Best experience possible
"We don’t think we could have ever found a bigger blessing than meeting Jeremy Eldridge. He never made us feel like we were anything but his #1 clients and friends. He created a bond with our whole family. We put our whole world in his hands and he delivered. We would say that Jeremy is one of the best litigators. He was always very personable and available. His Administrative Assistant always went above and beyond as well; for example, the client got bail on a Friday, and the AA hand delivered the paperwork under the worst conditions; ie. weather, time restraints, it was a holiday, etc. His whole office was always quick to respond to all of our calls. His office always made us feel respected and heard. We would recommend this lawyer and this firm to anyone.” The Rogers Family

I wish I could give him 6 stars!
This man went above and beyond for me, and I don't want to think about what would have happened if I didn't hire him. I saw him pull out all the stops, he doesn't back down from a challenge and will fight for the best possible outcome. Most definitely a very savvy navigator of the courtrooms of Maryland. He worked wonders with my case, he can probably do the same for yours.

If you need an excellent lawyer; call Jeremy!
Earlier this year, my family was faced with a devastating situation that we did not know how to handle. We reached out to several lawyers; however, they did not provide the personalized touch that Jeremy did. He personally walked my family through each step of the court process, managed expectations and provided an unbelievable outcome. We consider Jeremy our family lawyer! I don’t write reviews at all so for me to write this one, speaks volumes to Jeremy’s character, knowledge, experience of the Maryland Judicial system and positive outcomes! If you need an excellent lawyer; call Jeremy!

Best lawyer ever
My experience of working with Jeremy as my lawyer for a driving incident was incredible. He balances his brilliance with his personability and made feel confident and comfortable about the case without fake sugar coating from the beginning. He is kind, intelligent, down to earth, and also direct and honest. Jeremy went above and beyond to make sure I felt prepared along the entire journey. He was willing to answer any of my questions anytime. He is extremely easy to talk to and great to work with and had a great way of making me feel less anxious even at court. When it came time to argue my case, he showed that he had truly taken the time to know me, my case, and my background, in the way that he successfully argued my case with important details of my life. I felt like he truly took the time to view my case and me specifically as an individual and not just another client. The outcome of my case was better than I expected and he was able to keep me far from jail, I am very thankful that I found Jeremy and highly recommend him without a doubt.

Unsurpassed Representation.
Forget the stereotypes about lawyers with Jeremy. From minute one he was attentive, kind, somewhat funny :) but most importantly he was honest and transparent about my options and our path moving forward. And even though he warned me of all possible scenarios, my issue has since been resolved with the best outcome available to me due to his acumen and hard work. I don't hope anyone reading this needs a lawyer, but if you do I would strongly urge you to contact Jeremy.

He’s the best.
Went to contact Mr Eldridge through a family friend and I was not disappointed. From our first ever interaction I knew I had the right person for the job. I’m a black male and I do not have the best impression of the American legal system towards people that look like me. Mr Eldridge didn’t for one second let me even feel that way, he was thorough with my options. He had two plans of actions. He got the job done. I thank God for him. He knows how to get the job done.

Simply Fantastic!
Jeremy was simply fantastic. He informed me of all of the possible solutions for my case, all of the laws pertaining to my case, and he stayed in constant contact to inform me of any new developments. Jeremy was on top of everything, the entire time. Lastly, dude is an absolute BEAST in the courtroom, and he made my family and I feel more like family instead of clients.

BEST ATTORNEY EVER
I want to preface this review by stating that I don't typically write them. It was simple for me to write this review, thanks to Jeremy. I won't say too much about my case, but I will say that all signs pointed to a jail sentence for me. Jeremy's heart, willingness, and tenacity allowed me to escape the situation with just a court fee. He cares about his clients. I would suggest him to anyone in need of assistance. Jeremy I'm so grateful for everything you did for me.

Superb & Supportive Attorney
Jeremy was an excellent support system and sounding board for me. He is an expert in his craft, knowledgeable about the law, and was confident with how to handle my situation. He treated me fairly, with dignity, and like a human being who cared about my well being. He was great about keeping me in the loop and just checking on me. He had a calm, friendly, funny demeanor which made all the difference. I felt like I was dealing with family. Thank you Jeremy. I give you my highest recommendation.

Trustworthy Lawyer
I was locked up with NO BAIL for whipping my child butt. That's right child abuse charges. I hired Jeremy Eldridge for the case . This was the best decision I ever made . I'm a great father and this is unbelievable to be locked up for disciplining your child. After the first week with Jemery on the case he told me the truth. He didn't lie or play the game of just pay me and I'll handle it ( which I have got from alot of lawyers). He's a straight shooter and tells you the good , the bad , and the ugly . I was facing years in jail and also not being able to see my child. Jeremy jumped right in on the case and after a couple weeks later I was released from jail and he had all the charges dropped. SIMPLY AMAZING!!! BEST LAWYER I EVER HAD !!!!!!!

From the moment I spoke to Jeremy, he made me feel at ease and answered all of my questions. I had no doubts going into court with Jeremy by my side. Everything Jeremy told me was accurate and he made it happen . I received the best possible outcome for my case and I’m very thankful for that!

Jeremy Eldridge is an AWESOME Attorney!!!
I was charged with a criminal matter in early 2020. This was my first time ever having to face a criminal matter. Jeremy Eldridge was highly recommended by a family friend to represent me in this matter. From the moment I reached out to Jeremy to the happy ending of this case, I felt confident in my decision to retain Jeremy as my lawyer. As you can imagine, I had a multitude of questions and concerns and Jeremy was able to answer every question and prepare me for every possible scenario. I was originally charged with a felony and 2 misdemeanors. By the time of trial, Jeremy was able to reduce the charges to one misdemeanor. My sentencing was better than expected and offered an opportunity for expungement after the unsupervised probation ended. The end result was a misdemeanor that has now been expunged due to Jeremy’s diligence in representing me in this matter. COVID-19 presented its own challenges with postponed hearings, etc. but Mr. Eldridge and his staff kept me informed during every step of the process. I would highly recommend using Jeremy to represent you in all legal matters.
