DUI Attorney David Wooten won a DUI trial in Howard County, despite his client’s .13 blood alcohol level. The client ( a 21 year old petty Officer 3rd classin the Navy ) was elated because attorney Wooten even convinced the prosecutor to dismiss his speeding ticket prior to starting the trial… which was the only charge that he would have been convicted of in the end. The client’s two superiors, observing the trial in disbelief, walked out of court and sternly warned the jubilant petty officer.” Don’t let it go to your head”.
Maryland Criminal Defense attorney David Moyse convinced a Howard County prosecutor to completely dismiss drug charges against his client.

Criminal Attorney David Wooten managed to turn a criminal case on its head in Howard County. Attorney Wooten’s client was held for 34 days pending charges for attempted murder, allegedly strangling his girlfriend to unconsciousness. Through diligent investigation and negotiation, however, Mr. Wooten worked out an amazing plea deal, whereby his client pled guilty to simple assault, and the client was sentenced to a straight probationary term. A straight probationary term means that his client was not even officially sentenced to the 34 days that he had already served, which is extremely important for a non-citizen who faces potential deportation as a result of a criminal conviction.
Criminal defense attorney Rand Lucey convinced a Howard County District Court Judge to reduce his client’s 2008 sentence for theft.
