We have been handling criminal law cases in Waldorf, Lexington Park, and all of Southern Maryland for 50 years. We want to help you with your criminal defense case too.

bbb-accredited-a-plus-smallWe are truly local criminal defense lawyers - serving clients in Charles County, St. Mary’s County, Calvert County and Prince George’s County. We know the local court systems in La Plata, Leonardtown, Prince Frederick, and Upper Marlboro. We don’t drive down to Southern Maryland to handle occasional cases. We live here.

If you meet with us for your criminal case, we will assess your case, explain the law, and give you options to choose. There are always options in any type of criminal case. You should know each one, and be able to choose the option that is right for you and your family.
