  • If you want a rock solid defense, do yourself a favor and sign a retainer.

    I writing this review after my case was heard with Mr. Alpert as my attorney and four (4) DUI related charges being dropped with the exception of one: for swerving. Allegedly, on 25 MAY 2020, I was 'swerving' which is what initiated the State Trooper to make the initial stop. During the traffic stop the Trooper's lights came on. I exited Route 301 and parked my vehicle and waited for further instructions. Without any hesitation, the Trooper asked had I been drinking. Whether I had or not was irrelevant. I was ordered to exit my vehicle to perform the field sobriety test. I was told that I then needed to take the breathylizer. The Trooper stated it would not count in Court and that I could either take the one at the detention center or simply refuse. I stated no. It did not make sense to me that I would need to take a second one. In all, the Trooper placed me under arrest, took my license and drove me to La Plata for processing. I ultimately spent the night in detention and was allowed to leave later in the day. I immediately contacted Alpert Schreyer Poe, LLC to request legal representation. Initially, I worked with Arya Saleh and followed all of the instructions he gave me. I was distraught with the fact that I was in the military and had completed 20 years of service. Something like this for as senior as I was becomes a career ender in the very least. And it has but my retirement is no longer in question. Not to mention, the Navy allows double jeopardy. I believe my Command was awaiting the results before preceding to Mast or Courts Martial. That's not going to happen now. My case was continued on 30 JUL 2020 on the basis that Mr. Alpert's law firm had not received the video surveillance of the night in question during discovery. The Prosecution seemed upset or at least visibly irritated that my lawyer was doing his job to ensure my defense was solid. In all, the judge granted the continuance to 17 SEP 2020. The day we arrived for the trial, Mr. Alpert was prepared. During the trial, he ensured that the Prosecution nor the Trooper who was called as their witness got an inch on a mile to slander my character or allow what the Trooper' thought' to play a role in the execution of his duties. Once the Prosecution rest their case, Mr. Alpert went into beast mode for cross examination. He took us completely through the time up to my arrest and detainment. He asked simple questions that the Trooper only had to confirm yes or no. The Trooper had A LOT of explaining to do! He fumbled and misguided me through much of the traffic stop, completing the DR-15, and entirely had not established a bases for why he asked me to exit my vehicle. His police report had information that was not even in the video surveillance. Mr. Alpert picked apart every single 'clue' he described as his reasoning for arresting me. Mr. Alpert was sharp as a hot knife cutting through butter with laser-like precision. Mr. Alpert even went so far as to point out that there was no way I was impaired. I had followed all the directions being in the far left lane to exiting Rte 301 with no accident and parking my vehicle. I had given my license and registration while answering the Trooper's questions with not one issue. I had gotten out of my vehicle with no assistance. I had followed all of his Commands and due to his own actions had counted clues that were his own fault for the manner in which he gave me instructions. To add insult to injury, the entire 29 minute ordeal from the time I was stopped to being arrested was proven there was no way I was impaired to the point of reasonably being charged or convicted of a DUI. In essence, it was a slam dunk. The rookie Trooper left the court visibly angry because he had messed up quite a bit. Bye Felicia! If you want a rock solid defense, do yourself a favor and sign a retainer. It was THE BEST thing I could have done besides not being the unfortunate soul to encounter a Rookie Cop. Make sure you do EVERYTHING ASP, LLC tell you. Don't and see what happens. You will only put the nails in your own coffin.

  • Arya Saleh is the best lawyer you could hire and worth every penny.
    Arya Saleh is the best lawyer you could hire and worth every penny. He knows the law, is more than comfortable in the court house fighting for his clients and obviously well respected there. Arya Saleh and his team always answered my questions immediately, were specific and clear about steps/actions I needed to take to and most importantly made me feel less anxious about a potentially dooming situation and in the end there was no doom for me because of him.

  • Mr. Alpert’s expertise and excellent work provided me with the best outcome in my case
    I felt it incumbent upon me to write this very positive review about the best DUI lawyer in Maryland, Andrew Alpert. I researched many DUI lawyers in my area, at first, and then, after reading all the glowing reviews about Mr. Alpert, I chose to call his office and speak to him in person. He is easy to get in touch with and if I leave a message with his paralegal, as soon as he gets it, he will call me back. He was always available when I needed to speak to him. He works quickly and efficiently and was very informative, explaining every step of the process to me, as we proceeded with my case, in December of 2019. Mr. Alpert’s expertise and excellent work provided me with the best outcome in my case--even better than I had ever expected!

    For all these reasons, in my personal opinion, if you are seeking the services of the best DUI lawyer in Maryland, definitely get in touch with Mr. Andrew Alpert and he will do more than his best for you!

