Annapolis is both historically significant in Maryland, and in the United States.
It is home to the United States Naval Academy, which is not only home to thousands of students, but also dedicated employees. Annapolis is the capital of Maryland and home of the Maryland State Legislature, but it is also a little known fact that it was once the capital of the United States. It may have been only for less than a year, but Annapolis was once the political center of what would turn out to be the most prosperous and powerful country in the world. While there are only about 40,000 full time residents, the metropolitan area is growing rapidly and is also a popular tourist destination, especially during the summer. There is an obvious lack of public transportation in the city, as it is the only capital on the east coast without a railway. Therefore getting in and out of the city is predominately by car along Maryland’s highways and interstates, or via the various back roads. The lack of public transportation is also one reason why there are a large amount of traffic stops, and arrests for such crimes as DUI and possession of Marijuana by the APD. Our lawyers are also available to meet in person at any time, and we will come to you to discuss your criminal case.
