    Ticketed for suspended license and expired tags

    My charges were extreme due to the location i was ticketed. The charges could have cause me to lose my job and my career, if it had not been for the outstanding assistance and expertise of Attorney Scott Athen. i was terrified of the gravity of the incident. However, Mr. Athen gave me peace of mind and explained to me the litigation parameters of that particular case. Prior to speaking with Mr Athen, I spoke with several lawyers who were charging exorbitant retainer fees because of my circumstances. On the other hand considering his outstanding expertise in traffic violation cases, Mr. Athen fees were extremely reasonable. I was very surprised to see that he was able to have my case dismissed without my personal appearance in front of the judge. I was fortunate to have found such conscientious and very knowledgeable attorney. I am forever grateful to his work. I wish there were more lawyers like him.

    Get results, uses technology to make things easier, and very responsive!

    Scott made everything straight forward starting with scheduling an initial consultation to discuss his approach, then gathering all necessary information through his web portal and finally getting us a not guilty verdict! I highly recommend Scott as a professional attorney who also has a personable approach with his clients. He made the whole process easy and communicated quickly whenever we had questions. He explained how traffic court works and what you can expect based on the cases he has represented previously. Would recommend him to my family and friends if they needed the representation.

    Well prepared and experienced lawyer

    Scott did an excellent job handling my case. He was very knowledgeable and experienced through the whole process. I felt comfortable knowing he was involved with my traffic citation. Although the judge agreed with my view quickly, I thought Scott was prepared to fight many key points proving my innocence if needed. It was a great experience, and would definitely recommend.

    Great Lawyer

    Scott is an excellent lawyer. He got me a JUDGMENT OF ACQUITTAL verdict on my over speeding ticket without me appearing in court.

    Scott Athen is great!!!

    Scott was very in-tuned with my case. He already had information on my arresting officer before I even had my initial meeting with him. He is extremely knowledgeable of DUI cases and confidently guided me through each step of the process. He took my particular case to trial and got all my charges dropped. Scott is worth every penny!

    Scott Carl Athen’s response: “Thanks for the comments! Although you were offered what most would consider a “good” deal, we pressed on and got the result that you were looking for!”

    A successful vindication

    This was a scary, expensive and frustrating experience. But Scott Athen made it informative, calm as possible with a result of all charges thrown out at the end. This occurred because Mr. Athen was knowledgable, understood what the steps are and kept me informed about each part along the way. His knowledge of the process the police utilize and his association with experts kept the pressure on the prosecution to do their proper homework and have the truth come out. At the end, I also received a thorough education to ensure this never occurs again.

    Scott Carl Athen’s response: “Thanks Rob, it took more trips to the Courthouse prepared for trial than we wanted, but in the end, you were vindicated!”

    Great attorney and person. Would highly recommend to anyone.

    I've hired Scott on several occasions for the different cases I have had over the past 7 years. Anytime I have had questions or concerns, Scott has always addressed my issues immediately and kept me feeling comfortable.
    I have recommended Scott to family and friends. Anytime someone that I know needs some sort of legal assistance, I have always passed on Scott's contact info. Whether or not he is able to personally help someone with their issues, he will always point you in the right direction.
    Scott is without a doubt the first and last person I would call whenever I or someone I know is in some sort of legal assistance.
    Lastly, Scott has always explained to me the different potential outcomes that came along with my charges. Every time, I have always tried to prepare myself for the worse. Yet with Scott's knowledge, expertise, and confidence he has always done better than expected for me and the outcome of my case.

    Scott Carl Athen’s response: “Jonathan, thank you very much. We’ve known each other for many years, and I am glad to be able to call you a friend!”

    Amazing Attorney

    Scott walked me through every step of my DUI proceedings. He kept me informed and alleviated many of my fears and concerns. He is thorough in looking at every angle of the situation. He is proactive in helping his clients prepare the best defense, again considering all of the information available. He has thoroughly educated himself on multiple aspects of DUI proceedings in Maryland, from the field tests to the breath test machines. His book is a wonderful resource I highly recommend to anyone facing DUI charges, or even before it happens!

    Scott Carl Athen’s response: “Thanks, LT! I’m glad we were able to get all of your charges dismissed!”

    Review for Scott Athen

    Mr. Athen has been my one and only legal representation for my entire life. He is very knowledgeable on the state of MD traffic laws and moving violations. He represented me twice. My first case resulted in a PBJ. My second case I was found NOT GUILTY with a breath test of .23. Outside of representing me legally, Scott took the time to counsel me morally. He is very invested in his clients, and that shows from beginning to end. It is without reservation or hesitation that I would recommend Scott to anyone for legal representation.

    Scott Carl Athen’s response: “Thanks, J.A.D! Your kind words mean a lot to me - I’m happy things are going so well for you!”
