Criminal Law

If you are charged with a crime, you want a lawyer who will stand up for you and your rights. I zealously defend my clients in criminal matters, big and small, misdemeanor and felony, including:

  • Drug Offenses
  • Assault
  • Theft & Shoplifting
  • Weapons or Firearms charges, including hand gun violations and concealed deadly weapons
  • Rape and other sex crimes
  • Burglary
  • Breaking and Entering
  • Criminal Property Damage
  • Fraud & Forgery
I represent people in all phases of the criminal justice process, including bail hearings and the trial processes. I give each case my personal attention.

Alcohol, Drugs & Traffic

Alcohol charges are taken very seriously by our court system. Driving Under the Influence (DUI/DWI) can result in jail, probation, fines or being sentenced to a treatment program.

Defending somebody on DUI charges takes a lawyer who spends time understanding his clients. Because I give each client personal attention throughout a case, you can be assured that all your legal options are explored, so that you can make a truly informed decision on the best way to proceed with a defense.

I represent people in all types of traffic offenses, including driving without a license driving with a suspended license, or driving without insurance. In addition to court proceedings in the District Court of Maryland in Ocean City and Snow Hill and the Circuit Court for Worcester county in Snow Hill, I represent people in administrative proceedings involving retention or suspension of drivers licenses held before the Office of Administrative Hearings at the Salisbury Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration Agency (MVA).

Possession and/or distribution of drugs and related paraphernalia can have serious consequences. If you are charged with a drug offense, you want a lawyer that will work hard to defend your rights, and look out for your best interests. You want a lawyer who knows what motions need to be filed on your behalf. And, especially if you are a visitor to the Ocean City area, you want a lawyer who knows the local jurisdiction. Call me.
