Bates & Garcia, LLC.

Baltimore Criminal Defense Lawyers

Our Maryland legal team understands the serious emotional, physical and financial struggles you may be facing due to your legal matter. At Bates & Garcia, P.C., our attorneys do not focus on one area of the law. Rather, we provide comprehensive representation for a wide range of complicated issues. We are reputable advocates known throughout the legal and business communities for our dedication to our clients' needs, as well as our refusal to back down from adversaries. Our law practice includes:

Trust, Experience and Leadership When Good Just Isn't Good Enough

Client service is the hallmark of our law firm. We understand that there are many Baltimore and Annapolis law firms that can handle criminal defense, personal injury, medical malpractice and real estate litigation. However, it is important that you consult with a lawyer who understands more than the law. Without guidance and representation from attorneys who understand the legal system from all angles, you could suffer undue setbacks.

Our legal team includes individuals at the height of their careers. We have handled hundreds of cases throughout our 35 years of combined experience. At Bates & Garcia, P.C., our attorneys take a team approach. We work together on cases to make sure every client benefits from our extensive experience and knowledge of the law.

Our office is located in the heart of downtown Baltimore, across from the Baltimore City Courthouse.
