As a lawyer, I believe in being straight with you about whether you can beat the charges or whether a favorable plea negotiation is your best option. I will be up-front about the consequences you will face for any guilty plea, which may include jail time, probation, sex offender registration or a criminal history that will make it harder for you to find work.

With offices in Baltimore, Annapolis, Ocean City and Bel Air, and South Florida, I offer five convenient locations for people who are charged with crimes in Maryland and Florida. Many of my clients come from throughout the state of Maryland and beyond, as well as South Florida.

No matter what type of law you are accused of violating and what kind of charges you face, I offer a free initial consultation by phone or in one of my offices. If you are incarcerated, I can also meet with you in jail.
