Criminal defense can be a technical area of practice, and so whether you are charged with a DUI / DWI, assault, CDS possession charge, or simply a traffic ticket or suspended license case, it is vital to have local counsel who can "speak the language" of Queen Anne's County.

Criminal charges, such as driving while intoxicated and driving under the influence, can have significant repercussions, so it is important to remember that you do not have to take the standardized field sobriety tests, you do not have to consent to a search of your person or property, and you do not have to speak to the police. Always call an attorney before speaking with a police officer because what you say will be used against you.

If you have been charged with a crime and are seeking vigorous representation from attorneys with local knowledge, please feel free to call our Kent Island office to set up a consultation.
