Criminal law

Representation in criminal prosecutions throughout Maryland

Criminal prosecutions begin long before the trial.  Police investigate crime and make arrests.  Prosecutors conduct investigations and call witnesses to testify before grand juries.  Whenever you are questioned in connection with criminal activity, your freedom and liberty are in jeopardy.  Statements you make to authorities before an arrest is made or charges are issued may determine the course and outcome of the whole case.  Skilled and experienced criminal defense attorneys can help you decide when to cooperate with authorities and when to exercise your right to remain silent.
