I was charged with a DUI in late 2014. I've never had any run-ins with the law before and didn't know where to even start looking for a lawyer to handle my case. I talked to a number of DUI lawyers and ended up choosing Sei-Hee, a decision I'm so glad I made. I wanted Sei-Hee to represent me because she showed genuine interest in my case, whereas I felt like "just another routine DUI case" when I reached out to other lawyers and firms.
Sei-Hee is a very understanding person, super responsive, and knows the MoCo court system well. She kept me informed throughout the process and was very helpful in accommodating my schedule and the fact I reside and work in NYC. Additionally, she did her due diligence to look beyond the just the surface of what happened to get the full story.
I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent DUI lawyer in MoCo.

I enlisted the services of Ms. Arii when I got slapped with 7 tickets - 1 being a DUI. Ms. Arii was very responsive and helpful during the whole process. When it came to my court date, she successfully convinced the prosecutor to strike a plea bargain. My 7 tickets were dismissed and I ended up with a PBJ for reckless driving. I am in the process of expunging that from my records. I am very pleased with the outcome and am thankful to Ms. Arii for helping me move on from this.

Sei-Hee is extremely competent and is willing to work with you. I had a DUI charge and she was very thorough about advising me about the different dynamics in court that may impact how I should plead (eg. how the judge typically rules in similar cases, presence of certain witnesses etc).
Very responsive and empathetic as well! I'd definitely hire her again

I was lucky enough to have Sei-Hee by my side when it really mattered. Her analytical and interpersonal skills are above par and she's more than willing to put in the time it takes to get your matter resolved. I highly recommend Sei-Hee.

Sei-Hee Arii will work hard for you. I was very overwhelmed with my DUI/DWI charges against me. I didn't know where to start, I never been in trouble with the law before, but the stacks were against me. When you get charges like I did, you will get a ton of mail from law offices. I went to three lawyers, my case was hard to prove, and I felt all three couldn't represent me the way I needed them to. Again, I was very overwhelmed, so I started to look online to do my own research. I came across Sei-Hee Arii's page. I read her profile and reviews, and I was impressed. My case was tricky, and I was apprehensive about calling, thinking I may run into the same type of lawyer. Boy was I wrong! When I got the nerve to call, she was actually in the office and I was immediately transferred to her. Sei-Hee asked me to explain my case, and I did. I was soo upset about what happened, I couldn't even explain my whole story without crying. She had a way of calming my nerves over the phone and ask me to come in to consult with her. I did. When I arrived, I didn't have to wait long, the receptionist was polite and the office environment wasn't cold. When I met Sei-Hee Arii in person, she was polite and professional. Her wall displays her achievements and honors, I was impressed. We spoke about my incident and she said something to me at the end that changed everything...that she believed me! Yes, she was willing to take on my case despite the odds against me! Sei-Hee didn't want me to take the guilty plea. She had my best interest in mind. Yes, she will fight for the underdog! She fought for me and my legal rights. We was in and out of court for almost a year, or very close to a year. That's how long it took and how hard she fought. Even outside the courtrooms, she never stopped working. She was always consistent with following up my case. Thanks to her determination and because she is a very good lawyer, my charges was reduced! No DUI/DWI record! Like I said before, the stacks where high against me. My livelihood was in jeopardy. If those charges stuck, I would have been in a very bad place. She proved my case and now I have my life back! I wouldn't want anyone else to represent me but her! Sei-Hee loves what she does and it shows! If anyone needs a good, no GREAT LAWYER! Please, please contact her! You will not regret it! I can go on and on about Sei-Hee!!! I just want to say Thank You Sei-Hee for believing in me and fighting my case to the very end!!!

When i got my 1st DUI, i was worried. I did not know what to expect since i never got into the wrong side of the law. I knew i had to get a good lawyer to help me fight it in court. I decided to call Sei-Hee Arii and she gave me an appointment to go to her office. I saw down and she took notes while she was asking questions and explaining the whole process. This itself made me calmed and relaxed knowing she will do whatever it takes to fight on my behalf in court. She understood i was a student and gave me a great deal!
To make a long story short, i did everything she asked me to do and she was able to convince the Judge to reduce my charges to DWI and best of all, my record was cleared! The money i spent was worth it.
If you looking for the best DUI lawyer in Maryland then call Sei-Hee Arii . She is good and what she does and i guarantee you she will do whatever it takes for you to get a better trial.
Thank you so much!

Ms. Sei-Hee Arii is nothing less than an exceptional lawyer as well as a human being. When I was going through a very stressful situation she was able to bring the event to a close with the best possible result. Throughout my yearlong process Ms. Arii not only advised me flawlessly, but listened to my thoughts and ideas about my case and incorporated them into her defense after taking the time to openly discuss the possible effects of my situation and courses of action with me in depth.
I found Ms. Arii through a website, selecting her based off of reviews and accolades. I can confidently say that Ms. Arii met or exceeded every high expectation that I had. Even when my situation was long and drawn out, Ms. Arii consulted me on her plan of action and walked me through every step along the way. I cannot say enough good things about the level of service Ms. Arii provided to me. I am not the type to write a review whether the level of service is good or bad....but if I could give Ms. Arii 10 starts I would.

Sei Hee is an excellent trial lawyer. As a long-time civil trial attorney myself, I recognized her hard work, thorough preparation, attention to detail, and complete responsiveness. She is no slap-dash attorney, like so many, who wait until the week before trial to begin shaping their cases. The old but true saying is that most cases are won or lost before the lawyers get to the Courthouse. That was certainly true in my case. Sei Hee's intense investigation and preparation, combined with caring so much about a good outcome, assured the complete victory that we won.

Sei-Hee Arii is the most professional, knowledgable and compassionate attorney I have ever hired. She was by my side every step of the way to ensure that I received the best outcome. Never did I feel judged or condemned for my wrong doing. She believed in me more than I did myself. She will be the attorney that I turn to for any and everything I need. I would highly recommend Sei-Hee for any and all of her areas of expertise. She is a one and a million attorney and a once in a lifetime individual.
