“Oleg was thorough and professional. He put me at ease and everything he told me turned out to be correct and true. I would recommend Oleg to anyone I know who needs an attorney.”
“Very helpful people. Very understanding and great customer service skills. Would definitely recommend!”
“Oleg Fastovsky is one of the kindest, honest and hard working individuals I have had the pleasure of knowing. Unlike most attorneys, he will spend time explaining all possible outcomes on your case and explain how he will win the case for you. On first meeting Oleg, you might think “this guy is way too nice”. Don’t let his good nature and chiseled abs fool you! This Ukrainian devil will give the prosecutors hell in the courtroom. He will fight until every avenue is exhausted and never give up. But most importantly, he fights for YOU! If you want a bargain bin lawyer who will plea your case out without even speaking to you, good luck! As for me, I’ll take the best criminal defense attorney in town.”

If I had a friend or family member that needed a well-respected attorney I would recommend Oleg Fastovsky to represent them in court.
Oleg is the consummate professional. Knowledgeable, honest, and genuinely invested in getting the best result for his clients. I would recommend him to friends and family in need without hesitation.
I hired Oleg to help me with a DUI I received on my boat in OC, Md. I was impressed with his responsiveness as well as his understanding of the proceedings and charges I was facing. He took the time to explain everything to me and I felt confident from day 1 that he would help assure that I got the best outcome possible. Thanks to Mr. Fastovsky, I walked out of my trial without jail time. I highly recommend him to anyone reading this review and will definitely recommend him to my friends as well. All in all, I was highly impressed.
Mr. Fastovsky did a tremendous job working a complicated traffic court case I had. The violation could have landed me in jail but Mr. Fastovsky’s extensive knowledge of the law helped me to avoid jail time, which I will be forever grateful for. Mr. Fastovsky found a future law that he was able to explain to the judge about that worked in my favor. I would definitely recommend his services in the future. I already recommended him to people I know.
Oleg was helpful and we made it through the process with ease. My case was acquitted and would recommend this firm to anyone that needs a criminal attorney.
I’ve turned to Mr. Fastovsky a couple of times now for help. He is extremely professional and friendly. He’s helped ease my nervousness, and works very hard and gets great results. I’ve had other attorneys in the past, but have never been as happy or confident in them as I’ve been with Mr. Fastovsky.
Mr. Fastovsky was responsive to my calls and emails. Someone rear-ended my car and I suffered injuries. He was able to get a positive outcome for my case, and I am very happy with the results.
Mr. Fastovsky is a class act. He took my case at the very last second and he is very reasonably priced. We literally walked in and walked right back out of the courtroom. I was very ill prepared and was having a horrible week. Any sense of nervousness, I was showing that. He was the voice of reason and worked especially hard for me. Of the literally 10 mins I spent in the court room maybe 2 of those were in front of the judge as they dropped my charges. Be advised this was a serious group of charges I was facing. I could have been jailed for some time for them. I recommend this lawyer to any and everyone. Easy to work with, fairly priced and a gentleman to say the least. Thank you, Mr. Fastovsky.
Oleg’s legal career has led to additional opportunities outside of the Criminal Defense Group. Notably, he is a member of the Maryland Criminal Defense Attorneys Association and the National College for DUI Defense.
