    Mr. Kibria is an excellent, client-focused lawyer. Even though our case was small, he took the time to fully understand its specifics and patiently answered all our questions on the process. He made sure he was well-prepared for the hearing, and got our traffic ticket dismissed. Our experience working with him was great, and we would definitely recommend Mr. Kibria’s services for traffic-related issues.read more

    Mr Kibria is a very outstanding Lawyer he helped me with a recent case of the year of 2022 dealing with a gun charge in the city of Dc which dropped my felony charges into misdemeanor charges with no jail time an a 1 year of probation sentence which after will not be on my record.

    Mr. Nabeel Kibria is the awesome lawyer that I’ve come across in react times. He knows his thing as a lawyer, works with his senses and with great respect towards his clients. He’s a good mentor when you have a bunch of questions. Moreover he’s honest, FRIENDLY, practical and his approach towards the case is multidimensional. He’s discussed about the positive and negative outcomes my case upfront; but finally got that COMPLETELY DISMISSED as he’s confident about that from day one. Response times are awesome, just a text away all the time! Definitely recommend for anybody who is looking for the number one lawyer in town! Thank you Mr. Kibria 👍🏻👏🏻read more

    Mr. Kibria is hands down the best lawyer in The District. I came to him concerned about my future and worried that things may never be the same for me. He assured me that my case was not too much to handle and that he would do everything in his power to get me a desirable outcome. Well, Mr. Kibria did EXACTLY as he said and got my case a FULL DISMISSAL!! This outcome had about a 6% chance of happening but Mr. Kibria was able to make it happen. I am now able to keep my future in tact and move on with my life. I was so lucky to have found him for my case. He responds almost immediately, updates you on your case whenever necessary, and is the best lawyer I have ever worked with.read more

    So I had attorney Nabeel represent me for a case I was told nearly impossible to get off from but given my record being clean and my attorneys good standing with the prosecutors he was able to get my case completely dismissed. I don’t expect everyone to have that kind of out come when facing serious charges but if you are…. He is definitely the guy to go to. He was very personable, super responsive at all times of the day, and knew his stuff. I felt very informed the whole time. As my only case ever I felt confident that I had a far chance as a black man. He did an excellent job and I will reach out to him if I ever need anything else in the DMv.read more

    Never been in trouble with the law and had no clue how to navigate the system or even find a trustworthy lawyer.. I felt like a mouse in a sea of snakes. Sure enough, I got bit. Big Time law firm wanted over FIVE TIMES what my case ended up costing me with these guys! I was nieve enough to think it was a deal when they dropped the price a few grand… Stumbled across the website that quickly led to a phone call as well as a good laugh at how much I was overcharged! Saved over $12,000!! Always kept up to date on my case and after. Had to leave a review! Hope this helps someone, God Bless!read more

    We choose him to represent after reading hundreds of other good reviews and everything they say is true. We heard back fast after first reaching out and it was a very easy process after that. It was also very affordable for what we were dealing with. Dealing with a few first time gun felonies (a case of entering DC while following VA’s much more lax gun laws) and it resulted in only 48 hours of community service! This could have ended horribly for our family but thanks to Mr. Kibria, it didn’t. 100% would chose his services again.read more

    Mr. Kibria Nabeel is one awesome lawyer.I contacted him on my sons case which was a very complex hectic case in which all evidence was stacked against my child. My son was looking at years maybe even some decades in jail for a crime that was committed in Washington DC over the Summer of 2020, which happened to involve police, guns and etc.I contacted Mr. Nabeel one late afternoon after talking to several lawyers who wanted thousands of dollars I didn’t have. At the time of the call I was truly at my wits end. I found him through a Google search.He listened to me tell him my sons case, he had a sympathetic ear, he was understanding, and after reviewing the case he accepted it and had several solutions.He was and is a very professional, very understanding person and lawyer. He was able to give me the ins and outs of what can be done and what he will do, he didn’t make any promises but one, and that was, he would do his best to get my child home as soon as possible.Mr. Nabeel did exactly that. He worked his magic!My son is looking at a very reasonable amount of small time compared to what the Public Defender was talking about. I can’t thank Mr. Nabeel enough.Long story short, if you want a great lawyer that won’t rob you blind for money and will work hard to get you the best outcome, then put your trust in Mr. Nabeel.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.read more

    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.read more

    First Time DUI Charges in DC

    Under DC DUI Laws, driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher is illegal. Often the first time someone is charged with a DUI is the first time they’ve driven drunk and been caught. As a result, they may be surprised to learn that there are consequences for their actions – not only to their license but also in terms of criminal penalties if convicted.

    A DUI is a serious crime with real consequences – and without intervention, it can lead to death or disability for others as well as catastrophic disruptions in life. So it’s important to take this crime seriously and use it as a wake-up call that you need help managing your drinking or drug use. With sufficient treatment, you can recover from addiction-related problems and avoid the negative outcomes of addicted behavior.

