The Law Office of James Guillory, Esq. is a Southern Maryland law firm dedicated to the defense of those persons accused of criminal and traffic matters all across the state of Maryland.

The firm’s main areas of practice are:


Dealing with a Driving Under the Influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) or Driving While Impaired (DWI) charge can be one of the most stressful events in a person’s life, especially without competent and knowledgeable counsel to advocate on your behalf.

DUI and DWI charges are serious criminal offenses in the State of Maryland. Your license to drive will be confiscated on the spot. You risk losing your privilege to drive for four months or more. As a result of your arrest, penalties could include losing your license, expensive fines and court costs, increased insurance premiums, adverse treatment when applying for a job, loss of security clearance, canceled insurance policy, and even possible jail time.

This is probably your first contact with the criminal justice system and it is a serious and frightening event. Most people are not familiar with Maryland's complex web of DUI/DWI laws and they do not know their legal rights when they find themselves handcuffed and sitting in the back of a police patrol vehicle. It is in these worrisome times that experienced legal representation is a must. You must act quickly to plan your defense and protect your Maryland driving privileges. It is important to know that when charged with DUI or DWI charges, you are facing a suspension of your driving privileges and you will have just 10 days to respond to this suspension. As a courtesy to you, I will advise you on what you must do about this, at no charge, just for calling me.

During our free initial consultation, you will be given all the information you need. There will be no further obligation whatsoever. I will explain the charges against you, the legal process, how to protect your rights, and most importantly, the available options to defend your freedom, livelihood, and maintain your driver's license. If you are not able to come in for an appointment we can arrange a phone consultation or I can meet you at place that is most convenient for you!!!
