  • review rating 5  Mr. Kibria and his firm are amazing. I can’t say enough. Initially I was with a public defender. Although I had met and consulted with Mr. Kibria I decided to stay with the public defender figuring it was all the same with any lawyer. I was so wrong. My public defender was forcing me to eat a bs charge and i basically thought I had no choice but to agree. Weeks later when I was in court ready to eat the charge, Mr. Kibria saw me an asked what I was doing. I told him and he said I was crazy to eat a charge given the facts of my case. He said he would get my case dismissed. He took my case right then and there and requested a dismissal,l. In fact he got the government to agree to dismissal even before I had paid him. He got my case dismissed as he said he would. Unbelievable. He is the best defense attorney in Washington DC bar none. If you need a defense lawyer in dc don’t bother calling anyone else.

Your Personal DC and Fairfax Criminal Defense Attorneys – Always on Call, Always on the Ball

Washington DC Criminal Lawyer

At Ervin Kibria Law, we take our clients’ cases seriously because we know what is at stake—your quality of life. The punishment of jail time and heavy fines comes to mind the moment anyone mentions criminal charges, but those are not the only issues to worry about in these cases. The mere fact of having an arrest or conviction on record can sour relationships and deny opportunities, often long into the future. Even something relatively mundane like a traffic ticket can still lead to suspension of your license if mishandled, depriving you of the use of your car—one of the most vital modern tools for both business and private life. A criminal record can mean loss of employment, loss of child custody, denial of loans, and worse, turning your entire life upside down and leaving a lasting black mark against you that is difficult to overcome.

That is why we are here. As criminal defense attorneys, we are fully committed to defending you with all the knowledge, skill, and experience at our disposal. You can be assured that we will give our all because we have handled hundreds of cases like yours. We know just how much stress and pressure facing criminal charges can bring to people who have stood in the same place as you.

Our Practice Areas

DUI/DWI Defense

Many DUI/DWI offenders are first-time offenders who are usually responsible people in their daily lives. They “felt fine” to drive after drinking and did not realize just how they were putting themselves and others at risk.

The law, however, is very strict on DUI, especially in the District of Columbia. Even a first-time DUI conviction carries with it the potential for up to 180 days of jail time and up to $1,000 in fines, with possible mandatory incarceration of 10-20 days depending on blood alcohol content (BAC). You will also automatically have your driver’s license suspended. The punishments only get higher with further offenses, going up to 1 year in jail and a fine between $2,500 an $10,000 for a 3rd or subsequent offense.

It is also important to understand that the BAC required to get you in trouble for DUI is very low. While the legal limit for BAC in DC is 0.08, at which point you are considered legally intoxicated, penalties—including mandatory jail times—start applying from as low as 0.02 BAC. For the average person, a BAC of 0.08 is the result of 2-4 drinks, while a BAC of 0.02 can result from just one drink. It can be very easy to say “I’ve just had one drink, it’s fine!”, but it is that sort of thinking that can land you in big trouble with the law. DC has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to drinking and getting behind the wheel.

The zero-tolerance policy is especially true for underage drinkers. If anyone underage is caught with any amount of alcohol in their system while driving, they are immediately on the hook for a DWI offense. DC does not like its drivers to drive with any amount of alcohol in their systems and will punish accordingly.

If you have been charged with DUI or DWI, it is essential that you seek out experienced DC DUI Lawyer and aggressive legal representation to help you. Do not try to go it alone, even if the incident is your first offense. While it is quite possible to get a first-time DUI/DWI dismissed or have the punishment be diverted to an alcohol education program or community service instead of jail time, doing so requires knowledge of the proper court procedure and the limits acceptable to a particular judge and prosecutor. Remember, you can go to jail for several months even if it is your first DUI offense, so minimize your risks and consult with a knowledgeable DC criminal defense attorney like our Nabeel Kibria about your situation.

