Experienced Criminal Law Attorney in Harford County, Maryland


At Henninger & Henninger, LLC, we understand that when you have been arrested for a criminal offense in Maryland, the potential consequences can have a substantial impact on the rest of your life. In addition to potential incarceration and expensive fines, a criminal conviction can result in the suspension of your driver’s license, increased insurance rates and a permanent criminal record, which can make it more difficult to find employment, rent an apartment or obtain a professional license.

For more than 15 years, he has worked closely with his clients to understand their unique and individual challenges and to arrive at the best possible defense for their situation.

Bel Air Criminal Defense and DUI Lawyer

Our firm represents clients in a wide range of criminal law offenses in Maryland, including:

  • Traffic Violations:
    Although some traffic violations, such as speeding tickets, may seem minor, they can still raise your insurance rates and have a negative impact on your driving record. For minor traffic violations, and more serious offenses of reckless driving or DUIs, we can protect your rights.
  • Drug Crimes:
    From simple possession of marijuana to more serious drug charges, Henninger & Henninger, LLC, will aggressively pursue the reduction or dismissal of your charges through negotiation or litigation. We will also defend you against illegal searches and seizures.
  • DUI or DWI Offenses:
    Even first time DUI offenses can carry serious penalties and require experienced representation. In order to ensure that your driving privileges are not suspended prior to your DUI hearing, you must request an MVA hearing within 10 days of the date of the Order of Suspension.
  • Misdemeanor and Felony Offenses:
    In addition, our firm will represent clients on other misdemeanor and felony offenses, including theft, sex offenses, assault and white collar crimes. Attorney Frank Henninger also defends juvenile offenders on a variety of crimes, including underage drinking and driving.
