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.
