Practice Areas


MD Code, Criminal Law, § 4-101 defines a weapon as: a dirk knife, bowie knife, switchblade knife, star knife, sandclub, metal knuckles, razor, and nunchaku.
However, Maryland law does not limit the definition of a weapon to the above listed objects. It is not uncommon to see household items such as cans, bottles, or lamps charged as a weapon, depending on how the defendant allegedly used the object on another person.

There are defenses to weapons charges, including carrying a weapon as a reasonable precaution against apprehended danger. If you are charged with a weapons crime, you need a lawyer who can present the appropriate defense in your particular matter, prior to and during trial.

Contact us immediately if you have been charged with a weapons crime of any kind!
