Andrew Jezic

Prior to entering private practice in 2003, Maryland criminal defense lawyer Andrew V. Jezic served as a Maryland prosecutor for nearly eight years. During his time as a prosecutor, Mr. Jezic prosecuted some of the most serious felony cases in Montgomery and Anne Arundel counties. Now as a Maryland criminal defense lawyer, Mr. Jezic aggressively represents defendants around the state and in Washington, D.C. facing such serious charges as murder, rape and armed robbery. He has handled over 90 jury trials in his career and over 25 homicide cases.

In 2011 and 2013 Mr Jezic was selected to the very exclusive list of best criminal lawyers by Washingtonian magazine. Mr. Jezic has been recognized as a Super Lawyer from 2011-2015, an accolade that goes to only the top 5% of lawyers in Maryland. Mr. Jezic also has a perfect 10/10 rating on AVVO.

Mr Jezic is a co-author of the widely respected book, Maryland Law of Confessions, first published in 2003 by Thompson/West and now in its eleventh edition. Mr. Jezic's book has been cited or quoted in nine reported opinions by Maryland's highest and intermediate appellate courts. Judge Charles E. Moylan, Jr., a scholar on Maryland criminal law, wrote in a published opinion: "The leading academic authority on confession law in Maryland is Jezic, Molony, Nolan and Woodward, Maryland Law of Confessions."

Mr. Jezic has won many acquittals and dismissals in high-profile cases. For a small sample of these success stories, please see the link to recent news.

As a criminal defense lawyer, Mr. Jezic has an extraordinary record of achieving outstanding results in jury trials. Regarding his jury trials which are not presently on appeal, Mr. Jezic has achieved a winning result in 41 out of 46 jury trials as a criminal defense lawyer: a Not Guilty verdict, a dismissal in the middle of trial, a mistrial, a Motion for New Trial, a hung jury, a windfall compromise in the middle of trial, or a reversal on appeal. With the few jury trials that did not end successfully, Mr. Jezic fought to the bitter end, filing pro bono appeals in the State's highest courts and in the U.S. Supreme Court. Mr. Jezic continues to look for ways to get a new trial for these clients.

In 2010, Mr. Jezic argued two significant criminal cases before Maryland's highest court. In 2011, the State's highest Court, on the same day, reversed two other complex cases handled by Mr. Jezic at the trial level, thereby giving Mr. Jezic's clients a new chance at freedom. The State's highest Court reversed yet another of Jezic's cases in 2011, giving his client a new trial in a murder case. Mr. Jezic argued another case before Maryland's top Court in June, 2012.

In 2010, prosecutors in two separate jurisdictions dismissed the cases against Mr. Jezic's clients, after the jury in each case had heard Mr. Jezic's winning cross-examination of the complaining witnesses. Remarkably, yet again in 2012, prosecutors dismissed all murder charges on the third day of a jury trial in Prince Georges County, after the Jezic team's vigorous investigation and opening defense. Read Washington post article.

In 2015 the prosecutor in Prince George's County dismissed another serious stabbing case on the third day of the jury trial after Mr. Jezic's cross-examination of numerous eye witnesses.

In 2010 and 2011, Maryland criminal lawyer Andrew V. Jezic convinced judges in two separate cases to vacate his clients' guilty pleas entered with another criminal defense lawyer, whereby both clients would have been deported after serving lengthy prison sentences. In both cases, Mr. Jezic's clients were eventually exonerated after jury trials and are now free of any threat of jail or deportation. In one of those cases in 2011, State v. Cuque, the jury acquitted Mr. Jezic's client of all charges despite having viewed a videotaped confession by the client.

Ahmet Hisim Ahmet Hisim

Maryland Criminal Defense Attorney Ahmet Hisim has 30 years of experience litigating all manner of criminal cases throughout Maryland, especially serious felony cases and murder trials. He was a prosecutor in the Baltimore City State's Attorney's Office for 22 years, and has been a criminal defense attorney for the past eight years.(See news articles about several murder trials).

Mr. Hisim has had nearly 150 jury trials in his career, 50 of which have been murder trials. As a defense attorney, he has achieved a "not guilty" verdict in many serious jury trials, as well as complete jury acquittals for four different clients charged with murder.

Mr. Hisim's first criminal trial as a defense attorney was a case of Attempted Murder in Montgomery County Circuit Court. The client had been previously convicted with other counsel, and his case was remanded to circuit court for a new trial. The case ended after a week-long trial with a total acquittal, causing the State's eyewitness to fall from his chair as the verdict was read in the courtroom. (See the article from the Washington Post about this stunning acquittal).

Mr. Hisim won his client a complete acquittal in a two-week murder trial in the Baltimore City Circuit Court for an alleged 2008 murder in Remington Village. The State presented three eyewitnesses who identified his client and attempted to use DNA evidence to tie the client to the crime. Mr. Hisim's cross examination of the witnesses caused their testimonies to contradict one another. Mr. Hisim showed that the DNA evidence was shown to be not related to the crime. The jury ultimately found Mr. Hisim's client Not Guilty on all counts.

In yet another 2008 murder case, a jury acquitted Mr. Hisim's client after a week-long trial. Mr. Hisim was able to show that the police and prosecution had the wrong murder weapon, by using the State's own ballistic expert. The State's witness' credibility was completely undermined by the fact that the weapon which actually caused the victim's ultimate demise could not have been the weapon the witnesses accused the client of using.

Mr. Hisim was able to win an acquittal of all murder charges for his client in July of 2013. The State's main eyewitnesses lacked complete credibility. The detectives and other expert witnesses contradicted each other and had improperly collected evidence. Mr. Hisim was able to convince the court to suppress the actual bullets recovered from the victim due to the detectives' mistake. The jury deliberated for less than 3 hours and returned a Not Guilty verdict.

Mr. Hisim represented a Nepalese National in four-week, three-co-defendant trial in 2013. His client was charged with Attempted Murder. Translators were used to translate for the Iraqi victim and the Nepalese defendants. Every question and every answer was filtered through the two different translators and finally into English for the jury's consideration. The jury was unable to reach a verdict on any of the counts. Mr. Hisim was able to convince the prosecution to dismiss all charges before a second trial. Mr. Hisim's client, who had been detained for over a year, was overjoyed and finally able to celebrate with his family his renewed dream to become a United States citizen.

In Mr. Hisim's twenty-two years with the Baltimore City State's Attorney's Office, he handled well over fifty homicide cases, many of them high publicity cases with complex evidentiary issues. Mr. Hisim supervised and taught other Assistant State's Attorneys as a team captain in the trial and "F.I.V.E."units. He was the trial coordinator in the General Felony unit. Mr. Hisim was also head of the training unit as the Director of Education, Training, and Legal Research. Mr. Hisim taught ethics, cross-examination techniques, and DNA evidence at the National Center for District Attorneys in South Carolina and at the Md. State's Attorneys' Association new Assistant State's Attorney program. Mr. Hisim also lectured at various colleges and high schools. Mr. Hisim also represented the Baltimore City State's Attorney's Office at various bar and rules committees.
Mr. Hisim graduated from the University of Baltimore School of Law in December of 1984.
