Maryland DUI Lawyers – Introduction to DUI in Maryland
You hear about people being arrested for drunk driving every day but no one ever thinks it will happen to them. Being arrested for DUI or DWI in Maryland or any other State is scary, stressful, and intimidating – plain and simple. A drunk driving arrest is a life changing event that can have a negative impact on your immediate future and follow you for the rest of your life. Fortunately, a Maryland DUI arrest isn’t the same as a conviction and you can fight the charges against you.
From the moment you were arrested, the clock began ticking and events and deadlines were put in place – you may now have 10 days from the date of your arrest to save your driver’s license, you may have to attend a Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) hearing to fight for your driving privileges, and a criminal court trial will be set. Although you are probably feeling overwhelmed and may want to put your arrest out of your mind and “deal with it later,” it is extremely important that you act fast to take the necessary steps to help save your license, protect your legal rights, and fight the criminal charges against you. We can help.

Our highly trained DUI defense attorneys have the experience and knowledge to challenge the State’s case against you so that your drunk driving charges may be reduced or dismissed altogether.
