Abuse Charges.

Maryland Criminal Defense Lawyers for Child Abuse, Elder Abuse, and Hazing

Fight for your side of the story when facing abuse charges.

Maryland law considers child, elder, and other types of abuse to be a breaking of the trust between one in power and a vulnerable victim. It is not kind or merciful to those it convicts of abuse.

If law enforcement suspects you of abuse, then you need to rely on a defense team that will fight for your side of the story to protect your family – and your future.

How Can Criminal Defense Lawyers Help Abuse Charges?

I was facing some serious charges. Every single day for three months that was all I had on my mind, and its especially hard when you feel as though you didn't commit a crime. Then Mr. [Jim] Crawford gave me a call the night before court and told me he already had it all worked out – just be at the courthouse so I could sign a couple papers and then be on my way.
