Helping You Avoid Harsh Criminal Penalties

Under Maryland state law, homicide contains many individual charges (such as manslaughter). Which one you’re charged with depends on the circumstances, as well as what prosecutors think they can prove to a jury. Sometimes, law enforcement will even inflate charges in order to increase the penalties the accused may receive. Those penalties can be very serious, involving decades of prison time and very steep fines, because most assault and homicide crimes are felonies. Those penalties can increase even further when the charge involves a gun, injury to a law enforcement officer, or took place during other serious crimes.
