Colleen defended me in a case where I had 5 charges for Assault on a Police Officer and resisting arrest. I had never been in trouble before and felt like I didn’t deserve these charges. On my very first day in court, she was there before I got there, and by the time the day was over, 4 of the 5 charges against me had been dropped. Eventually, I received a Probation before Judgment for a lesser charge. I would have been happy with that, but then Colleen came back and walked me step by step through the process of getting the case off my record. Eventually, it will be as if this case never happened at all. I was so impressed by Colleen’s work, I believe I didn’t pay enough. – A Client for an Assault Case
I was charged with DUI in Anne Arundel County by a MTA officer. When I was first charged with the offense, I was nervous about losing my job. Colleen was very helpful and reassured me that I would most likely be ok and not to be too apprehensive with telling my employer. Throughout the process,Colleen was extremely helpful. My judgment was almost exactly as Colleen predicted. She was able to read through my paperwork and walk me through the process on the first day I met her. The court appearance went exactly as Colleen laid out for me. She was able to get the judge to offer me a Probation Before Judgment with 18 months probation. She is very thorough and makes sure she has covered every aspect of the paperwork to make sure she can argue the case to the best interest of her client. – A DUI Client
When faced with a court date for driving on a suspended license in Montgomery County, I chose criminal defense attorney Colleen Kirby to represent me. In the end all my charges were dropped. Since this was my first time in court I had many questions through out the process and Ms. Kirby was consistently available to answer any and all of the them. i highly recommend her as legal counsel. – A Client for a Criminal Case
Being matched with Colleen Kirby for legal representation was one of the best things to happen to me this year. I was facing some very serious consequences in a somewhat complicated case that had a lot of age to it, and she helped me in my efforts to resolve the issues so that I could finally put them behind me. Colleen has such a personal approach that I felt like I’d known her for a while. Often-times there is a stigma attached to criminal defense lawyers suggesting a lack of compassion and a tendency to only establish goals of “winning.” However, it’s pretty clear to me that Colleen does not fall into this stereotype. Not only was she extremely thorough in learning about the circumstances surrounding my case so that she could advocate for me in the courtroom, she also extended a warmth and friendliness in her correspondence with me to forge a comfortable and amicable lawyer-client relationship–something I definitely didn’t expect but gladly welcomed. I feel like I have a true professional friend in Colleen and my life is literally better for having known her. – A Client for a Criminal Case
If you are reading this you have the right attorney! Colleen Kirby is no halfhearted attorney and is not only in the field for the money. This woman knows how to get the right facts out that the judge wants to hear. I was far from being guilty of a second degree assault of a security guard who turned out to be a Howard county police officer. I was looking at prison and fines, both in large numbers. I spoke with attorney after attorney. Attorney Kirby’s cost was more than most I spoke with, but worth more than I could have ever paid. She was spot on in court, saying all the right words. We call attorney’s mouth pieces and this woman will tie them up and feed them back their own words. I was worried the entire time about what was going to happen. Attorney Kirby has a lot going on and I was worried if she had the time, is she going to be focused on my case, I even questioned if a woman was going to be the right person for me in this case. Well, let me tell you without any doubt Colleen Kirby was hired by her firm because she has the smarts and the guts to stand up for you. She has the respect of the court and her colleagues. If you hire Colleen Kirby you will have hired one of Baltimore’s finest attorneys. – Patti S.
Colleen Kirby IS THE BEST LAWYER you can probably get in Maryland I was facing a reckless driving ticket, negligent driving, driving off roadway while passing other vehicle, and driving above posted speed limits, adding up a total of 12 points on my license; After searching for many lawyers Colleen seemed like a good choice and I got a free consultation at her office in the first couple words I knew she was the best choice!! Weeks before the case Colleen made me take a drivers improvement course and obtain my clean past driving record form the MVA. When we got called up for a trial and my officer tried her best to prove me guilty and i thought i was done for however when Colleen spoke to the judge the whole situation was changed and I felt like I was in great hands within 5 minutes Colleen proved to the judge that the officer hadn’t paced me right and what I did at the time was to prevent an accident not to be reckless the officer was still stubborn on me getting a ticket so Colleen gave evidence such as pictures of the roadway and used her great knowledge of Traffic Laws to explain to the Judge the situation after hearing both stories the judge smiled and said “not guilty” All my tickets were thrown out!!!! this all happened in less than 5 minutes I was so relieved to hear those two words from the judge while i saw the officer storm out of the room in fury. The officer knew she never stood a chance after Colleen’s testifying all in all Colleen Kirby helped me avoid a 12 point ticket and throughout all our meetings she mad me confident and at times I would forget that she was a lawyer and more like she was a good friend I’ve known for years extremely precise and accurate in the court room very professional lawyer ; I would recommend anyone with any charges whatsoever to Contact Colleen because it will probably be the best decision you can make for yourself for a very fair price and if I ever need representation again I will not even THINK of considering anyone but Colleen!!! – Zaib C.
