Client/Interest Role/Interest Issue/Matter Dates
Daron Barnes Counsel United States v. Daron Barnes, 2013 CF2 10336, Superior Court of the District of Columbia. I represented Mr. Barnes pro bono through the successful resolution of a dispositive pretrial motion to suppress evidence. The litigation arose from a warrantless pursuit of my client into his home and a subsequent warrantless search of the home. January 2015 - June 2015
Shawn Bolden Counsel United States v. Shawn Bolden, 2014 CF2 12471, Superior Court of the District of Columbia. I represented Mr. Bolden pro bono through the resolution of his case. I filed pretrial briefs on his behalf challenging the approximately nine-year delay in bringing him to trial, asserting that this delay violated the Sixth Amendment, the Due Process Clause, and the Interstate Agreement on Detainers. January 2015 - January 2015
Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia Counsel As a Staff Attorney in the Trial Division of the D.C. Public Defender Service, I represented approximately 125 individuals accused of criminal misconduct in D.C. Superior Court. The range of representation encompassed all pretrial litigation and investigation, plea negotiation and advice, trial litigation, and sentencing representation. Occasionally, I represented clients in ancillary matters as well, such as administrative educational hearings, parole board hearings, and civil protection order hearings. Allegations against my clients ranged from misdemeanors to homicides and issues on which I worked generally ran the full spectrum of issues implicated in criminal defense litigation. Beyond my trial work, I also led training sessions for local judges, local defense counsel, and other Public Defender Service attorneys, and occasionally consulted on appeals and special litigation projects. October 2011 - December 2014
