Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense
Defending a criminal case requires ability, knowledge, and complete dedication to the client.  Anything less is simply unacceptable because there is nothing more important to the client than the outcome of his or her criminal case.  The stakes are always high, whether the client is facing jail time, probation, a permanent conviction, or the just the stress and embarrassment of going through the criminal process.  Benjamin Herbst has handled hundreds of criminal cases ranging from felonies punishable by life to misdemeanors punishable by a fine.  In each of these cases the approach is the same; fight for the best possible outcome while keeping the client informed and involved each step of the way.  The Herbst Firm keeps in close contact with all clients during the course of their cases, and is available 24 hours a day to clients and their families.  There are few things worse than going through the criminal process alone and in the dark.  The criminal process is tough, but with the right legal representation you will never have to go at in alone.

There are a lot of lawyers in Maryland who claim to have experience defending criminal cases.  But few have devoted their entire legal career to fighting for the rights of defendants charge with a crime.  And even fewer have successfully convinced a jury to acquit their client of a crime punishable by life in prison.  Benjamin has done both, and continues to fight for his client’s rights each and every day.  The Herbst Firm handles all types of criminal cases in every state and federal jurisdiction in Maryland.  If you or a loved one has been charged or is being investigated for a crime, the time to call a lawyer is now.  Waiting to retain counsel can be extremely damaging to your case, as new evidence may continue to mount against you, sometimes illegally.  The Firm offers free consultations for any criminal matter and we can set up a meeting in our main office, or in an area close to you.  We are not salesmen.  We are criminal defense lawyers who take our job and our results seriously.  We don’t promise specific results, as doing so is both unethical and illegal, but we do promise to fight until the case is dismissed or the best possible results are achieved.  We’ll never shy away from trial just to close a case and move on to the next.
