Experienced, Skilled, Effective DUI Lawyer DC

Driving while impaired (DWI) and driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol are serious charges that carry serious consequences, including heavy fines, suspension of driving privileges, loss of employment and even jail time for those who are convicted.


As in all serious criminal matters, your best defense is a skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyer.


I am one of the few DWI defense attorneys in Maryland to have completed a course in DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST), in accordance with the standards set forth by the International Association of Chiefs of Police and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. As a result, I am qualified to administer the SFST procedures – the same procedures that police administer to individuals they suspect of driving under the influence of alcohol.


This certification enables me to thoroughly scrutinize and challenge police procedures leading to a DWI/DUI arrest, including Breathalyzer, blood alcohol content and field sobriety tests.


In addition, I have experience with numerous proactive strategies that can help to mitigate the consequences of DWI/DUI convictions, such as seeking treatment for alcohol dependency and participating in defensive driving classes.
