I am David Benowitz, a criminal defense attorney in Washington, DC and also a faculty member at Harvard Law School's Trial Advocacy Workshop. Ask Me Anything!
After I graduated law school, I began my career as a public defender in Washington, DC. I worked as a public defender for a number of years before co-founding a private law firm, Price Benowitz LLP, in 2003. The firm originally began as a two attorney operation and has now expanded to approximately 30 attorneys.
I currently head the firm's White Collar Defense Practice Group and am barred to practice in DC, Maryland, and federal courts. I've handled a variety of interesting and complex criminal cases in my twenty year career.
Ask me about my experiences and I'll answer what I can.
