Challenging DUI/DWI Charges For Maryland Drivers

Para español, haga clic aquí.

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. Police officers 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, the criminal defense attorneys at Maronick Law LLC can challenge the charges. Our lawyers have the knowledge and decades of experience to represent you in the face of drunk driving charges anywhere in Maryland.

“I recently had Mr. Maronick represent me for my first DUI case. I was very nervous about it because of the results of the DUI incident. The outcome that I was initially looking at was jail time, high fines and a license suspension. He got me out of jail time, I got probation, and the fines were thrown out. All I ended up having to pay were court costs. He really did his job, and I am very appreciative of that. I highly recommend him to be hired for your DUI case or any others you may have.”

How Our Lawyers Can Help You Fight These Charges

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?

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. We’ll diligently work to protect your driver’s license and limit the consequences these allegations may have on your future.

We defend clients across Maryland against all drunk driving charges, including:

  • First DUI/DWI offenses
  • Second and subsequent DUI/DWI offenses
  • Felony DUI
  • Underage DUI (drivers under 21)
  • Breathalyzer test refusal
  • Boating while intoxicated
  • Biking while intoxicated
  • Driving without a license (DWOL)
  • Charges relating to a DUI while working

Frequently Asked Questions About Maryland DUI Charges

Not everyone knows about Maryland’s DUI laws. Because answers about DUI charges are so essential to have, we at Maronick Law LLC wanted to take some time to answer a few of the more common questions we get from our clients.

If you were arrested for a DUI, contact Maronick Law LLC immediately at 410-881-4022. We represent clients across Maryland and have 24/7 availability, including on nights and weekends. 

Will I lose my license if I am convicted of a DUI?

If you get arrested for a DUI, the arresting officer will likely confiscate your license in the process. If you do not fight the charges or negotiate to reduce sentencing, the suspension may be revoked for up to six months for a first-time conviction. For a second conviction, you may face a license suspension of up to one year.

What are Maryland’s penalties for underage drinking?

It is a misdemeanor for a minor to possess, purchase or consume alcohol. Despite the misdemeanor class offense, a minor can still receive a penalty of a $500 fine for a first offense and a $1,000 fine for any subsequent charges. Additionally, trying to purchase alcohol with a fake ID can result in two months in prison and a fine of $500.

What happens if I refuse to take a breath test?

Everyone has the right to refuse a breath test, but there are consequences to the decision. Choosing not to take the test means that the government will suspend your license for 120 days, and if you continue to refuse at later traffic stops, they can suspend it for a year.

Can I remove a DUI arrest/conviction from my record?

While there are circumstances in which someone can expunge charges from their criminal record, DUI charges are not one of them. Because these charges are permanent, we encourage you to take advantage of an attorney to fight your charges and keep your record as clean as possible.
