Being charged with a crime in Maryland starts a complex legal process that will crush you if you do not get help. Anyone charged with a crime needs an attorney. If you need a criminal defense attorney, contact us to set up a free consultation.
However, FIRST you should also get some idea of the process you face, and the possible consequences. We wrote the Free Legal Consumer Guide on criminal law so you can discover the answers to your legal questions today. If you are facing criminal charges, things you do right now will affect your legal case later. You should be informed and know your options before you make decisions.
Our Free Legal Consumer Guide will explain what you need to know now. This is really two guides in one. The first section explains the criminal law process, and the second one explains what your rights are if you are charged with a crime in Maryland. But this article can only provide general advice. The best answers depend on the type of crime you were charged with, the circumstances surrounding it, the county you are in, etc. Only a criminal law attorney who understands the criminal law process, and knows how to make it work, can really tell you what to expect in your particular case. This is one area of the law you do not handle on your own.
We provide a free consultation with a criminal law attorney to anyone charged with a crime. You should take advantage of that free consultation immediately. Call us, or another experienced criminal law attorney, sooner rather than later. Here are things you can expect to happen, and what each step in the process means to you.
Our Best Advice – This guide contains general information about Maryland law. Simply reading it does not create an attorney-client relationship, and does not turn you into a lawyer (thank goodness!). If you have a serious legal issue, you should get personal advice from an attorney who understands the unique facts of your situation. That is the best advice we can ever give you.
