Considering the life-long consequences a drug crime conviction can have, don't settle for anything less than the best.
- DWI/DUI Defense
Once arrested for a DUI or DWI, you have 10 days to request a Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration hearing. Without an experienced lawyer, you will be treated as a common criminal, and will be subjected to all of the harsh penalties with no chance of walking away from your mistake. Given our reputation for being "heavy-hitting" trial lawyers, most local prosecutors will not proceed to trial against us unless the evidence against our client is very strong. We have been very successful in convincing prosecutors to drop DUI cases, or to offer a plea bargain that requires no jail time what so ever.
Expungement is a process in which your criminal records are removed from public access. However, it is very important to emphasize that in Maryland you cannot expunge all of your criminal records from all places which are accessible to public inspection. For over 20 years, we have successfully been providing help and assistance in numerous cases of expungement procedures. Regardless of the institution where your records are still available to the public such as police, court or MVA, you can rest assured that they will be expunged in a complete compliance to the law and to the maximum level of your personal expectations.

Under our system of laws, a person is innocent until proven guilty. But, when a person stands accused of child sex abuse, sadly the rule has become, "guilty until proven innocent". But, when a person stands accused of child sex abuse, sadly the rule has become, "guilty until proven innocent". We understand the stigma associated with sexual charges.
