Criminal prosecutors in the Eastern Shore counties and throughout Maryland are getting increasingly tough on violent crimes and gun crimes. Anyone accused of one of these serious crimes needs an aggressive advocate who will make sure the laws are applied fairly.
At the MacDonald Law Office, LLC, we are former prosecutors who now defend clients against all types of criminal charges, including violent and gun-related charges. Contact us today at our offices in Salisbury and Ocean City for a free consultation with an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
Defending Clients in State & Federal Court
Any crime that involves the use or threat of force against another person is considered a violent crime. Any crime that involves the use of a firearm is considered a gun crime.
These crimes are often closely connected, and we defend clients against any combination of violent and gun crime charges, including:
- Assault and battery
- Reckless endangerment
- Robbery and armed robbery
- Carrying a firearm without a permit
- Transporting a firearm in a vehicle without a permit
- Underage possession of a firearm
We defend clients in both state and federal court, and we are familiar with the unique characteristics of both systems. We will make sure the prosecutors are held accountable to the standards they must follow before very serious consequences are imposed on anyone accused of a crime.
Fighting Harsh Jail Sentences under the Exile Program
In Wicomico County, which has the third-highest rate of gun crime in the state of Maryland, the Exile program mandates a prison sentence of five years or more for anyone convicted of any violent crime involving a firearm or if a convicted felon is found guilty of illegal gun possession.
While he was a prosecutor, criminal defense attorney Andrew MacDonald designed the county's Exile program. He understands how the system works, what evidence is required to convict someone and how to fight back against unfair prosecution.
If you are accused of any violent crime and/or gun crime, don't hesitate to contact us at (410) 348-7809 to discuss what we can do to help you avoid or reduce serious consequences.
