Common Questions in Criminal Cases

Will I go to jail?
When charged with a criminal offense, even a first time DUI, there is the potential of facing jail time. Many cases, if properly defended, can help the accused avoid either jail or prison. The commitment, creativity, and skill of the Baltimore criminal lawyer defending you can be pivotal with regard to whether you will face incarceration or walk free of the burden of your charges. Some cases can be negotiated with regard to alternatives such as probation, reduced charges or sentences. Each case is unique, but one rule holds true for all: you must have a quality defender.

How do I know what lawyer to choose?
When you are looking for a criminal defense attorney in Baltimore, there are several important factors to consider. The first one critical matter is the experience of your attorney. When accused of a criminal offense, this is not the time to use a rookie. Attorney Richard Miller is a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys, is accessible, easy to talk with, empathetic and when taking on a case, and will work tirelessly to pursue a favorable outcome. With 32 years of experience, and having served at countless trials, you can be confident that you have a quality defense lawyer fighting for your cause.

Should I plead guilty to DUI?
