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 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 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.
Showed me true dedication that goes far beyond a paycheck
“James Farmer and his team exceeded all expectations! I had a very serious criminal case and his firm was recommended to me by a family member. I was incarcerated during this time and he and his associate Stephanie came to update me on multiple occasions on the progress of my case. They were not only professional but the amount of time and energy they put into my case showed me true dedication that goes far beyond a paycheck! They prepared for trial, but in the end was able to work out a plea deal that did not include any jail time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney. I highly recommend Mr. Farmer and his team for any criminal case!”
The staff at the office was very friendly and professional.
“I would highly recommend this attorney to anyone who is in need of an attorney.”

Thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning

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!
