Protecting Your Rights in the Criminal Justice System

Whether you are under investigation, have been charged with a crime, or need assistance after a conviction, it is important to know that you can trust your lawyer to guide you through the complex legal system.

At Hepworth, Pendry and Katkish, we are passionate about protecting clients at every stage of the criminal defense process. With over 30 years of experience, we bring a broad perspective and practical knowledge to every case.

Dedicated Criminal Defense Practice

We take the time to thoroughly explore all aspects of your case. This allows us to not only meet your legal needs, but also to position you for success post-sentencing.

Our practice includes:

  • Sentencing practice - We work to convince judges to hand down sentences that are geared towards rehabilitation rather than punishment. Our focus is always on giving our clients a more positive future.
  • Sentencing consulting services - We offer our experience, knowledge and guidance to other attorneys in the Washington Metro area. If you are struggling with a case, we will provide the assistance that could make the difference for your client.
  • Criminal trial practice — We advocate for our clients at every stage of the criminal trial process. Whether you are a "person of interest" in an investigation or you have been charged with a crime, we will zealously protect your interests.
  • Appeals & post-conviction issues — If you have been convicted of a crime, it is easy to feel hopeless. We will help you understand your options regarding an appeal or post-conviction motion to protect your freedom.

We are focused entirely on doing what is best for our clients. Call 202-220-3025 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation at our Washington, D.C. or Bethesda, Maryland, offices.
