Silver Spring Traffic Crimes Lawyer

Traffic Violations Attorney Defending Clients in Silver Spring, MD

The public transportation system in Montgomery County, MD leaves a lot to be desired. Getting around by bus can be incredibly time-consuming, and might mean being dropped off a mile away from your destination. Using public transportation while carrying a week's worth of groceries, or when you need to be somewhere on time, might be wildly impractical or impossible, not to mention unsafe. This makes driving an essential part of most people's lives. Unfortunately, being convicted of a traffic offense - or several traffic offenses - can mean losing your driver's license.

The Law Offices of Gerstenfield & Demirji, PC. is experienced in helping people accused of traffic offenses fight to keep their driving privileges or even avoid conviction. Losing your license can interfere with many aspects of your life. You might be left without reliable transportation to work, causing you to lose your job or face disciplinary action. If you are not fortunate enough to live near a grocery store, you may end up relying on a costly delivery service. Our attorneys will do all we can to protect you against this harsh consequence.


DUI - driving with a BAC over 0.08 or while intoxicated by drug use - and DWI - driving with a BAC of 0.07 and showing signs of intoxication - can both mean losing your driving privileges or jail time. Both are misdemeanor crimes rather than violations, like a traffic ticket.

There are many strategies our lawyers may be able to use to defend you. We may challenge the results of your field sobriety test or blood or breath test. We find that these tests are not always as accurate as the police make them out to be. Our goal will be to keep your charge from interfering with your life as much as possible.

Driving Without a License

Driving without a license is often committed by juveniles who have a learner's permit and try to drive alone. It can also be committed by adults who have been unable or unwilling to obtain a license. You may lose your ability to get a license for a period of time if you are convicted of this offense.

Driving on a Suspended License

Driving on a suspended license is one of the most common traffic crimes. Many who are accused of this offense did not know that their license was suspended, often due to failure to address a citation in a timely manner.

Fleeing and Evading the Police

Not pulling over for a police officer is a serious crime you could be jailed for. Failure to pull over is called fleeing and evading. This crime is considered dangerous to the public, as people can get hurt in police chases very easily.

Fleeing the Scene of an Accident

Anyone involved in a traffic accident is required to stop and remain at the scene to wait for police. Leaving the area after a car crash is a criminal offense, unless you had to leave to get emergency medical attention or moved a reasonable distance away for safety reasons.

Reckless Driving

Reckless driving is something of a catch-all offense that covers almost any type of driving that shows an extreme disregard for the safety of others. This offense can cover a wide range of actions, from driving at excessive speeds to recklessly passing multiple vehicles using a lane where oncoming traffic could be present or weaving in and out of traffic in a dangerous fashion.
