Trespassing in Maryland

Types of Criminal Trespass

There are two main types of trespassing crimes in Maryland: trespass on posted property and trespass on private property.

Trespassing on posted property means entering the property that is posted conspicuously against trespassing, often in the form of signs on the fences, posts at each entrance, or even markings on trees. By contrast, trespassing on private property means entering, crossing over, or remaining on another person’s property without the owner’s knowledge.

Trespassing is considered a misdemeanor, punishable by a jail term of up to 90 days and a maximum $500 fine. Additionally, a person accused of trespassing could also face burglary charges.

  • Mark is the man!

    “Mark took care of all the heavy lifting of my speeding ticket. While going to school in Maryland, I attained a speeding ticket in a school zone. Soon after I moved back to my home state of New York, and lost the ticket during the move. Soon enough I was notified my license was going to be suspended in the state of New York as well as Maryland. Mark took care of the issue over the phone with me , went to court for me against a tough judge and the police officer had shown up. Mark got it to a probation before judgement and I actually got a refund on the fine I paid to the court! Mark is the man! If I ever have another traffic issue in the state of MD. (fingers crossed), Mark will be my first phone call!”

  • "Quick on his feet"

    “Mark represented my son in traffic court and then at an MVA hearing. Prior to my sons name being called at traffic court, he asked to speak to the State Trooper outside the court room, and struck a deal right then and there. He was both professional and very knowledgeable about MVA laws. Both instances we had very good outcomes. Hopefully, this will be the last time we need him, however, I highly recommend Mark!!!!”

  • Made a great difference in our lives!

    “Following numerous frustrating experiences with Maryland State bureaucracies, we engaged Mark's services to resolve an important identity issue. Mark worked with the Assistant State's Attorney responsible for the state agency involved, and was able to resolve our issue within 6 weeks. We had been trying to solve this problem for over a year! Thanks Mark, for helping us with this important issue, which made a great difference in our lives!”
