Who We Are

We are a group of lawyers, social workers, and staff members from the Juvenile Division of the Maryland Office of the Public Defender who have chosen to dedicate our careers to working with children in the Juvenile Court System. We believe that every child is deserving of zealous advocacy, and we fight each day to protect and defend our clients and their due process rights. Our representation continues even when the court case ends. We encourage our clients to stay in touch with us.

Vertical Representation

We believe that each child is best represented when s/he has only one lawyer. It is our goal to have only one lawyer represent a child throughout his/her juvenile court experience, including arraignment, adjudication, disposition, violations of probation and any subsequent court contacts.

Holistic Defense

A juvenile delinquency case is more than just the charge itself. At the Juvenile Division of the Maryland Office of the Public Defender, we work together as a team to try and address all of the needs of our clients, including referrals for counseling, educational assistance, and community based activities. We utilize lawyers, social workers, investigators, support staff, and experts to provide comprehensive representation for our clients.
