I was arrested for a first-time DWI/DUI in Germantown, Maryland. On top of these charges, I also refused the breathalyzer at the station, immediately triggering actions against my driver’s license. Reeling from my arrest and having no clue how to face these charges, I needed representation fast.
As soon as I left the police station, I resolved to find the best DWI/DUI lawyers in Maryland to represent my case. After a quick Google search, I discovered the Alpert Schreyer Law Firm. I learned their team holds numerous awards and certifications in the field and boasts the only Board-Certified DUI Defense Attorney in Maryland, Andrew Alpert. I requested a consultation that night. The next morning, I received a call from Christian Hartman. Mr. Hartman was knowledgeable and transparent about the process, and most importantly, compassionate. The initial consultation put me at ease. Experiencing that level of consideration upfront assured me that Alpert Schreyer was the right choice for me.
Right away, Mr. Hartman and his colleague, Keri Olivero, detailed a plan to mitigate my charges. Both Mr. Hartman and Ms. Olivero were responsive and knowledgeable, making me feel supported every step of the way. Each recommendation was strategic and helpful, guaranteeing that I, as a defendant, would put my best foot forward.
Mr. Alpert represented me at trial. Prior to trial, Mr. Alpert reviewed my mitigation plan, outlined the facts of my case, and offered insight on how the state might respond. Mr. Alpert has extensive knowledge and experience in DWI/DUI proceedings, and he made sure I was aware of all the options available to me. I was facing a possible plea agreement for DWI with a great chance of securing a PBJ (thanks to the pre-trial activities recommended by the team). Luckily, my arresting officer did not show in court and my case was dismissed. Mr. Alpert guided me through the next steps, immediately filing record expungement on my behalf. Even if my case had been heard, I am confident I would have received the best possible outcome (PBJ) thanks to the professional guidance from Alpert Schreyer.
I’m thrilled my case was dismissed, but I will never forget the lessons learned from this. I hit rock bottom when I was arrested. The pre-trial activities they recommended didn’t just build a solid case, but gave me the education and support I needed.
I feel like I have a second chance.
