When anyone is faced with criminal charges in Maryland, it is important to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney. The consequences of a criminal conviction can be severe and include possible incarceration, fines and a criminal record that may be with you forever. Particularly in this day and age where information is more accessible than ever through the internet, a criminal record should be avoided at all costs wherever possible.

Attorney Keith Krissoff has vast experience handling criminal defense and traffic defense matters for clients in Anne Arundel County, Annapolis, and other counties and locations throughout Maryland. We know how the prosecution puts cases together. We know how to defend and look to dismantle those cases and help our clients obtain the most favorable outcomes under their particular circumstances.

When defending criminal cases and traffic cases, we explore all avenues to obtain the best results under the circumstances of the particular case.

We’ll look for ways to have a case dismissed without a full blown trial wherever possible. For those cases that go to trial, we’ll work hard preparing and provide representation in a way to maximize the chances of a successful outcome.

As criminal defense lawyers and traffic defense lawyers, we work hard to identify flaws in the state’s case, and look for effective ways to argue and demonstrate reasonable doubt where it exists. In every case we handle, we will look for all potential defenses which may include constitutional rights violations or other technical missteps in the initiation, procedures and prosecution.

We have helped many clients secure favorable results by identifying flaws and problems in the state’s case and effectively showing speedy trial violations, defects in charging documents, unlawful stops and arrests/Fourth Amendment search and seizure violations, improper confessions/statements, discovery violations and the inadmissibility of certain evidence.

In those situations where cases go to trial, our extensive experience allows us to use methods to engage in aggressive and effective cross-examination of the witnesses for the state.

If you are charged with any crime in Maryland, we can help you. No two cases are alike. We will carefully scrutinize the facts and law to determine the most effective strategy for your criminal law case. You need seasoned legal counsel when charged in a criminal case. The potential consequences are too harsh to ignore. With an experienced criminal defense lawyer in your corner fighting for you, the odds of winning a voluntary dismissal by the State, not-guilty findings at trial or some other favorable disposition are greatly improved.
