Traffic Offense

Maryland DUI/DWI Defense Attorney

The most often prosecuted and common of offenses involve traffic and drunk driving.  Therefore, it is only normal to feel bad, victimized even, or have lots of questions after being detained or arrested following a traffic offense.  Let me help you through your case and answer your questions:  Is this going to suspend my license?  How many points will I get?  Is my insurance going to increase?  What can I do, or can a lawyer do to help?

At the Carpio Law Firm, LLC, I practice daily in the District Court of Maryland and Superior Court of the District of Columbia defending traffic offenses.   I will protect your rights if you are facing any range of traffic offenses in Maryland and D.C.  Whether you have been charged with speeding or  drunk driving, I will be ready to handle both your criminal and administrative concerns. Remember that going to MVA is part of our defense and our  pledge to help you in your entire case.

What Can a Traffic Offense Lawyer Do for You?

The best option is not always paying the fine and accepting the points. There are multiple things you can do to minimize the impact of a traffic offense. Maryland offers probation before judgment, which when granted by the judge could help you keep points off your license. Prosecutors may also be able to reduce the number of miles per hour over the speed limit on your offense.
Having an experienced attorney on your side can make all the difference if you have been charged with any of the following traffic offenses:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Negligent driving
  • Driving while suspended
  • Driving without a license
  • Cell phone law offense

In addition to protecting the rights of the accused in traffic courts, our firm also handles traffic-related offenses in criminal courts, including drunk driving and vehicular homicide.
