Silver Spring DUI Lawyer

DUI/DWI in Maryland

In the state of Maryland, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while you are intoxicated or under the influence of impairing substances. There are essentially two different charges associated with this: DWI and DUI. If you are found to be guilty of either charge, then you could face serious penalties, such as jail time, fines, and license suspension or revocation. These two crimes have different elements and slightly different penalties. If you are charged with either crime, then it is important for you to have skilled representation on your side.

As an experienced DUI attorney in Maryland, I am prepared to aggressively represent clients in cases involving:

  • Breath & Blood Tests
  • Field Sobriety Tests
  • Ignition Interlock Device
  • Multiple DUIs
  • MVA Hearing
  • Underage DUI
  • First DUI
  • Felony DUI

Drunk Driving Penalties in Maryland

If you are pulled over and found to be driving while intoxicated (DWI), then you could be arrested and face serious penalties upon conviction. In order to be charged with DWI, it must be proven that your blood alcohol content (BAC) was 0.08% or higher at the time of your arrest.

The penalties for conviction of this crime can include up to $1,000 in fines for a first conviction and $2,000 for a second offense. In addition, you will accumulate 12 points against your record for a conviction, thus resulting in immediate revocation of your driver's license.

DUI is a less-serious offense and requires that you be driving with a BAC between 0.04% and 0.07%. The penalties for conviction include eight points against your record, up to $500 in fines, and up to 60 days in jail for a first offense.
