The SCB DUI Defense Team

Is there a defense to DUI charges?

The consequences of a DUI or DWI conviction are severe, potentially including jail, a lengthy suspension, fines, and enhanced penalties for later convictions. After thoroughly examining the records and evidence being used against you, our lawyers may determine that there was no reasonable cause for a traffic stop, that the police did not use proper procedures in the administration of the roadside sobriety test or breath test; the charging document is flawed; evidence is tainted or cannot be used; or that there is some other defense to the drunk driving charges. When they have fully evaluated the case, the attorneys will suggest a strategy, so you can make a well-informed decision about the direction of your case.

Maryland DUI/DWI charges

In Maryland, an arrest for drinking or drug use and driving often results in charges of Driving Under the Influence (DUI). The more serious charge is Driving While Impaired (DWI). The level of charge is normally determined by the suspect’s blood alcohol level (BAC).

The MVA hearing

Your ability to work, to attend school, or to take care of your family may depend on your driving privileges. As a part of representation on DUI/DWI charges, our attorneys will represent you at your Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) hearing, where it will be determined whether your driver’s license will be suspended or revoked, and if it is possible to get a restricted license.
