Criminal Defense Since 1993
Imagine that you are vacationing in Ocean City, Maryland. Now imagine that you're pulled over for a routine traffic violation after having dinner and drinks with friends or family. Then imagine that you are asked to perform a series of field sobriety tests and were given a PBT Breathalyzer on the scene, which shows .08 blood alcohol concentration (BAC). What do you do? Should you take the breath test at the police station? In Maryland, your refusal to take the breath test at the station could result in your license being suspended. In Maryland, if you are charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while impaired (DWI) by alcohol, you will receive several tickets or citations and you will be wondering what they all mean. We will help you through the confusion.
You should call Frank Benvenuto, P.A. Attorney at Law, a skilled "driving while intoxicated" (DWI) defense attorney. As a native of Ocean City, Attorney Benvenuto understands the peculiarities of Maryland and Worcester County. For example, did you know that Worcester is the only county in Maryland with two district courts? Where you are charged, be it the circuit or district court, will make a difference in your case. The prosecutor will make a difference in your case. And your selection of a criminal defense lawyer will make a difference in your case. I have lived in this area my entire life. I have worked with (and against) the various Distict Attorneys' offices and know the characteristics of the local courts and judges. It's this kind of experience that may help get the charges against you reduced, plead down, or thrown out completely.
We know that sometimes good people make mistakes. We seek to minimize our clients' maximum regret.

Worcester County Criminal Defense and Drug Crime Lawyer
Results are important. While past results are not a guarantee of future success, we can say that we've been able to help thousands of clients since opening up our law office doors in 1993. Drug charges can escalate to a felony offense, depending upon the type of drug (marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, prescription drugs, etc.) that is seized, its quantity or weight, and its schedule (CDS classification). It is important to remember that a drug conviction can result in a record and/or jail time and can severely affect your ability to find gainful employment. Nearly all of our clients have the same two questions:
- Will I go to jail? Not if we can help it. We pursue all avenues of defense - from legal technicalities to negotiation to trial.
- Will I have a criminal record? Not if we can help it. Whether it is getting criminal charges dropped, a plea bargain or a not guilty verdict, we will work to keep your criminal record clear of the current charge.
