Defense Against Criminal Charges in the Baltimore Area

Criminal charges are serious, and you need to take them seriously. No criminal charge is minor. With any charge, you could be facing jail time, fines and other penalties. Depending on the crime you have been arrested for, the resulting record can also have an effect on your future employment opportunities.

I am Charles L. Waechter, a criminal defense lawyer with more than 40 years of experience defending clients in Baltimore County. I have the knowledge, resources and skills to defend you from your charges. Contact me for a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
