The Law Office of Raymond F. Anthracite

I have kept hundreds of people just like you out of jail, including people in seemingly impossible situations. I know how important it is that your lawyer be there for you. I provide personal attention to everyone that I represent.

Firm Overview

Every case is a big case when you are the defendant. I know how important it is to keep every violation off your record. Even minor violations can have a disproportionate impact when you are trying to get a job or maintain a license that you need to work. If you are not a citizen, you may also be excluded or deported. As your lawyer, I'll help you deal with your problems in and out of court, from the moment you talk to me to the moment your case is over. If possible, I'll also help you get your record expunged, or help you overturn your past convictions.
While your court date may be months in the future, the other consequences of the charges against you may take effect in only days. Whether your case is big or small, I can provide evening and weekend appointments to handle matters on short notice.

My office is conveniently located just a few blocks from the Rockville Metro Station, across from the District Court in Rockville for Montgomery County, and I handle cases all over Maryland.

Contact me today at (301) 556-8709 so that we can get to work on your case.
