When you are seeking a skilled trial lawyer in Virginia, Maryland, DC or New Jersey to defend you against a computer crime charge, you not only want a skilled criminal lawyer, but ideally you want a criminal lawyer who truly understands the technology behind the charges. You find both in Mr. Sris. There are very few lawyers who have the legal background and the technological background as Mr. Sris. Don’t take our word for it. Look around.

Recently, he assisted in writing the legislation for the Tamil New Year, Indian Heritage Month, Indian Tamil New Year and the re-naming of a street with a Tamil name (Valluvar Way) in Fairfax, Virginia.