Do not be shy about calling Ervin Kibria Law even if it is your 2nd or subsequent DUI/DWI offense. Our DUI lawyers have handled plenty of cases for clients in such a position. DC criminal defense lawyer Nabeel Kibria recalls the story of DC resident who came to him with her 3rd DUI in less than 4 years. She was facing thousands in fines, mandatory jail time of 30 days, plus potentially one year in prison, with 3 years supervised probation thereafter. With Nabeel’s expertise and negotiation skills, he was able to get her a plea offer reducing the punishment to just 100 hours of community service, a mandatory alcohol program, and 1 year of probation. She served no jail time whatsoever. When she walked out of the courthouse a free woman, she was so grateful she shed tears of joy and proclaimed Nabeel the savior of her life.

Assault & Battery

Assault is a criminal offense that encompasses both actual physical attack and physical threats of violence (think raising your fists and walking at someone), and thus an “assault” charge can mean many different things depending on the context behind the arrest. Since the actual circumstances behind an assault charge can vary so widely, the punishment imposed for an assault conviction also vary to a similar degree.

Make no mistake, however. An assault charge, no matter how minor, is not something to be taken lightly. The least egregious form of assault—where the offender inflicts no physical injury whatsoever and only commits to the threat of violence—is “merely” a misdemeanor in DC and carries with it a potential sentence of up to 180 days in prison plus up to $1,000 in fines. Six months locked up for assault frequently means a lost job and a hard time finding another one once the sentence is served, among other troubles.

The classic case of assault, where significant physical injuries are inflicted, is a felony in DC. In the context of DC law, “significant physical injury” means injuries requiring hospitalization or immediate medical attention. If the assault involved significant physical injury to the victim, the offense carries a maximum penalty of 3 years in prison and/or up to $12,500 in fines—a very steep upgrade over misdemeanor assault.

There are even more serious types of assault, such as aggravated assault and assault with a deadly weapon, which carry even harsher penalties. In the assault context, a “deadly weapon” does not include only the obvious tools like a gun or a knife. A boot, a rock, a bar stool, a broken beer bottle—any of these can constitute a “deadly weapon” under the law if it is used in a way that can cause significant bodily injury or death. If your case involves assault with a deadly weapon, the punishment can reach as high as 10 years in prison! Not the type of case you want to leave with just any of the various Washington DC law firms.

Given the seriousness of an assault charge, it should be handled with the counsel of an experienced criminal defense law firm like Ervin Kibria Law. Our attorneys have helped hundreds of clients charged with assault get their charges reduced or dismissed, saving them from months or even years in prison. No matter the severity of the circumstances surrounding an assault charge, we at Ervin Kibria Law stand ready to work your case and bring to bear all the possible defenses available to you based on the facts.

One example of a legal defense that might be brought up against an assault charge is that of self-defense. On the surface, it is a rather simple argument. The other party attacked me first, so I was only retaliating out of self-defense. That seemingly simple argument can be very nuanced depending on the actual facts surrounding the alleged assault, however, and requires careful analysis of both the statutory law and real-world circumstances to bring out the most pertinent points for an individual’s case.

DC criminal defense lawyer Nabeel Kibria recalls working a case involving two men charged with assault after the other party came at them with a knife one night. In theory, it should have been a very simple case of self-defense. However, because the clients retaliated with what appeared to be too much force required for the situation and put the other party into the hospital, the self-defense angle was no longer so clear-cut. Faced with a challenging case, Nabeel was able to put together an eloquent argument for the court based on the clients’ personal backgrounds. The crux of the argument? The two men had recently immigrated from a politically unstable region. To these clients, who had many run-ins with violent people in their daily lives in their home country, this sort of self-defense was a necessary means of survival. Backed by this argument and Nabeel’s aggressive negotiation tactics, the two clients walked away with the assault charges completely dismissed—no penalties were applied at all.

