Further, all of Columbia and Ellicott City DWI and DUI clients are immediately put into some type of alcohol treatment. Alcohol treatment is done at several places that we know, Howard County District and Circuit Court Judges respect.

Our DWI and DUI legal team has a desire to win, yet we also have a desire to ensure our clients are less likely to have a DWI or DUI reoccur. A desire to win and our attitude towards protecting our clients for the future has enabled us to obtain an excellent track record in both the Howard County District and Circuit Courts and enabled many of our clients to avoid being repeat offenders.
