Challenging DUI/DWI Charges for Drivers in Maryland

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 Breathalyzer machines. If they do not, we can challenge the charges. Our Baltimore DUI lawyers have the knowledge and experience to represent you in the face of drunk driving charges anywhere in Maryland.

Contact The Law Offices of Thomas Maronick Jr LLC today at (410) 934-3007 to discuss your charges.

How Our Baltimore DUI Lawyers Can Help

A DUI defense attorney with an understanding of the legal process can question the validity of your charges, asking key questions:

  • Did the officer have probable cause to pull you over?
  • Was the Breathalyzer test administered properly?
  • Did the officer follow the specific protocols associated with each field sobriety test?

A DUI or DWI conviction can have a far-reaching impact on any driver's life. 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.

While many think they are guilty as soon as they are pulled over, an experienced DUI defense attorney can often make a significant difference in the case.

Maryland’s Impaired Driving Offenses: DUI vs. DWI

In Maryland, there are two primary types of impaired driving offenses, which involve drivers who operate vehicles with illegal blood alcohol concentrations (BACs) or whose abilities are impaired by alcohol and/or drugs:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) is the offense of operating a motor vehicle with a BAC of .08% or greater. This is punishable by up to 1 year in jail and a $1000 fine for a first offense, along with driver’s license revocation for 6 months.
  • Driving while impaired by alcohol (DWI) is the offense of operating a motor vehicle while one’s abilities are impaired by alcohol, even if a BAC test shows that it is below the legal limit. DWI is punishable by up to 2 months in jail and a fine of up to $500, along with license suspension for 6 months.
