Attorney Profile

Howard Cheris joined the firm in 2007 after 17 years as a private practitioner concentrating in civil and criminal litigation. He is known as one of the finest litigators in the Metro area.   He has tried several cases to verdict before both jury and bench trials.

He has appeared before Maryland's highest court--the Court of Appeals--and successfully argued matters before juries, bench matters, and all forums of criminal litigation.

All clients are offered a free consultation and calls and emails are returned promptly.

Mr. Cheris was raised in New York and attended Emory University before studying law at American University. Having a vast array of experience with both civil and criminal litigation, Mr. Cheris now dedicates his representation to the criminally accused.
