Criminal and Traffic Defense


Every day fundamentally good people make mistakes. Financial distress drives a father to steal something from work. A family argument escalates to violence. A college student blows off steam smoking pot. A teen falls for peer pressure and shoplifts.

The police themselves are not immune to mistakes. They may arrest the wrong person, stop someone for no valid reason or overstep their authority.

At the law office of Cooper Law Firm, our defense attorneys safeguard the rights of people charged with criminal offenses in the Maryland-Washington D.C. metro area. For more than 40 year, we have defended people against misdemeanor and felony criminal charges in state court.

Do not give up your rights without a fight. Contact the Silver Spring law office of Steven M. Cooper for a frank discussion of your defense options.

More Than 40 Years of Defense Experience

We are aggressive advocates in criminal cases. We don't just urge our clients to plead guilty; we take it to court. We do whatever is needed to get our clients the best outcome possible given the facts of their case.

We don't rely on the police to get those facts. We have a full-time, licensed private investigator on staff (a former homicide lieutenant and special assistant to a U.S. Marshall) to help us build our case. Depending upon the evidence, we can then advise you on the best approach to take, whether that is negotiating for an alternate sentence or a reduced charge, or going to trial. We handle any criminal charge, including:

  • Drug offenses, such as drug possession and distribution and felony DUI

  • Weapons offenses

  • Assaults, including hate crimes, kidnapping, child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault and rape

  • Theft, including armed robbery, burglary, receiving stolen property, embezzlement, auto theft, and fraud

  • Property offenses, including arson, trespassing, breaking and entering and malicious destruction

  • Miscellaneous crimes, such as disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct, underage drinking and underage possession of alcohol, indecency and obscenity

Is there a warrant out for your arrest? You could be picked up at any time and put in jail, even if the warrant is only for failure to appear in court or a lot of unpaid parking tickets. If you want to turn yourself in, we can facilitate that in a positive manner.

Whether you are innocent and need help proving that, or you want to avoid the harshest penalties with a plea bargain, the attorneys at Cooper Law Firm will make sure you clearly understand your rights and options. Call 866-405-0124 or contact us online for more information.
