  • Serious drug offenses
  • Misdemeanors

Even where Ms. Pasqualini was not trial counsel in a sex offense case, she works to defend people against being classified as a Sexually Violent Predator at sentencing.

Criminal Defense Experience in Law School

Ms. Pasqualini cares deeply about her clients and works hard to achieve favorable results for them. As a law student at the University of Maryland School of Law, Ms. Pasqualini was one of the leaders of a student group which helped to secure the release of a wrongly convicted prisoner, Walter Arvinger, who had spent 34 years incarcerated for a murder he did not commit.

In recognition of her efforts, Ms. Pasqualini was awarded the Martin Luther King, Jr. Diversity Recognition Award from the University of Maryland. She was also featured along with other team members on "All Things Considered" hosted by Robert Seigel on National Public Radio. You can hear her interview here.

Learn About Her Success

5 / 5 stars
Elisabeth, You are the best! I can't express how upset I was when I discovered that my builder committed fraud and lied to me about the quality and condition of my new house. It was a huge investment for me and he put me in a bad financial situation. I was cautiously hopeful when you told me you could help. When you got me a judgment for $130,000 plus- three times the amount of my damages- I was amazed! Thanks so much for all of your hard work and dedication. You really did make a "federal case" of my situation! With the money you won for me, I can finally enjoy my home.