Colleen Kirby Attorney at Law. I couldn’t have done it without Colleen Kirby! I was visiting relatives in Baltimore County a few months ago. A policeman caught me fair and square in a radar trap going very much over the speed limit and I was given a rather large fine and 2 points for the high speed. I was worried more about the 2 points then the fine because I know how points impact the price of car insurance. The policeman told me, since I had a clean driving record up until now, that I might want to consider going to court to see if I could have the points removed so that it would not be on my license. I thought that was a very good idea, but my next thought was, how in the world am I going to be able to go to court in Baltimore when I live in Florida. I knew this would be very costly because I recently started a new job and I knew I wouldn’t be paid for the time I would have to miss, not to mention the cost of flights and another rental car. So instead I contacted Price Benowitz and they referred me to Colleen Kirby. Calling Colleen was the best thing I could have done. She was so nice and told me that she would represent me in court, which made me feel so relieved. She kept me in the loop with everything she was doing either by phone calls or emails, which kept me from stressing out. I could concentrate on my new job instead. She advised me to pay the fine before going to court, which I did. She also mentioned that I might want to consider taking an online safety course which she thought would help my case. So I did that. I knew Colleen knew what she was doing and that she had a lot of experience with these types of cases and I felt that Colleen would not steer me wrong. The day of the trial she was there to represent me and immediately after it was over she contacted me to let me know the good news that I received a PBJ, which means there would be no points and I didn’t owe any additional money since I prepaid the fine. I can honestly say that calling Colleen and having her represent me was the best thing I could have ever done and I would recommend her, without any reservation what so ever, to anyone in need of her help. Thank you again Colleen for everything you did for me. – Neal D.
Colleen the Best.. I had a criminal charge brought against me and I was so terrified. Being a foreigner and the fact that the outcome could have devastating consequences on my immigration status, I contacted Colleen Kirby. She listened to me, got all the facts and proceeded to defend me. As the trial date got really close, I got so scared but Colleen kept reassuring me she was working on my case behind the scene and putting my best interest at heart. On trial day when my case was called, it only lasted like 30 seconds and the prosecutor dropped all charges and I went out a free man again. I was so excited that I picked Colleen up in court, and swong her around in a circular manner! She is a class act and the best at what she does. In my opinion, Colleen Kirby for President 2012!!! – Abayomi D.

Best Criminal Defense Attorney in Baltimore/ Howard County. I was given a citation as a result of driving on a suspended license. I was unaware that my license was suspended.
I found Colleen Kirby to be my Criminal Defense Attorney. She had a great reputation in both Baltimore and Howard County so I was comfortable with my decision.
Ms. Kirby counselled me from the moment I hired her through the court date. Ms. Kirby and I went back and forth with the State Prosecutor and we unhappy with the plea so we took the case to trial. Ms. Kirby won the trial and I was found Not Guilty.
I was very happy with Ms. Kirby’s counsel and would recommend her to help anyone facing criminal defense cases in either Baltimore or Howard County. – A Client for a Criminal Case
Best MD Lawyer is Colleen Kirby at 443-680-5469. Colleen Kirby is by far one of the best lawyers in Maryland. She represented me in Howard County for Driving on a Suspended License.
Every other lawyer I talked to said that the best case scenario was probation before judgement, but Colleen Kirby told me to give her a couple days to see what she could do. After about 2 days she called me up and said that it was my choice whether I wanted to go to court or not because she talked to the D.A, and the D.A. agreed to dismiss all charges against me.
Colleen knows how to talk and knows all the right people. SHE WILL HELP YOU.
Another really cool thing about her is that she talks like a person, not like a lawyer. She will break everything down into layman’s terms so that you feel comfortable and understand what is going on. That is another great trait that I love about Colleen.
If ever have trouble again will I use her? Most Definitely.
Thanks Colleen You are Awesome. – Jalvini A.
Committed and Experienced. In late May I was cited for a HOV violation in Rockville, MD. As soon as I got the ticket I knew this was going to impact my Class A CDL license and I am currently from Florida, so going to court for this kind of ticket was a huge concern also. During my first search on the Internet for the best traffic defense attorneys in the DC area, the firm Price Benowitz was top of the list. Shortly after reading the firm’s site for more information, I spoke with a staff member who referred me to Colleen Kirby as the attorney within the firm to handle this case. Colleen contacted me almost immediately and seemed very eager to work with me. From a business stand point I think Colleen was very professional, competent and knowledgeable person. She not only appeared on my behalf, but kept the points off my CDL license. Having just one point on my CDL would have put me at a great disadvantage in the competitive job market today. I simply don’t think it gets any better than her. TY! – A Client with CDL Cases
Well Spoken And Concise. I was charged with DUI in Anne Arundel by a MTA officer. I had a connection in the Howard County police department who referred me to Colleen. When I was first charged, I was scared I would lose my job. Colleen was very helpful and reassuring, telling me that everything would be okay and not to worry about informing my employer. On Colleen’s advice, I began alcohol treatment prior to my court date because she believed it would give the judge more reason to believe that I am taking this offense seriously. And she was right. Throughout the process, Colleen was extremely accessible. If I needed to speak with her she would get back to me within 10-30 minutes. My judgement was almost exactly as Colleen predicted. She was able to read through my paperwork and walk me through the process on the first day I met her. Based on the charges against me, she was able to indicate what the outcome would most likely be as long as we had a reasonable judge. On my courtdate, everything went exactly as Colleen had discussed. She was able to get the judge to offer me a PBJ, which will not affect my job and will have no impact on my insurance as long as there are no other issues prior to the end of my probation. Colleen was a fantastic attorney. She is very well spoken and concise compared to other representation I have seen. She is very thorough and makes sure she has covered every aspect of the paperwork to make sure she can argue the case to the best interest of her client. – Tobrey F.