Gun Possession Defense

Washington DC has one of the strictest gun control statutes in the country. You are still allowed to own a properly registered firearm if you are a DC resident, but there are very specific directions under the law on how to transport a gun in public areas while in DC. Notably, you must have the weapon unloaded; the weapon itself must be kept in a locked container; and the ammunition must be kept in a separate container from the gun.

The requirements to actually be able to own and register a firearm is also quite lengthy. The issue mainly boils down to having a record clean of any recent incidents involving violence, drugs, or previous mishandling of guns. It is notable that being deemed a chronic alcoholic or having two or more DUIs on your record within the last 5 years will disqualify you from gun ownership under the DC requirements. 

Despite the lengthy list of requirements, do not make the mistake of neglecting to register your gun or guns at all. A single offense of owning an unregistered firearm in DC can already mean up to 1 year in prison and fines up to $2,500. A second or subsequent offense upgrades the offense into a felony and penalties can suddenly spike by up to 5 times, potentially landing you in prison for up to 5 years, with a fine of up to $12,500.

The act of owning ammunition without a properly licensed firearm is also another separate charge the prosecution can tack onto the rap sheet, carrying with it a punishment of up to 1 year in prison and a fine up to $1,000.

As you can see, DC takes gun control very seriously. 

The owner of a properly registered firearm can also apply for a concealed carry license in DC. That means you are allowed to carry a firearm concealed upon your person, although DC law, once again, imposes many restrictions. You are not allowed to carry more ammunition than it takes to load the firearm twice, and no more than 20 rounds under any circumstances. There is also a long list of places in DC where it is illegal to carry guns at all, even if you do have a concealed carry license. These places include areas around schools, any stadiums and arenas, any building used by the US Government, the areas around the National Mall and White House, and several other locations. The full list can be found on the DC Metropolitan Police Department website.   

Due to the strict nature of Washington DC gun laws, it is very easy to run afoul of them. One major issue that often comes up is that DC does not honor the concealed carry permits of any other state. That means you must have a concealed carry permit issued by the DC Metropolitan Police Department to carry a concealed firearm within the District of Columbia, even if you already have a concealed permit from your home state. This is especially problematic for those who are simply taking a vacation in DC or are merely passing through the District on their way to another location.

DC criminal defense lawyer Nabeel Kibria recalls one of his many successful gun possession defense cases. The client was a gentleman from out of state who was on vacation in DC. He had a firearm in the trunk of his car, which was properly registered and licensed in his home state. When he got situated at his hotel and asked the bellhop to retrieve a piece of luggage from the trunk, the bellhop discovered the gun and immediately called the police. The client was quickly arrested and placed in holding. At 1AM that same night, Nabeel received a call from the client’s distraught wife and immediately took on the case. By the morning of the next day, the client was out of lockup and free to do as he pleased.

Reckless Driving Defense

Reckless driving has is defined within the DC Code as operating a vehicle “carelessly and heedlessly in willful or wanton disregard for the rights or safety of others, or without due caution and circumspection and at a speed or in a manner so as to endanger or be likely to endanger a person or property.”

A first-time conviction for reckless driving in DC is punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a fine up to $500. Subsequent offenses will incur greater punishments, with jail time of up to 1 year and up to $3,000 in fines for a 3rd or subsequent offense. A conviction for reckless driving in DC (first-time or otherwise) will also result in immediate suspension of your driver’s license.  

That all sounds rather serious, but what exactly does the definition for reckless driving actually encompass? As a good DC criminal defense attorney would tell you, that depends on the circumstances. Reckless driving has been used to cover behavior that includes, but is not limited to: excessive speeding; tailgating; failing to yield or stop for police or other emergency vehicles with sirens and lights on; and other conduct which is considered dangerous. The legal definition is intentionally broad and vague to allow police officers and prosecutors the ability to apply the label of “reckless driving” to a wide array of circumstances. The point is to cast a wide net, and sometimes that wide net can catch people who do not actually belong in there.   

