Maryland Criminal Defense Lawyer for Referrals
Maryland criminal defense lawyer Randolph Rice has over a decade of experience handling criminal defense cases for clients throughout Maryland. Our attorneys have handled cases in dozens of areas of criminal law, and we may be able to take your case, too. Our attorneys handle cases dealing with any of the following charges:
One of the most common criminal charges that can affect people from all walks of life is drunk driving. Maryland has both DWI (driving while impaired) and DUI (driving under the influence) charges, which, in part, means that many drivers can face drunk driving accusations even if they blew under .08% on a breath test. Drugged driving DUI and DUI with a minor in the car can also be very serious charges.
Theft charges in Maryland are mostly consolidated into one statute, which means that charges for shoplifting, larceny, embezzlement, or other types of theft would all come under the same code section. These charges can have serious effects, especially if the value of the stolen goods or money is $1,500 or more. Our attorneys can work to get charges dropped or dismissed and fight harsh penalties in these kinds of cases.
Assault and Domestic Violence
Assault charges can come from many types of altercations, including bar fights or especially aggressive business negotiations. Domestic violence is one of the most difficult types of assault charges to deal with, and a conviction for domestic violence can be especially damning in the middle of a divorce case or other cases. Call our lawyers for help fighting these kinds of charges.
Drug possession charges often cast a very dark shadow on someone’s character. Even charges for a small amount of marijuana can lead to fines, but more severe drug possession charges, charges for possession with the intent to deliver, or drug manufacturing charges can lead to serious jail time.
Today, charges of sexual assault can have a huge impact on one’s career, business associations, marriage, and other aspects of their life. If your client has been accused of sexual assault or sexual harassment that could lead to criminal charges, it is vital to get them a criminal defense attorney to handle those aspects of the case. These charges can involve serious jail time and registration as a sex offender, potentially setting them up for future complications and legal issues.
Finding that you have an active bench warrant can be stressful. Especially if the warrant is in another state, it can be confusing for someone to figure out what to do next. Our lawyers can help contact the court, find out what the warrant is for, and help our clients address their charges in court. We can start from that point and work to challenge the case and work toward an agreement to resolve the charges without arrest, if possible.
Maryland is a huge travel hub, and many people face high-speed violations, drunk driving, reckless driving, and charges for other serious traffic offenses while passing through. If your client is from out-of-state and needs to fight their traffic tickets in Maryland, our attorneys can take their case and fight to reduce fines, license suspensions, and other serious traffic ticket penalties.
Fighting Criminal Charges in Maryland
Our lawyers work diligently to fight charges for our clients. We start by challenging the evidence in the case. Many criminal cases are based on bad evidence collection and mistakes involving warrants, reasonable suspicion, and probable cause. Many charges cannot progress once suppression and other evidence issues have been worked out, leading to dropped or dismissed charges.
Our attorneys also work to help our clients avoid the pain and stress of trial. If we can handle your charges without subjecting you to trial, we will work to do so. This often means negotiating a fair plea deal to lesser charges or agreements that the charges will be dropped in exchange for community service, classes, and other alternative resolutions.
We work to represent our clients’ best interests and protect their rights no matter how severe the charges they face might be.
