Frequently Asked Questions

Answers from Our Salisbury Criminal Defense Lawyers

After an arrest, you probably have questions regarding your future, your rights, and what may happen in your case. At MacDonald Law Office, LLC, we are proud to provide quality representation and experienced legal solutions based on our knowledge and insights. As former prosecutors, we know the ins and outs of the Maryland criminal laws from the other side of the courtroom and we use this experience to fight for you.

If you have any concerns or questions, you may find the answer you need below; however, if you still need help, do not hesitate to call our Salisbury criminal defense attorneys at (410) 348-7809 to schedule a consultation.

  • Will I go to jail?

    You may have already been booked into jail and then released, but are worried about an extended incarceration. Depending on the severity of the crime you were accused of and if the prosecutor can reach a conviction, the penalties may include a jail or prison sentence. This happens most often in felony convictions or convictions for multiple offenses. Working with an attorney who will fight for your rights and leave no stone unturned in your defense can help you avoid time behind bars.

  • Will I need to go to court?

    The most likely answer to this question is yes. Trials, hearings, and court dates are almost always necessary in the criminal process, especially for more severe crimes. This, however, does not mean that you need to go alone. Remember that you have the right to an attorney to defend you. As soon as possible after an arrest, call the MacDonald Law Office, LLC and speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Our job is to protect your rights through a strong defense strategy.

  • Can I keep my driver’s license after a DUI arrest?

    Maryland has strict laws in place to suspend the driving privileges of people charged with or convicted of driving while impaired or under the influence of alcohol. The Motor Vehicle Administration will propose a suspension of your license if you refuse to take a breath test or if you take a test and blow over the legal limit. It will also propose a suspension or revocation if you are convicted of a drinking and driving offense. After you have been pulled over on suspicion of DUI, work with our firm to learn more about your rights and what we can do to help.

  • Will my arrest stay on my record?

    Certain crimes do carry lifelong complications, but you may be able to expunge, appeal, and contest certain convictions and arrests. To determine if you are eligible to expunge a previous criminal record or appeal or otherwise contest a conviction, work with the MacDonald Law Office, LLC.

  • How can I protect my child from a criminal conviction?

    The juvenile criminal justice system treats minors differently than adults. Mistakes do happen and a youthful misstep should not haunt your child’s record for years to come. Alcohol, theft, and drug crimes are common offenses that our Salisbury criminal defense attorneys handle. We work hard to put up a fight on their behalf.
