A Drunk Driving Conviction Can Derail Your Future

Many people plead guilty to DUI/DWI charges to try and move on from an embarrassing mistake. Unfortunately, many people fail to take into account the range of consequences that can come with a guilty plea:

  • Up to a year in jail
  • Thousands of dollars in fines and fees for court costs, monitoring, alcohol treatment and classes
  • Up to 12 points on your driver's license
  • License suspension or revocation
  • Revocation of a commercial driver's license for breath test refusal
  • Probation

As your lawyer, I will investigate the facts surrounding your arrest and provide you with informed legal advice about your options and how best to proceed. As an experienced former public defender who has been involved in hundreds of trials, I will be prepared to defend your rights in court if necessary.

You Must Act Quickly To Protect Your Driver's License

In Maryland, in addition to criminal proceedings, you must formally request a license suspension hearing with the state Motor Vehicle Administration within 30 days of your arrest.

You must actually ask for a hearing within 10 days of your arrest if you want to receive a temporary license to use until your MVA hearing. This temporary license will allow you to continue driving to work and other places even if you have to wait months for your MVA hearing.

With extensive knowledge of how one case can affect the other, I can represent you in both your criminal proceeding and MVA hearing to help you seek the best outcome in both.
