Whether you are charged with domestic violence, assault, or murder, contact us, in Prince George’s County, Charles County, and Southern Maryland, to set up an appointment for a free initial consultation to discuss your legal concerns and case.


Maryland assault charges can range from disorderly conduct charges to felony domestic violence allegations. Crimes of violence can dramatically affect your life. The court views these crimes very seriously, and may impose harsh criminal penalties. Do not make the mistake of speaking with law enforcement personnel before consulting an attorney. Our firm will explain your rights in cases related to:

  • 1st Degree Assault: A felony assault involving a severe injury or weapon
  • 2nd Degree Assault:
  • Domestic violence and assault
  • Disorderly conduct and resisting arrest
  • Assault on a police officer
  • Malicious destruction of property
