I contacted Sei-Hee a week before my hearing, I was worried and didn’t know what was going to happen, I was facing multiple citations, at least 10 including a DUI as well as A DWI. She spoke with me and after our initial consultation I felt do much better, she explained what my next steps should be leading up to my trail date, and ended up getting all my charges dropped, all 10!! But beyond being an great lawyer, she is a caring person who I believe generally cares about her clients and not just there money. If I ever needed a lawyer again, (God forgive), Sei-Hee would be my first choice.

Facing a judge after blowing a .019 and reckless driving isn’t the easiest, but with Sei-Hee Arii by my side I was confident. She fought to get me the best outcome possible, which for me was a PBJ, 8 hrs of community service & to attend a [MADD] class. This was my first offense, but the courtroom did not want to take it easy on me by any means. Sei-Hee did everything in her power to help me with this case, including offering to go to trial if that’s what needed to be done. She definitely knows what she’s doing & she stood out in the courtroom compared to the other attorneys when it came to being [knowledgeable] about the law.

I chose Sei-Hee after reading all these positive reviews and they were right! I thought my case was hopeless after a relatively good performance on the field sobriety tests but over a 0.08 BAC on the breathalyzer. I had zero experience with the law or how to choose a lawyer but after reading every single review for her and multiple other lawyers, it seemed like she would give me the best chance. More importantly, she was the only lawyer I met with who read my all papers in depth and gave me real advice about my individual case. I still remember her saying “I feel good about this case” and describing a similar case that she won, which gave me hope from my first meeting with her instead of the vague “we’ll see what we can do when we get more details” approach like every other lawyer. I went through 6 months of hell until my trial, thinking my life and career were over because I would get a PBJ no matter what since I agreed to the breathalyzer. However, we got a good judge and she was able to get a NOT GUILTY verdict for me for all DWI/DUI charges and helped me get them expunged immediately afterward!! I ended up only paying for the traffic ticket. I was truly shocked and overjoyed by this outcome. Getting arrested for a DUI a horrific situation to be in and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, but if you are reading this just choose her!

HER REPRESENTATION GAVE ME PEACE OF MIND • C. Sei-Hee Arii represented me in a difficult traffic appeal case with the outcome winning my appeal. Very thorough and professional throughout the course of my appeal, she was able to negotiate with the Judge and the States Attorney in way that presented the facts in their true merit. I have no reservations in recommending C. Sei-Hee Arii to anyone who may need a great attorney and will defiantly hire her for any legal matters I may have in the future. In my experience there is no more professional, comforting and successful Attorney in the DMV.

Sei-Hee was referred to me by another lawyer and mutual friend and after my experience with her work I have referred her to several other potential clients. She is generous with her time, thorough and a creative problem solver. When it was clear that there was a possibility to settle our case out of court we proceeded to arbitration. When the arbitration was unsuccessful she taught us how to proceed to take over a large part of the work ourselves in order to save money and report back to her for advice on how to resolve the dispute in court until she was needed again at the end. I am in the process now of filling out the forms she sent me to update my mother’s will, create trusts and do end of life planning. Sei-Hee has a complete package of pre-visit information sheets that once filled out allow us to gather all the information in one place and help her give us the best advice possible.

Sei-Hee was extremely helpful, meticulous, and effective. Moreover, her ability to sympathize and relate specifically to our situation was very much appreciated. Even in the initial consultation, she asked very thoughtful questions that no other lawyer thought to ask us, which is how we ended up choosing her as our lawyer.

Sei-Hee is an excellent lawyer who is second to none. She handled my case in a professional manner. She told me what to expect and assured me of her help with my traffic violation related charges. She was very brief and clear when she represented me during my court hearing. She presented the case to the judge in a clear manner and convinced the judge that charges me does not deserve a harsh punishment and that I should be given a second chance to prove that I am a good law abiding person. The judge accepted her argument and I got out of trouble. Therefore I highly recommend her for any traffic related violations because she has what it takes to get you out of trouble once you follow her Counsel before court hearing. She also understands circumstances and gives good recommendations. You will never regret her services.

