Representing People Charged With Crimes in Maryland

When you are charged with a crime, you become a part of the criminal justice system. It is a stressful position to be in, and you have a lot to lose if you are convicted. In addition to prison time, you may lose your driver’s license, the right to vote and have a permanent criminal record. If you have been charged with a crime or are under investigation for a crime, you need serious, experienced criminal law attorneys on your side.

The lawyers at The Law Office of Carroll Drake, L.C., located in Waldorf, Maryland, are experienced in representing adults and juveniles charged with felonies and misdemeanors. We know criminal law and can defend you. The sooner you contact us, the faster we can help you.

We Can Defend Your Rights

In criminal court things can happen fast. The arrest, booking, arraignment and plea bargain are a lot to deal with. Should you plea to a lesser charge just to get it over with?

Sometimes a plea bargain is a better option, but not always. The sooner you contact us, the better. We will examine your case from all angles in order to build a defense strategy for you. Our attorneys are not intimidated by prosecutors, and we take a personal interest in your case.

Drinking and Driving Charges

You depend a lot on your vehicle. When you are charged with a DUI/DWI, your right to drive is immediately suspended. You will be subject to a criminal proceeding and an administrative proceeding. We will represent you in court against the state’s charges, and we will help you regain your driver’s license as practically as possible in the administrative proceeding.

Felony or Misdemeanor?

We defend all crimes including assault, theft, drug possession, juvenile crimes, DUI/DWI and traffic violations. Whether it is classified as minor or serious, we attack it with the same vigor. As a result of an overworked system, public defenders carry large case loads and may see you as just another file to deal with. We see you as an individual in need of our assistance.

If you or someone you know has been charged with a crime, contact us immediately. Free case evaluations are available and we accept Visa and MasterCard.
