The Herbst Firm is a trial oriented law practice, and our number one mission is fighting for the rights of our clients.  We handle criminal defense and personal injury cases in every state and federal jurisdiction in Maryland.  Our criminal defense lawyers have handled cases ranging from minor misdemeanors to felonies punishable by life in prison.  And in any charge, our office will provide skilled and aggressive representation.  Regardless of guilt or innocence criminal defendants face a major uphill battle when taking on law enforcement and the state.  At times it can feel like the whole world has turned against you, including friends and family members   We all know that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, but in reality a person charged with a crime may seriously doubt that this fundamental principle of our country’s justice system even exists.  A stigma attaches itself the minute a defendant is charged, and it could take months or even years to remove it.  The Herbst Firm understands the battle that each defendant faces, both in and out of the courtroom.  We completely commit ourselves to fighting for our clients the minute we are hired.  Not simply to protect their liberty, but also to restore their reputations in the community.  We have successfully fought the government to have cases dismissed before and during trial.  And if the situation calls for your case to be presented to a jury we will never back down or pass your case on to someone else.  Our job is to protect our clients, and this is something we take extremely seriously.  If you or a loved one has been charged with any state or federal offense contact our office immediately for a free consultation.

Being injured in an accident due to another person’s negligence can be one of the worst experiences of a lifetime.  Physical pain resulting from the injury is only half of the stress and strain that these accidents produce.  Victims of auto, truck, and motorcycle accidents, and slip and falls may face enormous medical bills and may not be physically able to continue working.  The financial damage can be catastrophic.  This in turn often results in strained personal relationships and mental anguish.  There is no way that a settlement check can ever fully restore what was lost due to another person’s negligence but it can begin to the healing process.  The personal injury lawyers at The Herbst Firm will fight for every penny that is owed to you.  The insurance companies have the desire keep all of their billions of dollars in their bank accounts.  This is what keeps them so profitable.  But there comes a time when these companies must make good on paying victims the money they deserve.  And in order to assure that you are justly compensated it is essential to consult with an attorney.  Do not attempt to negotiate with an insurance company alone.  They have a history of taking advantage of unrepresented claimants.  Our advice is to not even speak to another insurance company without a lawyer.  There is simply too much at stake.  If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident or a slip fall you may be entitled to compensation.  We are available 24/7 at 410-207-2598 to discuss your potential case.
