Drunk Driving and DUI/DWI Defense Lawyer in Rockville, Maryland
Drunk Driving and DUI/DWI Defense
I am an experienced trial lawyer and DUI/DWI lawyer who has handled hundreds of DUI/DWI cases. If you were stopped for drinking and driving in Maryland and your breath test was in excess of .08 blood alcohol content, or you refused to take a breath test, then time is of the essence. If you fail to act quickly, your privilege to drive will be suspended for up to one year. The consequences of a drunk driving (DUI or DWI) conviction can be far-reaching and have a lasting impact on your life. A skilled criminal defense from an experienced knowledgeable lawyer may be able to help you avoid jail time, skyrocketing insurance rates, or loss of driving privileges.
DUI/DWI charges in Maryland are not easy to defend. For this reason, it is important to hire an lawyer who is experienced in DUI/DWI law and who will spend the time necessary to thoroughly prepare and aggressively defend you. Maryland DUI/DWI Lawyer Thomas G. Witkop successfully completed the training program for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (ICAP) DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Student Course. In other words, he has the exact same training that police in Maryland receive for administering roadside field sobriety tests. This training enables him to interpret what the officers put in their reports and, more importantly, to better cross examine them at trial.
