one.

Back in late 2012, I was arrested for the very serious charge of DUI. While under arrest, I chose not to submit to the breathalyzer test. The police officers told me that I would lose my driving privileges for 1 year and my insurance would go up and I would need to do community service. After conversing with several friends, it was recommended that I contact David Benowitz of Price Benowitz LLP. Throughout the process and the many court dates, Dave provided me with his situational advice and in fact discouraged me from taking a plea that was offered by the US Park Service. If I had taken this plea, I would have had to admit guilt and the consequences would have been devastating. After several months of navigating through the process and following Dave’s advice, my case was completely dismissed. I am extremely happy with the results and the service Mr. Benowitz provided and I would highly recommend his services, as he CAN handle the most difficult of cases while also keeping his client calm.

When I was first charged with Domestic Violence I was scared because my life was on the line and while looking online I read a great review on a criminal defense attorney on the website so I called the and spoke with the staff and felt comfortable knowing that I would meet with Attorney Shawn Shukumar that works under David Benowitz. He was very flexible with my budget. After signing we were in constant communication especially because we had only 2 1/2 weeks. Today went to court and I was overwhelmed because the trial was running late and I was afraid of having another continuance. Shawn presented himself very professionally and pulled out all his cards and today to excitement and relief this is over and I was found Not Guilty. I am very happy with my choice in choosing the law office of Price Benowitz. AMEN!
