Firm Overview

Annapolis, Maryland, Criminal Defense Lawyer

I started my legal career more than 20 years ago as a prosecutor and defense attorney in court martial cases. I was a member of the Navy Judge Advocate General Corps, prosecuting and defending military personnel charged with sex crimes, drug charges, and other types of court martial offenses. I also served for two years on the legal staff for the Superintendent of the Naval Academy in Annapolis.

Today, I focus my practice exclusively on the defense of people charged with criminal offenses. I represent people facing state and federal charges such as DUI, sex charges, criminal traffic offenses, drug charges, theft, and white collar crime throughout Maryland. I also represent military personnel stationed in Maryland, San Diego, Norfolk, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

Cases involving criminal offenses often involve complex legal and scientific evidence issues. I have found that many of the cases I have won over the years have been those in which I have had the best expert witnesses. I have used expert witnesses such as forensic psychiatrists and forensic pathologists in sex crimes, gun cases, murder cases, and drunk-driving cases.

I also have considerable experience handling criminal cases involving false confession. When confronted by an aggressive investigator, many people confess to crimes they didn’t commit, or which the prosecutor could not prove without a confession. In some cases, the confession may be contradicted by physical evidence in the case. I have been successful using expert witnesses to suppress false confessions. Once the confession is suppressed, it cannot be used against the defendant.

Attorney Profile

State Practice Overview

Our State criminal law practice includes defending many types of cases in the District and Circuit courts throughout the state. Often we are able to identify specific defenses to the charges which require a contested trial. Due to our particularized experience, we are most often asked to handle cases involving addictive behavior, such as cases involving drugs or alcohol, and charges alleging child sexual abuse. These types of cases often involve the opportunity to develop treatment and other sentencing alternatives. Our practice often involves referral of clients to treatment programs and other mental health professionals in an effort to achieve that objective.

Serious Felony Cases

Due to the nature of our practice, we are often asked to defend very serious criminal cases in the Circuit Courts throughout the State. These cases often involve medical, psychiatric and scientific evidence and the use of expert witnesses in these fields. Expert witness testimony can involve very complex legal issues with which we have had extensive experience. These types of cases often require jury trials with we have also had extensive experience and success. Treatment for addiction and sentencing alternatives in the event of conviction are a significant part of this practice as well.

Child Sexual Abuse Cases

Recent years have seen a dramatic increase in the number of these cases being prosecuted in the Circuit Courts in Maryland. Our experience causes us to believe that this is probably due to an increase in investigative and prosecutorial interest in these cases rather than an increase in the number of offenses being committed. These cases often involve false accusations of abuse. Lawyers experienced in defending these types of cases can often identify patterns of the child’s or parent’s behavior that can expose the false nature of the allegations in those cases. When the allegations are true, there is often a treatment alternative to traditional sentencing practice which can be developed in dealing with these cases.

Financial Crimes

Our practice in recent years has brought more frequent requests for representation for these types of cases. Our experience shows that the types of theft and fraud cases typically prosecuted in state court are often related to the need for the offender to obtain money to fund an addiction. Our practice therefore in these cases very often includes referral to substance abuse treatment programs to develop an alternative sentencing option for the court where appropriate.

Drug Related Offenses

Due to the very large number of drug cases prosecuted in State courts, we are often retained to defend drug charges and have significant experience doing so. These cases often involve potential defenses related to the legality of the search which led to the seizure of the drugs in question. An experienced defense attorney can be most helpful in advancing these defenses by way of pretrial motions practice. These cases most often involve addiction to the type of drugs in question. Our practice often involves the referral of clients to appropriate drug treatment programs in order to give the court an alternative sentencing option in the event of conviction.

Serious Traffic Cases

Due to the serious potential penalties involved, we are very often retained to defend serious traffic cases, including drunk driving cases, especially those which involve accidents, injuries or prior offenses which significantly increase the potential for serious punishment. Maryland law also provides for significant criminal and administrative penalties for driving without a license, on a suspended license or for driving without auto insurance. We are therefore asked very often to defend these types of cases in our practice. The legality of the traffic stop is often a potential defense in these cases. An attorney experienced in litigating search and seizure issues can be very effective in defending these cases. These cases also very often involve referral to alcohol education and treatment programs to provide an alternative sentencing option for the court in the event of a guilty finding.
