Maryland DUI Lawyer

Getting arrested for DUI and/or DWI can be an extremely difficult event for the accused and often their family members as well. Maryland DUI laws can impose mandatory minimum sentence and the Maryland MVA will often revoke driver’s license even for an arrest. Police will also make arrests when they suspect drivers are under the influence of drugs including marijuana. Often times a DUI or DWI arrest can lead to additional charges in Maryland for other traffic offenses as well as gun or drug charges when the driver may have contraband in the vehicle.
