Attorney Kenneth Grote

Criminal Defense Attorneyundefined

My interest in criminal law began when I clerked for the Hon. Joseph McCurdy in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City. There, we sat on a felony criminal docket and I was able to observe numerous serious felony criminal jury trials.

I became a prosecutor in August of 2006 in Talbot County. After 3 & 1/2 years on the Eastern Shore, I moved to Baltimore County and joined the State's Attorney's Office in Carroll County. There, I prosecuted nearly every type of traffic and criminal case, misdemeanors, and felonies. I completed Top Gun training for law enforcement, am certified by Maryland State Police in Advanced Collision Investigations, and assisted law enforcement on search warrants, sobriety checkpoints, and warrant sweeps.

Prior to law school, I worked for a large DC law firm and also spent time at a small firm in San Diego. I grew up in the Midwest, graduated from the University of Iowa with degrees in History and Political Science. I graduated cum laude from the University of Baltimore in 2004 and was Editor and Chief of the Environmental Law Journal. Before entering my third year of law school I was fortunate to intern with the Army JAG in Baumholder Germany for 10 weeks. There, I assisted attorneys in helping soldiers organizing their affairs prior to going to Iraq. Now, I enjoy playing all types of sports, hiking, and woodworking, but mostly being with my wife and three small children.

  • Thank you for my new beginning

    “I was facing 13 violations of my probation. Mark put my mind at ease and just made me feel like it was going to be ok. He definitely put in the work before the court date so we almost knew what to expect. And he literally made it ALL go away. Thanks to Mark I can marry my Fiance without having anything hanging over my head, and we can make a fresh start in life!!! I cannot thank Mark enough, he gave me the freedom I needed. Mark will not do wrong by you, so hire him if you want a fighting chance.”

  • Outstanding legal representation!

    “I was recently rear-ended on the beltway by a disbarred attorney. This person claimed that I was at fault due to road rage. The state trooper sided with the person who struck me. This resulted in 6 citations, 9 points on my driving record and $1000 in fines. If the charges would have stuck, I would have lost my license. My entire family would have been severely affected not to mention my livelihood. Thank God I chose Mark Scheuerman to represent me in court! Mark did an outstanding job examining all aspects of the charges, as well as the facts of the case. Having never experienced being in a courtroom before, he went above and beyond to prepare me for the trial. The result of his hard work was a complete acquittal. I can't speak highly enough of Attorney Scheuerman.”

  • Phenomenal Lawyer that produces the best results for his clients. Worth every penny!

    “Mark Scheurman is one of the best lawyers to have in your corner in tough situations. He wants the best for his clients and produces great results. Under his representation, he always assured me that I was in good hands no matter how much I worried. He listened to me kept me well informed of my rights and options. Long story short I was given 13 citations by a cop after my car was crashed into the sidewalk even though I was not the driver. The citations alone were enough to revoke my license and included $1,300 worth of fines; furthermore, 2 of the citations carried a jail sentence up to 2 months each. I have never been in trouble before and never experienced any of this, but Mark handled everything. The day before court he called and told me he convinced the prosecutor to dismiss all13 citations because she did not have enough evidence to prove I was the driver and the only thing I had to was show up to court. Next thing I know, in court, the prosecutor dismissed every single citation as well as all the fines and I left with a clear record and not having to pay a penny. I'm so grateful for Mark because he really saved me from a bad situation that I was ready to plead guilty to even though I didn't do it because I was scared of the consequences if I didn't win. But he told me he would never let me plead guilty to something I didn't do and he handled it. He really is a blessing and I' m thankful for him and his representation. He knows the law and has a real passion for helping his clients. Thanks again Mark!!!!!! You are greatly appreciated.”

  • YOU ROCK MARK!

    “I just wanted to thank you from the "bottom of my heart", you are an incredible, amazing person, and a powerfully skilled Attorney. Words can't even describe how important that outcome meant to me, I hope to go forward with my life, I realize, that would have NOT been possible, 🙏without God and your presence on that day. This whole situation has altered my life forever, my career as a RN and a future Psychologist, was all in your hands that day, and you wheeled it, you kept your word...as promised. You remained honest with me about my case...and that is priceless. "Some mistakes take on the form of eternity". I am a little tearful writing this, forgive me if I miss words. You where blessed by God, with a team of Attorneys that found you Mark, you are genuine, stay that way! I was gifted with reading people, in my journey through I came across some intense deceivers, especially, some that I even treat. I saw compassion during our eye to eye contact, and I knew I could trust you. I know you meet many, of unfavorable in character, but your gift to decipher is an attribute, one that becomes of you. My father loved this quote by Aristotle, he passed in 2005, I thought...it fits you. I shall pass on your name for years to come, even though this is one incident in my life that I would like to forget! Thank you again, and God Bless you and your family. Mark, you are building a responsible team of Attorneys, Keep up the great work! YOU ROCK MARK!”
