Defending You Against Criminal Charges

Can you prevent criminal charges from appearing on your record? Is there anything you can do to avoid jail time? Can an arrest jeopardize your job security? Can you lose your driver's license for getting a DUI? Should you plead guilty and pay the fine for your traffic ticket?

Many people in Maryland do not understand what rights and options they have after an arrest. If you were arrested, it's important to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney who can protect your future, your rights and your criminal record. When you contact my firm — the Law Office of Fred Allentoff — that is exactly what you will find. I defend individuals in Owings Mills and throughout the Greater Baltimore area who are facing criminal charges, including:

  • Drunk driving
  • Traffic tickets
  • Drug crimes
  • Shoplifting
  • Theft
  • Domestic violence

Do I Need a Lawyer if I'm Going to Plead Guilty?

Many people think that the most effective way to resolve an arrest is by pleading guilty and accepting the deal the prosecutors offer. Regardless of how you plan on pleading, you need an attorney to protect your rights. I can use my experience to help minimize the charges or punishment you face. In some situations, I may even be able to have the case dismissed entirely.
