Got the job done on a moving violation
David represented me on a moving violation citation that I received after rear-ending a truck in the beltway. I never had to appear in court and his representation, as well as the ineptness of the police, resulted in a dismissal of the case. David is approachable and easy to talk to, and is great with communication. I would absolutely hire him again and 10/10 recommend him to anyone dealing with a similar situation. Thank you, David!

Speeding ticket services
David was engaging and professional from the first phone call up until the last. He is extremely knowledgeable and was able to reduce my daughters speeding ticket, in excess of 20 miles over the limit, to a PBJ with a $75 fine. Great service

Very committed and accomodating
Mr. Waranch helped me on two seperate occasions. Both were traffic related. After doing some research and reading the good reviews Mr. Waranch has received in the past, I reached out to Mr. Waranch. I was offered a fee that was way better than what I was quoted by others. Mr. Waranch took care of both my tickets and helped me keep a clean driving record. I would highly recommend Mr. Waranch to anyone looking to represent them in the Maryland area.

Excellent outcome
I engaged David for a questionable traffic citation. He was attentive, thorough, accessible, helpful, and highly professional. His diligence revealed an inconsistency that I would never have detected and resulted in the judge dismissing the case. An excellent outcome.

Great Experience
I had a total of 7 tickets including reckless driving and egligent driving for doing 95 in a 65 with a total of around $1500. David appeared in court for me and I did not have to attend. After the case my ticket was reduced to $165 with 0 points. He kept me updated throughout the process and advised me on what to do. He would always answer or get back to me quickly within the same day if I called.

Not Guilty - Negligent Driving
It was a real pleasure having David assist with my case. I received a ticket for "Negligent Driving in Careless or Imprudent Manner" in MD, which could have resulted in significant points, a fine, and insurance impacts. David discussed my case with me (and was very responsive to my questions throughout the process), checked in with me before my court date, and called me right after the trial with the news that I was found Not Guilty. It was an extremely painless and hassle-free experience, and I would definitely recommend his services!

Fantastic, Easy Lawyer to work with!
David represented me in a speeding ticket. I had a clean record before this and he did everything he could to keep it that way. He was detailed in reviewing all the facts and building a case for me. He called me a few days before court to go over the case and in the end I was found not guilty and the case was dismissed! I think he was fairly priced and he will work hard for you and your case. I recommend!

Traffic Violation-Juvenile
I really liked working with David. My son had a traffic violation right after receiving his license. We were sure that our rates would increase so much that we would not be able to insure him and he would have to quit his athletic team. David answered all our questions, explained the situation very clearly, and helped my son understand the possible outcomes. In the end, David was able to negotiate for a reduced fine, no points, and no conviction. It also helped that his approach was always supportive and non-judgmental. I recommend him very highly.

100% recommend- Not Guilty on both charges
I received two exceeding posted maximum speeding tickets (one 71 in a 45, one 71 in a 45 in a work zone) which amounted to very expensive tickets, many potential points on my license, and a significant potential car insurance increase. I googled around and called a couple lawyers. One of which was significantly more expensive than David Waranch, who preached that 'you get what you pay for', but was from a large firm, had his assistant reach out to me instead, and I overall didn't have a great feeling about him. When I spoke with David Waranch personally, I trusted his experience and his level of engagement in my case. He discussed my case with me at length, called to check in with me as my court date neared, and called me after the case to let me know I was found NOT guilty on both charges. I know the process to pick a lawyer can be overwhelming and confusing but David will focus on your case. He has both sincerity and the expertise and I 100% recommend him.

Very good lawyer for traffic tickets
Hi, I have recently got a ticket "FAILURE TO STOP FOR STOPPED VEH FLASHING RED LIGHTS" opposite side. After doing research found David was experienced lawyer in handling traffic tickets. He gave his time to listen all the details and suggested me to write defensive exam. Finally my case was found not guilty and no fines or court fees.

Great job
David was clear, direct, and efficient and made this process as painless as possible. I lived out of state from where I received a speeding ticket and it was incredibly helpful for him to attend court and contest it on my behalf, resulting in a “not guilty” verdict!

Excellent
Mr. Waranch was the best lawyer I could ask for. He spent so much time explaining everything and was very professional and kind. He went above and beyond. Most importantly, he got me the best possible legal outcome on my case!!!! Not to mention, his fees were very fair. Highly recommend.

Good Traffic Attorney!
I contacted David right after I got pulled over. It was a Saturday. He was the few ones that responded during the weekend. The price is reasonable. And I get all my points dismissed, (used to be 6). Fines reduced to less than 50%. I really recommend him.