C. Sei-Hee Arii is a highly dedicated attorney who is well respected in the DMV community. Representation by Sei-Hee meant prompt assistance and feedback telephonically and electronically, excellent knowledge about all laws in this area and a very tenacious effort to defend our case. She’s not all talk, this attorney takes action. She defended our son and made sure that he did not have suffer negative consequences and judgment as he moves forward in life.

C. Sei-Hee Arii took a chance taking my case the weekend before my court date. Not only did she treat my case like she had months to prepare, she was also very graceful as she spoke with the states attorney. She courteously explained everything that was happening very promptly so I was completely sure of any decisions I would have to make.

DUI/DWI case in Maryland

Sei-Hee Arii will work hard for you. I was very overwhelmed with my DUI/DWI charges against me. I didn’t know where to start, I never been in trouble with the law before, but the stacks were against me. When you get charges like I did, you will get a ton of mail from law offices. I went to three lawyers, my case was hard to prove, and I felt all three couldn’t represent me the way I needed them to. Again, I was very overwhelmed, so I started to look online to do my own research. I came across Sei-Hee Arii’s page. I read her profile and reviews, and I was impressed. My case was tricky, and I was apprehensive about calling, thinking I may run into the same type of lawyer. Boy was I wrong! When I got the nerve to call, she was actually in the office and I was immediately transferred to her. Sei-Hee asked me to explain my case, and I did. I was soo upset about what happened, I couldn’t even explain my whole story without crying. She had a way of calming my nerves over the phone and ask me to come in to consult with her. I did. When I arrived, I didn’t have to wait long, the receptionist was polite and the office environment wasn’t cold. When I met Sei-Hee Arii in person, she was polite and professional. Her wall displays her achievements and honors, I was impressed. We spoke about my incident and she said something to me at the end that changed everything…that she believed me! Yes, she was willing to take on my case despite the odds against me! Sei-Hee didn’t want me to take the guilty plea. She had my best interest in mind. Yes, she will fight for the underdog! She fought for me and my legal rights. We was in and out of court for almost a year, or very close to a year. That’s how long it took and how hard she fought. Even outside the courtrooms, she never stopped working. She was always consistent with following up my case. Thanks to her determination and because she is a very good lawyer, my charges was reduced! No DUI/DWI record! Like I said before, the stacks where high against me. My livelihood was in jeopardy. If those charges stuck, I would have been in a very bad place. She proved my case and now I have my life back! I wouldn’t want anyone else to represent me but her! Sei-Hee loves what she does and it shows! If anyone needs a good, no GREAT LAWYER! Please, please contact her! You will not regret it! I can go on and on about Sei-Hee!!! I just want to say Thank You Sei-Hee for believing in me and fighting my case to the very end!!!

Miss Arii was very helpful with my court case, saving me astronomical amounts of money. She knew how to handle the situation with proficiency and great professionalism. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the future. The only 4 star is only because I had to ask what was happening with the case once and the only reason I wasn’t immediately informed was because she hadn’t received discovery of the case yet. This is through no fault of her own.

I have been represented by sei hee twice now, and both times she has succeeded in getting favorable results, even to the point of dismissal. I contacted her office whenever I needed her assistance and they were very helpful if she was busy or on vacation, so I would just text her and she would respond and tell me exactly what to do and answers all of my questions promptly. Both times, I did not have to worry about anything leading up to the cases, I would simply just show up and let her do the work which she always does in a very professional manner, and knows exactly what to say in every scenario or questioning being given. I really recommend sei hee because she is just very knowledgeable and kind hearted down to talking with you or the judge and just knows exactly how everything will be played out even before it happens.

Ms. Sei-Hee Arii represented a friend of mine on a criminal matter several years ago. There was no doubt as to my friend’s guilt but she handled the case skillfully and with sensitivity and understanding. She kept us informed at each step of the legal process and what subsequent actions my friend would have to take to have his record expunged. We were very pleased with her thoroughness. The results of the trial were much better than my friend and I had hoped for and we were extremely pleased with her professionalism. In fact, I found myself regretting that I had not gone into law myself. We are all grateful for her help. She is a dedicated professional and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of legal representation.

