The rights of an accused person in a criminal trial can be highly prejudiced if that person does not have an experienced criminal lawyer defending the case. That may even be truer if the person is accused of a violent crime, which often carries a minimum mandatory sentence. That same situation can occur anywhere in the United States, including in Maryland.
Violent crimes, such as armed robbery, murder or attempted murder, assault including aggravated assault and battery, arson and vehicular manslaughter are serious crimes. We are a firm of experienced lawyers who defend people who have been accused of both violent misdemeanors and felonies.
If you are being investigated or have been arrested for committing a violent crime, it is probably safest to have a lawyer by your side when you speak with the police. Whatever you say after your arrest or during the investigation can be used against you during a trial. It is the right of the accused person to consult a lawyer before responding to any question that is asked.
Consulting a criminal defense lawyer before facing a criminal trial or accepting a plea bargain will help you understand the available options. A lawyer will prepare a viable defense strategy for you prior to the trial and help you choose your best option.
We work with experienced lawyers who are well versed in the techniques that are used by the state in court during a trial on charges alleging a violent crime. The defense strategy that our lawyers will prepare will aim to counter the strategies of the prosecution in your case.
If you have been accused of or arrested for a violent crime, you can exercise your right to consult a criminal defense lawyer. You may find the support very helpful.
