Elisabeth Herndon

Elisabeth Herndon is a Maryland admitted attorney. She enjoys taking on tough criminal defense cases and takes the time to talk to her clients to figure out and then explain the best way to handle the case, all while letting the client make the important decisions that should be theirs to make.

What sets Elisabeth apart from other attorneys is the time and attention she pays to her clients. She makes returning phone calls and emails a priority. If a client is incarcerated, she has no problem making the time to visit them to keep them informed about their case.

Elisabeth is a graduate of New England Law | Boston, at which she received a CALI award in School Governance and Teacher’s Rights and participated in the Lawyering Process clinic with a focus on family law. She attended Towson University and received a bachelors degree in Law and American Civilization with minors in Political Science and American Studies. In her free time, she enjoys painting, writing, and playing kickball.
