Criminal Law

Mr. Tydings has extensive experience in defense of criminal and serious traffic charges including DWI/DUI charges, in adult and juvenile court. He is known for his ability to assist and guide you through the entire system while focusing on your personal situation with the objective of defeating any charges and/or minimizing any impact on your personal and professional life, at the time and in the future.

We will conduct a thorough interview with you and review your case. We will discuss possible outcomes and the specific facts regarding your charges and any possible defenses you may have.

Each case usually involves a charging document and an arrest. You may be charged with a Misdemeanor or a Felony under the Md. Criminal Code. Throughout that process you have Constitutional Rights regarding the validity of an arrest; probable cause to arrest; Miranda Rights and Rights that prohibit unreasonable search and seizure. These Rights are contained in the First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and !4th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and are also contained in the Maryland State Constitution.

All matters are prepared expecting a trial in front of a judge or Jury. Mr. Tydings has excellent trial skills and does not shy away from the challenges of trying a case. In addition, a Plea Agreement may be reached that can limit your risk and exposure while still providing you with an appropriate result under the circumstances.

The bottom line is that the State must prove each and every element of the offense you are charged with beyond a reasonable doubt. "They gotta prove it." Many times they can't.
