To all my clients and potential clients, please stay safe, healthy and positive. We will get through this. For now the Maryland Courts are currently closed through June 5, 2020. However, if you are a victim of domestic violence, have an emergency custody matter or have been arrested, the Court is available remotely to help. Please do not hesitate to contact my office should immediate services be necessary or if you want to discuss a matter that can be addressed by the Courts when they reopen. Please note I have left a message on my office phone with email and cell phone information. There are ways to file cases despite the closure. All the best, Debra L. Ackerman

The outcome of your criminal case will significantly affect your future, both in the short-term and long-term. Whether you are facing charges for drug possession or robbery, working with an experienced lawyer can make all the difference.

When So Much Is at Stake, Count On My Experience

I have been representing clients throughout Maryland and Washington, D.C., since 1985, and I am committed to helping you avoid conviction or minimize negative consequences if conviction is unavoidable.

I offer aggressive and knowledgeable defense in felony and misdemeanor cases, including:

  • Theft
  • Assault
  • Robbery
  • White collar crimes, including fraud, embezzlement and forgery
  • Drug crimes, including drug possession, distribution and sale of marijuana, crack cocaine and methamphetamine

If you have been charged with any of these crimes, it is crucial to contact me immediately. Your freedom depends on having competent and committed representation and a solid, well-planned defense. I will thoroughly review the evidence in the case against you and develop an aggressive legal strategy that challenges all the weaknesses in the State’s position.

I will take the time to explain the nature of the charges against you and provide an honest assessment of the penalties you are likely to face. By providing you the information you need to know, you will be in a position to make well-informed choices. The decision to go to trial or pursue another course of action always rests with you, the client.