  • To anyone finding themselves in need of THE BEST trial attorney money can hire I strongly recommend Andrew Alpert.
    In August 2018 I was charged with DUI in Ocean City Maryland By an overzealous state trooper. Upon returning home I began the search for an Attorney, this was not going to be a simple cut and dry case as I had only had 2 drinks but had priors from years ago and this time refused the breathalyzer. After speaking with several attorneys I immediately realized that a "normal" attorney was not going to be able to provide me the results I needed and upon speaking with a state trooper friend was referred to Andrew Alpert. Upon walking into Mr. Alpert's office I was awestruck by the sheer volume of awards and accolades which he has earned over the years (the walls are literally covered with them). After a 15 minute interview, I knew immediately that I had found the best attorney for my situation and retained him on the spot. Throughout the preparation process Mr. Alpert and his staff skillfully advised and directed me on what courses of action I should be taking and what information they would need. On Monday June 3 we had court in Snowhill Md. to say I was nervous walking into this is an understatement, throughout the 9.5 hours of jury trial the states attorney and state trooper did all they could to paint me as an awful criminal deserving of the full penalty of the law. Mr. Alpert literally dissected every aspect of their case bringing in expert witnesses and educating everyone in the room (state trooper) especially on the proper use of field sobriety testing and its shortcomings relating to persons with lower extremities amputations. I was so immensely impressed at how skillful Mr. Alpert flayed the prosecution, verbally removing every shred of their circumstantial evidence piece by piece. At the end of the day the Jury deliberated less than ten minutes and returned a not guilty verdict on all counts. To anyone finding themselves in need of THE BEST trial attorney money can hire I strongly recommend Andrew Alpert and if the need ever arises in my life again he WILL be my first call.

  • Hiring Mr. Alpert was the deciding factor in getting my DUI charges dropped and getting my life and career back on track.

    Mr. Alpert,

    I am writing you this public letter to show my appreciation for all of your hard work over the past couple of months. And I am also writing this with the hopes that somebody will stumble upon this review, and after reading this, will know that hiring you to represent them in DUI/DWI court is the right decision. But first some details about my case.

    Several months ago I was arrested for a DUI and it did not look good. The police officer found me PASSED OUT behind the wheel with a pipe in my hand at 2:30 in the morning. I admitted immediately that I had been drinking and after a field sobriety test, blowing on field I was arrested and charged with a DUI, DWI and several other charges. To make matters worse I work for the Department of Defense and have a Secret security clearance. As a 28 year old working in DC I envisioned myself losing my security clearance and subsequently my career all in one night because I decided to make a bad decision.

    After the arrest I started shopping around for an attorney and prior reviews led me to Mr. Alpert. After some discussion I had decided to retain him as my attorney and the second I did – I watched him turn into a machine. Mr. Alpert is one of the most high profile DUI Lawyers in the area, but it didn’t feel as though he was because of the detail with which he handled my case. Every step we took forward was taken together, he kept me informed of my options and was patient with me. He discussed options and scenarios that could play out and when we finally got to court after waiting two full days (one continuous) – he was ready.

    Throughout the entire day, prosecutors and judges are discussing my case. The prosecutor and arresting officer were present and they were both out to get me. In Montgomery County, everyone knows a DUI (even first offense) will not be taken lightly. Throughout the entire day prosecutors and judges are reviewing and discussing my case, In fact, I was told by a judge that it is ‘Court policy” to charge me with at least one of the DUI offenses.

    As soon as court started I knew where the extra money I spent on my attorney went. He battled RELENTLESSLY for me throughout court which lasted over TWO HOURS. When it came to cross exam the arresting officer he knew the procedures that are supposed to be performed better than the officer. His experience in the courtroom shined as bright as humanly possible – the end result was all DUI related charges being dropped. The prosecutor and arresting officer were absolutely stunned, in fact, everyone in the room was stunned (the evidence against me was overwhelming), everyone except Mr. Alpert.

    Hiring Mr. Alpert was the deciding factor in getting my DUI charges dropped and getting my life and career back on track. Throughout the court date, I listened to lesser lawyers applaud getting a PBJ for their clients as a victory. If you want results and a lawyer that will go to bat for you, I plead that you go with Alpert Schreyer. Although my case is finished he is still working with me to get the paperwork that will help me get this expunged from my record. I thank you for your time, hard work and great attitude. I myself was down and out but you kept me going in the fight. It’s what was needed to be done. I hope you can help others as you did me. You are a golden gift to law.

    Sincerely,

    A veteran that you helped get a second chance

  • If you're like me and want your case over and done with, then Andy is your man.
    Andy got my case done and away with, like it never happened on the criminal side. He was honest and upfront as to what he could affect and what he could not. This was greatly appreciated. What he said was going to happen, in terms of proceedings, happened just as he said. Don't get me wrong, he doesn't promise you the world, but he delivers the stars! If you're like me and want your case over and done with, then Andy is your man.

  • I sought out the best to represent me and was not let down.
    Being a restaurant owner and a direct mail advertiser, I appreciated receiving Albert Alpert's DUI REPORT in the mail. It definitely stood out from the rest of the junk attorney mail clutter that bombarded my mailbox after my DUI/DWI charge became public record.

    I especially liked that Mr Alpert was very aggressive on entertaining the "Not Guilty" proclamation. His experience navigating all the information available of record, on discovery, and literally "on the fly" is worth every extra dime you might pay for his services. 

    I sought out the best to represent me and was not let down, not even a smidgen. I received the best and had the most desirable outcome one could wish for.

    I am thankful that Mr. Alpert invests in his professional image. That is what attracted me to his practice. When the dust settled, choosing Mr. Alpert is what gave me and my situation the best advantage and results.
