Highly Recommend for Criminal Representation!
Mr. Lyons has worked with my family serveral times over the last few years, specifically for criminal felonies and misdemeanors. He has always provided excellent expertise in the area of Maryland criminal law, including comforting our family with his knowledge and advice both inside and outside the courtroom. His reputation is impeccable and I believe you'll find him to be an excellent attorney to address your legal needs.
