Extremely thorough.
Patrick Maher could not have done a better job for me considering the circumstances of the charges in my case. I am so greatful for the effort he put forth to get the more serious charges dropped. We pleaded guilty to a minor traffic offense. I am very pleased with Mr. Maher.

Outstanding Council
Pat took my case for a suspected DUI in the summer of 2019. I spoke to 5 attorneys and neither of them had the knowledge of the law the exuded from the 20 minute call with Mr. Pat Maher. I felt confident with my decision to have Mr. Maher representing me based on the genuine interest that he showed during our phone call and the time that he's spent educating himself on the laws and regulations of the standardized field sobriety tests. Pat had educated me on what I would be facing and when the day of trial arrived I was nervous due to the unknown ahead, but I also had confidence knowing that Pat was there with me. My nervousness quickly went to the wayside when Mr. Maher started poking and prodding at the evidence posed against me. Pat dissembled the evidence posed against me like a technician and by the time it was all said and done, I had officers who witnessed the trial come up to me and say that it was one of the greatest defenses that they had ever seen. If you're still reading this, call Mr. Pat Maher. I know it wouldn't think twice. Thank you Pat.

Amazing Outcome
Not only a fantastic attorney, Pat is a decent human being. I am confident that following his counsel, one can rely on the very best possible results. Not only will he suggest effective measures one should take before going to trial, he will explain thoroughly how to proceed and why one should do so. Pat was always available for me and I was truly comforted by his presence and guidance. In my case, I received a jail sentence in District Court. In what seemed like only moments, Pat was at my cell door and had a plan. I was out of jail within hours and we appealed to Circuit Court. Before my case was heard in Circuit, I was informed by a number of my friends (at least four of whom are attorneys themselves) that I was lucky to get such a light jail sentence in District! I continued to do everything Pat suggested I do before going to Circuit Court and when that date arrived, he followed through with his plan. The result: 18 months probation and NO JAIL. Word can not describe how grateful I am to have been referred to this man. He is extremely competent. My family and I highly recommend him to any who face a legal issue of great importance.

Great lawyer and person
I found Mr. Maher on AVVO after reading his reviews I knew he was the attorney for me. He walked me through what I should expect and explained everything in detail. Mr. Maher got my case dismissed arguing that my fourth amendment rights were violated which the judge agreed with. Also, at my MVA hearing he argued that the officer did not explain my rights efficiently and therefore I should not have my license suspended of course he won that argument. Anyone needing an outstanding DUI/DWI attorney Patrick is your man.

My second DUI and I couldn't have hired a better attorney than Patrick Maher
When I got my DUI it was devastating. Not knowing what to expect was the worst of it. Unless I wanted to blindly go into this legal matter I’d need to find a good lawyer, preferably one who specializes in DUIs. I had already met with 4 attorneys and didn’t feel that any of them could help me…I just wasn’t satisfied with their responses to my questions. Thankfully I had a family friend, a native of Catonsville MD, who recommended Pat Maher to me. He was more expensive than the others (they were asking 1,400-1,800 for their services) but after meeting with Pat it was obvious that he knew what I was up against and would advise me on what to do and what to expect. And he did. He knew exactly what the judge would be looking for and advised me on what I should do to avoid any problems or setbacks, like having my license suspended or jail time, so I did everything he asked of me. We appeared in front of the MVA judge three times and the criminal judge once, and each time I was less and less anxious. Being represented by Mr. Maher and having him beside me in a courtroom setting was fantastic. He even got the MVA judge to delay the trial until the officer who was in charge of the breathalyzer on the night of my arrest could appear in court with us because of a problem he found on the paperwork. Because of his efforts not only was my license never suspended or revoked but I ended up with ZERO POINTS on my driving record! Hiring Pat Maher was the smartest thing I could have done. If you’re dealing with a DUI and are looking for a lawyer to represent you call and meet with Pat before making a final decision.

