About me

If you are facing criminal charges, you need experienced attorney Allen Orenberg defending your rights. A conviction can mean harsh fines, jail time, or both. Regardless of the crime you have been charged with, you still have rights that need to be protected. You should never make a statement to law enforcement officials or sign any documents without first consulting an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

Traffic offenses are no longer minor offenses, especially along the I-95 corridor in Washington, D.C. The Firm represents people charged with DUI / DWI, speeding, reckless driving, driving without a valid license, driving under suspension, and hit and run in and around the D.C. Beltway and throughout the state of Maryland.

The Firm also represents clients charged with federal traffic offenses, occurring on highways such as the George Washington Parkway and Baltimore-Washington Parkway, along with all traffic offenses occurring within federal parks.

Allen Orenberg has handled numerous cases of academic misconduct, including allegations of cheating and plagiarism. Recently, we helped a local college student be cleared of all charges after she was falsely accused of plagiarism.
