About me

I am a lifelong resident of Baltimore, Maryland. I graduated from Washington College on the eastern shore of Maryland in 1992.  I earned my law degree from The Washington University in St. Louis in 1998. I was sworn to the Maryland Bar in 1999. In that same year I was hired as an Assistant State's Attorney in Harford County. In 2000 I joined the Baltimore County State's Attorney's Office. I spent more than 9 years in the office trying over 65 jury trials and hundreds of Judge trials. In 2005 I was elevated to Chief of the Gang Unit and in 2007 I was elevated again to the Chief of the Narcotics Unit until I entered private practice in 2009. I take with me into private practice my extensive trial experience, aggressive trial tactics, and exceptional legal knowledge in the representation of my Clients. While in private practice I have represented many Criminal, DUI and Personal Injury clients through out Maryland.

    Mr. Francomano has earned the fine reputation he enjoys amongst the bar. He is a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with on almost any matter. He has been able to harness the rare but invaluable combination of 1) a command knowledge of the applicable law and procedure; and 2) a practical approach to the situation, which combination invariably achieves the best result possible for his clients. Although many attorneys believe they possess this trait, it is only the rare few that actually do, and Mr. Francomano is amongst the best of them.
