About me

My practice is 100% DUI/DWI defense in Montgomery County. I'll show you how we can miminize your risks as we work out a plan for your best outcomes in court and at the MVA. On a personal note, I'm most proud of my appointment as a Mentor to new attorneys in the Maryland Court of Appeals program at Maryland Professionalism Center.

  • Brett D Weiss

    Rick is the one criminal defense attorney to whom I would send a family member in trouble. He is smart and tough, yet caring and compassionate. His experience and knowledge are invaluable. I give him my highest recommendation.

  • Ernest Norton Tooby

    I endorse his work without hesitation. Although I am in California, I searched carefully for a top Maryland lawyer for several clients, and happily found Mr. Lurye, who did an excellent job. I can give him the highest recommendation, based on repeated experience in working with him on several cases.
