What We Can Do for You

As former assistant state's attorneys, we have the criminal law knowledge and experience to prepare a strong defense. We often forward our office calls to our cellphone on nights and weekends so you can reach us anytime. When you need a lawyer, you can turn to our law firm with confidence.

Our firm provides defense representation for all types of criminal cases from misdemeanors to felonies in Maryland including:

We carefully assess all options for helping our clients achieve their overall goals, including avoiding jail time, keeping their driver's licenses and other important work qualifications, and keeping their criminal records clean. We are prepared to defend you at trial if necessary, but we will also aggressively pursue a dismissal or the best plea offer we can.

Extensive Local Criminal Law Experience

Both Andrew and Cynthia MacDonald were criminal prosecutors right here in Wicomico County. As former criminal prosecutors, we handled tough criminal cases appearing in court virtually every day of the week. Andrew MacDonald served as assistant state's attorney for Wicomico County for more than 10 years, prosecuting every type of criminal case from DUI to murder with more than 100 jury trials under his belt. As a criminal prosecutor for 10 years, until he resigned in 2006, Andrew MacDonald actually litigated trials in more cases than many defense lawyers try in their entire careers.

Focused on Client Communication

The criminal justice system is a frightening process for many people. Andrew and Cynthia MacDonald recognize that in-person communication with your criminal defense lawyer is important to you. When you retain the MacDonald Law Office, LLC, to represent you or a family member in a criminal case, either Andrew or Cynthia MacDonald (depending on your preference) will personally handle the case from the initial consultation to the final appearance in court. Unlike large metropolitan firms, you will not be handed off to a paralegal or a lesser experienced associate. We strive to always be available to promptly address our clients' questions and concerns either in person, by email or on the telephone.

Advise. Advocate. Defend.

We have three goals for our clients:

  • Advisor: to be your personal advisor and guide you through the criminal justice system while keeping you fully informed about the process
  • Advocate: to be your aggressive advocate to get you the best outcome possible for your criminal charges
  • Defender: to defend your rights from abuse by the police, the prosecutor and the court

Addressing the Needs of Specific Groups

Though the bulk of our criminal defense practice is devoted to defending local residents, including those in white collar professions who need to carefully protect their reputation, there are several other categories of clients whom we also represent on a regular basis:

  • College students: There are potentially some serious long-term consequences for students who are convicted of crimes such as DUI, and we provide a vigorous defense.
  • Vacationers: We represent many people who get caught up in the criminal justice system while visiting in Ocean City, Assateague Island National Seashore and other vacation destinations.
