Ever since we opened our doors, we have taken pride in extending our family to include our clients. Every client we have represented over the years has benefited from the complete focus, determination, and skill of DuBoff& Associates, Chartered.

Do not delay if you or a loved one has a legal matter in the state of Maryland and requires the services of a personal injury, auto accident, criminal defense, or DUI/DWI law firm.

Your safety and well-being are our top concerns. If you are seriously injured, it is our priority to make sure that you get the medical attention you need from a doctor in whom we have complete confidence. We do our best to adapt to your needs, coming to you if you cannot come to us. You need compassion and care at a time like this; at DuBoff& Associates, Chartered, we will treat you with both, as we would our family.

A History of Excellent Service, Beginning with Our Founder

In 1981, Joel DuBoff hung out his shingle as the president and founder of DuBoff& Associates, Chartered. Bringing with him years of experience as a member of the U.S. Army Legal Unit and Assistant U.S. Attorney, as well as his education from the National Law Center of the George Washington University law school, he quickly earned an outstanding reputation as a trial attorney with an aggressive zeal for every one of his clients.

This dedication did not vanish at the courtroom door. Joel also earned a reputation as a lawyer who cares, showing exceptional compassion and understanding for his clients during every phase of the legal process.

Over the years, DuBoff& Associates, Chartered has grown in size and reputation. Our attorneys currently bring more than 50 years of combined experience in our main practice areas: personal injury and criminal defense. When we say that we will fight for you, we mean it. We have a reputation of fighting for our clients, taking the other side to court if necessary. But we don’t just fight for our clients; we fight well, and we fight hard. We are real trial lawyers.

But then above all, we have grown in our commitment to the original mission of our founder. We are the law firm that cares—and as a result, we have forged lifelong relationships with clients and the communities we serve.

Our Clients Are Our Family

We are dedicated to representing accident victims and fighting to recover the full compensation they deserve. If your accident seemed relatively minor, you may not think that you need legal representation. Your injuries may not be visible on the surface. However, just because you cannot see them does not mean they are not there. Many times, the repercussions of an accident are felt but not seen.

It can be particularly difficult to determine the extent of your injuries after an auto accident. Those involved in minor collisions with little-to-no surface-level impacts can sustain just as many injuries as victims of major crashes—if not more. Many of these injuries take time to surface; what seemed like a minor fender bender can turn into a lifetime of issues and draining medical bills.

At DuBoff & Associates, Chartered, we have the experience that you need in order to recover the compensation that you deserve. If you have been injured in an auto accident due to someone else’s negligence, the law is on your side. The other side can and should be brought to justice by paying you for the injuries and other damages they caused you. We can build an aggressive case for you, preparing it for trial from the moment you say, “Go.” If we need to take a case to trial, our competitors know that we will, and they know that we will fight hard. As one of our clients, you become a part of our family, and we will fight for you with the very passion and compassion that our families instill in us.

We also have successfully recovered compensation for victims of other accidents that, although not as common, can be equally as life-changing as car and other auto accidents. We have seen victims of premises liability cases, such as slip and fall injuriesand injuries sustained from improper premises security. We have fought for clients who have been up against corporate giants, such as in medical malpractice and wrongful death cases. We are not afraid to take on the cases that others shy away from.

Criminal Defense for Maryland and Washington, D.C.

At DuBoff & Associates, Chartered, our clients are our family, and we fight for them because we care. If you or a loved one is facing a criminal charge in the state of Maryland, this is quite possibly the most serious issue you will face in your lifetime. A criminal charge is one that the government has brought against you, unlike a civil charge, which is brought against you by a private citizen. The government takes these charges very seriously and will fight you with a vengeance. You need someone who is not afraid to put up his or her fists for you.

We have represented clients who have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), various drug offensestheft crimessex crimesweapons crimesjuvenile crimesdomestic crimes, and traffic violations. We are equipped to take your case to trial and do everything we can to get your criminal charges reduced or dropped altogether. Criminal convictions can drastically change your life from here on out; it is our goal to not let this happen.

If you have been charged with a crime in Maryland or Washington, D.C., contact the criminal defense lawyers at DuBoff & Associates, Chartered. When you call, you will speak with an attorney. We make it a priority to be as accessible as possible for our clients. This begins with the initial call and doesn’t end with the conclusion of your case; our clients are our clients for life, and we encourage them to keep in contact with any questions or concerns they may have.
