      The First and Only Board-Certified DUI Attorney in Maryland.

      Those who meet board-certification have proven they are superior to other lawyers through experience, scrupulous background checks, judicial and peer evaluations, and rigorous examination. 
      Being arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol and/or drugs can be very intimidating and confusing. If the arrest follows an injury or fatal accident, however, you are probably feeling very scared and anxious. The last thing you would ever want to do is cause harm to another human being, but now you are being charged with just that. Feeling uncertain of what will happen to you now is normal, but you don’t have to face such serious charges alone. At Alpert Schreyer, LLC, our experienced DUI defense attorneys in Maryland are dedicated to providing our clients with the support, guidance, and legal counsel that they need to overcome such a devastating situation.

      Serious Consequences for a Serious Crime

      Most DUI crimes are misdemeanors. Although the penalties vary, misdemeanor DUI crimes can include driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or causing an accident while under the influence of alcohol or drugs which results in life-threatening injuries to another person. DUI crimes that cause life-threatening injury to another person are the most serious of DUI misdemeanor crimes. If the DUI accident resulted in the death of another person, however, it is a felony.

      Penalties

      Under § 2-504 and § 2-505, any person who is convicted of causing the death of another as the result of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is guilty of a felony and is subject to a maximum imprisonment of three years and/or a maximum fine of $5,000 if it is their first offense. Upon a second or subsequent conviction, the individual is subject to a maximum of five years imprisonment and/or a maximum fine of $10,000. Additional penalties may include the suspension of your driver’s license, the installation of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle, impoundment of your vehicle, and/or completion of a drug/alcohol treatment program.

      What You Are Facing

      Understanding your legal rights and options is the first step to effectively protecting your future, but to do that, you should be aware of the severity of the consequences you face. Not only are there both immediate administrative and criminal consequences, such as those mentioned above, but also future repercussions. A DUI conviction is a criminal conviction and criminal convictions can remain on your record forever. The next time you apply for a job or when you are contesting custody of your children after a divorce, that conviction will be there and may color the decision of whoever is in charge. An employer will almost always hire an applicant without a criminal conviction over one with one, and a judge will usually favor the party without a criminal record. Your best hope to avoid such adverse effects on your future is to retain the services of a knowledgeable DUI defense lawyer who will aggressively fight the serious charges you are facing.

      The attorney’s and paralegals are incredible. They are truly committed to understanding your case and serving you. However, I’ve personally worked with Mr. Berman and Mrs. Bowman through my entire process! I am so grateful for their passion, dedication, and professionalism. I haven’t worked with many attorney’s in the past, but I’m glad you all were recommended to me. You all are truly the best. Thank you so much!
