Maryland DUI/DWI Attorney: Drunk Driving Lawyer

Criminal Lawyers and Maryland DUI Lawyers

You probably never thought it would happen to you but now you've been charged with drunk driving. Driving under the Influence (DUI) and Driving While Impaired (DWI) are serious offenses in the State of Maryland.  You stand to lose a lot. Your driver’s license is confiscated on the spot and you may also pay fines, lose points, risk losing your driving privileges for up to 4 months or longer, be required to attend DUI driver education classes, have your auto insurance rates sky-rocket, and even spend time in jail. The consequences can be severe.  Our Maryland criminal lawyers/ DUI lawyers help people with DUI, DWI and drunk driving related issues get the best possible outcome.

Maryland DUI/drunk driving Law

There is a common misconception that a Maryland drunk driving case against you is hopeless, and that there is no use investigating or even fighting the charges. The truth is that there is a lot that could happen - your drunk driving case can be dismissed or your charges could be reduced. For example, just because you were charged with DUI or DWI does not mean the government can prove their case. The government might have evidence, witness credibility or availability issues, or other legal issues that prevent them from being able to prove that you are guilty. In addition, there are many instances when a police officer’s acts, or failure to comply with detailed procedures when making an arrest, creates a valid defense allowing your DUI or drunk driving case to be dismissed.  

On top of all of this, DUI chemical testing is not an exact science, and can be grossly misleading. The process is prone to errors and the assumptions used can make the test results and conclusions misleading. Without an experienced criminal lawyer/DUI lawyer investigating your case, you may never know if there is something there that can exonerate you.
