The Law Offices of Charles R. Haskell is a full-service criminal defense law practice located in downtown Washington, D.C..

We specialize in criminal defense and are licensed to practice law in both D.C. Superior Court and the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, among other U.S. jurisdictions.


We provide aggressive representation to people who have been charged with a crime in D.C. Superior Court, the D.C. Federal Court, or within other jurisdictions in which we are licensed to practice.


Our DUI & DWI criminal defense practice ranks among the best for its quality and creativity in developing a winning defense theory. We have received specific DWI/DUI training from top defense organizations across the country and have represented hundreds of clients who were charged with these crimes.


We have litigation experience ranging from capital murder to serious criminal traffic charges and have tried many cases to verdict.


We also represent clients who are facing civil disputes. Our litigation team will assist you in handling these matters effectively and quickly.

Our experience in litigating both criminal and civil law matters is extremely beneficial when representing clients facing all sorts of legal problems. Frequently, clients are charged with criminal charges while simultaneously subjected to civil complaints or proceedings within the same jurisdiction. As a criminal defense attorney with family law and administrative law litigation experience, I can effectively advise clients on how to manage and protect their rights in both criminal and civil litigation proceedings.





One of the most vulnerable experiences that a person can have is being charged with a crime. No matter the accusation, the strength of the evidence, or the punishment you're facing, it's a frightening thing to endure.

The unfortunate reality is that it can happen to anyone. And the worst thing you can do is attempt to go it alone.

As a trained and experienced criminal defense attorney I can help you through this difficult time. Over the years I have represented hundreds of clients in your exact position and I understand the overwhelming stress that you are facing.


Have you been notified by law enforcement that you are under investigation?

If so, it is important to understand your rights and how to protect yourself and your loved ones through this difficult period.