As a professional courtesy and without charge, she assisted me in filing the expungement paperwork. She was very professional, very friendly and I would absolutely hire her again and recommend her to others. Thank you Ms. [Arii]!

Ms. Sei-Hee Arii is nothing less than an exceptional lawyer as well as a human being. When I was going through a very stressful situation she was able to bring the event to a close with the best possible result. Throughout my yearlong process Ms. Arii not only advised me flawlessly, but listened to my thoughts and ideas about my case and incorporated them into her defense after taking the time to openly discuss the possible effects of my situation and courses of action with me in depth. I found Ms. Arii through a website, selecting her based off of reviews and accolades. I can confidently say that Ms. Arii met or exceeded every high expectation that I had. Even when my situation was long and drawn out, Ms. Arii consulted me on her plan of action and walked me through every step along the way. I cannot say enough good things about the level of service Ms. Arii provided to me. I am not the type to write a review whether the level of service is good or bad….but if I could give Ms. Arii 10 starts I would.

Terrific attorney in the DC/Maryland area

When I was arrested for marijuana possession this past April in Washington, DC (on a weekend visit from out-of-state) I was worried about my future; I didn’t know what this could mean for my career or even my freedom because of Washington’s strict marijuana laws, but after hiring Ms. Arii my fears immediately subsided. She was very attentive and assured me that she would do all she could to make sure my case would be handled well. I was facing a max of 6 months in prison for my offense. I was very pleased with Ms. Arii’s work after she cut a deal with the prosecutor which not only had me avoiding jail time AND probation (I was only given community service, which I was able to serve in my home state), but I was also able to avoid attending my final court appearance since I was out-of-state. In all my dealings with Ms. Arii she was informative, organized, and cared about my case as if she were the one facing the prison sentence. On top of all that, her fee was very reasonable and much less than I initially feared my lawyer fees would cost.

Sei-Hee Arii is definitely an expert in her field. Her knowledge, expertise and professionalism saved my life. She was successful in obtaining a reduction of my charges from DUI to DWI. More importantly, she was successful in avoiding incarceration and convincing the prosecutor to change his recommendation against jail! In the courtroom, it was clear to me that folks were not prepared or represented nearly as well as I was. I felt terrible as I watched someone being handcuffed and taken away. Too bad Sei-Hee wasn’t his lawyer. I was blessed to have found Sei-Hee. I am so happy with the resolution and especially grateful that I placed my trust in her throughout the process.

Ms. Sei-Hee Arii recently represented me for a DUI case in which I was very pleased with the outcome. During consultation she was very honest with me about my possible consequences, from worst to best, with it being my 2nd alcohol related offense.

She represented me professionally and positively in the court room and was able to get me a very favorable outcome in comparison to the possible consequences.

First time DUI in Maryland, had no idea what to expect. I called Sei-Hee the next morning and she was immediately kind, understanding, and knowledgeable about the entire process – something I really needed after the traumatic arrest night. I was charged [redacted] for representation in the criminal case. I’m not sure how this compares to other lawyers as she’s the first one I’ve used. There’s payment plans if needed. The MVA case is separate and she prepares you well for you to do it on your own – it’s fairly straightforward and I had no issues getting a restricted license. There’s an extra charge for her to be there during the MVA case if you feel you need it. I was well over the legal limit, but Sei-Hee negotiated my DUI down to a DWI. I also got a PBJ by following her instructions on what to do before court. It was also clear she was the most knowledgeable/experienced attorney in the court room. I would definitely recommend her to my friends/family or, god forbid, hire her again for myself if needed.

Due to my own procrastination, I reached out to C. Sie-Hee Arii on a wednesday when my court appearance was that monday. I was arrested for a dui (.15 bac) and about 7 consequent charges which added up to almost $2k in fines. Immediately I felt as if I was putting my case into the proper hands. After going through my original arrest paperwork she found mistakes made by the officer which would help our case. Ultimately all charges we dropped and are going to be expunged. This is better than best case scenario in my opinion and I feel extremely lucky/blessed to find a great attorney at a affordable rate.

