Frederick Traffic Ticket Lawyer

Skilled Representation Against Speeding Tickets, DUI/DWI and More

Penalties such as steep fines, having your license suspended or revoked, and time in jail can be the end result of traffic tickets and moving violations. In such cases, it is a great advantage to retain an experienced Frederick traffic ticket attorney from my firm to defend you. A good case in point is a DUI/DWI conviction in our state.

If your blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08% or higher when you were placed under arrest, you can be charged with DWI. For a first offense you may be fined up to $1,000 and a second conviction can result in a $2,000 fine. In Maryland, when you accumulate 12 points against your driving record, your license is immediately revoked. If you are found guilty of DWI, it is 12 points against your record and thus your driving privileges will be lost.

Those who are found to have a BAC of between .04% and .07% are charged with DUI which is considered a lesser crime. Conviction for first-time DUI can be punished by fines as much as $500, up to 60 days in jail and 8 points against your record. If you already have 4 points on your driving record and are found guilty of DUI, the total can result in your license being revoked.

It is crucial to make certain that traffic tickets and other violations are correctly resolved so as to reduce or eliminate the effect on your driving record and other penalties. Approximately 75% of those in Frederick drive their car to work. Most people will suffer extreme inconvenience when the legal right to drive is lost. If you are a taxicab, truck, limousine or other commercial driver, you will be unemployed and unable to earn a living.

The Law Office of David Cahn is dedicated to providing you with the most knowledgeable and effective traffic ticket defense possible. For years, I have been successfully assisting individuals with speeding, red light and other tickets. My practice extends as well to people accused of driving an uninsured vehicle, hit & run, DUI/DWI, driving without a license and other offenses. My first goal in your case is either to get your charges dismissed or to win outright. When this is not achievable, I then strive to get your charges reduced and by this lessen any penalties you face.

How a Traffic Ticket Attorney Can Help You Fight Points and Criminal Charges

Although it may be obvious why a person accused of hit and run would want an attorney, it may not be so obvious for some violations. Traffic tickets are issued by the thousands but are not always deserved. When you simply pay the fine it is admitting guilt and points are assessed against your record. In some cases, it can result in your license being suspended. Similarly, although you may have been charged with a traffic violation, it does not mean that you have to found guilty. While there are multiple attorneys who advertise that they "handle" traffic violations, I have an advantage that most do not.

For many years, I served in the U.S. Department of Justice and as a prosecutor with the Kings County District Attorney's Office. I worked thousands of cases from DUI/DWI situations to attempted murder. During that time, I gained invaluable behind the scenes experience on the methods used by law enforcement to gather and compile evidence. I also learned how prosecutors prepare their cases as well as how they conduct themselves during negotiations and in the courtroom. I use this experience and insight to investigate, research and find the flaws in the prosecutor's case against you.


There is another service that I endeavor to provide if you have already been convicted of a driving offense. For certain traffic violations, it is possible to get your record expunged. Expungement means that records of your prior conviction maintained by the police, motor vehicle registration and the courts will be destroyed. It also means that they cannot be used in future court actions. Another benefit is that prospective employers will not be able to see a conviction in your background check.

From a minor ticket to the most serious of traffic offenses, the state compiles a record of your driving infractions. If you depend upon your license for work, transportation and daily life, you don't want to risk losing your driving privileges. Nor do you want to needlessly face time in jail or pay large fines. Fortunately, there are many ways to defend unjust charges. At times, I am able to use my experience as a former prosecutor to negotiate on your behalf and obtain a favorable result to a difficult case. You don't always have to settle for a conviction or the full penalties of the law. My record for clients is testimony to that fact.