Hit and run
About a year ago I was involved in a hit and run, this was my first offense. I called a couple laywers before reaching out to pat and got no response. then I called pat and he responded right away. So that same phone call he told me exactly what to do without hesitation. Pat told me to do community service first right off the bat, then go to Columbia drug and alchohol clinic to get evaluated to see if I had problems with alchohol or drugs. After I did those steps I attended a seminar at the university of Maryland hospital at the shock trauma center on drunk driving and how serious and life threatening it is. Pat knew the steps for me to go any further in this process and I listened to him, did what he told me to do and when it was time for court he had me ready to go in there and stand in front of a judge. While in court I was extremely nervous and scared, but knowing that Pat was standing next to me, made me feel very safe and comfortable. Pat is very knowledgeable and passionate of his practice and the law. Having him by my side is and was one of the best decisions I've ever made. He saved my career of being a truck driver and no points on my license. I also wanted to say something on a side note when I had first called pat and finished the phone call I got a call back from a lawyer I had tried to reach out too. We talked about my conviction and what happened, but I kindly and politely told him I have a lawyer. He kindly asked who he was and I said his name is Pat Maher. Without letting me finish he said "oh I had lunch with him yesterday you have nothing to worry about you're in good hands!" Pat is a stand up guy and very genuine and definitely a man who cares. I highly suggest Pat Maher no doubt in my mind he is the best!! Thank you.

Great Attorney
When this unfortunate event occurred, I was very upset and from our intial phone call, Pat showed great client care by calming me down, and getting me focused on what was ahead. We mapped out a detailed game plan before court, which really helped when I went in front of the judge. Anytime I had questions before court he was quick to respond. He also helped me when I had issues with the MVA, regarding my restricted lisence and Smart Start, the interlock company I use. On the day of court he explained everything that was going to happen, and truly showed his expertise of all the DUI/DWI procedures, which resulted in me receiving a lesser charge. Overall, Pat was a great attorney and helped me through a very rough time in my life. I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation.

Pat was great! His price was fair, and is the best DWi/DUI attorney! He took time to prepare for my case, and defended me in court vigorously. I was very pleased with my judgement and the way he conducted himself in court; he is a force to reckon with! Thank Pat!

Highly Recommend for Legal Counsel
I was very fortunate to be referred to Patrick Maher for my legal counsel. Patrick was extremely thorough with my case and really took the time to understand my situation and discuss all the possibilities and consequences of the citations. I felt he always had my best interest in mind and truly treated me with respect and courtesy. He was very communicative through the entire process and I was comfortable asking questions and seeking advice. It is evident that Patrick has garnished a great deal of knowledge throughout his time practicing DUI/DWI legal counsel. Due to this expertise, he was able to make solid recommendations regarding positive steps one should take after being cited with such serious charges. I found the fees associated with Patrick's work were reasonable and that he exceeded my expectations. I was confident in my representation and would encourage anyone seeking a lawyer for DUI/DWI charges to consider hiring Patrick Maher. While I had a favorable outcome in my case, which can all be contributed to Patrick's dedication and expertise, I am certain he would represent any case to the best of his ability. I sincerely thank Patrick for the respect, courtesy and calmness with which he met my concerns and aided me through this difficult period.

Lawfully parked, but having car key access could constitute DUI
Patrick was referred to me by another attorney; that attorney was a trusted friend of mine, but did not practice DUI law. That in-its-self was an endorsement and a compliment. Upon contacting Patrick, I recognized that he was a good listener and clearly demonstrated subject matter expertise. As you likely know, there are two major parts for "keeping or loosing" your license - and being fined ... and/ or going to jail. Patrick's MVA administrative skills preserved my driving privilege unencumbered (no car installed breathalyzer); and at trial, he was a cogent, respectful, and a successful advocate. And I must add, he did a good job managing his client; that is, although I objected to certain police officer testimony, Patrick calmly dissuaded me from commenting/ testifying. Apparently, the judge was persuaded, in part, by Patrick's case law references/ defense and, generally, his presentation. Whereby, the judge decided that "my particular situation" (DUI charge) did not constitute driving under the influence. Postscript - As you likely know, the probable cause regarding all DUI arrest/charges can vary significantly. In my case, when I was confronted, I was not operating/ driving my vehicle, but I was in the driver's seat; and I was on private property, asleep. However, having access to the car's keys (they were in the ignition), the confronting officer's position was that intoxication and "access to the car's keys" constituted DUI. However, it was winter and a cold night, and to keep warm, Patrick explained that I had been cycling the engine/ heater. Fortunately for me, we had a discerning judge that was also "a good listener."

Highly Recommended Attorney!
I hired Mr. Maher after interviewing many other lawyers. He was the only lawyer that wanted to take time out of his day and give his insight on the case, even before i hired him! I couldn't have asked for a better result, as all of my more serious charges were dropped. I highly recommend him for any of your courtroom needs.

