I hired Mr. Kibria to represent me in what I thought were pretty unfair charges to begin with. He agreed and said he would work to get the charges dismissed. He did exactly that right away. Charges dismissed completely. I spent less then an hour in court for it too. He is a fantastic lawyer. He was super accessible and extremely responsive and cordial to all my requests and questions. If you need a defense attorney in DC, Mr. Kibria is the man to hire. Highly recommended! View on AVVO

Amazing Washington DC Defense Attorney
I had a great experience with Mr. Kibria and I would hire him again. I recommend Mr. Kibria to anyone in the DC area. He was very helpful and informative and always responsive right away to my calls and texts. I was really appreciative of that as a lot of times it takes a while for attorneys to get back to you. Mr. Kibria met with me the same day I called and was able to walk me through the process during a free consultation face to face in his office. Also, he gave me a very affordable rate compared to many other attorneys in the area. If you receive a traffic ticket of any kind, make sure to call Mr. Kibria as you won't be disappointed with the service you receive. View on AVVO

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
