***Incredible Attorney***
Richard is a true blessing to our family. I was referred to Richard on a Sunday morning, and he agreed to meet with me that same evening at 7pm, and represented my son at a court hearing the next morning, which was New Year's Eve. There are few attorney's left that genuinely care about their clients. Richard has over 50 years of experience as a prosecutor and attorney. He knows the legal system, and will protect your rights and fight for victory in your case. My son was released on personal recognizance after facing huge penalties, bond and jail time in Baltimore County, Maryland. Richard promised and delivered exactly as expected. He went above and beyond to assist, and was available anytime. You are a rare gem Richard! We appreciate you more than you know.

Best Criminal Defense Lawyer!!!!!!
Mr. Arnold was able to get my case for assault expunged after my probation was finished. He really knows how to talk to the DA and Judge. Also handled a DWI which he got dropped due to a technicality on the part of the arresting officers!!