Having such a wide net does mean that there are many places for a clever and experienced Washington DC criminal defense attorney to construct persuasive arguments and defenses. The very same vagueness within the definition of reckless driving that allows officers and prosecutors to argue for their interpretation of the law also allows a skilled defense attorney to dispute and argue for dismissal of the reckless driving charges. A seasoned DC criminal defense lawyer can often suggest that the officer was mistaken or overly aggressive in applying these vague statutes.

DC criminal defense lawyer Nabeel Kibria is especially successful in navigating this vagueness within the statute and getting the court to see his side of the argument. His deep breadth of experience with the law, outstanding negotiation skills, and insightful knowledge of the local prosecutors has earned him great respect within the courts of DC. He handles a steady stream of 8-10 reckless driving cases coming in every month, and out of the hundreds of cases he has handled so far, the majority ended with the complete dismissal of charges against the client. Even in the cases that did not end with dismissal of charges, Nabeel still managed to negotiate some type of diversion program—such as community service or a drivers’ education program—ensuring that no jail time was served by any client under his care.

Drug Defense

dc criminal lawyerCriminal involvement with drug-related offenses can be broken up into two general categories, each carrying significantly different degrees of punishments: consumer versus producer. A consumer of a drug does just that—consume the drug in question, and little else. A producer actually manufactures and often also distributes the drug with the aid of co-conspirators. The law does not look particularly kindly on either case, but the punishments for being involved in the manufacture and/or distribution of the drug are significantly higher than those imposed on a mere consumer.

That is not to say the punishment a mere consumer might face is light. In DC, a conviction for possession of a controlled substance without the intent to distribute (simple possession) still carries with it a punishment including up to 180 days of jail time and/or a fine of up to $1,000. But at least the law does allow for some degree of leniency here, as there is a special program for first-time simple possession offenders whose criminal records are completely clean of any other drug-related offenses.

If you meet the above conditions, it is possible to ask for one-time leniency from the court. This is best done with the aid of a DC criminal defense lawyer experienced in handling drug cases. If the court does choose to grant leniency on review, they can put the guilty judgment on hold and instead assign a probation period of up to 1 year, with reasonable conditions. If you do not violate the probation conditions and do as the court instructs, the court will dismiss the proceedings, meaning you will not have a conviction for simple possession on your record. The court will still keep a nonpublic record of the dismissal for the purpose of denoting that you already used up your one-time leniency under the law.

Do note that simple possession of liquid PCP liquid form is actually a felony in DC. Conviction for this offense can be punished by a fine of up to $12,500, jail time of up to 3 years, or both. The first-time leniency provision can still be invoked, however.  

Actual involvement in the manufacture and distribution of controlled substances is a major felony and a conviction carries punishments in line with the seriousness of the offense. The actual severity of the punishment depends on the Schedule of the drug involved in the case, reaching as high as 30 years of jail time and up to $75,000 in fines when Schedule I and II narcotic drugs are involved. Being involved in distribution to minors will double the maximum applicable jail time, and recruiting minors to distribute will result in additional penalties on top of it all—up to another 10-20 years in prison and $25,000 to $50,000 in fines.

Of course, that is the absolute maximum applicable sentence, and most will not find themselves in circumstances where they will be facing such enormous penalties. Nevertheless, drug charges must always be taken seriously and should be handled by skilled and experienced DC criminal defense lawyers, not simply any Washington DC law firm.

DC criminal defense lawyer Nabeel Kibria of Ervin Kibria Law has handled many drug-related criminal defense cases, small and large alike. You might think that he would shy away from cases involving felony drug charges, but he views them as a welcome challenge. In fact, Nabeel recalls a client charged with possession and intent to distribute cocaine, a charge that would have earned him anywhere from 10 to 30 years in jail if the client were to be convicted. By properly attacking the testimony of the officers involved and cross-examining them on their lack of evidence, Nabeel was able to get the case dismissed on the strength of his litigation skills. Instead of rotting away in a cell for multiple decades, the client was able to leave the court house as a free man.

