Driving Under the Influence (DUI)/Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) 

In Maryland, you can be charged with a DUI if you have a .08 blood alcohol concentration (BAC) or above on a breathalyzer test; or, even below .08 if you fail to perform satisfactorily on standard field sobriety tests.  In either case, you risk imprisonment, fines, loss of your driving privileges and the and interlock requirements.

Traffic/MVA hearings 

A “simple” ticket isn’t always as simple as you may think.

Drug Possession and Drug Distribution Charges 

Drug possession and distribution crimes are a focus of law enforcement here in Maryland and the Courts come down hard on people involved in drug crimes. If you have been charged with a drug-related offense it is imperative that you retain counsel as early as possible to get the best possible outcome for your case. Delays can compromise your defense. We offer free initial consultations in all criminal matters.

Domestic violence 

Domestic violence charges can have serious impact on other areas of your life including security clearances, your career, and custody arrangements. If you’ve been accused of violence by a family member or significant other, you’ll need an advocate to minimize the charges’ impact. Ferrante and Dill attorneys are very experienced in these types of cases and there is no charge for the initial consultation.

Kids occasionally make bad decisions. Sometimes those decisions result in criminal charges. In some cases, a child may even be treated as an adult under the law. As a parent, it can be terrifying trying to figure out the best way to keep your kid’s mistake from having life-long consequences. Our juvenile defense attorneys have represented many children in both the juvenile and adult systems.
