Criminal charges are a serious matter, even if it’s something seemingly harmless like driving on a suspended license. The penalties can range from fine to jail time, depending on your specific case, the history of prior offenses and whether you hired an experienced Maryland criminal defense attorney.

- You have the right to remain silent—you don’t have to talk to the police during your arrest or questioning.
- You have the right to an attorney whom you should be allowed to call.
- If you started answering questions, you can stop at any moment and wait to continue after you consult with your attorney.
- You are presumed innocent unless proven guilty.

“I must make it known, that if he was not the man that he is, were it not for his excellent skills as a lawyer, attorney at Law, Counselor – at law all rolled into one, life as I know it today, would not be one of serenity; but one of emotional anguish, mental stress, and a financial strain that would be unbearable to say the least.”
