Representing adults and juveniles accused of committing crimes in Maryland and Washington, D.C.

If you have been accused of committing a crime or believe you will be accused of committing a crime, you should consult a lawyer. Lawyers practicing criminal defense protect their clients’ interests in a variety of ways. Lawyers communicate with police and prosecutors and eliminate the chances that a client will accidentally make admissions that harm him or her. Even innocent clients can inadvertently harm themselves by making statements to the police. Lawyers understand the law and explain how the law works to clients. Lawyers also explain to clients how the law applies to their case specifically. Most importantly, lawyers protect a client’s rights throughout a criminal prosecution. This may include motions to review bail, quash an outstanding warrant, motions to suppress evidence, competent trial skills and post conviction motions, among other things. It also may include a lawyer’s best advice regarding a plea bargain. If you have been accused of committing a crime of believe you will be, contact me using the form below.
