Outstanding Case Results

Acquittal in Complex Fraud Case
Not Guilty
The Defendant was implicated in a complicated investment fraud scheme involving multiple parties. Our legal team meticulously dissected financial transactions and communications, highlighting significant gaps in the prosecution's narrative. Expert witnesses were brought in to challenge the evidence's reliability, undermining the case against Defendant. The jury, persuaded by our comprehensive defense, returned a verdict of not guilty.
DUI Charge Dismissed
The Defendant faced DUI charges after failing a roadside sobriety test. We contested the accuracy and administration of the test, arguing that it was influenced by the Defendant's medical condition, which affected her balance. Further, we questioned the arresting officer's training in conducting such tests. The judge, acknowledging these concerns, dismissed the charges.
Successful Defense in Aggravated Assault Case
Case Dropped
The Defendant was charged with aggravated assault following a neighborhood dispute. Our defense team obtained and analyzed surveillance footage that contradicted the prosecution's account of events. We also brought forward witnesses who testified to the Defendant's character and the context of the altercation. The evidence we presented was compelling enough to have the case dropped before trial.

The Steps in the Criminal Justice Process

Arrest: The process begins when you're arrested for suspicion of committing a crime. You should ask for a lawyer immediately.

Booking: After arrest, you go through the booking process, during which personal information and details about the alleged crime are recorded.

Charging: The state decides what criminal charges to file. This is when having a Baltimore criminal defense lawyer becomes needed.

Arraignment: You appear in court to hear the charges against you and enter a plea. Your lawyer can advise you on the best plea to enter. Remember that you have the right to have a lawyer present.

Plea bargaining: A plea deal may be negotiated before trial. Your attorney can negotiate terms that may benefit you.

Trial: If no plea deal is reached, your case goes to trial, where evidence is presented to a judge or jury.

Sentencing: If convicted, the judge will decide your sentence. Your lawyer can argue for a lighter sentence based on various factors.

We Tailor Defense Strategies for Each Client

Knowing each case is unique, we customize our defense strategies to fit our client's specific circumstances and needs. We dive deep into the details of each case, leveraging our knowledge of Baltimore criminal law to find the best approach.

Whether it's challenging the evidence or highlighting inconsistencies in the prosecution's case, we are always looking for the edge that will benefit you.

Our commitment to our clients goes beyond the courtroom. We provide support and guidance throughout the entire legal process, ensuring you're informed and prepared every step of the way. We aim to defend you against the charges and alleviate the stress and uncertainty of facing the criminal justice system.

We Can Negotiate a Favorable Plea Deal

Negotiating a plea deal is an art that requires experience, skill, and a deep understanding of the legal system. Our Baltimore criminal defense lawyers excel in this area, often securing favorable deals that reduce the charges or penalties our clients face. We assess every option carefully, ensuring that any agreement is in your best interest.

Our approach to plea negotiations is strategic and informed by years of experience. We know when to push for a better deal and when to advise our clients to accept an offer. Our priority is always to achieve the best possible outcome for you, minimizing the impact of the charges on your life.

We File Motions To Suppress Illegal Evidence

One of the most effective tools in our arsenal is the motion to suppress illegally obtained evidence. We meticulously review the details of your case, looking for violations of your rights or procedural errors. If we find that evidence was collected unlawfully, we aggressively argue to have it excluded from your case.

This strategy can considerably weaken the prosecution's case, sometimes leading to charges being dropped or reduced. Our experience in identifying and challenging illegal evidence is a key component of our defense services, providing you with a strong advocate in your corner.

We Represent You at Sentencing

Having a skilled Baltimore criminal defense lawyer by your side is critical if your case goes to sentencing. We present a comprehensive argument on your behalf, focusing on factors that could lead to a more lenient sentence. Our representation includes highlighting mitigating factors and countering any aggravating factors presented by the prosecution.

Our goal during sentencing is to minimize the penalties and protect your future. We understand the stakes and work tirelessly to ensure that the sentence reflects the nuances of your case and your personal circumstances.

We Represent You at Sentencing

Prior convictions: If you have a history of criminal convictions, the court may consider this as an aggravating factor. We work to contextualize any past offenses to mitigate their impact.

Use of a weapon: Using a weapon during the commission of a crime can lead to harsher penalties. Our defense challenges the relevance and circumstances of the weapon's presence.

Victim vulnerability: The court may impose stricter penalties if the victim is particularly vulnerable due to age, disability, or other factors. We seek to present context and argue against undue harshness in sentencing.

Lack of remorse: Demonstrating a lack of remorse or accountability can be seen as an aggravating factor. Our team prepares you to show sincere remorse and responsibility, which can influence the court's perception positively.

Mitigating Factors

First-time offender: If this is your first offense, we emphasize this to argue for leniency. The court often views first-time offenders more favorably.

Cooperation with law enforcement: Demonstrating that you cooperated with the police can serve as a mitigating factor. We highlight your cooperation in advocating for a reduced sentence.

Personal circumstances: If personal circumstances such as addiction, mental health issues, or financial hardship contributed to the offense, we argue these as mitigating factors. We emphasize the need for support and rehabilitation over punishment.

Positive social contributions: Evidence of your positive contributions to the community, such as volunteer work or supporting a family, can be influential. We comprehensively view your character and contributions to argue for leniency.
