Why Hire Loren R. Villa to Represent You?

Loren R. Villa has distinguished herself as a lawyer who aggressively defends the rights of individuals accused of crimes in Maryland.  When it comes to defending yourself against criminal charges, you need to know that the criminal defense lawyer you choose will fiercely fight on your behalf, both inside and outside of a court room.

Whether the charges being made against you are for DUI, felonies or misdemeanors, I have the experience necessary to help you fight the charges and protect your future. As your lawyer, I will do everything in my power to represent you skillfully so you can move on with your life. I understand that this is a difficult time for you, which is why I treat all my clients with the respect they need and deserve. 

During my 9 years as Assistant Public Defender in Washington County, I have appeared almost daily in front of Washington County Circuit Court and District Court Judges and have also dealt with the Washington County State’s Attorney’s Office to attain the best possible outcomes for my clients.

I also have extensive experience in Juvenile Matters, appearing before the Circuit Court, representing juveniles in waiver and transfer hearings as well as adjudications and dispositions. In addition, I have valuable contacts within the Department of Juvenile Services.  As a result, I have been recognized by the Maryland Office of the Public Defender as invaluable advocate for the youth I represent. 

Prior to becoming an Assistant Public Defender in Washington County, I was in private practice in Frederick County, representing clients primarily in civil matters including Divorces and custody matters in Frederick County Circuit and District Courts.  I also represented clients at administrative hearings at the Motor Vehicle Administration.  Before working as an associate for Richard P. Bricken, I was a Law Clerk to the Honorable John H. Tisdale, Frederick County Circuit Court Judge, for 2 years.

My fees are affordable and reasonable.  In criminal, traffic or juvenile cases, my fees are set a flat fee basis with very few exceptions. I will also work with clients regarding a payment plan on a case by case basis.  Fees in civil cases vary and may be set an hourly rate.
