Maryland has some of the strictest DWI/DUI laws in the country, but those laws are enforced by human beings who can make mistakes. The laws outline the correct parameters for operating a vehicle and levy punishment when drivers do not.
Drivers should follow the law, and so should law enforcement. For example, they need to follow the correct procedures for field sobriety tests, which are complicated to administer. Law enforcement also needs to properly maintain and operate a Breathalyzer machine. If they do not, we can challenge the charges.

How Can An Attorney Help?
A drunk driving defense attorney with an understanding of the legal process can question the validity of the charges:
- Was there probable cause for being pulled over?
- Was the Breathalyzer test administered properly?
- Each field sobriety test has its own protocols. Did the officer follow them?
A drunk driving conviction can have a far-reaching impact on any driver's life. While many think they are guilty as soon as they are pulled over, an experienced DUI/DWI defense attorney can often make a difference in the case.
Losing your license is not the only setback if you are facing DUI/DWI charges: insurance premiums can go up, there is the possibility of jail time, there will likely be hefty fines and there will be escalating penalties for repeat offenses.
