Attorney Profile

Focusing his practice primarily on criminal defense, James F. Brewer II is the owner of his own firm located in Westminster, Maryland. Providing dedicated representation to clients throughout the greater Baltimore metropolitan area and other parts of the state, he assists people who have been charged with misdemeanor or felony offenses. The types of cases that Mr. Brewer has handled have included traffic violations, driving under the influence of alcohol, sex offenses, assault and battery, homicide, and drug possession and distribution. His background also includes obtaining protective orders on behalf of victims of domestic violence as well as divorce, adoption, the preparation and review of prenuptial agreements, and other family law matters.

Prior to entering private practice, Mr. Brewer spent nearly 20 years as an assistant state's attorney, and this experience has helped him anticipate the types of strategies he now encounters in his representation of defendants. He has been able to obtain numerous acquittals in his jury and bench trials, while in other cases, he has negotiated favorable plea agreements with the prosecutor. Before becoming an attorney, Mr. Brewer served as a commissioned officer with the United States Army. He is admitted to practice before all Maryland state courts.

As an undergraduate, Mr. Brewer attended what is now known as Loyola University Maryland, and he received a Bachelor of Arts in 1968. When he decided to pursue a legal education, he enrolled at the University of Baltimore School of Law, and he was subsequently awarded his Juris Doctor in 1978. A past president of the Bar Association of Carroll County, Mr. Brewer is active in his community as well, and in that regard, he is a member of the Community Foundation of Carroll County.
