Amazing
Mr. Rombro was referred to my family for a case that was brought against my son. It was his first offense but a very serious offense. We were so concerned as to what the outcome would be. Mr. Rombro fought for my very hard son’s freedom and read between lines of inconsistency. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer for services he offers. I am so grateful to God that he took the case and all things worked out for my family. He is very knowledgable and knows what he is doing.

Top Notch
We were in a crappy situation and I searched the internet for HOURS for an attorney. Here I had my fiancé being held out of state when we returned from our cruise. I contacted Allan and as soon as we hired him it was game on. Within 2 weeks my fiancé was home, recalled warrant and dismissed. If you’re looking for a REAL attorney with the aggressiveness for your case ALLAN IS THE ONE.! He answers texts, calls and emails. Put your life in his hands & I promise he will do everything possible. I will refer this man to anyone going through the criminal justice system.

Excellent service
After consulting a handful of attorneys, I hired Mr. Rombro to represent me with a DUI case. He is reasonably priced and experienced. He responded promptly from the very first call on a weekend and gave me his cell number. He was very pleasant, and knowledgeable. He answered my questions leading up the case over mutiple calls. I was facing many charges from the incident including a hit and run. He was able to get all but one minor charge dropped. I walked out of court with the most favorable outcome and I’m more than pleased.

Superb service
If I could give Mr Rombro and Ashley 1000 stars believe me I would. He is professional beyond belief, caring and accommodating. He listens to everything you tell him and provides outstanding service and favorable results. Unlike a lot of lawyers who use scare tactics to gain their clients, Mr Rombro’s approach is more like the kind uncle or family friend. I got pulled over with an expired license and MVA issued me an ID instead.....Mr. Rombro got it reduced to a minor ticket and PBJ after his explaination. Also Ashley is the sweetest and kept reassuring me that all would be taken care of more time than I could count. I really appreciate them and although I hope to never need a lawyer, I definitely know who I’ll call should I need to. Thank you so much for taking this stress away from me today!

Amazing Attorney Highly Reccommend!!!!
My friend had some legal troubles in Maryland but we live in New Jersey so I googled top attorneys in Maryland and were so very lucky to find Allan Rombro P.A. I actually sent a request on line way after hours and he responded right away. From then forward Allan and his assistant Ashley were always quick to respond, direct and thorough in the information provided. He quickly resolved the issues to the point we do not need to go back to Maryland, which is huge! We would HIGHLY reccommend Allan if you have unfortunately found yourself in some type of legal trouble. He worked quickly, professionally and was genuine in his delivery. Thank you again Allan and Ashley!!! Diane from NJ

10 Star Lawyer!
Allen Rombro has my highest possible recommendation and Id give him 10 stars if I could. I never thought Id need the services of a criminal lawyer but after a minor problem turned into a serious potentially life changing problem for my fiancee, we were scared to death and didn't know what to do. A family friend told me that Allen had gotten her sons felony drug case dismissed and she told me he was very caring and would help me. It was the best decision we ever made. I called him and within a half hour phone call the weight lifted off my shoulders. He explained the chain of events that led to the situation we were in and he explained exactly the steps he would take to fix it. He told me the best and worst case scenario and we really appreciated knowing this. I had spoken to two other lawyers before my friend told me to call Allen and neither lawyer gave me the negative side of things. Allen was absolutely honest and forthcoming and just a really warm person who cares about his clients. I have no idea what he did behind the scenes but he made the whole thing go POOF! I thank God for Allen because this could have ruined our entire lives and instead I'm going back to school without worry that my future husband will have a criminal record because he won't thanks to Allen!

Top Shelf!
The Law Offices of Allan Rombro helped me tremendously! I needed serious legal help in a pinch with a low budget. He was the third and last Attorney I had contacted. After contacting his office, he called me back much sooner than I had expected. Allan Rombro was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly to speak with. I truly felt like he cared about my situation and wanted to help. He took on my case for a more than reasonable fee, and was able to achieve the best possible outcome!

I Highly Recommend Allan Rombro!
I hired Allan in a DWI case, and from the first contact I felt comfortable and calm. Allan is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He took time to answer all questions (and they were many) and he provided suggestions for how I could be proactive in my case. He was checking in throughout the long process, providing information about the latest updates, and made sure that I as a client was feeling safe and secure. The outcome was perfect, a pbj and no points in my driver's license or in my records. Allan's professional approach and supportive attitude are amazing and I would highly recommend him as your lawyer!

Excellent Lawyer!!!
I was charged with a DUI last year, and Allan Rombro agreed to take my case. He was outstanding in every way possible during my case and in the court room. I received a Probation which ended up unrestricted, no points on my license, and not on my record. His experience in working with the judge for a reasonable outcome was what resulted, and it was a tough judge. Place faith and trust in Allan Rombro! He does the best for his clients and I am so very greatful!!!

