Outstanding Representation!
Maryland's best Attorney Tom Maronick was hired to represent my son who was facing 10 to 15 years for 4 felony and 4 misdemeanor charges. Tom from the very beginning did an outstanding job. He took the time to Consult with my son on several Occasions while he was in jail which help him and our family get thru this very difficult time in our lives. Two weeks before Trial Tom was able get a very Favorable Plea deal which removed 4 felony charges and 2 Misdemeanor's. Our family would like to Thank Tom Maronick for the superb Representation he provided for our Son! Sincerely Jeff H.

Knowledgable and confident about the outcome of my civil case
I consulted with this attorney, and although I don't think I am the right fit as a client of their firm, I do think I would've came out on top with this gentleman in my corner. We talked for a little over 34 minutes and in that time he shared valuable knowledge about how we could go about this, what the possible outcomes could be, what to expect price wise, and even strategy wise in regards to meeting with his team. He also seemed very upbeat and on the ball with getting all of the relevant information and determining how to utilize it in the most effective ways. I thank you for your time and the service you are providing to our community. He also talked about how their firm is asked by the Bar association to donate and how they attend some government officials yearly parties and such, meaning they are also well connected with these people and work with them regularly. The only reason I couldn't go with this guy (although I wanted to) was the price - and I'm not saying him and his firm aren't worth it, I truly believe they are, but as a ~21 year old (staying vague for privacy) saving up for a car the price he told me was 1/4 of what I received from insurance for my totaled vehicle, and I just couldn't at this time justify that purchase in my head when I am needing other, tangible assets at this time. I was frank with him and more or less told him this, and he tried to assure me it was worth it to not risk losing my freedoms or having this backfire, which I don't disagree with, but again, I can't justify that spending on a single day in court for something I didn't even do... Thanks again to Thomas for teaching out, not only once, but twice after I missed his call and couldn't catch him when I returned it. Maybe someday in the future when I am more financially stable I will utilize your services to the fullest!

DUI Attorney
I retained Maronick Law for a first-time DUI case in Ocean City Maryland. The team at Maronick told me exactly what to do, exactly what to expect, provided various payment options, and made it very clear my options and potential outcomes. My results were very typical for a first time DUI in the state of MD and I was very relieved when it was over. *** NOTE *** If this is your first time, be prepared that you really don't communicate with your lawyer a lot - and you'll do some of your own leg work. You'll get emails and instructions from other ppl at the firm telling you what to do - but you'll only speak directly with your lawyer 2 or 3 total times through the process.

DUI cases
Was very professional in what they did; however, I had to contact them multiple times with questions that were unanswered. He responded quickly to my inquiries an has the knowledge to handle harder cases. After trial stayed to make sure everything was sorted out to my liking and made sure everything went as smoothly as possible.

Tough Case Great Lawyer
I was in a desperate situation and on paper my case looked terrible. I stood to loose my job and much more. Tom Maronick and his team worked incredible hard to get an outcome that both saved my job as well as received a sentencing that allowed me to continue working. Tom was courteous and would regularly call to explain matters with regards to the case. I would recommend Maronick Law to anyone who was in a similar situation.

Wonderful Anthony.
The firm and the entire staff are wonderful team. My experienced with the firm since the beginning of my case till the end was awesome, I never regret of engaging them as my Anthony. For more than a year of my case they never take my case for granted and their representative in court’ in person of Anthony Anson was a young and such a brilliant lawyer. He did an excellent job.

Tom the MAN!
Maronick Law Firm is the way to go, Tom is the man you want standing besides you once your name is called off that dockett. Busy man don’t get me wrong so it’ll be hard to get in touch with him at times, however his associates in office always directed me in the best ways possible when I couldn’t get in touch with Tom himself. Extremely satisfied beyond belief in regards to the conclusion of my trial, as if Tom had a pair of wings under his suit jacket and a halo over his head. If it’s within your budget, and it is over something serious like my case was, Maronick is the guy you need. Blessings Tom, thanks again.
