Driving Without a License
Most people need a car to get to work, take care of their families and manage life’s demands. Unfortunately, there are those who are unable to get a license, such as undocumented immigrants. If you are unable to get a license and were arrested for driving without a license, you need a strong defense. Our attorneys will aggressively pursue your interests, collect necessary evidence in your case, and seek to defeat your charges.
Driving on a Suspended License
After a driving or traffic offense, you could face license suspension. In many cases, people will lose their license without even knowing it. If you have been arrested for driving on a suspended license, you can take action to protect your rights. A criminal driving offense could result in jail time, fines, or license revocation. We will aggressively fight back against the charges.
Restore Your Driving Privileges
There are many ways you can lose your driver’s license. Sometimes, licenses are suspended for administrative reasons and the drivers are unaware that they are driving on suspended licenses. In criminal driving offense cases such as driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while impaired (DWI), drivers should be made aware that their licenses will be suspended if they do not request a hearing.
We Can Represent You at Administrative Hearings
Regardless of the reason you lost your license, you will likely have to appear at a Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA)/Office of Administration Hearings (OAH) hearing to get your license back. If your license was suspended for repeat traffic violations or criminal offenses, it is advisable to have an attorney represent you. Because we understand the criminal defense side of license suspension, we may be able to get the charges reduced or dismissed.

Do Not Risk an Arrest for Driving Without a Valid License
The state can suspend your license for numerous administrative reasons, including failure to maintain auto insurance, failure to pay a traffic ticket, failure to pay other fines and failure to pay child support. Clearing the underlying charge may restore your driver’s license in these cases.
Your license may also be suspended for repeat traffic violations and serious offenses such as accumulating eight points on your license, a Breathalyzer test refusal, DUI/DWI conviction, hit-and-run conviction, driving without a license or driving on a suspended license. We can argue for reduced penalties as well as a hardship license so you can restore your driving privileges. In DUI cases, we can argue for an ignition interlock device if that is the only way to obtain limited driving privileges.
Were you ticketed or arrested while driving through Maryland? Our attorneys represent out-of-state drivers who have lost their Maryland driving privileges. In many cases, we can appear at hearings on your behalf so you do not have to return.
Suspended Driver’s License
In Maryland, traffic tickets for violations such as speeding or reckless driving put points on your driver’s license. If you accumulate enough points, your license can be suspended. Other traffic offenses and administrative violations can also result in a license suspension.

- Refusing to take a Breathalyzer test
- Driving under the influence of drugs
- Conviction for a hit-and-run accident
- Failure to maintain auto insurance
- Failure to pay a traffic ticket
