Not Guilty all 94 counts!
I had a 2 day specially set trial with lots of witnesses against me including cops and experts. Robin cross examined them all to the nth degree and did a great job putting on our defense case. He charmed everybody including the Judge. He result was that I was found Not Guilty of all 94 counts. My wife couldn’t believe it!

Not Guilty All Counts!
After a few of my friends told me they were found “Not Guilty” with Robin as their lawyer, I hired him. The jury came back with a “Not Guilty,” for me too. Robin charmed that jury like nobody’s business. I could tell they all liked him.

NOT GUiILTY of Attempted Murder
Everybody, including the media, said I could not win. But my Attorney had the jury smiling in agreement. He brought out all the intense emotions in the case. The prosecutor was shocked when the jury said, "Not Guilty," of attempted first degree murder, "Not Guilty of attempted second degree murder, "Not Guilty," of first degree assault, and "Not Guilty," of carrying a dangerous and deadly weapon with intent to injure. Robin Ficker saved my life!

Not Guilty on all counts!
We went to trial in Cumberland Circuit Court. My friends were worried because they thought I couldn't win, and because I was on probation and had a baby on the way. Not only did I escape a felony conviction, but the Judge found me Not Guilty on all counts. My Attorney, Robin Ficker, was strong, tough and smart. He ran circles around the experienced prosecutor. I can't tell you how happy I am that we won this case!

Ficker went after the liar who assaulted me, but who said I assaulted him and we WON!
I was assaulted by a stranger who spit on me and broke my arm. Then he filed assault charges and sought a protective order against me! My attorney Robin Ficker was stronger than that liar and his attorney put together! Ficker wouldn't settle and as a result my attacker was convicted of assault after a trial and I was awarded a protective order. The charges against me were dropped and the protective order sought against me was defeated after a trial. Ficker is aggressive and brilliant. I can't thank him enough!

The Jury said NOT GUILTY All 23 Times in My Attempted First Degree Murder, Armed Carjacking Case thanks to Robin Ficker!
The best plea offer the prosecutor gave me was 25 years. When we lost the photo array Motions Hearing, he offered 40 years. But Robin Ficker poked holes in every state expert witness on DNA, fingerprints and GPS. He had the Jury nodding in agreement for three days and then even laughing and applauding in closing argument. He pointed out many, "dogs that did not bark," in the prosecutors' case. We had only my fiance, grandmom and her friend as character witnesses. Robin Ficker saved my life and I was found NOT GUILTY 23 times for charges I did not commit!

Ficker overwhelmed the local school board which had labeled my 5 year old a terroristic threat!
My local school had suspended my daughter for making a terroristic threat. She was just talking about a Hello Kitty Bubble Gun which shoots bubbles. Robin Ficker got the case on Good Morning America and Fox News. The school board got thousands of email and comments. The record was expunged. Robin Ficker, the professional, made them all lookl like amateurs.

Great Lawyer The Principal Wouldn't Even Talk to Me and He Got the Record Expunged
My son was suspended from school for pointing his finger at another student. The principal said, "he threatened to harm himself or another student." Then the principal wouldn't even talk to me about the suspension. I called Mr. Ficker who carried the ball like Eric Dickerson, got my son's suspension record expunged! The Washington Post even wrote two stories about the case. Ficker always show up and meets deadlines!

Not Guilty All Counts After 10 months in Jail! Thanks Robin Ficker!
The jury came back with a Not Guilty on all 4 counts, including 2nd degree Rape. I had been held for 10 months in jail for a crime I did not commit. Robin got ahold of all the hundreds of text messages she had sent me, which showed I had done nothing wrong. This man is a genius. I can't thank him enough!

Caring, Sensitive and Knowledgeable - Always Client First!
I met him at a McDonalds in Bethesda. He was amazing. Really knew the menu. He gave me a choice. I could buy a number 3 or use the same money for my legal fees. Of couse I opted to forgo lunch. In court it was more amazing. He showed up around 3 and took charge. Even though he had no idea who I was or anything about my case; he paced up and down the courtroom with an empty folder with my name on it. I said "Robin" and got his attention. After that it was pure magic. I pled guilty to everything. But it was good for me after all I was guilty and this was my 5th DUI. A year in jail, lost my job, the house and the wife. Like a country song. Thank you Robin.

He talked and I walked out of the court room happy!
Ficker has represented me in four differend driving while suspended cases and I have walked out of the court room all four times without a conviction. He knows what judges to avoid and seeks out the best ones for his client. WOW!

Maryland's Best Attorney
Very responsive. My case was a blood test case. He told me the state will not be ready, but we shall be. He was right! The state could not make the blood test after he made them jump through all the hoops and dot their i's and cross their t's. My case was thrown out and I had thought I would go to jail. Why would anyone think of going to Court by herself without a good attorney like Ficker?

Mistrial in double manslaughter trial!
I was charged with double manslaughter when my car went off the road. Unfortunately, two people were killed. The States Attorney made me a top priority and the public defender said I could not win and wanted me to plead guilty with a ten year cap. But Robin Ficker convinced the jury to hang 6-6! I can't thank him enough!

He is the BEST!
Thanks again. I will do nothing but recommend you to any and everyone in need of representation. You came and you conquered. You are the BEST! Thanks again Robin! I'm a FICKER PICKER!

My manslaughter case was dropped because Ficker was so thorough and clever!
I was charged with manslaughter because my best friend died of an overdose. Ficker outsmarted the prosecutor and had the Judge shaking his head in agreement every time Robin argued against the state. I had a high bond and couldn;t get out of jail until the trial date. But then Robin got me out because he ran rings around the prosecutor, making it seem like they had no case against me at all. Ficker is an original thinker and comes up with ideas nobody else does. He is the antidote to small town prosecutors and local bias. I can't see how he could have done a better job for me and can't thank him enough. He always took my calls himself!

He knows every little detail and all the ins and outs of the Court House.
Inexpensive, very friendly, and knowledgeable. I was very worried. He was not, and he was right, thank goodness. I would never go into court without him because he is so experienced.

Very Rude and Unprofessional to Client
Mr. Ficker was very unprofessional when he was talking to me. On more than one occasion he was very rude and sarcastic to me during our conversations. My husband had to intervene in one of the conversations and ask him not to shout at me. He also told me on two occasions that he had filed a motion for my son who I has hired him to help and he didn't actually filed the motion until two days later. His delays in filing these motions caused my son to be delayed in his release from prison.
