Aggressive, Experienced, Specialized, Connected

The old adage about lawyers is that “a good lawyer knows the law, a great lawyer knows the judge”. At STSW, we believe that the most effective lawyer knows both. This is why we also believe that if you or a loved one is being investigated or has been charged with committing a State or Federal Crime, it is imperative that you immediately seek out the most aggressive, experienced, specialized and connected criminal defense attorneys available. At STSW, we have assembled a team of Former State and Federal Prosecutors, along with supporting attorneys including a law professor who teaches Evidence at the University of Baltimore, who meet that description. Indeed the STSW Criminal Team, virtually all of whom have been selected as Super Lawyers by their peers and includes one attorney who was recently selected as one of the Top 10 Criminal Attorneys on the East Coast, is widely considered to be among the top criminal defense teams in the State.

Why just hire a criminal attorney, when you can put an entire Criminal Defense Team in your corner? At STSW our Criminal Team has almost 100 years of combined experience defending people charged with criminal offenses including Narcotics Offenses, Sexual Crimes, Domestic Violence Assaults, DUI’s and many other major and minor crimes. And unlike most law firms, our criminal attorneys practice exclusively criminal defense. This means our attorneys are in criminal court every day and have spent years building the relationships with prosecutors, the judiciary and court staff that are necessary to achieve the results you are looking for.

Who you choose to defend you if you are charged or being investigated with a crime will be among the most important and consequential decisions you will ever make. Unfortunately, ever y day people make uninformed decisions as to who to hire and simply retain the only attorney they know, the attorney who did their divorce or accident case, or fall for cheap marketing techniques such as responding to unsolicited letters sent usually by unqualified and inexperienced lawyers. At STSW, we believe that a client who takes the time research the experience and qualifications of attorneys before retaining one is not likely to make this common mistake and instead will hire an aggressive, experienced, specialized and connected criminal defense team like the one at STSW
