I had a license suspension hearing at the MVA, why do I have to go to the District Court?
Do not confuse your MVA license suspension hearing date with your District Court DUI or DWI court date. Maryland punishes you by taking your license in an administrative proceeding and then punish you again in court on your criminal charges.
As an experienced attorney, I can help you develop factual and legal defenses to the DUI or DWI charges and place the burden on the state prosecutors to prove their case against you beyond a reasonable doubt. Find out how I can help you resolve your DUI, save your license, and secure your job and future without charge or obligation.
I have been defending DUI/DWI charges since 2001. I am a passionate attorney committed to keeping abreast of DUI and DWI technology and changes in the law affecting my clients. For example, since 1981, law enforcement officers began using the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations (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, I received instruction similar to the police NHTSA/IACP Standardized Field Sobriety Test training using the most current training curriculum. In addition, I regularly attend DUI/DWI-related courses, such as Mastering Scientific Evidence in DWI/DUI Cases, to further my knowledge base. This commitment to education enables me 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 my clients.