I contacted Sei Hee Arii regarding my first DUI do to the review I read here, and I’m glad I did. I was nervous because my BAC was 0.15 which is right at the threshold of a more serious charge. She was able to help talk me through the process of what I needed to do as soon as possible, and attend the appropriate classes. This helped reduce my sentence from supervised PBJ to unsupervised PBJ. She was also able to talk to the counseling center and reduce the time I needed to be there (typically 26 weeks). I would definitely hire her again.

Review of C. Sei-Hee Arii

Star Rating: 5 of 5
Sei-Hee was a tremendous attorney throughout my entire process. I was charged with a DWI and and DUI in Rockville, MD. From our first meeting, Sei-Hee was a careful and strategic attorney. She provided me with exceptional counsel that allowed me to prepare myself not only for the trial, but also the MVA hearing. As a result of her expert counsel, I was able to win my MVA case and prove to the judge that I indeed made a legitimate attempt to provide my blood alcohol content. Her expertise also allowed me to obtain 6 months of unsupervised probation before judgment. As a result of a continuance which was granted to the prosecutor due to the police officer not being available for the first trial, this journey for me lasted 10 months. Throughout this long process, Sei-Hee was phenomenal in keeping me calm and on track. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an honest and skilled lawyer. You can’t get much better than her.

I enlisted the services of Ms. Arii when I got slapped with 7 tickets – 1 being a DUI. Ms. Arii was very responsive and helpful during the whole process. When it came to my court date, she successfully convinced the prosecutor to strike a plea bargain. My 7 tickets were dismissed and I ended up with a PBJ for reckless driving. I am in the process of expunging that from my records. I am very pleased with the outcome and am thankful to Ms. Arii for helping me move on from this.

One of the best DUI Lawyers!

Star Rating: 5 of 5
When I got my 1st DUI, I was worried. I did not know what to expect since I never got into the wrong side of the law. I knew I had to get a good lawyer to help me fight it in court. I decided to call Sei-Hee Arii and she gave me an appointment to go to her office. I saw down and she took notes while she was asking questions and explaining the whole process. This itself made me calmed and relaxed knowing she will do whatever it takes to fight on my behalf in court. She understood I was a student and gave me a great deal! To make a long story short, i did everything she asked me to do and she was able to convince the Judge to reduce my charges to DWI and best of all, my record was cleared! The money I spent was worth it. If [you’re] looking for the best DUI lawyer in Maryland then call Sei-Hee Arii. She is good [at] what she does and I guarantee you she will do whatever it takes for you to get a better trial. Thank you so much!

Sei-Hee is extremely competent and is willing to work with you. I had a DUI charge and she was very thorough about advising me about the different dynamics in court that may impact how I should plead (eg. how the judge typically rules in similar cases, presence of certain witnesses etc). Very responsive and empathetic as well! I’d definitely hire her again

Sei-Hee provided the best representation at the time when my son incurred repeated DUI violations. Not only was she a strong advocate for her client; she also was very [compassionate] and caring, a rare quality that allowed me to remain sane when hope was low. Because she was tenacious and persuasive she was able to influence my son to seek rehabilitation when he was not listening. In the courtroom, she was absolutely brilliant and had the knowledge and skill to get the charges [dismissed].

C. Sei-Hee Arii was truly a godsend. I was facing my second DUI in 9 years. As a single mom, my panic was off the charts. Sei-Hee was a rock during the storm. She had a plan and she gave it to me straight. Yes, I was facing jail time but because of a combination of Ms. Arii’s expert legal knowledge and direction I never saw the inside of a cell. Trust me, she’s who to turn to and she cares. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of work went in to giving her something to go on but if you’re willing to fight, so is she. In a desperate situation I was given hope and a future. Thank you Sei-Hee.

