Maryland Criminal Lawyer.

The Herbst Firm's criminal defense lawyers take pride in client centered representation. We believe that while skill and command of the courtroom make for a successful lawyer, they do not necessarily make for a complete lawyer. The Herbst Firm focuses not only on results but also on personal attention and compassion. It is our goal to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients and also to keep them informed every step of the way. If you want the services of a complete lawyer for your criminal or personal injury case contact the Herbst Firm for a free consultation at any time, 24 hours a day.

Relentless Criminal Defense.

Being charged with a crime can be one of the most stressful and frightening events that one can experience. It can feel like the whole world is turning against you, and not just the police and the prosecutors. Judges, friends, and even family members can read a police report or hear about criminal charges and make assumptions about you. All defendants are presumed innocent under the law, but out in the community your reputation will suffer the minute you are arrested. This is exactly why you need to hire a Maryland criminal lawyer that will be completely devoted to fighting for your rights and for your freedom. The Herbst Firm will relentlessly work with passion and energy to resolve your criminal case and achieve the best possible outcome. The Herbst Firm will not settle your case unless you are completely satisfied, and our firm will never shy away from fighting your case at trial. Do not wait to hire a criminal defense lawyer! The early stages of a criminal investigation are a critical time for a defendant to have representation. Police and prosecutors often receive the majority of their evidence from the defendants themselves. The Herbst Firm can prevent this from happening, and assure that your rights will be protected the second we are hired.

The criminal defense division of the Herbst Firm handle cases in all Maryland jurisdictions including Baltimore, Anne Arundel County, Montgomery County, Prince George's County, Howard County and the entire Eastern Shore.  We also handle Federal cases in the United States District Courts in Greenbelt and Baltimore City.  The firm has represented clients in numerous types of criminal cases including DWI and DUI, drug possession and distribution (marijuana, cocaine, heroin, prescription pills, etc.), theft, robbery, murder,  burglary, gun crimes, suspended license, disorderly conduct, assault, prostitution, and probation violations. We will aggressively represent defendants facing federal drug trafficking, conspiracy, extortion, and racketeering charges.  Benjamin Herbst is also an experienced juvenile crimes attorney, having dealt with numerous cases involving teenage defendants.

Aggressive Litigation Attorneys.

The Herbst Firm's personal injury attorneys also understand that being injured in a car accident, slip and fall, or other injury as a result of someone else’s negligence can be a traumatizing experience. Even if the pain of the actual injury wears off, the injured can be left unable to work, with medical bills piled high. We will fight relentlessly to try to restore our clients back to their lifestyle before the injury accident by not simply pushing your case to a quick settlement, but rather vigorously fighting the negligent party and the insurance companies for a just resolution. Once again do not wait to retain a personal injury lawyer if you have been injured in an accident. Waiting to hire a lawyer may negatively impact your civil case.

We Will Fight For You.

The personal injury division of the Herbst Firm specializes in negotiating fair settlements and filing lawsuits throughout Maryland.  We take pride in representing our clients against large insurance companies who pretend to care about their customers right up until the time comes to pay out a claim.  Types of injury cases that our personal injury division handles include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, and defective products. If you or someone you know has been injured due to someone else’s negligence contact the Herbst Firm immediately for a free consultation.
