Since I became an adult I have had two criminal arrests resulting from traffic stops. I have used Peter as my attorney on both occasions and he has in both cases done everything in his power to help me.
In the first case I was arrested for driving while impaired by alcohol and possession of marijuana. Although the state had an ironclad case against me, Peter was able to convince them to give me the benefit of probation before judgement.
The second case was for driving under the influence of alcohol, reckless driving, and failure to change lanes or reduce speed when passing a stopped emergency vehicle. (You would be wise to remember this new Marlyland law). Peter was able to argue the legality of the stop in our favor, and I was acquitted of all charges.
Keep in mind that Peter has been in the business for a long time, and he thinks and acts quickly. I would not be shocked if some individuals would consider him to be short or unresponsive to their inquiries about their case. The truth is though that he does what needs to be done to win each case in the most efficient manner. If he needs to speak with you about your case, he will contact you. Otherwise you will likely just meet him at the courthouse and quickly discuss whatever is necessary to shoot for the most favorable outcome.
Don't scoff at the amount of money he charges for his services. A verdict of "not guilty" is worth the extra cash. We all know that a guilty verdict almost always ends up costing you MUCH more in the end.
I highly recommend Peter O'Neill for any criminal defense needs, especially traffic related cases.
