Why Hire a Criminal Defense Lawyer?

Challenge the Prosecution

Prosecutors and police will use any evidence they can to persuade juries and judges of your guilt. With our criminal defense attorneys on your case, we will investigate all evidence presented against you and highlight discrepancies. Did officers follow the law and proper protocol? Are there questionable eyewitness accounts presented against you? If something doesn't hold up, our criminal defense lawyers will make it clear to the court.

Foster Empathy 

It's natural for people to come into a situation with preconceived notions, including jurors. Our Rockville law firm takes the time to get to know you personally, so we can humanize you to the jury. Prosecutors are motivated by guilty verdicts and will do whatever they can to present you as someone who deserves to be punished. By explaining who you are and how these charges came to be, our criminal defense attorneys can demonstrate to jurors that you much more than the charges you face.

Clear Your Name

A criminal conviction can have life-long repercussions. The law offices of Greenblatt & Veliev in Rockville will build a strong case to have your charges dropped or reduced. Keeping your name free of criminal convictions can ensure that important opportunities for advancement in your life aren't taken from you.

Practice Areas Greenblatt & Veliev Frequently Handle

hands in cuffs


Assaut is often defined as "an intentional act that puts another person in reasonable apprehension of imminent harmful or offensive contact." Prison time, fines, and restraining orders are some potential consequences of being convicted of assault. Our attorneys can determine if the police followed protocol, question the eyewitness accounts against you, and explore the possibility that you were acting in self-defense.

Domestic Violence

If you've been charged with domestic violence, we can analyze the evidence, the related police actions, and other aspects of your case to find any inconsistencies.

Drug Charges

Getting caught with even small amounts of certain drugs can result in felony charges. If police deem that you have enough illegal drugs to distribute and manufacture, you can face decades in prison. The attorneys at our Rockville, Maryland, law firm can start building a strong defense for your case if you're accused of drug possession or other drug crimes.

Sex Crimes

A criminal sex charge can permanently damage your reputation. If convicted, you may be placed on a public sex offender's list, limiting where you can live and what employment opportunities are available to you. Our attorneys know sex crimes can be sensitive and difficult to face. We represent each client facing sex crimes with dignity and respect, and let the facts of your case speak for themselves. 

Id check

Fake ID

False IDs are typically used by underage people to consume alcohol or enter 21 and older clubs. If you're an underage person who was charged with using a fake ID, or if your child is facing these charges, our attorneys can protect your rights. Our attorneys can help to have these charges dropped or reduced so that they have a minimal impact on your future.

Contact our Rockville law office so our attorneys can take a look at your case and determine what they can do for you. We will review your criminal case, look at ways a felony may be reduced to a misdemeanor, and develop a criminal defense approach to your case that can stand up against aggressive prosecutors and stigmas. As a defendant, you have rights, and it is our job to protect them.

Expunging Criminal Convictions 

Certain arrests and convictions can be eliminated from your record through expungement. Once you have been granted expungement, you have a legal right to say you do not have a criminal record. Background checks will no longer show a record of these convictions or arrests, and you no longer have to disclose the incidents under any circumstances.

Criminal records carry stigmas and hamper your ability to advance your career and your education. Expungement is one of our many practice areas. To explore whether you can have charges or arrests expunged from your record, get in touch with our Rockville law firm.