Awesome Attorney
I recently had the good fortune to be represented by Mr Patrick Maher, whom I found to be a phenomenal attorney! He is very thorough, knowledgeable, methodical, and compassionate. His level of knowledge, readiness, and preparation to represent his clients is a trait to which all attorneys should aspire. He does not give you false hope with unrealistic expectations. Mr. Maher clearly explains possible outcomes based on your specific case. I found him to be a very straightforward and honest attorney that gives his ALL. For my personal case, the DUI court hearing charges were dismissed and the MVA hearing resulted in "no action." Not only am I thankful to Mr. Maher, I am thankful for this site (Avvo). This was my first time ever being in a situation that required an attorney, and I was clueless. I began searching the internet and was led to Avvo which led me to Patrick Maher. I was drawn to him because of the favorable reviews for him, not only from his clients, but also from his peers. I have now joined that list. I would definitely recommend him to others. This may best express my opinion of him-- if Webster's Dictionary defined "Awesome Attorney" there would be a picture of Patrick Maher. Thank you Mr. Maher!

NOT GUILTY !
I was arrested for a DUI, DWI and a few other charges. I had never been arrested and had never had any dealing with the legal system other than a parking ticket or two. I needed help! I was referred to Patrick Maher by a friend who is an attorney. She told me he was the best. And she was right! I contacted Pat, he was very friendly, very helpful and explained every step of the process in great detail. His price was reasonable. He took my case to trial and WON! DUI-Dismissed, DWI- Not Guilty. He was able to lay out the facts and perfectly argue the details of my case and poke wholes in the states. If you want the best possible out come, Hire Patrick!

Got the job done.
I am truly grateful for Pat’s exceptional work, he went above & beyond for me. My case turned out extremely well and I could not be happier. I hired Pat soon after reading several positive reviews on Avvo and I was floored with his high expertise. Due to the fact this was my second DUI charge, it was extremely important for me to find a lawyer that was reasonable, knowledgeable, and able to get the job done. He did just that. Pat took the time to go through each loop and crack with me on how we were going to win the case. He too presented himself very well. He was kind, patient, thorough, and upfront through the entire process. He brought the facts to the table and didn’t settle for anything less. Ultimately, his proper negotiating got my DUI charge dismissed and I walked out with just a speeding ticket fine. His expertise changed things around for me and I am forever thankful for his service. I highly recommend Mr. Maher for your DUI/ DWI related needs.

Excellent Representation!
Patrick went above and beyond for me. This was my first time dealing with any legal proceedings and Pat helped in every step of the process. Pat helped to have us win our case in a not-guilty plea for DUI. We were offered a plea deal and other options, but Pat believed he could win based on the evidence to get a lesser sentence or win outright and he was right. In the process he was supportive and understood that I was regretful for even being in this position and provided me ample pieces of info to support our cause. I highly recommend Pat for any case he feels confident in and could not be more pleased with his service and results.

Just what we needed
Mr. Maher came to our rescue when our family found ourselves encountering the court system for the very first time when our son was charged with three serious crimes related to a traffic misunderstanding in a Maryland parking lot. The charges involved potential jail time and major fines. Mr. Mayer patiently explained the laws and the process, and conducted thorough research. From the very beginning, he expressed compassion (a real contrast with other attorneys we interviewed) and make clear throughout that he was a firm advocate for our son’s interests. In the end, prosecutors agreed that the police had filed egregious charges and presented a joint proposal to the judge for a very minor fine related to our son’s status as a permit holder (not yet a licensed driver). The judge concurred, a trial was averted and our son maintained his clean driving record. We could not have been more grateful for Mr. Mayer’s patience, thoroughness, advocacy, and reasonable fee.

Thorough and Honest
I hired Pat after finding him on Avvo and seeing all of the positive feedback. My case has just been decided. Considering the details, I could not be happier with the result. This was my fourth contact with the law regarding alcohol related offenses (third DUI charge). Pat took the time, on several instances, to walk through what happened with me step by step and to find anywhere we may have had a case. Although most cases do not go to trial, Pat was extremely prepared just in case it did and he made sure I was prepared as well. I was facing about eight charges altogether from this one incident. We respectfully declined the first plea offered by the State as Pat continued to go to bat for why the State did not have a guaranteed case against me. After some negotiation, the plea was lessened to the lower DWI charge with all other charges dismissed. All jail time was suspended and the judge was even willing to invite our petition for PBJ in the near future, pending my completion of an alcohol treatment program. I hope to never need his services again, but I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking honest and thorough representation.
