Marshall Hensley is a Federal Court Criminal GURU "BEAST"
My name is Donny I was indicted by Federal Government in Baltimore on a extremely high profile case involving the EXTREMELY Corrupt Baltimore City Police Department and the GTTF rogue unit. For i was facing a life sentence for dealing Multi-Millions of Dollars of DRUGS for the Baltimore Police Department. Needless to say it was a intense Time within my life. I turned to the best lawyers in the State and knew Marshall had been handling a large amount of cases within the Federal Court. So I hired him as my lead attorney. Marshall Henslee began immediately by coming to the Police Station on the Weekend to personally see me to go over my extremely complicated case. I eventually had to Testify within Baltimore's biggest corruption case in History at Federal Jury Trial covered by Local, national, and International News in attendance for multiple weeks. Marshall never failed me. He spent HUNDREDS of hours on my case numerous house and office visits. Needless to say the sentencing Judge Cathrine Blake had sentenced 5 cops before my sentencing to over 90 years in total. Marshall got me 5 Years in a federal Prison Camp with Drug programs that can reduce my sentence plus got me accepted into one of the best prison camps in the country. I promise you if you need a criminal defense lawyer look no further then Marshall Henslee my attorney & friend. *** If you don't believe me just Google GGTF baltimore corruption and look at this case that Marshall Henslee represented me within !!!!

Very satisfied!
I came to Mr. Henslee in a horrible predicament. We meant and I explained my circumstances and I could tell that he was genuinely concerned and willing to do all he could to help me. The cost for his services was fair and the end result was a big relief. Me. Henslee is beyond a doubt very knowledgeable and fair. He represented me well. I recommend that anyone in a similar situation call upon him. He won’t let you down.

Smart and effective attorney who will put you at ease and help solve your legal problem!
A downtown law firm referred Mr. Henslee to me for a matter that required an attorney who was familiar with the Baltimore County courts. I highly recommend Mr. Henslee for the following reasons. First, he was friendly, approachable and reassuring. Second, I could contact him by text or phone with questions and he was always quick to respond. Third, he is clearly a master of the law and as an added bonus knows everyone in the Baltimore County courts in Towson--from bailiffs to clerks to attorneys to judges. Fourth, his fees were reasonable and he saved a tremendous amount of money, not to mention time and worry, by effectively representing me. I am so grateful to him! There are many attorneys who practice in Towson (the sheer number can be overwhelming!)--Marshall Henslee is the best!

Best DUI/DWI lawyer in Maryland!
Marshall Henslee is known as a top criminal defense lawyer, and has represented several family members and friends of mine. When I got pulled over and arrested for DUI, I knew he was the only one to call. And I am glad I did. Even though it was on the weekend, Mr. Henslee answered my call and met with me, answered all my questions and helped me understand the process. In court he defended me and because of him I was given a probation before judgement. He is THE MAN!
