About Craig M. Gendler


Since 1980 I have devoted my practice to protecting the rights of persons charged with crimes, DUI/DWI, serious traffic offenses, and those who have been injured in motor vehicle and on-the-job accidents. While obtaining the best possible result is of great importance, so is returning your telephone calls and responding to your emails in a timely manner. I personally provide prompt, thorough and aggressive representation. I have conducted trials before judges and juries throughout Maryland in cases ranging from death penalty litigation to speeding ticket and “fender-benders.”  Every case is a “big” case to those involved.

Accident cases are taken on a contingent basis. There is no fee unless I win your case. Fees for criminal, DUI, and traffic cases are determined on a case-by-case basis, depending upon the complexity of the issues, number of witnesses, anticipated length of trial, etc. There is never a fee for an initial consultation for any matter.
