Experienced DUI attorney C. Sei-Hee Arii will analyze the facts of each drunk driving charge to construct the best drunk driving defense possible or negotiate a reduction in charges.

The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) notes that alcohol is responsible for more deaths on the highway than any other cause. Like many states, Maryland legislates harsh penalties for individuals convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs.

Being cited for DUI in Maryland or for causing a drunk driving accident is serious. Maryland driving privileges are conditioned on implied consent, meaning if you drive on Maryland roads, you consent to tests to determine the concentration of alcohol or other drugs in your body. Refuse the test once and you could lose your license for a period of time.

If you are cited for DUI, you need a Rockville DUI attorney with years of experience with the MVA and the District and Circuit Courts. The Arii Law Firm, LLC located in Rockville, Montgomery County, Maryland can construct a solid DUI defense for all types of traffic charges including:

* Driving under the influence (DUI)
* Driving while impaired (DWI)
* Negligent or reckless driving
* Speeding citations
* MVA administrative matters

An experienced attorney can help you develop factual and legal defenses to the DUI/DWI charges and place the burden on the state prosecutors to prove their case against you beyond a reasonable doubt.  Find out how Ms. Arii can help you resolve your DUI, save your license, and secure your job and future without charge or obligation:  CLICK HERE TO CONTACT MS.

C. Sei-Hee Arii has been defending DUI/DWI charges since 2001.  She is a passionate DUI/DWI attorney committed to keeping abreast of DUI/DWI technology and changes in DUI/DWI law affecting her clients.  For example, since 1981, law enforcement officers began using the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) at the roadside to help determine whether motorists who are suspected of DWI have blood alcohol concentrations greater than the legal limit.  Law enforcement officers receive training enabling them to perform DWI detection and SFTS.  To level the field in court, C. Sei-Hee Arii received instruction similar to the police NHTSA/IACP Standardized Field Sobriety Test training using the most current training curriculum. In addition, she regularly attends DUI/DWI related courses, such as “Mastering Scientific Evidence in DWI/DUI Cases,” to further her DWI/DUI knowledge base. This commitment to DUI/DWI education enables her to be more effective at challenging the validity of Standardized Field Sobriety Tests and breath test devices and their reliability in court which ultimately benefits her clients.  If you or someone you know have been arrested for a DUI/DWI please contact C. Sei-Hee Arii for a free consultation.
