Strategic, Aggressive Criminal Defense Representation You Can Depend On
Good people sometimes make mistakes and bad choices, resulting in arrests and charges. If you’ve been charged with a crime, you don’t need judgment. You need skilled legal help from someone who cares about the outcome of your case as much as you do.
That’s what you can expect when you contact Thomas Sims Law Firm. Our team of attorneys offers three decades of combined legal experience, a detailed knowledge of Maryland criminal law, and a dedication to protecting the rights and freedoms of each client we serve.
Handling A Wide Range Of Criminal Offenses
Our attorneys can help you fight or otherwise resolve a range of criminal charges, especially misdemeanors and other district court matters. Examples include:
- Drug crimes (possession, intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, etc.)
- Shoplifting and other theft offenses
- Property crimes
- Domestic violence
- Drunk driving (DUI) and traffic offenses
- Disorderly conduct
- Juvenile crimes
- Stalking and harassment
- Carrying a concealed dangerous weapon
While our attorneys are highly skilled at arguing cases in front of a judge, they can also negotiate with prosecutors on your behalf, when necessary. Not all criminal charges will be resolved the same way, so it is important to hire an attorney who can help you maximize your legal options.
Don’t Underestimate The Consequences Of A Misdemeanor Conviction
While less serious than a felony, a misdemeanor charge should not be underestimated. If convicted, you could face fines, incarceration or probation, and other costs and penalties.
You also need to consider the noncriminal consequences of misdemeanors. If you have a conviction on your record, it can be significantly more difficult to get hired for a desirable job, get approved for housing or access educational resources like federal student loans. These consequences will last far longer than any sentence you receive.
The bottom line is simple: Take any criminal charge seriously by seeking help from an experienced criminal defense attorney.
