Experience You can Count on from an Attorney You can Trust!

If you have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it is critical that you consult with a DUI defense lawyer as soon as possible. J.R. Francomano has tried hundreds of DUI/DWU cases as a Baltimore County and Harford County State’s Attorney and as a DUI/DWI Defense Attorney. J.R. is a highly qualified DUI defense lawyer in Maryland who will take an aggressive approach to your case and ensures that all legal avenues are explored.

J.R. will personally handle all elements of your case, from the initial meeting to your post trial rights. Facing a DUI/DWI arrest is not a simple matter. Apart from being jailed, there are numerous consequences that one may have to face. Penalties for drunk driving may consist of the following: 

  • Jail time
  • Large fines
  • License suspension
  • Reduced concentration at work
  • Loss of job (Especially those that drive for a living or have a Government Clearance level)

It's important that you take the necessary steps to fight back against these charges. If you've recently been arrested for DUI/DWI, the first thing you need to do is speak with a professional who will evaluate the situation and present you with all of your options. Every case is different, but the goal at Francomano & Francomano is the same.

To minimize the impact a DUI/DWI has on your life by winning the case at trial or having the charges reduced against you.

Our first objective is to avoid a conviction at all costs, and if that cannot be done, then to avoid unreasonably harsh penalties in Court and at the MVA. If you are looking for an aggressive, knowledgeable and personal approach, look no further.
