Elkton, Maryland, Full-Service Lawyer You Can Trust


"I was arrested for driving under the influence. I took the test and blew a .26. I met with Mr. Onifer and he was able to relieve my stress concerning the situation. He totally informed me of the process, and walked me through the whole ordeal step by step. On the trial date, Mr. Onifer negotiated a deal with the state, and I was placed on unsupervised probation and paid a $150.00 fine. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Onifer's services."
