This book was an eye-opener that made me realize that not every lawyer was prepared to handle my DUI case. There are so many moving pieces to DUI cases and understanding them can be the difference between a PBJ and dropped charges. Reading this book helped me in choosing the right attorney for my situation to ensure that I was represented in the most advantageous way possible. Everyone should read this book, whether they have been charged with a DUI or not. It will give you the information you need to make an informed decision when choosing an attorney to represent you, regardless of the situation.
You have only 10 days from the date the police officer stopped you to protect your driver's license.
If you have been arrested for DUI in Maryland you should contact Scott and at least request a free copy of his book on Maryland DUI from him. Written for the consumer, Scott walks you step by step through the legal process and a really cool methodology for choosing the right lawyer for you. You don't want to hire a "dump truck" lawyer. (Scott explains that term in his book!)
(That attorneys across the State of Maryland probably don't want you to know!)
The appearance of this book is long overdue. When you or someone you care about has received a DUI charge, the world becomes a scary place ... clear thinking becomes evasive. People need to be, and want to be, directed through the steps of the judicial system following a drinking related charge. “How to Choose a DUI Lawyer in Maryland” will take you down the path so you end up with an attorney that will provide an effective structure to prepare for your court appearance, resulting in an end result that should be fair and just.
Thank you, Scott Athen ... this book will serve the public well!
When not fighting for clients, I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughters, goose hunting, and going to both Baltimore Ravens and Baltimore Orioles games.
