Bethesda Law

It has been over 30 days since my MVA hearing so I'm wondering if it's too late for me to request an appeal? Or if I have any options at this point?
You have 30 days to appeal or your appeal rights are barred. If the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, you can...
Visiting family out of state. Had 4 drinks in 3 hours. Stopped for speeding. Took gaze test. Declined to take other tests. Arrested for refusal and charged with DWI. Blood taken at police station. Released on bail and licensed returned. Hired local attorney for license hearing and state hearing. What should they do in MD while things are playing out in the other state?
You should speak with your attorney in that state about what the procedure is for a potential suspension. Until that...
I may be moving to Maryland to apply for registration as a landscape architect. One of the questions on the Maryland State Board application form reads, "[h]ave you ever been convicted in any state or Federal Court of a felony or of a misdemeanor DIRECTLY [emphasis added] related to the fitness and qualification to practice landscape architecture?" I don't want to misrepresent myself, but I would be inclined to think that a DUI does not DIRECTLY relate to the practice of landscape architecture. I would appreciate advice on how to proceed with answering the question-thanks for your time.
While the full context of how this question appears within the questionnaire may shed further light, it would seem that...
I got my 3rd dwi in 09 w/one year revocation in NY. I didn't bother to reapply after one year and just found out that new regulations were put in place in 2012 effectively denying restorations for six years for people with 3 or more alcohol/drug related offenses with no other serious driving offense. Now if MD has a less stricter law and I qualify under their law will they honor that and let me restore my license there? As of today my license has been revoked for 3.6 years. Your insight will be highly appreciated!
Maryland will not issue a license if you are suspended or revoked in any other state.
I was charged with an alcohol related traffic offense in Montgomery County, where my permanent address is . However, I reside in Baltimore for school. My lawyer has asked me to obtain Character Reference Letters. I have numerous friends who are law enforcement officers in the Baltimore area; City, County and MDTA. I know that given this is my first offense many of them have said they have no problem vouching for me. I have heard that they could face repercussions from their department for providing me with such a reference. My questions are: Is the likelihood of backlash high/ are they even allowed to provide me with such a letter, if so with what limitations (I've heard no letterhead)? Will a letter from a LEO in a neighboring jurisdiction help that much or is it discounted as non-local?
Since you mentioned having an attorney already, these questions are best directed back to your attorney, especially...
My son got charged with a DUI awhile ago. The case was Nolle Prosequi, however the charge is still on his record. He just finished his masters degree and is interviewing for positions now. His record needs to be expunged immediately ( 2 weeks maximum). As a parent whose invested so much ($100k +) in tuition over the past 6 years, I would hate to see a great career opportunity pass by due my childs record not being expunged. Every lawyer we talk to says 90 to 120 days. That is totally unacceptable! Just tell us how much it is going to cost? Are there any SUPER lawyers out there that can get the job done, if so please give me a rate/quote? Kindest Regards,
You can go on the Montgomery County Courts site and get the paperwork and instructions. You can also have an attorney...