I was charged with DUI, DUI per se, DWI, and failure to control vehicle speed on highway to avoid collision. Sei-Hee found holes in my case and was willing to fight it but I just wanted to get it over with. On the day of trial, Sei-Hee was able to get me the best outcome out of everyone else in court facing similar charges, unsupervised PBJ for the DWI and the rest of the charges dropped. She is very professional and candid which is why I chose her over other attorneys. Highly recommended.

Sei-Hee Arii’s assertiveness in the courtroom is only surpassed by her compassion with her clients. She is a wonder! I exited my last case with the prosecuting attorney looking toward my mother to say, “Thank your attorney, she is something else.” Sei-Hee Arii genuinely cares for her client’s well-being beyond the case and will stop at no end to help. I have known her professionally for 5+ years now and not only has she never let me down, I have never felt like she wasn’t genuinely concerned for my well being. I have made my mistakes (3 criminal charges in 5 years) and Sei-Hee is that which ensured I had the chance to learn from them. I now attend an honor’s college, will graduate in the spring of 2015, and owe it all to her.

Dedicated Legal Representation Leading to Positive Resolution

When I contacted Sei-Hee for my second DWI, I felt certain that jail time was in my future. I was scared of spending time there and of how a second conviction could impact my career. Sei-Hee’s knowledgeable approach and personable demeanor allowed me a shockingly positive resolution – the charges were dropped and she helped me immediately file for expungement upon completion of trial. Her prices were fair and she fights for her clients more than the standard DUI lawyer.

Ms. Arii is [very] skilled a knowledgable lawyer who worked a miracle in my case. I was facing a year in jail, but she was able to make the state prosecutor case look very weak, and was able to convince the judge there was no merit to her argument. When you talk to Ms. Arii you can tell she is on your side and will do all it takes to get you a favorable result. She is well worth the money spent and the peace of mind knowing your lawyer went all out for you.

You’re in GREAT hands with Sei-Hee!

Star Rating: 5 of 5
Hiring Sei-Hee could be the difference between your case getting dismissed or not. That was my experience. In my DUI case I mentioned early on that the officer was using dash cam and asked that we recover the footage. Sei-Hee requested the footage and when my court date came, we hadn’t received anything. She made sure that the judge set a deadline for when the prosecution had to present that information and then filed immediately for the case to be dismissed the very next day after the footage wasn’t delivered. On my next court date, the (different) judge dismissed my case in it’s entirely. If I would have had an attorney who didn’t make a point to get the other side to commit to a date or didn’t follow up immediately to file the paperwork when it didn’t arrive, I would probably have had a different outcome. Sei-Hee knows what she’s doing and will do what it takes to win the case. Follow her instructions exactly and you’re in good hands.

An Attorney That Gave Me A Second Chance in Life

Star Rating: 5 of 5
Although anonymous, I am not ashamed to say that I am a high school student. I was arrested on New Year’s Day, with a .08 BAC. I was given 4 tickets due to my DUI situation. My life was spiraling downwards because of the stupid decision I made, and I continued to agonize over the burden I placed on myself and my whole family until I met Ms. Sei Hee. She was an outstanding lawyer, speaking to me and my mother, what to expect, what to do and what not to do. She gave us as much information as she could possibly provide regarding my case, and the potential consequences I may face in court. Because of her, we took proactive steps as my court date approached, and a week or so beforehand, she gave me a call, telling me that they decided to DISMISS my case!!! I was overjoyed at this news, being ever so grateful to her. Today, I live my life learning an important lesson early in my life, and I am VERY thankful to Ms. Sei Hee for not just helping me out with my situation, but also for guiding me and my parents, reassuring us that everything would be ok.

