Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

DUI Lawyer MarylandIf you have been arrested on a DUI or DWI charge in Maryland or in the surrounding areas, you may find it a relief to talk to a DUI lawyer Lanham MD residents have come to trust.

Even though driving while under the influence (DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI) are illegal for good reasons- it is unsafe for the driver and others on the roads and sidewalks- there are many situations where charges are made when the arresting officer/s did not have sufficient evidence to suspect that a driver was under the influence or intoxicated. It can be difficult to fight these charges which is why many people find it helpful to have a lawyer on their side who understands the law and knows how to use it and to fight for their client’s rights.

Regardless of whether or not there was just cause in your arrest, most people do not have the time, knowledge, resources, and patience, to successfully deal with a DUI on their own. While enlisting the help of a lawyer is no guarantee of the outcome of your case, it often helps people who have been accused of driving while under the influence to feel less anxious about their future and to feel less alone in this difficult time.

A DUI charge, even before you have been convicted or even had a hearing before a judge, may give you jail time and have your driving privileges suspended. There are timelines to be adhered to and voluminous amounts of paperwork to be dealt with in order prevent some people from more jail time and/or to limit the amount of time a person’s driver’s license is suspended.

A person can be arrested on a DWI charge for being on prescription medications that they are taking in accordance with their doctor and the drug manufacturer’s instructions. Many people have medical conditions that may make them appear to be intoxicated (such as poor balance or speech impediments, etc.) when they are not.

Many people who have been accused of driving while under the influence or while intoxicated have found it helpful to have a DUI lawyer Lanham MD is fortunate to have in its midst, on their side.

In many states, a conviction for driving while under the influence or while intoxicated, is a criminal charge. If an accident occurs where there are serious injuries or fatalities, the intoxicated driver may be convicted of a felony. Both of these are convictions that can stay on people’s records and cause them difficulties long after they have served their initial punishments. A DUI or DWI conviction can make it difficult for a person to keep their regular job and to find employment in the future. It can negatively cause a person’s immigration status. It can take away or prevent a person from obtaining security clearances and take away a person’s qualifications for jobs and volunteer positions.

A DUI charge or conviction can have a big emotional toll on the accused and his or her family and friends. It can cause judgement and mistrust from the accused’s family, friends and other community members. People who have been arrested for driving while under the influence very often suffer from anxiety and depression.

While talking to a lawyer will not be able to magically erase your charge or conviction, it may make you to feel less alone in this unfortunate situation.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
