Losing your driver’s license means losing more than your ability to drive.
The inability to drive often means the inability to work. Maryland may be a progressive state but not when it comes to public transportation. Many of us solely rely on our driver’s licenses to get to work, school, medical appointments, and to take care of our families. Losing the ability to drive in Manhattan or in D.C. can be an inconvenience. In Maryland, it is life-altering.
Judges do not take away one’s driver’s license. However, when a judge finds a person guilty of a traffic offense, that finding, unless the judge strikes the guilty verdict, is a conviction. Convictions, for most offenses, mean “points.” The accumulation of points or convictions for certain offenses means suspension or revocation of a driver’s license or privilege.
An experienced lawyer can protect your rights in traffic cases and can assist you in obtaining the best possible result. This process begins long before you enter the courtroom.

I will tell you in no uncertain terms whether I believe representation is or is not warranted, depending of the facts and circumstances of your individual case.
