Criminal Charges in Takoma Park
Situated in such close proximity to the District of Columbia, Takoma Park experiences a law enforcement presence from multiple local, state, and federal agencies. In addition to the large number of traffic and DUI charges that arise on the heavily-traveled roads that run in, out, and around Washington, D.C., the residents and commuters in Takoma Park commonly face a wide variety of criminal charges.
Our Takoma Park criminal defense attorneys are available to work with clients on many different criminal matters. Some of our common practice areas include:
- Vehicle Theft

Criminal cases do not warrant one-size-fits all defense, since each case is completely unique. However, the knowledgeable attorneys at our firm understand how to put case law and proven defense strategies to work for clients, molding them to the particularities of each specific case.
Considerations when Hiring an Attorney
Choosing an attorney is a lot like any other important life decision. You need to find an attorney that works best with you and best fits your needs. You also want to consider an attorney’s background and what other people say about the attorney. Our firm has many criminal attorneys who work in Takoma Park and have extensive experience litigating in the Montgomery County court system, and they have the combined local experience and client recognition to provide you with the tools you need to effectively defend your freedom.
Here is a set of questions to consider and possibly ask during your initial consultation with a defense attorney:
- Does this attorney have experience practicing in the local jurisdiction where I am being charged?
- When I go to online legal review services like AVVO and Martindale Hubbel, what are this attorney’s clients and peers saying? (The same question applies to more general rating sites like Yelp! and Google.)
- When speaking with this attorney, does he or she treat me like a person, or like just another case?
- Does he or she take the time to listen to what I want, or does it seem like he or she may be inclined to pursue a “one-size-fits-all” solution?
By thoroughly vetting your options for legal representation, you can work to determine which attorney may be best suited to help you with your charges.
