Attorney Profile

A partner at Herndon and O’Meara: Attorneys at Law, Elisabeth Herndon focuses her practice on criminal defense matters. From the firm's office in Baltimore, she provides compassionate and astute representation to people throughout the greater metropolitan area and across the state of Maryland who have been charged with the commission of misdemeanor or felony offenses. Ms. Herndon is admitted to practice before all Maryland state courts.

When meeting with her clients, Ms. Herndon discusses their cases with them in detail and outlines the different strategies that might be available to utilize in their defense. No matter how serious the charges are, she believes that the ultimate choice as to how to proceed is up to them, and thus she will not pressure them into signing off on a plea bargain if the decision is made to mount a defense in front of a judge or jury. Prior to co-founding Herndon and O’Meara: Attorneys at Law in August 2018, Ms. Herndon was an attorney at another Baltimore-area firm, and in addition to her criminal defense work, she handled personal injury and wrongful death litigation, representing clients who had been harmed by the negligence or recklessness of other persons or entities.

Highly regarded by her fellow professionals for both her successful track record and her ethical approach to what are often emotionally charged cases, Ms. Herndon has been given a "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo. She has also been named as one of the Top 10 Criminal Defense Attorneys Under Age 40, as compiled by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
