Maryland Criminal Defense Attorney

Maryland criminal lawyer, Andrew V. Jezic, is the lead partner of Jezic & Moyse LLC and heads our criminal defense department. He was selected to the exclusive list of best criminal defense lawyers in Maryland by Washingtonian magazine from 2011 to 2015. Mr. Jezic is a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers.

Most recently, in May of 2017, Mr. Jezic was voted one of the very best 100 lawyers in the entire D.C, Maryland and Virginia region by Super Lawyers, an extraordinarily rare recognition, confirming Mr. Jezic’s reputation as one the most sought-after defense attorneys in the metropolitan area.

He is also a co-author of the widely respected book, Maryland Law of Confessions, first published in 2003 by Thompson/West and now in its twelfth edition.

As a Maryland criminal lawyer, Mr. Jezic has an extraordinary record of achieving outstanding results in criminal jury trials.
In 2010 and 2011, Maryland criminal lawyer Andrew V. Jezic convinced judges in two separate cases to vacate his clients’ guilty pleas entered with another criminal defense lawyer, whereby both clients would have been deported after serving lengthy prison sentences. In both cases, Mr. Jezic’s clients were eventually exonerated of all felony charges after jury trials and are now free of any threat of jail or deportation. In one of those cases in 2011, State v. Cuque, the jury acquitted Mr. Jezic’s client of all charges despite having viewed a videotaped confession by the client.

In 2014 Mr. Jezic was a featured speaker as a criminal defense lawyer for the fourth year in a row at the Alan Goldstein criminal law lecture in Prince George’s County, the premier criminal defense law seminar for lawyers in Maryland. In 2010 Mr. Jezic was a featured speaker at the annual Law Day seminar in Montgomery County, and was asked to speak at a Cross-Examination Workshop for the Montgomery County Bar’s Criminal Law Section in October, 2008, as well as at the Office of the Public Defender’s state-wide Training Seminar in May, 2008.

Maryland Criminal Defense Attorney Ahmet Hisim has 30 years of experience litigating all manner of criminal cases throughout Maryland, especially serious felony cases and murder trials. He was a prosecutor in the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office for 22 years, and has been a criminal defense lawyer for the past eight years.(See news articles about several murder trials from 1992 to 1998).

Mr. Hisim has had nearly 150 jury trials in his career, 50 of which have been murder trials. As a defense lawyer, he has achieved a “not guilty” verdict in many serious jury trials, as well as complete jury acquittals for four different clients charged with murder.

Mr. Hisim’s first criminal trial as a defense attorney was a case of Attempted Murder in Montgomery County Circuit Court. The client had been previously convicted with other counsel, and his case was remanded to circuit court for a new trial. The case ended after a week-long trial with a total acquittal, causing the State’s eyewitness to fall from his chair as the verdict was read in the courtroom. (See the article from the Washington Post about this stunning acquittal).

In addition to Mr Jezic’s results, the criminal lawyers with our law firm have years of experience representing clients, and are very focused on getting positive results in every case they handle. They will provide an aggressive defense for you, taking into account the unique facts of your case.

Maryland Drug Charges

In Maryland, it is unlawful for any person to possess marijuana, no matter what quantity. The charges and punishment will vary depending on the amount in your possession upon arrest.
If you are caught with up to 10 grams, you will potentially face a fine of $500 and up to 90 days incarceration. If you are found in possession of more than 10 grams, the fine will double and you could face an entire year in prison.
The police use the amount of drugs found in your possession to determine whether or not the drugs are for personal use or for distribution. For drugs other than marijuana, the fines and prison guidelines are much higher, ranging in the thousands of dollars and years in prison. Continue reading
