- Solomon & Cohen:
Being charged with a crime is stressful, and having an experienced
lawyer to provide legal representation in the initial stages of a
criminal case is critical.
- Malik, Ricky: Immigration and Criminal Charges If you are an immigrant to the United States and have been charged with a crime, it is extremely important to hire an attorney who knows both criminal and immigration law. Criminal charges can have a detrimental effect your immigration status. You could be deported.
- Steven Berry:
Probably nothing is more terrifying or upsetting to the average citizen
than being charged with Driving While Intoxicated (or "DWI") or another
serious traffic violation. Penalties in DWI and traffic cases include
not only fines and potential jail sentences, but also the suspension or
revocation of one's driver's license. Conviction of a serious traffic
crime may also trigger the cancellation of one's automobile insurance
-- and may even render one "uninsurable" by any reputable private
insurance company. In addition, a traffic law defendant may be forced
to undergo two separate legal proceedings; i.e., (1) a trial in the
District Court of Maryland and (2) a license suspension hearing in the
Office of Administrative Hearings.

- Lloyd Malech:
If you are facing drunk driving charges, you need an experienced DUI &
DWI lawyer to protect and defend your rights. Your freedom could be at
risk. Not only that, a conviction for drunk driving or any other
criminal charge - even a misdemeanor - can have negative consequences
on both your personal life and your work life far into the future.
Anyone who drives and who enjoys a drink is vulnerable to a drunk-driving arrest. A DUI or DWI charge can be extremely embarrassing. You may feel ashamed or worried about what will happen after the arrest. Can you keep your driver's license? What are the fines for a drunk-driving conviction? Will your employer find out? Will I go to jail?
& Purdum: The second category of traffic violations are known as
"major offenses" and include, among other charges, Driving While
Intoxicated (DWI), Driving Under the Influence of Drugs/Alcohol (DUI)
and Driving on a Suspended License. If you are convicted of a major
offense, you may be subject to imprisonment and/or a substantial fine.
If you are charged with a major offense, you must appear in court.
Unlike minor offenses, you cannot pay the fine to avoid going to court.
Anyone charged with a major offense should be represented by an
attorney. An attorney will have the legal know-how to object to
evidence and questions, and is better able to offer to the court
reasons why you deserve leniency if you are found guilty of the offense.
