I bring more than 30 years of experience to the job of defending people accused of criminal charges ranging from federal and state Internet child pornography to sex crimes and serious traffic offenses. I am known as an aggressive and hard-hitting criminal defense lawyer who will fight hard to keep your record as clean as possible and to minimize the effect of an arrest on your life.
I offer my clients more than 30 years of experience defending people against serious criminal accusations such as federal and state Internet child pornography, sexual solicitation of a minor, all sexual offenses, prostitution, rape, assault and battery, and all traffic matters. Recognized as an effective, hardworking criminal defense lawyer, I handle more than 750 criminal cases each year, and have developed professional relationships with state attorneys, judges and prosecutors in Baltimore and throughout Maryland. These channels of communication allow me to advocate efficiently on behalf of defendants in a wide range of criminal cases, including both federal and state Internet child pornography cases.
