Criminal Defense Attorney
David Wooten


Criminal Defense lawyer David Wooten practices in both Maryland and the District of Columbia, representing clients in all types of criminal and serious traffic cases. His experience ranges from federal drug trafficking to first degree murder, with jury trial experience including: Murder, Attempted MurderRapeRobbery, Sexual Abuse, and Felony Assault.

Mr. Wooten’s ability to convince juries to say "Not Guilty" spans many jurisdictions:

2024    Anne Arundel: Sexual Abuse of a Minor

2024    Montgomery: Domestic Violence Assault

2022     Frederick: Sexual Assault

2022     DC Superior Court: Assault with a Dangerous Weapon

Not all cases are won with juries. Mr. Wooten also knows how to convince judges to suppress illegally obtained evidence in felony drug cases, where the suppression ruling results in dismissal of all charges. One case involved suppression of 15 grams of cocaine, in a bag that was sticking out of the Defendant's pants. Another case involved an alleged confession that cocaine was hidden inside a wall, where a judge found the defendant's denial more credible than the Detective's story. Yet another case involved an illegal traffic stop that recovered a backpack full of $14,000 cash and 2 pounds of marijuana.

In 2017 Mr. Wooten achieved success for a client in one of the highest profile cases in Montgomery County in decades - in the "Rockville High School Rape" case - guiding his client through a maelstrom of national media attention, including pejorative comments about his client from White House spokesman, Sean Spicer. Contrary to all expectations and hype, all rape and sex offense charges against Mr. Wooten’s client were dismissed. (See Fox News Article).

As a criminal defense attorney, Mr. Wooten often finds himself in the middle of heated domestic violence cases. When a marriage falls apart and physical violence is alleged, divorce, alimony, and custody proceedings can be influenced by criminal charges. For example, Attorney Wooten won two consecutive protective orders against the same scorned wife. She was determined to violate her husband's probation, in an attempt to put him in jail and win custody of their two sons.

Mr. Wooten speaks fluent Spanish. He lived in Ecuador for two years as a United States Peace Corps Volunteer. As a youth, he traveled the world playing competitive soccer. In college, he was granted a highly selective scholarship to live in Southeast Asia and work for the National Human Rights Commission of Thailand. Attorney Wooten's multi-cultural life experience aids and informs his practice of law. Every client's needs are unique. The decisions a person makes, and the challenges he or she faces, are strongly influenced by their background and upbringing. Mr. Wooten knows how to paint the right picture for judges and juries, using his client's background as a strength.

Attorney David Wooten

"My brother in law found this place after we were served with court orders based on completely baseless and untruthful claims against us and as such, we lost in our first court hearing since we did not know how to go about handling the ins and outs at court hearings. With our attorney, Mr. David Wooten's assistance, we were able to score a victory in our second hearing as well as in my follow-up appeal case. Mr. Wooten was not only friendly and knowledgeable, he was also professional who patiently explained to us the entire process, as well as all details relevant to our cases and provided absolutely effective questions in court. The fees we paid were very reasonable. Definitely a GREAT value too! If necessary in the future, I will WITHOUT A DOUBT go to Mr. Wooten at the Law Offices of Jezic & Moyse, LLC again.
