Welcome to the Jannace Law Office
Welcome to the Law Office of Charles Jannace. This is the home page of one of the finest and technologically advanced boutique law offices on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. We are centrally located in beautiful Salisbury, Wicomico County, Maryland, however, we provide legal services to the entire Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland including Somerset, Worcester, Dorchester, Talbot, and Caroline Counties. You will find information about our services on these pages.
We are a general practice law firm with an emphasis on litigation (jury and non-jury) in all State and Federal Courts in the State of Maryland. However, we center our practice on criminal defense, traffic violations, juvenile hearings and proceedings, personal injury/wrongful death, domestic relations (divorce, custody, adoption, guardianship), bankruptcy (Chapter 7) and small business (formation, development, and contractual) cases.
We believe that there are distinct advantages in hiring a sole practitioner over a larger law firm. The most important advantage is that with this office you will always receive one-on-one attention to your case. Your case will never be assigned to another attorney whom you have never met or for whom you have not paid. Mr. Jannace encourages clients to stay in touch and ask questions by utilizing available technologies that make communication easier. Copies of all documents that are received or generated by our office will be emailed to you right away so you know what is going on at all times. Mr. Jannace also frequently monitors and responds to emails after hours especially as your case nears a trial or hearing. With this office you don't have to wait for business hours to get an answer to a question or know how to respond in an urgent situation. Another advantage is that our overhead is lower than larger law firms. Our hourly rates and flat fees are lower than larger large firms because we can charge less. We shut off the lights at night, and we aren't looking for your case to fund our next vacation.
Mr. Jannace practiced seven years in New York before moving to the Eastern Shore in 1990. There are many good reasons why he has maintained many repeat clients in that time and has developed a solid reputation among his peers, the Courts, as well as his clients. Sometimes even parties who have lost a case to one of Mr. Jannace's clients will try months or years later to see if he is able to take another one of their cases. Ask around and you'll see what we mean.
