Mr. Eidelberg presented an superb defense for my mother in a very tough time for her and me. He subpoenaed all witnesses and the phone records on my mother behalf. Not only that he sought and received a postponement for my mom to gather more evidence in her favor.
Mr. Eidelberg consistently communicated with my mother and kept her up to date on what he was doing with her case. When I emailed him, he promptly emailed me back within two hours on a Saturday afternoon! Its an open-door policy with him. There is no drama or gray areas with him.
In a fastidious act, he got both charges dismissed against my mom and we never went to trial.
Mr. Eidelberg is the best Defense Attorney not only in Towson but in Maryland in my opinion.

A victim of medical malpractice is in an intimidating, frightening position. Lee Eidelberg accepted my case and guided me through a long, complicated process. He was deliberate in making sure we understood the options at each juncture. Throughout the months of preparation, he demonstrated extensive knowledge in the complex medical issues concerning the specifics of the case. Prior to trial, he walked us, and our witnesses, through depositions and practice trial testimony. At trial his demeanor with the court and jury was precise and compelling. His witness examination was insightful, on target and effective. His presentation demonstrated the highest example of ethical and professional standards. In court Lee gave voice to the injustice I suffered. He won my case. He also won my deepest respect, gratitude and unqualified endorsement. His presentation demonstrated the highest example of ethical and professional standards.

We hired Mr. Eidelberg to represent our son for a misdemeanor charge. Mr. Eidelberg was professional, honest and thorough with the handling of our son's case. The outcome was positive and we could not be more pleased. Words cannot convey the heartfelt gratitude we have for this gentleman. If you are reading this review because you are seeking legal counsel, believe me when I tell you that Mr. Eidelberg will not disappoint you.

Mr. Lee Eidelberg is by far the best attorney you will find on this site, you will not find anyone better, period.
My co-worker asked me to drive him to a pharmacy so he could submit and pick up a perscription. When I drove him back so that he could pick it up, we were arrested by what seemed like the whole police force. To make matters worse, I had foolishly signed all my rights away and made a statement. I admitted to knowing my co-worker was involved with drugs, admitted that I was the owner of a Marijuana pipe, admitted I was driving, and I admitted that I drove him to two other pharmacies before the current one.
I was charged with conspiracy, possession with intent to distribute oxycodone, Possession of marijuana, and possession of Paraphernalia. Then later the prosecutor upped the charges even further to Conspiracy, Felony possession of a fraudulent prescription and Felony possession with intent to distribute. I went on Avo.com and I found Mr. Eidelberg and all the awsome reviews he had, but it seemed like he handled more DUI stuff, yet still I went to see him anyways.
He was straight up with me, he read me the penalty directly from the book and let me read it afterward; I was looking at up to 20 years in prison---20 YEARS!!!. I was distraught. He told me not to lose hope. I hired him and he immediately began filing motions for discovery, he got in contact with the prosecutor, he checked on what was happening with my former co-worker, he suggested what programs I needed to start, he told me what I should be doing, everything you could think of he began doing. He always stayed in contact , even on weekends and when he was out of town, he never took longer than 1-2 hours to respond to a question, ever.
Mr. Eidelberg tried to talk to my former co-worker to see if he would exculpate me but then the guy started trying to push everything on me. He even told the prosecutor that I was an oxycodone addict and not simply a drug dealer but a full blown drug lord controlling part of the city. Then the trial got pushed back because my former co-worker had not yet found a lawyer. To say the least the judge was not impressed. It really seemed like things couldn't get worse, Every thing that could go wrong was going wrong. Yet Mr. Eidelberg stayed very calm and practical, he remained unsurprised in the least, he had predicted everything and we had discussed it months in advance. Then the day before the new trial date Mr. Eidelberg called me and said he needed to talk with me, he had some news. I asked him if it was good news or bad news. He said it was possibly good but he had to talk to me first.
When I got there he said he had worked out a possible plea with the Prosecutor. The plea was, if I did only 80 hours of community service by the end of the year they would stop prosecuting me and within 3 years I could even expunge the fact that I was ever even arrested. I looked at him silent, my mouth gaping, and totally dumbfounded. He looked back at me simply expecting a yes or a no to the offer, but I was too far in shock to talk, so he continued. In his usual calm and logical demeanor, he told me he was going to try to press the prosecutor even further. After the 80 hours were completed, he was going to push that the case be totally dismissed and the arrest along with it so that I wouldn't even have to wait the 3 years.
THE PENALTY WENT FROM A POSSIBLE 20 YEARS TO A MERE 80 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE!
I could not be happier, if you want the best Lawyer around I can not recommend him enough, Hire Mr. Eidelberg! The man is a legal wizard, changing your situation for the better.

