Do I Need a Lawyer?
When facing criminal charges, you have the right to defend yourself, and the best way to do that is to hire a professional lawyer who has the experience, knowledge, and skills necessary to protect your rights and advocate for the optimal outcome to your case.
Often, people are hesitant to hire a lawyer when questioned by police. They feel that hiring an attorney may make them look guilty or appear as if they have something to hide. However, it is important to remember that it is your right to have attorney representation, and a Rockville criminal attorney can help prevent abuses of your rights and prevent your words from being manipulated and used against you.
As you stand before the court, having an experienced legal advocate on your side can give you peace of mind as well as an arsenal of defense strategies to protect against criminal charges.
Criminal Defense Practice Areas
The Maryland Code classifies crimes as either felonies or misdemeanors. In many states, felony convictions are those punishable by a year or more in prison, and misdemeanor convictions are those punishable by a year or less in county jail. Maryland, however, does not classify felonies and misdemeanors in this way, and even a misdemeanor charge can be punishable by up to ten years in prison. Thus, it can be a mistake to take even misdemeanor charges lightly.
Some common cases our Rockville defense attorneys handle frequently include:
- DUI and DWI
- Traffic Violations
- Shoplifting, Burglary, and Theft
- Assault and Domestic Violence
- Weapon and Gun Charges
- Sex Crimes Allegations
- Drug Charges
- Federal Crimes
Our lawyers have the resources of a well-funded, private law firm to bring to bear on our clients’ cases. This means that we have private investigators on-call to gather evidence and conduct an independent inquiry into the details of your case. Choosing to work with a private defense attorney also means that you’re signing on with someone who is not as bogged down with cases as many public defenders tend to be.
