Wholeheartedly dedicated to advocating for clients facing criminal charges, Attorney Luis F. Maradiaga is a valued addition to Dummit Fradin. Prior to joining Dummit Fradin, he served as a criminal defense and immigration attorney in Winston-Salem and as a prosecutor in Orange County, NC. Mr. Maradiaga received his B.A. degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and obtained his Paralegal Certificate from Meredith College. He graduated from the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law, cum laude, where he received the Book Award at the Restorative Justice Clinic and was selected to attend the 2012 Restorative Justice Conference at Harvard Law School.
Mr. Maradiaga has advocated for clients accused of felonies, misdemeanors, and impaired driving. He has adroitly navigated DMV restoration hearings as well as driving record cleanups. Should you have charges outside of Forsyth County, he will travel to Davidson, Davie, Stokes, Surry, and Yadkin Counties on your behalf for a comprehensive resolution of all your charges. Always ready for trial, Mr. Maradiaga will aggressively litigate your case so that your rights are protected to the fullest extent of the law.
As a native of Honduras, Luis is especially adept at serving the needs of those in the Hispanic community. Bilingual, he skillfully advises our Spanish-speaking clients without the need for an interpreter. Should immigration consequences be a consideration, he will direct you to the path that is least likely to invoke removal proceedings. Having personally gone through the residency and citizenship process, he empathizes with those looking to do the same, and works diligently to protect you from facing any criminal bars when applying for residency or citizenship.
Mr. Maradiaga deeply cares about each of his clients being fully satisfied with the outcome of their case. He patiently reviews the details of every case, and he makes it his priority to keep you informed at every stage of your case. Share the details of your case with Mr. Maradiaga, knowing he will carefully craft his representation to pursue the resolution that best serves your interests.
