Drugs, Controlled Substances & Controlled Dangerous Substances: We have seen virtually every kind of drug crime charge there is, and we are ready to defend you including: possession, distribution and sale, possession with intent, possession of paraphernalia, drug trafficking and prescription drug crimes.

Traffic Law:
We can help with the numerous traffic violations you could be charged with, most of which have heavy fines attached, and also could potentially add points to your license often resulting in increased insurance costs.  No matter what you have been charged with, these penalties can seriously affect your finances, career, and life in general.  Fighting traffic tickets is an arduous endeavor, so let us help – we can take care of the paperwork and often many of the courtroom appearances.  Our aim is to get the charges reduced or dismissed as well as reducing or eliminating the points charged to your license, which should prevent additional insurance premiums.

Some of the most commonly occurring violations and penalties we can help with:

  • Driving without a license carries a fine of $200 to $500 or imprisonment for not more than sixty days and no license issued for at least 180 days.
  • Driving with a suspended carries a fine of $500, a surcharge of $250 for three years, and a six-month license suspension.
  • Reckless driving carries a fine of $50 to $200 or imprisonment not exceeding sixty days-or both for even the first offense.
  • Driving uninsured carries a fine of $300 to $1,000, a period of community service as determined by the court, and suspension of driving privileges for one year for the first offense.
