Criminal defense attorney, William A.
Simmons, brings 30 years of criminal law experience in successfully defending
such matters in the local trial courts in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
Whether representing you as a first-time offender for drugs or robbery or other
serious crime, Mr. Simmons has the experience and knowledge to evaluate and
vigorously defend your criminal case.
Criminal charges, such as
battery, drugs, theft, burglary, robbery, arson and sex offenses require an experienced and competent attorney to evaluate
the State’s allegations, determine if evidence can be suppressed, prepare
witnesses, and develop trial tactics. Our attorneys strive to answer questions
in clear and understandable terms and through experience are able to convey to
you the potential exposure to jail, or other risks, such as the sex offender
registry or the effect a conviction could have on your immigration status.
- Pretrial Release is critical to anyone
charged with a crime. Pretrial Release means you will be out of jail until the
trial date. Our attorneys can help you at the initial bond hearing
or subsequent hearing to convince a judge to consider setting your bond without
money up front or a bond with terms more favorable to you.
- A trial may be the only reasonable
solution for you to avoid a serious criminal conviction and be found not guilty.
- Your punishment could include a period
of jail or probation with conditions that mandate sobriety; completion of a
designated addiction program; and suspended jail time to encourage you to comply
with potential terms of probation.
- Our attorneys can educate you
regarding the probation process and represent you at a violation of probation
- Our attorneys are competent before
juries as well as in trials before a Judge in Maryland and the Superior Court
for the District of Columbia.
Our attorneys can help you by
providing legal advice or representation at a free initial consultation. Call us
