Maryland Criminal Defense Attorney

Being investigated or charged with a criminal offense can be a stressful and frightening ordeal.

In these situations, you are fighting to preserve the life you have, because the consequences of a conviction reach far beyond the possibility of jail time. Criminal charges will impact your career, your family, your reputation, and your finances. En Español.

A skilled, seasoned, and aggressive Maryland criminal defense attorney could guide you through the criminal justice system while seeking the best possible results.

Our Commitment

Our team of Maryland criminal attorneys has a wealth of experience defending those investigated for or charged with criminal offenses throughout the Maryland state and federal court system. Every member of the team is a trial lawyer, which allows case strategies to be developed from the outset that have the greatest likelihood of success.


In this age of rapidly evolving technology, law enforcement agencies employ increasingly more complex and invasive investigative techniques. Our aggressive Maryland criminal attorneys rely on their extensive experience and knowledge of these techniques to develop creative solutions to the complex issues that arise as a result of their use.


The time and attention paid to your case is directly related to the possibility of a successful result. Our attorneys work extremely hard to provide the personal attention to you and your case because it is that focus on those minute details that directly increase the possibility achieving your goals. It is of critical importance in a criminal case that you involve an attorney from the very earliest stages of an investigation. Kush and the rest of the Maryland criminal defense team make themselves available at a moment’s notice to intervene in order to protect your constitutional rights to silence and to counsel. We can be there to prevent law enforcement agents from taking advantage of you when you are in a panicked state after a search warrant is executed at your home, deliberately at 6:00 a.m., and to help to locate and preserve evidence that will help you in your defense.


Kush and the rest of the team manage every case with intensive organization as they begin every case with an eye toward trial. Unlike some other firms, we employ two full-time defense investigators, which allows our team to bring investigative resources to bear from the earliest point in a case in a cost-effective way.

Federal Crimes

Federal crimes in Maryland can include a range of offenses, from drug, weapons, and sex offenses to white collar crimes such as embezzlement, fraud, and bribery. Generally speaking federal offenses tend to bring the threat of lengthy prison terms in the event of a conviction. Those charged and under investigation for federal offenses are typically facing prosecution by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorney’s Office, both agencies that tend to benefit from extensive resources. They are backed up by a litany of other federal agencies, including the FBI, IRS, DHS, DEA, and the ATF. Many federal investigations include the work of task forces that combine the efforts of local, county and state law enforcement officials with federal agencies.

How Do I Find The Best Criminal Lawyer In Maryland?

We hear this question a lot. A lot of individuals who are facing criminal charges want to know who the best criminal attorney in Maryland is. The truth is that no such thing exists. First, when looking for the best lawyer to handle your case, you need to understand that the practice of law varies greatly across different practice areas. Lawyers who practice environmental law do not handle the same kinds of cases as attorneys who handle trusts and estates matters.

The criminal laws and statutes vary widely between jurisdictions, and an attorney who practices in one state may not be licensed to practice in Maryland. Even within criminal law in Maryland, there is a big difference between white collar cases, misdemeanors, and serious felony cases. There is no objective measure for determining who the best Maryland criminal lawyer may be. This is why, when you are seeking representation for an attorney in a criminal matter, it is important to look for someone you feel is the best criminal lawyer for you and your case. In truth, the biggest part of this determination has to do with finding an attorney with whom you are comfortable and who you feel you can trust.

Title: I knew we had found the right lawyer for the case

We are from out of state and had no idea who could help us with our case for our college age son. After seeing his amazing reviews and speaking with him on the phone I knew we had found the right lawyer for the case. Kush Arora is so knowledgeable and was so reassuring that our case could be handled quickly and as painless as possible. He was responsive to all of our calls and emails and keeping us updated, it was great. Even after the case was closed he has gone out of his way to help us with paperwork, he is gem.
