    I have been practicing Criminal Law exclusively for 32 years in all State and Federal Courts. In that time I have had the pleasure of being granted "Pro Hoc Vice"status (temporary Bar Admittance) in 12 other states and 10 Federal Jurisdictions in Criminal Cases.While I am, on occasion, requested to leave Maryland for a particular case,I try to stay in state. I have tried roughly 150 Jury trials during my career in every County/City in Maryland and 1000's misdemeanors trials in District Courts.

The Best. Hands Down
Terry Lavenstein is a true professional in all sense of the word. Very responsive, I called him on a Saturday afternoon and he returned my call not two hours later to schedule an appointment that following Monday. Its clear after talking with him that hes about his business and knows everything there is to know about what he does. As my lawyer he was able to drop my whole DUI case for one count of negligent driving and only one point on my driving record. Seriously, Terry Lavenstein is the man! Very likable with a great sense of humor, he should be your first and only choice as an attorney.

the BEST
Terry is the best lawyer to have as your advocate.. watching him in court is like watching TV lawyers in Court.. which you know that is not how it really is, but with Terry, he is brilliant, charismatic and entertaining.. Got me off my charges and made it so I could get the charges expunged from my record... definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a GREAT attorney

Brilliant
Terry was great through the whole process in my DUI hearing. He prepped me perfectly and was very savvy in court. Ultimately, what could have been something that had a major negative impact for years instead was reduced to unsupervised probation, no fine, no points, no DUI. He even strongly encouraged me to stop drinking. And I did.
