I am known as an aggressive and hard-hitting criminal defense lawyer who will fight hard to keep your record as clean as possible and to minimize the effect of an arrest on your life.

A Serious Lawyer for Serious Charges

I have the experience and knowledge to defend you against the most serious criminal charges such as:

If I represent you, I will review the documents pertaining to the criminal charge, investigate the circumstances of your arrest and determine if any evidence should be suppressed. For example, if the police violated your Fourth Amendment constitutional rights against unreasonable search and seizure, I will seek to have the charges dismissed. In all sex crime cases, I work hard to protect my clients from sex offender registration requirements.

With offices in Baltimore, Annapolis, Ocean City and Bel Air, and South Florida, I offer five convenient locations for people who are charged with crimes in Maryland and Florida. Many of my clients come from throughout the state of Maryland and beyond, as well as South Florida.

No matter what type of law you are accused of violating and what kind of charges you face, I offer a free initial consultation by phone or in one of my offices. If you are incarcerated, I can also meet with you in jail.
