What Our Clients Says

Lisa, Baltimore County

I can’t thank you enough for all that you have done for me in the past three years. In May of 2005, I got my 1st DUI and I didn’t know what to do or who to turn to for help. After looking on the Internet and reading your testimonials, I knew that you were the right guy for the job. When I contacted you, you called me right back, met with me on a holiday and reassured me that everything would be all right. Without hesitation you jumped headfirst into my case and the result… no jail time.

Lisa, Baltimore County

Anne Arundel County

I wanted to write you a thank you letter so others may know the work you do. In fact, I chose you because of the word of others and now I want to add my own story. It was foreign to me to be in trouble, let alone to be charged with an extremely serious alcohol related offense.You work hard and you deliver big. Other people should know that about you when looking for a qualified attorney to defend their DUI. If qualified representation is needed, you are the man for the job.

Anne Arundel County

M.G

I am still in awe of what yourself and your associates have accomplished for me in and out of the courtroom last week and want to take this time to thank you for your truly exceptional work. I hardly know where to begin in my gratitude except from the beginning. When I called you just days before the court date, I had already resigned myself to at least six months in jail and a $3,000 fine for a fourth DUI offense. This is what the hack attorney I had retained told me was the best outcome and that I should be glad.

It is with the utmost of respect and appreciation I send you this testimonial. After being arrested for my third DUI, we discussed all of my options and developed our defense strategy. At 39 years old, I was facing sure jail time and the loss of a very lucrative career. Your positive optimism and genuine concern was very reassuring and made me feel more comfortable sorting through all the possible outcomes. Even with a hangman judge on the bench, we not only had the charges reduced.

Bruce sorry for being such a pain! Although being stopped for a DUI as well as possession of cocaine was pretty scary for me, I would have lost my job. I have no idea what you did but thanks for getting the DUI and the possession of cocaine charge dropped to possession of paraphanalia only. You did save my life. You will be recommened.

Queen Anne's County

Baltimore City

I'm glad my friend encouraged me to see you, even after I already retained a different lawyer. As I told you, I did not have that comfort level that you gave me. Having to pay a second lawyer was nothing, considering you walked me out of court on my second alcohol violation (even with the accident). Just like you promised. Your awesome! Best wishes for the future..

Baltimore City

Howard County

You are simply the best damn lawyer I know! I am not proud to be stopped weaving between lanes with a strong odor of alcohol on my breath and caught on police video. I am not proud to have been drinking all evening and have a citizen call in a driving complaint. I am however proud to have you as my lawyer. All alcohol charges dismissed.

Howard County

I have managed to stay out of trouble my whole life, so you can imagine my discomfort when I got arrested for a DWI. I am sure that my job would not have looked upon this favorably if they found out. I didn't know what to think when you suggested the state may have problems; but apparently you did. "Case Dismissed!" Thanks for handling my case so aggressively.

Howard County

Carroll County

Bruce, I was told you were the "go to" guy when in a pinch. Despite being a first DWI offense, I knew I was in big trouble when my truck flipped over. I am grateful that God was looking out for me that night and I am grateful that you were looking out for me in Court. Thanks for sending me home.

Carroll County

Baltimore City

You did exactly what you said you would and I respect that. They find me in the car, drunk. I admitted to the cops that I'd been drinking and I was gone. You said "not to worry." Administrative Hearing- NO ACTION. Criminal-trial NOT GUILTY. Unreal! What can I say? Thank you!

Montgomery County

It is with the utmost of respect and appreciation I send you this testimonial. After being arrested for my third DUI, we discussed all of my options and developed our defense strategy. At 39 years old, I was facing sure jail time and the loss of a very lucrative career.

Carroll County

Thank you for the great results on my MVA hearing and my DUI case. You found mistakes made by the police and worked their case until they had nothing left. You save me from having to deal with a probation before judgment, which would have been both a pain.

FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I/must I tell a police officer if I am stopped?
When stopped by a police officer you are required to provide the officer with your driver’s license, automobile registration and proof of insurance, when requested. You are not required to answer other questions, especially questions regarding your sobriety, where you have been or where you are going. Officers are trained to engage suspects in conversation in order to monitor their responses. They monitor speech pattern to determine if there is alcohol on the breath or if the speech is slurred.
The police officer failed to read me the Miranda rights, do I win?
The Miranda rights are information that is read to the Defendant when he is arrested and taken into custody. These rights are given to the Defendant so he knows that he does not have to answer questions which will later be used against him in a court of law. The Miranda rights do not attach when a driver is first stopped because the driver is not in custody or arrested at that time. Therefore, anything that is said to an officer at that time can be used against him. Later, if the driver is arrested and removed to the station house, the driver should be “Mirandized” because he is now in police custody. Once in custody, if the officer asks a question without providing the Defendant Miranda warnings, the response to the question, if incrimination may be able to be suppressed in court.
What does a police officer look for when he effectuates a traffic stop?

When a police officer stops a suspect for possible DWI, the officer is trained to look for several “clues” to help him make a determination regarding the sobriety of the suspect. The clues are largely derived from the research of the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTA). The NHTA prints a manual which law enforcement officers are trained to follow in alcohol related stops. A few of the clues include:

1. Effectuating an improper turn (turns with too large/small a radius)
2. Repeatedly crossing the double yellow lane
3. Striking objects on the roadway
4. Excessive weaving or swerving between lanes, erratic driving
5. Driving too slow (less than 10mph) below speed limit or too fast (necessitating a stop)
6. Stopping in a traffic lane without reason
7. Following too closely behind the vehicle in front
8. Braking the vehicle in lane of travel erratically or without cause
9. Signaling inconsistent with driving actions
10. Driving with vehicle headlights off
Should I perform the field sobriety tests if asked?
In a word, NO. Field Sobriety Tests (FSTs) are generally not a good idea. The problem with FSTs is that they are typically given on the side of the road or on a nearby parking lot, at night, in the presence of an officer, under stressful inquisition type circumstances by an individual whose primary motivation is accumulating evidence to use against you in Court.
Should I pay my tickets/Fines before going to court?
No! Pay nothing before going to court. When you pay a ticket you are essentially admitting your guilt to the charge. Your record will reflect a guilty finding as a result of you paying the ticket. If you go to court, you may not be found guilty or the ticket may be dropped by the state. Therefore, do not pay any tickets before going to court.
