DUI & DWI Defense

Scott wrote the book when it comes to answering your questions about DUI defense. How to Choose a DUI Lawyer in Maryland is a FREE book that gives you the ten questions that you MUST ask any DUI defense attorney before you hire him or her.

The book will also explain twenty ways a lawyer might lose a WINNABLE case. From knowing what police look for to stop you, to the Field Sobriety Tests, to the breath test, the book gives you examples of successful defenses to DUI cases.

In the book, Scott lets you in on a secret about lawyer fees for DUIs…

(that attorneys across the State of Maryland probably don’t want you to know!)

Speeding Tickets

Some of the busiest highways in the country pass through Maryland. Interstate 70 (I-70), Interstate 95 (I-95), Interstate 97 (I-97) and Interstate 795 (I-795) all merge with the Baltimore Beltway (I-695). On almost any given day, you can see a police officer or Maryland State Trooper running RADAR, LIDAR, LASER, or some other speed trap. You can get up to five (5) points on your Maryland Driving Record for a speeding ticket (it only takes 8 points for a potential suspension of your license). If you live out of State (or even if you live in Maryland for that matter), did you know that you can have a lawyer take your case to trial – and you don’t have to go to court!?

Saying you were going with the flow of traffic or the officer must have gotten the wrong car are not defenses that work. But don’t worry, there are battle-proven and time-tested defenses to speeding [both Statutes - 21-801.1 and 21-801(a)] that Scott has developed in all of his years of practice. Call Scott at 877-319-5722 to discuss your case, and to get your Flat Fee Guarantee for representation.

Driving While Suspended

Many times, police officers charge drivers with the wrong version of the Driving While Suspended (DWS) statute § 16-303. To find out if you were charged correctly, and if there are other potential defenses to your case, contact Scott at 877-319-5722! After discussing your case, Scott will give you his Flat Fee Guarantee.

Driving While Revoked

There are many reasons why your Driver’s License might be revoked. Scott can find out why you are revoked, and explain to you hot to get your license reinstated. Click the “Contact Scott Now!” button or call 877-319-5722. As always, Scott will give you his Fixed Fee Guarantee for representation.

Aggressive Driving

Aggressive Driving is a combination of specific traffic offenses that happen at or about the same time and can add up to six points to your driving record. With only eight points needed for the MVA to suspend you, you need to do everything you can to fight this relatively new charge. Call 877-319-5722 to he Scott review your case and give you his Flat Fee Guarantee for representation.

The Flat Fee Guarantee – Scott will charge you a flat fee and you will know up front exactly what Scott’s fee will will be, and not a penny more throughout the entire case.
