Waldorf DUI/DWI Defense Attorneys
Put a Proven Fighter in Your Corner
The state of Maryland has two sets of laws for DWI charges and DUI charges. Both are incredibly serious and need to be treated as such. Our Waldorf, Maryland DUI/DWI defense lawyers have been aggressively representing clients arrested on drunk driving charges in Southern Maryland for decades. As your legal team, we will strive to get the charges reduced or the case dismissed and to minimize the negative consequences for you.
Our lawyers have successfully handled thousands of DUI cases, including the high-profile case of Washington Redskins cornerback Byron Westbrook in 2010. Read more here.
We Take Action to Tear Apart the State’s Case against You
If you have been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, do not hesitate to contact our experienced legal team. Just because you blew over .08 on a breathalyzer test doesn’t mean you have no defense. We will offer you a free consultation, during which we will review your case and help you understand your options.
Many people who are facing DUI charges think they have no choice but to plead guilty. They fear that the evidence is stacked against them, even if they didn’t actually do anything wrong.
The Waldorf DUI defense lawyers at the Farmer & Klopfer have practiced law for a combined total of over 100 years, and our criminal defense team is known for aggressive representation that works. We leave no stone unturned when defending someone against a DUI charge.
As your lawyers, we will aim to break down the case against you by investigating the following:
- Did the officer who stopped you have probable cause to pull you over?
- Was proper procedure followed during the stop, arrest, and booking?
- Was the breathalyzer test administered correctly?
- Was the officer properly trained in giving the test?
- Was the test unit properly calibrated and in good working condition?
We also handle cases where there has been a drunk driving accident and a person has accused you of being responsible for the situation.
When you are facing drunk or drugged driving allegations, we are prepared to do whatever it takes to help you keep your license, protect your freedom, and defend your future.
It is important that you act quickly to mount your defense. Contact the Farmer & Klopfer as soon as possible after your arrest. We can begin by representing you at your Motor Vehicle Administration hearing and working to get you a restricted license. We offer free initial consultations, and we have payment plans available for our criminal defense services.

Keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with
I just recently had James E. Farmer handle my second DUI and I received the best possible outcome I could've wished for. The judge I had could've really laid down the hammer on me but James worked his magic and did an incredible job. He knows what he is talking about and is very humble. He keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with, and he explains everything so you know exactly what is going on. This is my first time hiring James and without a doubt, I would hire him again. He would be the first person I'd call if another legal problem should ever rise-- though I've made a promise to myself to stay away from the law as much as possible. He will be highly recommended to anyone that asks me if I know a great lawyer.”
Thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning
“From the initial consultation, I knew I needed James Farmer and his team on my side. He was thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning, prior to even hiring his firm. Once I officially hired his firm, he and his colleague Mr. Melvin Allen moved to strategically place me in the best position possible. They supported me throughout the process by making sure I understood what was happening and I felt extremely grateful to have them on my side! Long story short, my case was successfully completed with a favorable outcome! An outcome I couldn’t even imagine was possible but Mr. Allen’s expertise, strategy, and courtroom presence made it all possible! My wife and I are forever grateful and will always look to this firm on any future needs and you should, too!”
Kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable
“I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from this law firm. I felt comfortable from the minute I first walked through the door. I had less than two weeks before the expiration of my personal injury filing date and was overwhelmed. My first appointment was with Elizabeth who took my huge stack of papers with a smile and said, “Let me take care of this for you.” Although all of the staff that I encountered were wonderful, my main experience was with Mr. Farmer and Elizabeth who were both kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable. My case was handled professionally and in a timely fashion. My case was recently concluded and I am very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to my friends and family in the future. Need a good law firm, no need to look further.”
Thank you, Mr. Farmer, and may God bless you in your future endeavors.
“You and your team have given my family our son back. No amount can adequately compensate for that gift! I can only hope our heart-felt thank-you and 'God bless you' will somehow offset the imbalance.”
