Attorney Profile

Attorney Reginald Bours, III, is a partner with Bours & Lucero, LLC, law firm in Rockville, Maryland. A top-rated, award-winning trial lawyer with more than 51 years of total legal experience, Mr. Bours is a highly versatile attorney who provides exceptional counsel and support to clients across the state who have legal needs involving any of the following:

·       Criminal defense

·       Traffic and DUI defense

·       Juvenile law

·       Family law and divorce, including child custody and support, visitation, and other related matters

Prior to establishing his own private practice, Mr. Bours began his legal career with the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office, where he ultimately served as deputy state's attorney. As a prosecutor, he handled hundreds of criminal cases and gained invaluable insight into the criminal justice system, which only bolsters his effectiveness when devising the best defense strategies possible for the accused.

Since entering private practice in 1974, he has achieved a long record of successful results for clients in state and federal courts throughout his region who stand accused or are under investigation for virtually every type of felony or misdemeanor offense. Among his most notable successes, he helped overturn a life sentence for a young man convicted of murder on appeal, which resulted in a new trial and much-reduced sentence.

In addition, Mr. Bours has become a recognized leader in cases involving sexual offenses of all kinds, and even when not able to secure an acquittal for his clients, he continues to advocate on their behalf to ensure fair sentencing and treatment. He also was successful in having a client removed from the sex offender registry due to government officials wrongfully increasing the time the man would serve.

A 1964 graduate of George Washington University, Mr. Bours obtained his Juris Doctor from the University of Baltimore School of Law in 1968. He has earned an AV Preeminent peer review rating* from Martindale-Hubbell along with many other accolades from his peers, and he has received "Superb" client ratings on Avvo.

Mr. Bours is a fellow with the Maryland Bar Foundation, and he serves on the Criminal Law and Practice Section Council of the Maryland State Bar Association. He is also a member of the Maryland Criminal Defense Attorneys' Association and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, among his other professional affiliations.
