About me

Approximately 40% of Kurt's practice consists of criminal defense and 60% deals in representing small and medium sized business matters. He is barred in both State and Federal courts in Maryland and  Pennsylvania. He practices throughout Maryland but primarily in Harford, Baltimore City & County. As a former prosecutor and while in private practice, Kurt conducted numerous investigations into such crimes as vehicular homicide, public corruption, weapons, and human trafficking.  He regularly represents individuals and businesses at administrative proceedings at the Maryland Office of Administrative Hearings for a wide variety of Licensing cases.  He also has litigated several hundred Judge and jury trials, ranging from violent crimes to traffic cases.




Before attending law school and becoming an attorney, Kurt worked for several businesses in sales and marketing. There he gained valuable experience in the business world and witnessed first-hand the dot-com meltdown. He predicted the unfolding credit crisis and left the sinking ship of the mortgage industry years before it actually occurred so that he could attend law school.

Mr. Nachtman will conduct an in-depth investigation into your case, so that at trial he has the ability to not only vigorously defend your rights, but show the Judge or jury, what really happened, not just what the State alleges happened.
