How Our Lawyers Can Help You Fight Traffic Charges

A DUI defense attorney with an understanding of the legal process can question the validity of your charges, asking key questions:

While many think they are guilty as soon as they are pulled over, an experienced DUI defense attorney can often make a significant difference in the case. We’ll diligently work to protect your driver’s license and limit the consequences these allegations may have on your future.

We defend clients across Maryland against all drunk driving charges, including:

We understand that the majority of drunk driving defendants have never been arrested before and therefore desire immediate answers to questions regarding jail, driver’s license, employment, security clearance, CDL and the like. We understand that an arrest is a frightening and traumatic experience and that you feel lost and scared not knowing where to turn.

In Maryland, DUI and DWI (Driving While Impaired) are serious offenses with potentially long term consequences; however, rest assured all is not lost simply because you were charged.

Most people are not familiar with Maryland’s complex web of DUI laws; they do not know their legal rights when they find themselves handcuffed and sitting in the back of a police vehicle. For example, when being arrested for drunk driving in Maryland you do not have to perform any field sobriety tests when requested to do so.

You may have been offered a preliminary breath test or PBT while still on the street which is different from the formal breath test performed at the police station. A police officer should have told you that there are no consequences for your refusal to take the PBT test and that the results of the PBT test are not admissible by the State of Maryland against you. If the result was favorable to you however, your Maryland DUI lawyer can potentially help you use it in Court to help prove your innocence.


If you have been charged with drunk driving, you face a variety of potential punishments; the most serious is up to one year in jail for a first offense. Additionally, you can lose your privilege to drive regardless of whether you are ultimately found guilty in criminal Court.

A detailed and comprehensive knowledge of Maryland DUI laws is important to a successful defense. There are few law firms that have DUI Trial Teams that have the proven skill and ability to defend the most serious cases in Maryland and that have an extensive track record to prove it. Contact us and let us show you what we can do to help starting with prompt, knowledgeable, friendly support anytime day or night.

Drunk Driving/Driving Under the Influence & Driving While Intoxicated (DUI /DWI)

A conviction of Driving under the Influence (DUI), Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or other serious traffic offense may affect your employment, your privilege to drive, your finances, and your freedom. If you have been charged with drunk driving, DUI or DWI or another serious traffic offense (including driving without a license or driving with a suspended license), you need an aggressive defense attorney who is knowledgeable of the law in your jurisdiction, and has experience handling serious traffic offenses in court. In addition, to fully protect your driving privileges, you must often proactively submit paperwork requesting an MVA (Motor Vehicle Administration) hearing within ten days of being charged with a Drinking and Driving offense in Maryland. Failure to do so could result in the loss of driving privileges (i.e. suspension of your license). When requesting a hearing, one should be cognizant of any legal defenses that may be raised at a future hearing. Those defenses may be raised in writing contemporaneously with the hearing request.

Driving Without a License/Driving with a Suspended License

Traffic charges relating to licensing (Driving without a License, Driving on a Suspended, Revoked, Canceled, or Expired License) can lead not only to jail time, they can prevent or delay you from obtaining a valid license in the future. An attorney handling these types of matters must not only be familiar with the procedure in Court, but also the collateral consequences relating to the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) or Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). At The Law Offices of Demeksa Oli, we approach each traffic case taking into consideration the client’s entire set of needs, so that the best strategy is determined only after careful consideration of both the administrative (MVA/DMV) and criminal consequences of the decision.
