Maryland Criminal Defense Attorney
Felony and Misdemeanor Defense Attorney Serving all of Maryland, centered in Baltimore.
Every client is important to me as I understand what is at stake for you. I assist clients charged with murder and manslaughter, armed robbery, theft, drug possession and distribution, sex offenders and career criminals facing many years incarceration, as well as the everyday citizen facing charges for the very first time.
No matter your charge, it is critical to take action immediately. Contact me immediately so we can begin the process and help fight the charges filed against you. What many charged with crimes don’t realize is that there are many rights an individual has that they may lose if they don’t act properly and right away. For example, those charged with a felony have a right to a preliminary hearing, but that hearing must be requested within 10 days of being charged, or otherwise you lose the opportunity to investigate the charges and cross examine the State’s witnesses.
I offer effective felony and misdemeanor representation to clients in Western Maryland, Central Maryland and the Eastern Shore.
Mr. Fastovsky is a class act. He took my case at the very last second and he is very reasonably priced. We literally walked in and walked right back out of the courtroom. I was very ill prepared and was having a horrible week. Any sense of nervousness, I was showing that. He was the voice of reason, and worked especially hard for me. Of the literally 10 mins I spent in the court room maybe 2 of those were in front of the judge as they dropped my charges. Be advised this was a serious group of charges I was facing. I could have been jailed for some time for them. I recommend this lawyer to any and everyone. Easy to work with, fairly priced and a gentleman to say the least. Thank you Mr. Fastovsky.

I've turned to Mr. Fastovsky a couple of times now for help. He is extremely professional and friendly. He's helped ease my nervousness, and works very hard and gets great results. I've had other attorneys in the past, but have never been as happy or confident in them as I've been with Mr. Fastovsky.
