How We Can Help You

The state of Maryland aims to hold criminal offenders accountable to the fullest extent of the law. Our firm has what it takes to help all those who are at risk of facing years in jail, thousands of dollars in fines, and other significant penalties. Some of the many criminal offenses that our Maryland criminal defense attorney has experience handling include the following:

Domestic Violence

There are few charges more damaging to a record and to a reputation than those involving domestic violence. Unfortunately, many individuals are wrongly or unfairly charged with domestic violence every single day. Not only can domestic violence charges bring about civil and criminal consequences, but they can also directly impact your child custody agreement if you are a divorced parent. For this very reason, our firm is here to defend you and your family.

Drug Crimes

Drug crimes are among the most common crimes that our firm is called on to defend. Of course, the consequences of any drug crime involve both the nature of the alleged crime (possession, intent to sell, drug trafficking, etc.) as well as the amount of the drug the individual was allegedly caught with. No matter the severity of your case, if you are facing drug charges in the state of Maryland, our Maryland criminal defense attorney is here to help.


Though we all know that it is both illegal and dangerous to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, many people still make the mistake of doing so. However, we understand that making such a mistake does not make you a bad person, though you should be prepared for Maryland courts to treat you as such. Our firm has extensive experience helping individuals fight DUI/DWI charges, and we are ready to put that experience to work for you as well.

Juvenile Matters

Nobody wants to imagine their child being charged with a criminal offense. Unfortunately, this is the reality for many parents throughout the state of Maryland, and if you find yourself in this situation, you absolutely must retain the services of an experienced Maryland criminal defense attorney who can work to fight those charges on behalf of your child to help ensure your child has a shot at a safe, free, and productive future with a clean record.

Sex Crimes

Sex crimes are among the most heinous crimes that a court can charge an individual with, and if you are convicted of a sex crime, you can expect that your life will be virtually turned upside down. Not only will you receive a criminal record, but you will also most likely face serious jail time, have to pay high fines, and you may even have to register as a sex offender, which will ensure that whenever you move, wherever you go, all those who live in the area will be notified. Our firm can work to fight the shameful, degrading nature of such a label by defending you through every step of the process ahead.


Whether you are facing petty theft or felony theft charges, you need a seasoned criminal defense attorney who has the knowledge and skill required to effectively combat those charges. Our firm has experience handling a wide array of theft charges ranging from robbery or burglary to shoplifting, embezzlement, and all other theft-related charges in between. The consequences you may face largely depend on the value of what was stolen, as well as the nature of the crime, which is why you need a criminal defense attorney who can assess all elements of your case, and from there, work to determine the best defense strategy going forward.

Violent Crimes

The phrase, “violent crime” is a blanket term that covers a vast range of offenses that involve the use of violence or force. Violent crimes are, in many cases, felony charges, and they generally come with years of incarceration, hefty fines, and a criminal record that will follow someone for the rest of their life. Obtaining a criminal record can prevent someone from living in certain places, getting certain jobs, and even securing certain loans. We are here to help fight any violent charges you may face.

Gun Crimes

Maryland’s gun laws are quite complex, which is why if you are facing charges for a gun crime in the state of Maryland, you need a criminal defense attorney who understands the ins and outs of those laws. Our firm values the Second Amendment, just as you do, and if you are charged with a gun crime, we will be your staunch defender through every step of the legal process ahead.