That is the experience Ervin Kibria Law brings to the table. Call us today to schedule a free consultation!

If you are in deep trouble, Nabeel is the lawyer you have to hire! I don't know what I would have done without him. What he did was simply amazing! I was charged with my 2nd DUI/OWI in less than a year, along with driving on a suspended license. I had a drink, drove on a suspended license, and hit a car. This is what I had going against me in my case. I was facing a conviction for 2nd DUI, OWI, and driving on a suspended license. I was facing a mandatory minimum 10 days in jail, if not more. The prosecutor was offering a plea where I would plea to a 2nd DUI conviction, driving on suspended license, and would be serving 10 days in jail. All the prosecutor was offering was to take the OWI off the table. I thought I was dead to rights. I was even willing to accept the plea, because I didn't think I could win at trial. Then Mr. Kibria showed me why he is awesome. He told me he wasn't going to let me go to jail and that he wasn't going to allow my future to be ruined. He said we are going to trial and that he was going to fight the prosecutors on every angle. And that's exactly what he did. He took the case to trial and beat all the charges. He got me an acquittal on ALL the charges. He saved my life. Nabeel is a truly amazing attorney. Not only is he awesome in court and a life saver, he is someone who cares abut you as a person. He was with me every step of the way, whenever I needed him, from the day I called him to talk about the case to the moment we walked out of court free. He did a lot more than just bail me out of a dead end situation, he gave me support and advise and made me feel safe. He gave me hope. If you are in trouble, if you are facing an impossible situation, then Mr. Kibria is the lawyer you NEED. He cares, he fights hard and most importantly, HE WINS! View on AVVO

Mr. Kibria was such an excellent negotiator that he not only avoided trial, but he got my case dismissed after a very short diversion period, which I was actually able to choose. He also did all this at an amazingly generous rate. I was lucky to find Nabeel and recommend him to anyone in trouble. View on AVVO

I was very concerned and apprehensive as I did not know exactly what I was walking into at the time. All I knew was that I was potentially facing jail time if convicted. Upon hiring Mr. Kibria he was very considerate, understanding and thoroughly explained the legal process moving forward. View on AVVO

Great Criminal Defense Attorney

I am minor international student studying in the United States, and this was my first experience with the US court system. I had a serious criminal traffic matter, but Mr. Ervin carefully explained to me how the court system works and what I should expect. He put a lot of time into my case and was always available. It was a complicated case, but he got it dismissed in the first hearing. I would recommend him to anyone! View on AVVO

Great, Patient Attorney

Mr. Ervin was my lawyer when I was facing a serious charge during a dark time in my life. I've been through the legal system before and I've met my share of lawyers. Most of them don't have the time to really listen to what I have to say. They don't care what my story is. Mr. Ervin did care, and he did listen. He won my assault case and I definitely recommend him! View on AVVO

Exceptional Lawyers Who Care

Before contacting Mr. Ervin, I called two other attorneys about my synthetic marijuana case and they both told me that there was nothing to do and that I should just plead guilty and ask the judge for mercy. Luckily I made one more call to Mr. Ervin. First I liked that he was younger cause it felt like he talked to me like a person. He spent time explaining the case to me and agreed to help me out. He found out that there was a problem with the test and got the case dismissed. He did a great job and I'm very happy. View on AVVO

Awesome Defense

I hired Mr. Ervin to help with my possession of marijuana case. Other attorneys I spoke to told me that there was not much to do but take a plea deal and suck it up. But Mr. Ervin immediately saw problems with the case and thought that the search was illegal. We went all the way to trial and I was found not guilty. Mr. Ervin did a fantastic job! View on AVVO

Not Guilty!

Justin is a man of his words and I couldn’t ask for a better lawyer. Justin fought for my case and was with me every step of the way. Communication was concise and he was available all the time. The thing that impressed me the most is not the outcome of my case but how he handled everything easily. View on AVVO

Terrific Outcome!