    If you’ve been arrested for DUI:

    The first thing to do is to schedule a consultation with an experienced lawyer, who will lay out all of your options – including whether you may be able to avoid a conviction by undergoing treatment (for damage control).

    Then the lawyer will help you identify the most appropriate, effective, and cost-efficient program. Next, the lawyer will file a pre-trial motion if the prosecutor doesn’t agree to probation or treatment. Finally, the lawyer will fight hard in court on your behalf if that fails. Often a judge can use their discretion, even on a first offense, and decide whether the penalties for conviction outweigh the consequences for someone who’s never had alcohol or drug problems before. However, it’s important not to rely on a judge in such a decision. You also need to ask yourself how you will stop drinking or using drugs if you avoid the consequences of your behavior.

    If your behavior shows an addiction, take this opportunity to get help. You’ll save yourself a lot of worry and hardship, and you may even be able to keep your license and stay out of jail – thus avoiding the more severe problems that can result from continued alcohol or drug use.

    Penalties for a First-Time DUI Conviction

    First-time DUI offenders face imprisonment of up to 1 year and a fine of up to $2,500. The penalties are significant because the court must consider the usual sanctions and the DUI conviction. They include:

    • A driver’s license suspension for at least six months and up to a year;
    • Loss of driving privileges (if not eligible for a restricted license) for at least one year;
    • A period of probation (includes drug or alcohol counseling and or treatment);
    • Loss of your driver’s license if you’re under 21 at the time of conviction;
    • If spotted driving drunk again, the possibility of having your car impounded.

    First Time DUI Hearings

    Because the charges in this situation are severe, you will be assigned a preliminary hearing. At the preliminary hearing, your lawyer can explain the allegations against you and present evidence to contest the charges. If there is sufficient evidence, you must appear for a full trial before a jury if convicted.

    The good news is that most courts will allow an optional alcohol and drug counseling program as an alternative to jail. The alternative could save you much time – and money – if your lawyer can convince the judge to let you experience treatment instead of jail time. Jail doesn’t solve addiction problems; only after treatment does people usually learn how to manage their drinking or use drugs and stop using them again, which is no longer associated with driving under the influence.

    The occupational license for a first-time conviction is a hardship license or restricted license – you won’t be allowed on the highways or in normal traffic, you may not drive at night, and you must have an ignition interlock.

    How likely is jail time for a first DUI?

    Few traffic prosecutors are willing to go to trial against a first-time offender. You have the goods on the prosecutor. In our office, we have seen cases where the prosecution offered probation before judgment. The first-time DUI can be charged as a class A misdemeanor or a class C felony.

    The penalties are much higher if your blood alcohol concentration is 0.15% or greater – and with a first offense, the maximum prison sentence is one year in jail and $2,500 in fines for every person injured during an accident. Also, you can be charged with DWAI and DUI: First Time DWAI carries similar penalties to DUI (a class C felony).

    First-time DUI and DWAI can also be charged as a single offense, or they can be charged separately, which the DC DMV will treat. Usually, the DMV will allow the suspension of your license or registration to be lifted after a certain period.

    Negotiating DC DUI Cases with Prosecutors

    Few traffic prosecutors are willing to go to trial against a first-time offender. You have the goods on the prosecutor. In our office, we have seen cases where the prosecution offered probation before judgment. The first-time DUI can be charged as a class A misdemeanor or a class C felony.

    The penalties are much higher if your blood alcohol concentration is 0.15% or greater – and with a first offense, the maximum prison sentence is one year in jail and $2,500 in fines for every person injured during an accident.

    First-time DUI and DWAI can also be charged as a single offense, or they can be charged separately, which the DC DMV will treat. Usually, the DMV will allow the suspension of your license or registration to be lifted after a certain period.

    Types of Programs Offered by Alcohol Treatment Providers

    Many programs are available, but you must pick the right one that suits your needs. Your treatment will vary depending on your case and how long you’ve served or left on probation.

    Short-term Programs: These 11 or 12-week programs immediately address your problem. However, they are intensive and require attendance at a minimum of 3 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings per week.

    Medium-term Programs: These 20 to 24 weeks of treatment are to keep you out of jail. It’s usually a more sober lifestyle that’s rewarded with reduced sentences, fines, and fees for those who complete them. You must attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings twice weekly and work with the counselor on an individualized case plan. Use our Criminal Information Center to find alcohol treatment providers that can meet your needs and address your specific case requirements by clicking here.

    Long-term Programs are usually at least 28 weeks and can last up to a year or more. The programs offer the best results for people who have suffered from addiction to alcohol and have experienced severe consequences from their drinking. There are higher success rates for those who complete long-term programs. It would be best if you were willing to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings three times per week and work with your counselor on an individualized plan.

    First Time DUI (or DWAI) cases are handled in various ways, depending on how much time you have left on probation, whether you’ve had past problems with alcohol or drugs, and how many people were injured. Many options should be discussed when you have completed your treatment program.
