Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers In Washington, D.C., With Experience Nationwide

In 2007, Eugene Gorokhov, then a solo practitioner, and Charles Burnham, then a young public defender, collaborated to successfully defend a homeless man charged with trespassing. In 2009, we founded Burnham & Gorokhov, PLLC, with the goal of providing the highest level of representation to the criminally accused.
