Arya Saleh is a former Assistant State’s Attorney who has prosecuted a diverse array of criminal matters before judges and juries, in multiple jurisdictions throughout Maryland.
Mr. Saleh began his career as a judicial law clerk for the Montgomery County District Court, working alongside 11 District Court Judges. He was then appointed as an Assistant State’s Attorney for Frederick County, Maryland. There, he was first assigned to the District Court team, prosecuting thousands of misdemeanor cases, including DUI/traffic cases, drug offenses, domestic violence, and white-collar financial crimes. During this time, he was also designated as Special Prosecutor, prosecuting cases in several other counties across Maryland.
Mr. Saleh distinguished himself and rapidly rose through the ranks, ultimately being promoted to the Felony Narcotics Division. In this role, he headed the County’s Gang Prosecution Unit, handling felony narcotics, gang and firearms cases. Further, he was a member of a select team of Prosecutors overseeing high-profile, long-term narcotics-trafficking cases. The complexity of these cases included the supervision and authorship of search and seizure warrants and Title III wiretaps, working in tandem with the United States Attorney’s Office, the FBI, DEA, and Homeland Security.
Mr. Saleh now puts this considerable experience to work for Alpert Schreyer Poe, LLC, leveraging his trial and negotiation skills – and familiarity with the courtroom – to effectively advocate for clients during the most difficult of circumstances.
