Case Evaluation
Unquestionable First Choice Mr. Masella is the embodiment of professionalism. My DUI case was particularly difficult and it would have been easy for him to simply turn me away. He did not, and I will be eternally grateful for his superior representation. For as long as I lived in Columbia, I have recommended him to every person who has ever told me that they needed a criminal lawyer, because there is simply no other option if you want the best possible results. Because of him, I was inspired to pursue a career in law, and will be receiving a juris doctor degree from the University of Maryland in only a few short weeks. I hope I can one day serve clients the same way he served me.
