DUI In Maryland and What You Need To Do

You are facing arrest for DUI in Maryland.  What do you do now?

No one gets behind the wheel believing it could happen to them. Even so, we read about it every day online and hear about it constantly on our local news.  It can happen to anyone, from blue collar workers to corporate CEO’s, Police Officers, government workers with security clearances and even clergy.   If you are arrested for DUI in Maryland, it’s important that you have someone representing you who is truly experienced in Maryland DUI laws and can guide you properly through the process.

A DUI Arrest Is Not A Conviction

You have rights and you can fight the charges you are facing.

The time to begin that fight is now. From the moment of your arrest, the clock has been ticking. There are deadlines to save your driver’s license. Time is also necessary to prepare an aggressive defense for your criminal court trial. This can all be overwhelming. Many people procrastinate and “put it off until later” because the reality of what has happened is too much. You can’t afford to do that.

Some decide they just want to represent themselves and believe they alone can convince the judge to lessen or drop their charges.

Despite the temptation, don’t take this matter into your own hands. You may think you can handle mounting a defense, or are looking to save money. This is the biggest mistake that those charged with DUI make. DUI laws are not simple. It’s important that you have an experienced DUI attorney on your side to protect your legal rights, help save your license and fight any criminal charges.