NOLLE PROSEQUI
Me and my family had been pulled over and searched 3 times in a one week period. All 3 times the cops claimed they pulled us over because we went over the line, which was a lie & all 3 times they said their dog detected heroin, methamphetamine or ecstacy & they found neither of those any of the times we were pulled over. However, on the last stop after searching yet again for an hour, they were letting us go but then decided to search our person. When doing so, they found a suboxone in my wallet that I had forgot was there because it had been there for months. I'm a recovering heroin addict and there's a heroin epidemic going on so I kept the suboxone incase I ever got a craving, I knew I wouldn't be able to use. Well the officer told my girlfriend that I was getting arrested and that he really didn't want to arrest me for something that petty & it was a waste of paperwork but he would let me go if I cooperated. When we got to the station, he asked me who was doing burglaries and I told him I didn't know, I was on parole & don't hang around people that do that kind of stuff. Well the cop swore I was lying and locked me up. I bailed out & was scared to death because I was backing up 8 years plus 4 years for the suboxone. The cop even went as far as to call my probation officer and ream her out for not violating me before I was found guilty. Rombro took my case & I was thinking at the best I would get maybe 3 years.. he actually went in there and got my charges null prossed. I had planned to take it to a jury trial just to buy myself more time before going to prison but Rombro pointed out that it was an illegal stop & search & actually got the charges dropped. This man saved my life & did more than I thought any lawyer could do. I had put my life on hold, quit college & just knew I was going away for a few years. But now I have my life back and I can start my school work back up to better my life. I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants a real lawyer that will really look into and fight your case.

Dui , with hit and run
My Rombro was a fantastic lawyer. I had so many concerns with my dui case but the whole time we were waiting he kept in contact with me and my family letting us know what was going on and putting us at ease. The states attorney wanted jail time , I also had a hit and run. When she asked the judge for jail time my heart sank, but with Mr.Rombro help I walked away with dmp classes. I couldn't believe it! Thank you so much for all your help and letting me stay home with my 2 year old son.

A dedicated, experienced and highly competent advocate!
Allan Rombro has my highest possible recommendation! I hired Allan to represent me on a criminal matter that resulted from my divorce lawyer's failure and missing a deadline related to an ex parte order connected to my divorce and custody case. It was a complicated mess and Allan cut through the red tape that my own highly paid divorce lawyer could not manage to navigate. I was impressed by Allan's professionalism and accessiblity throughout the whole process. He answers his phone and even when I called him late on a weekend evening. He explained every step and clarified all of my options--which really helped given that I had never before had any dealings with the criminal justice system. After he obtained a full DISMISSAL, he followed up to make sure all was properly filed even items that were not part of our case. In sum, I recommend Allan--his is a great lawyer and a decent person who genuinely cares.

Stellar service!
I absolutely love Allan! I had an active bench warrant and live in Cleveland, Ohio, so making the trip to Baltimore with a busy work schedule, was out of the question. While he made no definitive promises, he worked wonders in not only having the warrant recalled, but having the charge dismissed as well. Again, all of this was accomplished without me having to travel from my city to Baltimore. With so much on the line as to my job and livelihood; I cannot thank you enough, Allan. As you know, I was petrified at the thought of losing it all. You made this process painless and efficient. You Rock!

Almost 7 years ago, I was 16 and made the biggest mistake in my life. Allan Rombro represented me in my case. He worked with me and my parents to get the best results in that situation. Mr. Rombro is definately a great lawyer to have represent you. Since my case, 7 years ago, he has still shown he cares about his client and continues to be a helping hand. Thank you, Allan Rombro.

Wonderful to work with
Working with Allan was a great experience. I had a difficult legal matter (involving a disputed traffic violation), and I was working out of state so I could not be there to resolve it. Thankfully, Allan maintained constant communication and worked diligently to get my case thrown out of court. I strongly recommend him to anyone with issues that seem too difficult to handle on your own.

Great DUI Defense Attorney
I hired Mr. Rombro as my attorney to defend me in my first ever DUI case. My hearing was held in Nov. 2015 and Mr. Rombro and Ashley were very pleasant to work with and had my best interest at heart. He was able to negotiate my case with the State's Attorney's Office and got me PBJ with no jail time, no points and without losing my license which could have cost me my job. I would highly recommend Mr. Rombro to anyone in need of a great DUI Defense attorney.

Charles County MD DUI
I was facing six different charges in Charles county Maryland including a DUI. This was my first offense. I came to the AVVO website and found Mr Rombro. Mr Rombro's office was very quick to respond to my initial call. Ashley, Mr Rombro's assistant quickly determine the seriousness of my charges and explained what they all meant. She explained the process and advised that Mr Rombro covers all of Maryland, so Charles County is not a problem. Ashley advised that Mr Rombro was in court at the time of call but advised he will call me back that same evening. He called that evening and reassured me that he can help me. Mr Rombro left me at ease after the call and my worries began to go away. Every time I received any mail regarding the case, Mr Rombro explained in detail. He kept me informed through out the process. He represented me during the MVA hearing as well as the District Court case. By using Mr Rombro he advised me to get an Alcohol evaluation and get enrolled in a DUI education class. I was set to loose my license for 45 days but thanks to Mr Rombro, I was able to drive to work, school and to the alcohol education. I didn't miss a beat. I also explained to Mr Rombro that my case is different due to Gastric ByPass Surgery and he was familiar and knowledgeable of my special circumstance. He said, I just used that in a defense on another client. Mr Rombro's experience allowed him to work my file in ways I didnt even know was allowed. But again, he explained each step of the process. Well, Mr Rombro was able to get 5 out of the 6 charges and associated fines forgiven. The 1 charge in which I pleaded guilty allowed me to get probation before judgement and 3 days of community service. No Jail time, no fines... just 3 days of community service. I am so glad I chose Mr Rombro to represent me and would refer him to my friends and family.
