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.

Mr. Benowitz's office assisted in my personal injury case. Everything was cut dry and to the point. My legal team made me feel like family instead of a client. I would recommend them to anyone.

Short Version: Exceptional and rare group of attorneys and staff!!!! Just hire them when you get the chance, you WILL NOT get a better team of attorneys and staff to work with and represent you!!!!!!!!!!! Detail: In October 2009 I was involved in a situation whereby I was assaulted and later arrested for a Felony of assault with a deadly weapon. My family called The Law Office of David Benowitz, along with various other offices over the weekend to obtain an attorney for me. This was the ONLY firm to ever call back and quite instantly, beginning to work with my family and I almost immediately. After being in jail for the first time in my life (and in DC of all places) I was a wreck, physically and emotionally injured. All of the fear I felt two days later before my arraignment, Attorney Roseanna Chase approached me that very Monday and relieved so much of the anxiety I felt. After my arraignment I was escorted to her office, the Law Office of David Benowitz, where the legal process began for me. Throughout the next 6 months I worked closely with Roseanna on my case. She kept me updated on the entire process including investigations, court dates, explanations of the many “what next/ what if” questions I often called her about. Roseanna was amazing at keeping me abreast of every detail of procedure and updates of my case from all angles. She has always been firm and honest about my case, never “keeping me in the dark” about anything and always being completely truthful about what I could expect at any point in the process. Later, at my final trial, she was extremely firm and strong in the courtroom. She demonstrated her highly legal mind and experience and showed no fear, alleviating much of my own anxiety and uncertainty. At this trial, where I had pled not guilty to what became of my felony, 2 misdemeanors, Roseanna made a Motion for Judgement of Acquittal and won this motion on both counts. Apparently this rarely and almost never happens, just proving how efficient Roseanna and the Office of David Benowitz really is. She was highly prepared and I felt like I was on a team with her the whole time because she never kept me wondering about what was happening in the Courtroom. She was truly exceptional and efficient in Court. I have seen many attorneys and legal staff throughout my over 6 years of experience working in the legal field, and I have honestly never met a group of attorneys who work so efficiently individually and as a team as this group of attorneys and legal staff. I was never in court by myself, always called, texted and/or emailed often and treated with the utmost honesty, directness and empathy by all of the attorneys and staff I worked with. My case was very uncertain for most of the 6 months, but Roseanna used all of her knowledge and experience to make the judicial process work to its fullest capability. Attorneys David Benowitz and Jason Kalafat also worked with me on several occasions when Roseanna was involved in other trials and matters and they were amazing as well. Also, the staff that I personally worked with including Patrick Henning, Matt Lawson and Marquita Johnson, were and are an indispensable portion of the team. They each aided me at any and every time I called and were nothing but courteous and direct with me. Everyone at this Firm was incredibly exceptional at their professions and I am unable to repay them for the wonderful experience I had with them in this process. They kept me hopeful during one of the most difficult periods in my life where I was suffering physically and emotionally and they never failed to go out of their way at any time to make the process easier. I cannot thank or recommend their exceptional quantity and quality of service enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

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!

DUI defense attorney David Benowitz got my case dismissed. I was charged with DUI because of an incident in Adams Morgan. The case seemed like an example mistaken identity. I called their firm on a Friday, and they were the first to respond. I was struck by David and the staff's professionalism and timely follow up. My case lasted over 14 months, and throughout David was sure to keep in contact with me to let me know what to expect at court. David really pushed the prosecutors, and ultimately the case was dismissed before it went to trial.
