Criminal Law for Clients Facing Maryland DUI or DWI Charges
If you have been charged with DUI or DWI in Maryland, you face the potential for a suspended license, heavy fines, mandatory counseling and educational programs, jeopardizing your insurance coverage and/or the potential for jail time. The penalties become progressively more severe for the following:
- An ordinary adult driver can be charged with DUI (driving under the influence) with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of .08, or by being under the influence of drugs.
- With a BAC of between .04 and .08, a driver can be charged with DUI (driving under the influence) if there is other evidence of impairment.
- Commercial drivers have lower BAC limits (.04), and drivers under 21 or with alcohol restrictions can face DUI charges with a BAC of only .02.
If you have been charged with drinking and driving, our lawyers will work directly with you to learn the details of your story and plan your DUI or DWI defense.
