Award-Winning Lawyers Fighting for Your Best Interests

DUI Lawyers in Montgomery County

Aggressively Fighting to Protect Your Freedom

Getting charged with driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious offense and must be dealt with as such. A first-time conviction could result in a $1,000 fine, 12 points added to your driving record, having your driver’s license revoked for up to half a year, and up to one full year in jail. Subsequent offenses, naturally, have harsher punishments. In addition, a conviction may appear on background checks, thereby negatively affecting your ability to apply for loans, obtain housing, and get a job. This is why you need experienced representation to fight any and all charges levied against you.

DUI & DWI in Maryland

If you are stopped by a police officer who suspects that you are driving under the influence, he/she may ask you to submit to a portable breath test or a field sobriety test. The portable breath test will measure your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to see how intoxicated you are. However, these tests are frequently incorrect and can be challenged in court. If you are arrested for driving while impaired, the officer will read you your rights, provide you with an Advice of Rights form, and ask you to submit to a chemical BAC test through either urine or blood. If you test above 0.08 percent BAC, you will be given your traffic citation(s), an Order of Suspension, and have your Maryland driver’s license revoked.

For a second DUI conviction, the penalties are:

  • $2,000 fine
  • 12 points added to your license
  • Revoked license for up to one full year
  • Up to two years in prison with a mandatory minimum of five days