I was faced with a legal situation (DUI) this summer and immediately turned to Google. After many searches for the Montgomery County area, Sei-Hee’s name kept popping up. I called her and after our initial phone conversation, I knew that she was the lawyer I wanted to hire. She made the process smooth and made sure that I understood all of my responsibility on my end. It was important to me to know what all I could be doing towards my case as far as which classes to take and how to proceed with my 90 day driving suspension. When it came time for my court date, she eased my nerves talking me through the process and what to expect. When I met her in the courtroom that morning I was immediately eased with her knowledge of the proceedings. I personally had a favorable outcome that was not anticipated. Sei-Hee did a fantastic job in preparing me for all outcomes because you truly don’t know what to expect prior to the courtroom. Regardless of what outcome I would have received that day, Sei-Hee was by my side and made me understand everything. I highly recommend her based on her skill, knowledge, and personal skills.

First DUI

Star Rating: 5 of 5
It was the day before thanksgiving and I was on my way home from a friend’s high school reunion and I get pulled over and blow a 0.18, well above the legal limit. Shortly after being released I found Ms. Arii through some online researching. She was very understanding and helped ease my anxiety. Her pricing was also not astronomical as other firms were trying to charge me. Luckily I recorded my altercation on my phone and Ms. Arii did a thorough job in comparing my recording to what the police officer wrote on his report and developed a defense, even if it was a weak one. I felt she was doing everything she could for me to beat this. Long story short, I received the least severe charge, got a PBJ (this did not go on my record as having received a DUI) and 6 months probation.

My husband’s case was pretty difficult with his BAC 0.15 and poor field sobriety test results. Besides he was driving on a wrong way by the time he was caught. His driver license was suspended and taken by the police officer immediately. We were very nervous and needed a strong lawyer. Attorney C. Sei-Hee Arii came up from our online searches and she thoroughly explained and educated us with all kinds of circumstances first. She not only was able to get my husband license back shortly after but also dropped DUI/DWI charges. My husband only paid fines with 1 point of traffic violation. Her professionalism, dedication and passion of caring her clients are above and beyond. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a strong and intelligent lawyer.

I was charged with a DUI in late 2014. I’ve never had any run-ins with the law before and didn’t know where to even start looking for a lawyer to handle my case. I talked to a number of DUI lawyers and ended up choosing Sei-Hee, a decision I’m so glad I made. I wanted Sei-Hee to represent me because she showed genuine interest in my case, whereas I felt like “just another routine DUI case” when I reached out to other lawyers and firms. Sei-Hee is a very understanding person, super responsive, and knows the MoCo court system well. She kept me informed throughout the process and was very helpful in accommodating my schedule and the fact I reside and work in NYC. Additionally, she did her due diligence to look beyond the just the surface of what happened to get the full story. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent DUI lawyer in MoCo.

Extremely pleased with my best case scenario outcome

In a nightmare situation, Sei-Hee helped me not only legally but also psychologically; I’d contacted other lawyers before finding her, and I can honestly say she was the only one that seemed to actually pay attention to my personal, specific situation, offering advice that suited my exact situation – very much unlike the other lawyers I’d contacted (it’s worth mentioning that my initial consultation over the phone was with Sei-Hee herself, not an assistant that couldn’t care less like the others I’d contacted). Sei-Hee was professional, made communication extremely easy, and took time to address a related issue/question that popped up. In such a stressful time, she really did put my mind at ease while being straightforward and honest. The outcome at court was best case scenario – a result due to her ability to present my case (and me as a decent citizen) convincingly. I highly recommend Sei-Hee Arii as a knowledgeable, dependable, and successful attorney.

DWI Case

C. Sei-Hee Arii got my DUI, DWI, and paraphernalia charges reduced to only one DWI charge. When it became clear that the judge would probably find me guilty on this charge, she was able to get me a PBJ. This meant that I would be put on probation for a year, and if I adhered to all of my probationary demands than the DWI would be expunged from my record. I am glad to be DWI free now, and am very thankful for everything that C. Sei-Hee Arri was able to do for me. I could not have made a better decision.

Ms. Arii is nothing short of a miracle worker. I came to her facing what could have ended up being substantial jail time and somehow kept me from serving a single day. She is smart, competent, and always has a plan. I trusted her completely and always felt optimistic with her on my side. She always gave me multiple plans and always came to me honestly and candidly. No amount of money is worth your freedom, and to me that’s why she is priceless.
