Experienced DUI Defense

u Being arrested for a DUI or DWI is a serious matter for which you should immediately  get the services of an experienced DUI/DWI lawyer like Allen Schuldenfrei. Besides facing potential jail time, you may also be facing the loss of your driving privileges, points on your driving record and higher insurance rates.

Mr. Schuldenfrei has successfully been representing clients charged with DUI/DWI and criminal cases for nearly 30 years.

It is important to act quickly after an arrest because by law you only have 30 days from your arrest to request a hearing or to install an ignition interlock to stop the MVA suspension from kicking in.

Mr. Schuldenfrei handles all the cases himself and doesn't pass them on to others. When you will meet with Mr. Schuldenfrei, he will explain the process to you and thoroughly review the case with you. He will stand by your side and hold your hand throughout the entire process. When reviewing the case he will see whether the stop was lawful, whether the cop had the legal right to have you exit the car to perform the field sobriety tests, and whether he had the right to ask you to take the breath test. Many of the field sobriety tests are designed for you to fail and he will challenge these tests if improperly given.

In preparing for trial, Mr. Schuldenfrei will review the police videotape of the stop if there is one. He will file pretrial motions to suppress statements and evidence, if possible, which can result in reduced or sometimes even complete dismissal of the DUI charges.

Allen Schuldenfrei also has extensive experience dealing with cases involving hit and run, fleeing and eluding, speeding, and provisional driver license cases. He also represents clients charged with criminal misdemeanors and felonies, violation of probation, expungements, and appeals.

Mr. Schuldenfrei is a member of the Maryland Criminal Defense Attorneys' Association.
