Domestic Violence Attorney

What is Domestic Violence?

Generally speaking, domestic violence is defined as the mistreatment of one family member or intimate partner by another.  In the State of Maryland, domestic violence is not itself a crime per se.  Instead, domestic violence refers to a cluster of criminal offenses that include first-degree assault, second-degree assault, and reckless endangerment.

Mr. Shepard is an amazing attorney as well as a person. He goes above and beyond for his clients, and does whatever he can to help them. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding all aspects of the law, unlike many other attorneys. He is willing to work with people financially. I have never met any other defense attorney that doesn't do this job mostly for monetary gain. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who is looking for a standout attorney, that cares deeply about, and helping his clients.
