In Maryland, all drunk driving charges are serious.DUI and DWI are both jailable offenses, and they can both lead to your license being suspended or revoked, even for a first offense.I have helped many people successfully navigate these charges without going to jail or losing their license, and I can also help you. I have beaten field sobriety tests, I have caused MVA cases to be thrown out, and I have made judges disbelieve the testimony of police officers.
Call me now at (301) 556-8709 so that we can start making your case a success.
A Maryland DUI or DWI case has two major aspects that proceed simultaneously.
The first aspect of your case is your upcoming trial on the criminal charges of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Driving While Impaired (DWI), where you go before a judge on your trial date, and you could potentially be sent to jail.
The second aspect of your Maryland DUI or DWI case is your administrative case.
The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) holds hearings and has administrative penalties for DUI breath test results and breath test refusals.
The Maryland MVA administrative case decides whether or not your driver’s license should be suspended or revoked, and cannot result in imprisonment.
If you value your ability to drive, your administrative case may be as important or even more important than your criminal DUI charges.
Your criminal DUI charges in court and your administrative case at the Maryland MVA are related, and they can effect each other, but they are also separate proceedings. I take a holistic approach to each DUI or DWI case, handling both your criminal charges and your MVA hearing as part of a coordinated strategy suited to your particular needs.
