Every county in Maryland handles cases differently and has its own quirks. Therefore, its important to hire a traffic ticket lawyer in Maryland who is familiar with the particular county in which you are charged. A Maryland traffic attorney who is familiar with your county should be comfortable with the judges, prosecutors, and how things generally operate there.
In Prince George’s County, Maryland, the State is very practical and generally fair and reasonable when it comes to “jailable” or “serious” traffic offenses. Unless you are charged with a DUI, the State is usually not that concerned with how many times your license in Maryland has been suspended or how many PBJs you’ve received from driving an uninsured vehicle. The name of the game in Prince George’s County is to fix the problem. Of course, this makes perfect sense and is the general policy for many of these laws in the first place.
You will be helping yourself and your case more than you know if you can simply get a license, pay all of those old tickets, show proof of insurance, and otherwise take care of the problem. Most Maryland traffic issues are an easy fix and a Maryland traffic attorney can tell you what you need to do to fix certain things.
As always, even if you fix the problem, they State could still choose to prosecute you. However, if you have taken care of the issue, they will be less motivated and less likely to go forward with the entire case.
When faced with a traffic offense in Prince George’s County, its still better to be cautious and consult with an experienced Maryland traffic lawyer.
