About Me

Kurt Nachtman is known as a determined and hard-nosed attorney, whether representing a District Court Defendant or a multi-million dollar business. Approximately 40% of his practice consists of criminal defense and 60% deals in representing small and medium sized business matters. He is a member of the bar for the State of Maryland, the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He practices in Harford, Baltimore City & County, and the North and Eastern Shore of Maryland.  As a former prosecutor and while in private practice, Mr. Nachtman conducted numerous investigations into such crimes as vehicular homicide, public corruption, weapons, and human trafficking. He litigated several hundred Judge and jury trials, ranging from violent crimes to traffic cases.

At the end of his tenure as a Baltimore lawyer in the Office of the State’s Attorney for Baltimore City, Mr. Nachtman handled white-collar crime cases. This included crimes such as theft schemes (including motor-vehicle-title fraud, vehicle identification number replating and towing schemes), identity fraud, check kiting and fencing, and confidence schemes. As an attorney he is not only a proven litigator, but also an outstanding investigator.
