Maryland is one of the toughest states for robbery, punishing those convicted with some of our country’s most severe penalties. Whether unarmed or armed robbery, it is a criminal offense carrying felony charges, the most serious type of offense. With just the threat of a weapon, a defendant can face up to 20 years behind bars.

- Mounting a Robbery Charge Defense
A Blackford & Flohr robbery defense lawyer will analyze your case and instruct on the proper defense. To win your case, our defense lawyers only have to cast a reasonable doubt. Alibi evidence, and witnesses who can corroborate this evidence, are often used as a key to determining that the prosecutor’s evidence doesn’t 100 percent prove the crime.
In cases with mounting evidence against a defendant, we research plea deals and often work with the courts to agree upon a misdemeanor charge. This is important because beyond prison, a felony conviction will have a lasting effect on your life. It will be part of your permanent record, making it difficult to find future employment. It will also strip you of constitutional rights, like the right to own firearms and the right to vote.
