REVIEWS OF Shawn Sukumar Attorney at Law IN Washington

Audrey Yap

Shawn is one of the most dedicated, talented attorneys that I have had the pleasure of working with. As a legal assistance attorney, I am often called upon to provide attorney referrals to clients in need of representation in criminal law matters. Shawn is one of the few attorneys that I would recommend without reservation. His commitment to his clients and passion for the law are unmatched.

My name is Luis and I was charged with Assault and with threats involving a weapon due to accusations by my wife’s family. The family gave false accusations in Maryland and DC. I found Price Benowitz online and hired Shawn Sukumar to help me with my cases. The DC was complicated and took a long time but the attorney was very patient, took the case to Trail and I am very happy to say that we won the trial and I left with no charges. The staff was very helpful. They helped me with translating every time I called and went to the office I would absolutely recommend this office. Mi nombre es Luis y fui cargado con agresión y amenazas con arma. La familia de mi ex esposa hizo falsas acusaciones en Maryland Y DC. Encontré la oficina de Price Benowitz por internet y contrate a Shawn Sukumar para que ayudaran con los casos. El caso de DC fue un poco largo y complicado pero el abogado tuvo paciencia, llevo el caso a juicio y quede limpio y sin cargos en el caso. Las secretarias eran muy amables y los traductores me ayudaron con la traducción cada vez que iba a la oficina y llamaba. Definitivamente recomendaría a la oficina.

I just want to think you so much for all the help! I can’t thank you enough. I applied for a government position that I needed to get a Security Clarance for a couple months back and thanks to you I was able to get that job since my DUI case has been dismissed. If I would have had a conviction on my record I wouldn’t have had a opportunity. So thanks again! I am going to keep your information for the future for anyone that may need your services. For anyone out there looking for an experienced attorney, Shawn is the guy to call!

Shortly after my 21st birthday I was charged with a DWI within that same year a DUI, 2 separate charges; both incidents very circumstantial. I accepted responsibility though I was in complete disagreement with what the prosecutions in court were suggesting I receive for "punishment". I contacted Price Benowitz by "walk-in" due to their office being walking distance from the court building. During my free consultation I was referred to Mr. Sukumar, he accepted my case and we began working toward goals I laid out. He assured me I would have to do my part while he guaranteed to do his (stay out of trouble, handle daily responsibility, keep-clean, stay positive, etc.) I did all of this. My case had ups and downs due to other personal conflict and obligation aside from these situations. He continually gave advice to fortify my chances at trial and sentencing. The chance of mandatory jail time was expected and ideas of it were being thrown around between the judge and prosecution... ended up with community service and probation. Prosecution against me, my own probation officer not advocating all the POSITIVE and PRODUCTIVE things I was doing, Shawn Sukumar held his ground and fought diligently for me. I give thanks for him all the time, and am grateful for his optimism. He researches all aspects; definitely a man with a good heart and pure intention for his clients. Thank You.

Shawn Sukumar is an affable but professional attorney who is very prompt in his communication and I would thoroughly recommend him to anybody in need of legal services. This was in the DC area, btw.


Shawn was very attentive and responsive. He was able to be supportive while being realistic in regards to my outcomes. I am grateful for his services.

Bangaly Keita

WHAT A KNOWLEDGEABLE & PROFESSIONAL individual!!! Word cannot express how grateful and thankful I am for Mr Sukumar for not only showing that he cared about my situation but also went above and beyond to get my case dismissed. My case was a though one, which would have required me to testify against another individual, but Mr sukumar guaranteed that he would beat the case without me having to testify and he did! After all the evidences the government had against me, he still found a way to get me out of that situation by predicting how the judge was going to make decision and which factor would come into play. The same way he predicted it was exactly the same way the judge verdict was given. I would recommend Mr Sukumar to any person I know and all my family member that may or will have a criminal case they're dealing with. Thank you again Mr Sukumar!

Anon Ymous

Shawn is a talented attorney dedicated to his craft. After consulting with many other attorneys, I felt that Shawn and his firm were not only competent, but had the resources necessary to launch a strong defense. Shawn earned my trust and made me feel comfortable throughout a rather uncomfortable process. I was clear about the outcome I wanted (and deserved), and Shawn engineered the game plan.

Mr. Sukumar represented me from 2017 until 2018. This was one of the darkest and most fearful times of my life. From the moment I walked into Mr. Sukumar's office I was not only met with professionalism, but a caring and considerate attitude that continued throughout us working together. Mr. Sukumar was very knowledgeable and worked diligently on my case to insure the best possible outcome. There were several times in which I was frustrated and dismayed but Mr. Sukamar always greeted me with a smile, a handshake, and assured me that he was doing everything that he could. I would recommend Mr. Sukumar because he us timely, professional, wise, diligent, he knows the law, and he genuinely cares about his clients. Thank you Mr. Sukumar for seeing more in me than my mistakes.

