Even First-Time Convictions Can Have Long-Term Consequences
If you have been charged with drunk driving in Maryland, it is important to consult with a skilled criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Anything you say to the police can be used against you.
I am Dontrice Patience Hamilton, a criminal defense attorney serving clients in Rockville, Maryland, Washington, D.C., and throughout the surrounding region. I know how to fight DUI/DWI charges and have a proven record of success achieving positive results for my clients.
Strong Defense Against Drunk Driving Charges
Maryland police are aggressive in making drunk driving stops, and prosecutors push for the harshest penalties. If you have been charged with DUI/DWI, don’t panic. Now is the time to act.
I am well-versed in successful drunk driving defense strategies and will explore every aspect of the stop and arrest to expose weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. Did the police have reasonable suspicion to pull you over? Did they have probable cause to arrest you? Were the breath and/or field sobriety tests properly conducted by qualified personnel? These are questions I consider in every case.
Whatever the circumstances of your case, I will aggressively pursue the best possible outcome, whether it be dismissal, reduced charges or acquittal.
Representing College Students Charged With DUI/DWI
When a college student or minor is charged with DUI/DWI, his or her educational and employment future is at stake. Since the consequences of a drunk driving conviction can keep you from getting into the school of your choice or finding employment in the future, it is wise to prevent the conviction from getting on your record in the first place.
I provide knowledgeable criminal defense representation to students who attend The Catholic University of America, the University of Maryland and other area schools. I defend students against drunk driving charges as well as related charges such as underage drinking and possession of fake IDs.
