Founding attorney Arya Saleh has earned a reputation as one of Maryland’s premier DUI and Criminal Defense litigators. He is a former Felony Prosecutor, having headed the Gang Unit within the Narcotics Division of the Frederick County State’s Attorney’s Office. Here, he quarterbacked local, state and federal investigations, encompassing an array of notably diverse targets: drug bosses, arms traffickers, outlaw bikers, and even grave robbers, to name a few. Prior to that, Arya began his career at the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office, leading to his appointment as a Judicial Law Clerk for fifteen District Court Judges in his home county.
Arya’s distinguished government service did not go unnoticed. He was recruited into private practice by a prominent defense firm, challenging Arya to grow the sprawling state-wide practice to unprecedented heights. Arya rose to the occasion, exceeding expectations throughout the more than half a decade he was there. Responsible for daily management of the firm's DUI and Criminal Defense practice - from initial consult to final verdict - this division of the firm increased in value every consecutive year under Arya's directorship. Most importantly Arya learned, and in due time helped refine, an elite brand of defense litigation from this veritable firm.
Today, countless clients from every walk of life continue to trust Arya, to safely guide them through the darkest days of their lives, to successful outcomes before judges and juries - all over Maryland - keeping careers on track, families together, and hard-earned reputations intact.
No Maryland lawyer currently defending DUI and Criminal cases enjoys a larger, more devoted legion of loyal and happy past and present clients than Arya Saleh. This is not hyperbole but rather, an objective statement - supported simply by Arya's total number of reviews right here on AVVO.
Indeed, according to its own internal data, AVVO recently confirmed Arya as being their Maryland Leader in positive Cient Reviews. Arya currently possesses more 5-star reviews than any other Maryland DUI/Criminal attorney, by a substantial margin.
Arya has devoted his career to mastering the nuances of the Courtroom, and takes great pride in putting his experience, knowledge and relationships to work for clients every day. He is known to often tell concerned clients, particularly during their initial consultation, “good people have bad days.” And when they do, Arya is always prepared - standing ready to carefully help them onto their feet, diligently plotting every subsequent step ahead, toward ultimate victory.
For Arya, each new client that hires is not merely new business, but rather, a fellow human placing their life in his hands, trusting him to expertly protect all that is dear to them. Nothing motivates Arya more than this awesome responsibility - remaining a leader in this realm, continually rewarding clients for putting their faith in him.
Arya is happily married to his beautiful wife, whom he first started dating in high school. They share two magical children and a rambunctious bull terrier. Arya is fluent in the Persian language, is a champion swimmer, avid (but definitely not champion) golfer, classically-trained violinist, self-taught guitarist and drummer, and a discerning fan of heavy metal music from around the world.
