The Passionate Pursuit of Justice, One Case at a Time

Rebecca A. Nitkin

Rebecca NitkinRebecca Nitkin believes in the passionate pursuit of justice for all – one case at a time. She has handled many high-profile criminal defense cases that have been featured on television including “ The O’Reilly Factor,” and “ Nancy Grace.” Her interviewing skills landed her the position as a Legal Analyst on “Fox and Friends,” “Fox News,” “In Session TV,” and all the related shows on In Session/Tru TV, plus CNN, “Russian TV,” “Headline News,” “Uma Pemmaraju of Fox,” etc.

Ms. Nitkin’s legal work has earned her recognition and respect among her legal peers, including an AV® rating, the sole Maryland Criminal Attorney in the Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register of Preeminent Women Lawyers, the 2012 Daily Record Spotlight on Leadership Award, and Super Lawyer listing.


A former social worker in Child Protective Services in Maryland's Prince George's County and a criminal attorney with more than 20 years' experience, Rebecca has seen people at their lowest points. She is not easily shocked and does not judge you based on your circumstances.

As a classically trained ballerina, Rebecca learned the value of discipline and a stellar work ethic at a young age. She applies that same discipline and work ethic to every case she handles. Rebecca understands that, to a certain extent, your freedom rests in her hands, and she works around the clock to ensure you receive the best defense possible.
