Accomplished. Experienced. Knowledgeable.

An accusation of any type of crime is a serious matter. Even a simple traffic citation can turn into a major headache without skilled legal representation. At the Law Office of James F. Brewer in Westminster, I draw on extensive experience handling criminal law cases throughout Carroll County and the surrounding counties to provide the Maryland residents I represent with tireless advocacy. My background as a prosecutor for 19 years combined with 16 years serving clients in private practice means I understand the criminal justice system from both sides. That knowledge allows me to provide you with a distinct advantage in mounting an effective defense. Whether you face felony charges or need help fighting a traffic ticket, I am dedicated to protecting your rights while resolving your case with skill and persistence.

Contact Law Office of James F. Brewer, LLC today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Criminal Defense — Whether you face charges for homicide, assault, drugs, or a gun crime, hiring the right lawyer can mean the difference between freedom and a life behind bars. I review your case, the evidence against you, and the prosecution’s case to build the best criminal defense for your situation.
  • DUI/DWI and Traffic Violations — Drawing on my vast legal experience, I determine whether police engaged in lawful procedures by investigating whether there was probable cause for the traffic stop, the breathalyzer test was accurate, the field sobriety test was properly administered, you were Mirandized, and your Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable search and seizure was violated.
  • Family Law — In addition to my criminal law and DUI/DWI practice, I have experience handling family law matters related to divorce, child custody, and orders of protection.

If police arrest you for drunk driving, drug possession or any other crime, you need an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible. When you hire me, I commit my time, resources, and knowledge to defending your freedom, rights, and reputation. Call James Brewer today at 410-751-7300 to arrange your free initial consultation.