Just after graduating from school I got into some trouble after drinking and making some terrible decisions. I had no idea what to do. I thought I had ruined my life. I knew I had to get an attorney and couldn't really find one I was comfortable with until I met Lee. I called Lee while he was on vacation and less than an hour later I had a response. The response sounded like all of the other lawyers I talked to until he told me everything possible he was going to try, and assured me everything was going to be okay. After meeting with him was the first time I felt good about my future in weeks and I knew I needed him to represent me. Both Lee and his assistant Mark did everything they possibly could for me and kept me up to date on everything that was going on. While all the other Lawyers I talked to told me they could most likely get me probation before judgement, Lee was confident he could get my case dropped. Two months later, and that was exactly what he did. I don't know where i'd be right now if it wasn't for Lee. If you need representation, I would STRONGLY recommend Lee Eidelberg.

Lee is such a great attorney, he helped me with a misdemeanor criminal matter. I was facing jail time but he got my charges dismissed and I ended up not having to go to court. He was very caring and understanding when speaking to him. He will listen and do everything he can to help you and figure things out. I would recommend him to anyone - especially anyone who has a criminal case. He's a great lawyer and you won't be disappointed.

Lee and his assistant Terry were tremendously helpful in handling my auto injury case. From our first consultation to final settlement about 8 months later, Lee and Terry were thorough in explaining all of my options to me, checking in, and making sure I was satisfied with my medical care following the accident. Any time I had a question regarding medical paperwork or insurance correspondence, Lee and Terry were quick to reply and clear up any issues. I felt that I could be candid with my concerns while we were awaiting settlement, and they practiced compassion and utmost professionalism at each step.

I highly recommend Mr. Eidelberg. We contacted him shortly after my son received 4 traffic violations which could have resulted in 13 points, $1,400 in fines and the loss of his license due to him still being on a provisional license.
Mr. Eidelberg was very honest and straight with us
through the whole process and explained
everything in detail. He took the time to research so he was prepared for court. He personally contacted me through email with any questions he had.His
assistant,Patti, was also very nice and would always respond back to my emails within minutes!!
My son's case was completely dismissed! No points
or fines. Should we ever need an attorney again I will definitely be calling Mr.Eidelberg.

I would 100% recommend Lee Eidelberg. I was facing a failure to blow in breathalyzer with a 4 month driving suspension attached to it. Lee met with me several times. We thoroughly went over my case. We went in front of the OAH hearing and he was successful in contending that I did not give a knowing refusal. I get to keep my license with NO restrictions. When I went to MVA to get back my license the clerk said she had never seen that before. She has always seen restrictions when returning someones license. I also was refunded my court costs. Lee is the best. If you are looking for a lawyer for any criminal charges give him a call immediately.
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse this lawyer's work. I have had the opportunity, as an assistant public defender in Baltimore County for many years, to see Mr. Eidelberg's work in the courtroom and find him to be a very passionate, persuasive and effective advocate. His previous experience as an assistant state's attorney certainly sets him apart from the private defense bar, particularly, in Baltimore County where he served. He knows what he is doing and does it well!
Stanford Gann, Family Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer's work. I worked with Lee Eidelberg on a major malpractice case which was tried and appealed resulting a judgment in excess of $2.5MM. He demonstrated complete knowledge of not only the facts of the negligence but most importantly the medical complex issues. Moreover, his courtroom demeanor and precise examination of witnesses were appreciated and complimented by the Court.
