Maryland Criminal Defense Attorney
Maryland criminal lawyer Andrew V. Jezic is the lead partner of Jezic & Moyse LLC. and heads our criminal defense department. He was selected to the exclusive list of best Maryland criminal lawyers by Washingtonian magazine from 2011 to 2017. In 2016, 2017 and 2018 Super Lawyers magazine recognized Mr. Jezic as one of the best 100 lawyers in all of Maryland. Mr. Jezic is a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers.
He is also a co-author of the widely respected book, Maryland Law of Confessions, first published in 2003 by Thompson/West and now in its fourteenth edition.
In 2010 and 2011, Maryland criminal lawyer Andrew V. Jezic convinced judges in two separate cases to vacate his clients’ guilty pleas entered with another criminal defense lawyer, whereby both clients would have been deported after serving lengthy prison sentences. In both cases, Mr. Jezic’s clients were eventually exonerated of all felony charges after jury trials and are now free of any threat of jail or deportation.
In one of those cases in 2011, State v. Cuque, the jury acquitted Mr. Jezic’s client of all charges despite having viewed a videotaped confession by the client.
In 2015, a jury watched a videotaped interrogation of Mr. Jezic’s client, during which the client all but confessed to the crime. After a six-day trial, the jury rendered a surprising verdict, acquitting Mr. Jezic’ client of all charges. (See article)
Mr. Jezic’s most celebrated case is the successful defense of Gary James Smith, in the “Army-Ranger murder case” – one of the most high-profile cases in Montgomery County in the past several decades. Mr. Smith was a Sergeant in the Army Rangers, having served in five combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was accused of murdering his fellow Army Ranger, a close friend and roommate in Gaithersburg. After two lengthy trials, and two appellate reversals, Mr. Smith successfully ended his case with time served and unsupervised probation, eight years after the original arrest. Mr. Smith now is a law clerk in the law offices of Jezic & Moyse, working on Mr. Jezic’s various murder cases. (See many articles from 2006 to 2015, and see hour-long show about Gary Smith on Dr. Oz.).
In 2010, prosecutors in two separate jurisdictions dismissed the cases against Mr. Jezic’s clients, after the jury in each case had heard Mr. Jezic’s winning cross-examination of the complaining witnesses. Remarkably, yet again in 2012, prosecutors dismissed all murder charges on the third day of a jury trial in Prince Georges County, after the Jezic team’s vigorous investigation and opening defense. Read Washington post article.
In 2014 Mr. Jezic was a featured speaker for the fourth year in a row at the Alan Goldstein Criminal Law Lecture in Prince George’s County, the premier criminal law seminar for defense lawyers in Maryland.
In 2010 Mr. Jezic was a featured speaker at the Annual Law Day seminar in Montgomery County, and was asked to speak at a Cross-Examination Workshop for the Montgomery County Bar’s Criminal Law Section in October, 2008, as well as at the Office of the Public Defender’s State-Wide Training Seminar in May, 2008.
Maryland criminal lawyer Ahmet Mr. Hisim has had nearly 150 jury trials in his career, 50 of which have been murder trials.
As a defense lawyer, he has achieved a “not guilty” verdict in many serious jury trials, as well as complete jury acquittals for four different clients charged with murder.
Mr. Hisim’s first criminal trial as a criminal lawyer was a case of Attempted Murder in Montgomery County Circuit Court. The client had been previously convicted with other counsel, and his case was remanded to circuit court for a new trial. The case ended after a week-long trial with a total acquittal, causing the State’s eyewitness to fall from his chair as the verdict was read in the courtroom. (See the article from the Washington Post about this stunning acquittal).
