A Long History of Success in Criminal Defense Law My trial experience is extensive. I am in court in front of judges and juries almost every day of my working life.

Our Maryland criminal lawyers provide high-quality, aggressive legal services for our clients. The defense attorneys in my firm are dedicated and highly experienced trial lawyers who are trusted members of the Maryland Bar and the Federal Bar.Criminal defense is about more than knowing the law; it's also about understanding people.
