Protecting Your Rights

I am attorney Gary S. Bernstein, and I leverage my background as a former Assistant State’s Attorney for Baltimore City with my experience working as a defense attorney for more than 40 years to provide my clients with thoroughly strategized representation. Having experience working on the other side of the courtroom gives me a unique perspective that helps me prepare each case I take to trial.


I will never settle for a plea deal if going to court is in your best interests because my goal is simple: To secure the best possible outcome for every client.

A Personalized And Tenacious Approach To Each Case

Experience You Can Trust

If you have been charged with a DUI or another criminal offense, working with a highly skilled, highly trained defense lawyer can mean the difference between having the charges against you reduced or dropped and seeing your future ruined by a criminal conviction, jail time or the loss of your driving privileges and other rights.

I have been practicing criminal law for nearly four decades and in that time I have garnered an impressive record of success, I am a sought-after lecturer on DUI defense throughout Maryland; I am well-respected by other attorneys, judges, prosecutors and law enforcement professionals; and I have written books about criminal practice and procedures, in addition to teaching criminal defense education courses to other attorneys. I’m honored to hold several distinctions within the legal community as well, including AV rating through Martindale-Hubbell*, selected every year since 2007 to the Super Lawyers list, and named Best Lawyers in America every year since 2008.
