About Me

As a Maryland DUI/DWI attorney, I have dedicated my career to representing people just like you.


The majority of my clients are hard-working people, who have made a mistake. In a momentary lapse of judgment, often times clouded by the use of alcohol, have gotten behind the wheel after having one too many.


However in the state of Maryland this mistake has criminal and administrative consequences that could potentially alter a person's life, at least temporarily.


As a former police officer, breath test operator, trained in the techniques of DUI/DWI detection, I have a unique perspective on DUI/DWI defense.


From the outset, it is critical that you seek the advice of a Maryland DUI/DWI attorney. Within days from your arrest, you stand to potentially waive critical rights, which could lead to the suspension or disqualification of your driving privilege.


In addition to fines, pretrial incarceration, and stigma of being arrested, your employment could be jeopardized, especially if you are employed as a commercial motor vehicle operator.


Please call me today for a free consultation. Your defense starts the moment you leave the police station. Avoid any further unnecessary negative consequences, by calling today for yourfree legal consultation. There is absolutely no obligation.
