For more than 30 years, I, Michael Modica, have been helping people throughout Delaware fight their DUI/DWI charges, keep their licenses and achieve the best results possible for their case.
Wilmington DUI Attorney Fights The Charges
I have been a practicing attorney for more than 30 years focusing on the defense of criminal and traffic charges; I have handled hundreds of DUI cases and have the experience to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
Being charged with a DUI can cause tremendous anxiety, especially if this is your first interaction with the legal justice system. I believe that with increased knowledge there is power and a lessening of fear. I make sure my clients understand the charges they are facing, how their case will progress, the defenses that I will pursue and the options available to them.
A DUI conviction has both legal and social consequences. A conviction stays on your record for life. It can be a serious, life altering event. It can impact your existing employment and prevent you from certain job opportunities.
Remember, a failed breath test does not mean that you are automatically guilty! There are many ways to win a DUI charge, even with a failed breath test. I will explain the best strategy for your case.
“I recently had Michael Modica represent me for a DUI. I’d never had any problems with the law ever, so this was a frightening experience for me. He got back to me immediately with any questions I had regarding the case. I felt totally at ease dealing with Michael, and I would highly recommend him to anyone out there in need of representation.” — LH
New Castle County DUI Defense Attorney
No matter how serious your charge — first offense or felony DUI — I can help.
If this is your first offense, Delaware has a DUI first-offender program that may be an appealing option — especially if you are an out-of-state driver. When facing a felony DUI charge you need a lawyer who knows how to fight the harsh penalties and mandatory jail sentences associated with this offense.
I also represent people who have been charged with driving under the influence of drugs — prescription or illegal — fight charges and keep their licenses. I have had success winning DUI cases based upon the failure of the police to comply with procedures applicable to the operation of sobriety checkpoints.
