At Houlon Berman, we have over 50 years of experience representing clients in criminal matters in Maryland and the District of Columbia. We take pride in the results we get for our clients. In every case, the prosecution bears the burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt. The client has no burden of proof. It is always on the prosecution, plus the jury’s verdict must be unanimous.
Misdemeanors are “minor” criminal charges that may still result in jail time but are not more serious felonies. They are usually prosecuted in Maryland in the District Court. While misdemeanors certainly have lower maximum penalties than felonies, the consequences of a misdemeanor conviction can still be life-changing. A Defendant convicted of a misdemeanor in Maryland (including Rockville, Upper Marlboro or D.C.) could face jail time, and extended period of probation, a permanent criminal record, loss of job, suspension of your license, a loss of custody of a child, and many other serious consequences.
Our criminal defense attorneys at Houlon Berman have broad experience representing clients successfully in misdemeanor cases. Our success derives from our uncompromising commitment to our clients, and hard work. Our clients receive a robust defense in each and every case.
If you have a misdemeanor case in Upper Marlboro, Hyattsville, Bowie, Greenbelt, College Park, Laurel, Rockville, Bethesda, Silver Spring, or anywhere else in the State of Maryland, please contact us.
