Rene Sandler '94 of Sandler Law LLC was named one of Washington's Top 30 "Superstars" Best Lawyers in Washingtonian Magazine. Sandler is the only female criminal defense attorney on this exclusive Top 30 list, the only solo practitioner on the list, and the only criminal defense attorney selected from Montgomery County, MD.
Washingtonian Magazine says, "Sandler is known for taking on challenging cases and throwing her energy into getting the best possible outcome. Last year she represented teenager Patrick Yevsukov, one of two boys accused of plotting an assassination attempt against then presidential candidate Barack Obama. She negotiated immunity from federal prosecutors and got his charges reduced in state court."
"I've always taken on the fight of the underdog," says Sandler. "I like to be creative and crafty in the way I put cases together."
