Jason A. Shapiro

Maryland Criminal Defense Lawyer

Criminal law involves clients who are being prosecuted by the state or federal government after being arrested and charged with either a misdemeanor or felony offense. An arrest, and subsequent criminal charge, comes with many foreseeable consequences including incarceration, a criminal record and/or serious fines. However, aside from the foreseeable, defendants are faced with many personal and sometimes overlooked strains including but not limited to the loss of employment, a strain on familial ties, house arrest, community service, and public scorn or humiliation.

With zealous representation from the Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates TEAM the above stresses will be greatly reduced. The Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates team has years of experience trying and handling criminal cases of all varieties. More importantly, the attorneys at Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates (SZA) remain committed to providing the highest level of representation and professional standards that money can buy.