My Phone 2018

Had this defense on a simple assault along with 2 other misdemeanors which was related to the case this defense was a joke was over paid for representation had very lack of knowledge of investigation tactics such as mpd crime cameras where the event took place Shakumar even offered me to plea even with substantial evidence In my favor.I would highly Not recommend this defense if you are on the fight for your freedom please consult with other lawyers in Washington D.C. Not to mention when u call his office to speak with Shakumar their is a secretary whom has to ask you a bunch of questions personal questions ones who feels comfortable speaking to a secretary about personal matters ? Which should only be discussed with the attorney (Confidential ). Besides will she be the one in the courtroom representing you or..

Relieved Client

I hired Mr. Sukumar for a serious matter. My future was at stake, and I needed the best possible representation. I looked up on the internet and found Shawn. I never had an attorney before, but he was one of the highest rated attorneys online. I called him and he arranged a meeting, where I explained my situation. Shawn analyzed the facts I gave him, and made me understand the situation significantly better. He provided me instant relief. I was wrongfully charged with a felony, and I didn't know what to do. My life was disrupted. I told my family during this whole ordeal that Shawn Sukumar needs to be the point of contact for me. When I had my initial consultation with Shawn, the Detective called me. After I told the detective that I hired a lawyer, Shawn took over and spoke with the detective in front of me. Immediately I knew Shawn was the right person for the job. I had no other referrals, and knew no other attorneys, but seeing Shawn talking to the detectives, I knew this is the guy who was going to fight for me until the end. Shawn did it, and proved himself during the trial process. He basically used all the evidence that the prosecutors had against me, and turned it around on them. Shawn was a great legal adviser, he was very prompt, very active, and responsive. Shawn is a very good attorney and many people are going to want to hire him. He is very calculated and thinks things through. Let Shawn do his work, and all your emails,text and phone calls will get responded to. Shawn doesn't make decisions without thinking heavily on the consequences. It showed for me when the Jury came back and said Not Guilty.

Anna Kurien

I have known Shawn Sukumar since 2005 and he is a dedicated and talented criminal defense attorney. He is skilled and passionate. I recommend hiring Shawn for your legal issues!

Shawn Sukumar took a lot of time up front to help me understand how things were going to happen, and what steps should be taken. I had a million questions and he responded to all of them. Shawn was very helpful and very patient and reduced the anxiety I was feeling about the situation. Mr. Sukumar proved to be an expert and handled my case in a truly professional manner. He was very thorough and is an absolutely professional, and I would recommend him to friends and family.

Jay Garrison

Matthew Tranquada

I was searching for a good attorney to help me out with a legal matter, and found a blog article written by a staff member at Price Benowitz detailing the legal and procedural issues involved. I contacted Price Benowitz and one other firm, but Price Benowitz was much more prompt and helpful in their reply. After visiting Price Benowitz I was put in touch with Shawn, and during our first meeting he made me feel much more comfortable with what was going on and it seemed he was well informed about the issues. I like to be a well-informed consumer and knowing that price Benowitz had not only experience with the issues but a personal history with such cases made me more comfortable with my decision to retain their services. I was very happy with the results of my case. Shawn kept me well informed and answered many questions about the process. He mitigated all risks, and was very knowledgeable about the best ways to control the issues. Shawn was very articulate in court, and he had an excellent rapport with the other court officers. He had a stage presence in the court room that made him stand out amongst the other attorneys present, though he was always concise and professional. I would recommend Shawn for anyone that needs legal assistance in DC. Shawn took the time to take me from place to place and made me feel comfortable throughout my dealings with the DC court system.

Gustavo Suarez

Its important to have a good legal support when needed, specially if it is the first time that you have to defend yourself. Shawn was my the trustworthy attourney who I knew I could count on. His calm demeanor in our first meeting was exactly what I needed and his knowledge on the topic and positive but realistic actitud towards the case gave me the assurance that everything will workout in my favor. The deal he negociated with the court was excellent and now I am able to go back to my normal life almost as if the episode never happened. Forever grateful !

Shawn is an excellent attorney. I always felt that Shawn and his firm were both extremely attentive and helped answer all the questions I had throughout the entire process. He was also exceptionally responsive and professional. I would highly recommend his service!

Shane Conrad

Shawn took a stressful situation and made it so much easier. I was dealing with a charge while living out of state so paying for flights every week wasnt an option. Shawn took a round-about and legal way to ensure the process was as easy as possible for me and helped me win my case. Shawn was already friendly and willing to go the extra mile to help ease the situation. I no longer live in DC, but if Shawn lived anywhere near me, he'd be on a permanent retainer, just in case, for any of my attorney/litigation needs.


A Gratefull Marine

I hired Shawn and his team to help me out when I was facing false allegations of sexual assault. My case turned out amazing, and I received a not guilty verdict. Shawn was absolutely instrumental early on when I was questioned by Law Enforcement. He made sure that I didn't self incriminate myself and always looked out for my best interests. Once charges where brought against me, I knew that Shawn mitigated a significant amount of potential damage. During my case, he was also instrumental in making sure that my case didn't last forever, and my right to a speedy trial was upheld. Thank You Very much Shawn and the team at Price Benowitz for ensuring my liberty. You can't ask for a better verdict than - Not Guilty.
