Attorney Profile

Attorney Reginald W. Bours, III, is a partner with Bours & Lucero, LLC, located in Rockville, Maryland. Widely regarded as one of the top trial lawyers in the region, Mr. Bours focuses his practice primarily on criminal defense, DUI defense and juvenile law; however, he also devotes a portion of his practice to family law and divorce as well as administrative law.

An attorney since 1968, Mr. Bours began his legal career as a prosecutor with the Montgomery County State's Attorney's Office, achieving the position of deputy state’s attorney in 1973. Along with prosecuting virtually every type of criminal case imaginable, Mr. Bours helped train other prosecutors, so he has a unique perspective and invaluable insight into the inner workings of the criminal justice system that enable him to devise the most effective defense strategies possible for his clients.

As a criminal defense attorney, Mr. Bours has helped defend the rights and liberties of thousands of clients since entering private practice in 1974. From relatively minor traffic violations to capital murder, no area of criminal law is beyond his scope, and he has extensive experience handling serious felony cases, such as distribution of controlled substances, first-degree assault, sexual assault, fraud and more.

A 1964 graduate of The George Washington University, Mr. Bours obtained his Juris Doctor from the University of Baltimore School of Law in 1968. The Maryland State Bar Association admitted him to practice that same year, and he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Recognized for his impeccable professionalism and exceptional legal abilities, Mr. Bours holds an AV Preeminent* peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell, and The Washington Post and the Washingtonian magazine have both named him a top 100 lawyer in the community for several years.

Highly active in his legal community, Mr. Bours is a member of the criminal law and practice section of the Maryland State Bar Association, the Maryland Criminal Defense Attorneys' Association and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. He is also a fellow with the Maryland Bar Foundation and serves on the executive committee for the Bar Association of Montgomery County.
