Operation of a Vehicle After License Suspension

In the District of Columbia, operating a motor vehicle after suspension/revocation is a criminal act. The prosecutor does not need to prove that you had knowledge that your operating privileges were suspended or revoked in order to convict you for this offense. You need an experienced attorney to assist you with this charge.

Weapon Possession

Unlawful Possession of a Weapon is a serious charge punishable by substantial jail time. However, there are exceptions under which your charge may fall. An experienced attorney can work to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are not being charged erroneously. If you were arrested along with other people, an experienced attorney will ensure that you are not prosecuted for someone else’s guns or other weapons.

Drug Possession/Distribution

Charges of Drug Possession, including Cocaine, PCP, Synthetic Marijuana (K2), Marijuana, Heroin and other drugs are serious offenses in the District of Columbia. However, an experienced attorney may successfully challenge the government to include questioning the way police officers stopped your vehicle, searched your body, or entered your home. If you were arrested along with other people, an experienced attorney will ensure that another person’s drugs are not unlawfully imputed to you.


Criminal convictions on your public record can affect your ability to secure employment, housing, loans and other opportunities. In the District of Columbia certain offenses can be expunged. An experienced attorney can help you expunge your convictions so that you can move past your experiences with the criminal justice system and get on with your life.
