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.

  • I felt very confident in his ability to represent me.

    “I contacted Mark via email regarding several traffic violations. He responded that same day and was able to meet with me in person the next evening! Mark is very personable and knowledgeable and I felt very confident in his ability to represent me. He was well prepared for my hearings and was able to secure the best possible outcomes. I will definitely recommend Mark to any of my friends or family needing legal counsel.”

  • "A TRUE WINNER!!!!!!"

    “Words cannot describe alone how Mark saved my life. Mark made me feel at ease and that everything would be ok. He was a constant professional. My advice to everyone is if Mark tells you to do something do it he knows what he is talking about. In court Mark worked magic everything was drooped and now I still have my job. Thank you so much Mark, you truly are a winner.”

  • 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!”

  • Highly recommend!

    “Mark was a great fit for me, as a lawyer. Right from the beginning I felt comfortable with him and he felt confident we could win my case. Mark kept in touch and always returned my calls and emails quickly. He came fully prepared to court and ready for trial, my case was dismissed and my record cleared. I would definitely recommend him for anyone that finds themselves in a similar situation. Thank you!”
