Maryland DUI Laws
Alcohol offenses are serious. A DUI in Maryland can result in the loss of your driver's license, employment, reputation, and your freedom. These are the repercussions you face in Maryland for being convicted of driving under the influence (DUI/DWI). Unfortunately some employers may be forced to terminate employees who are convicted of drunk driving because of their insurance requirements, but there are a number of ways to fight your pending charges and win.
Even if this is your first time being charged with a crime, you face criminal penalties that consist of a maximum of one year in jail and thousands of dollars in court fines. One thing that many Maryland residents take for granted is their ability to drive. Being forced to walk everywhere, to use public transportation, or taking a cab to buy groceries for your family is a serious consideration; these are just some of the things to consider before pleading guilty or retaining a bargain basement DUI lawyer to defend your case.
