DUI / DWI Defense Lawyers in Baltimore
In the state of Maryland, anyone who has been arrested for a DUI could
have only up to 10 days to request a hearing with the Office of Administrative
Hearings at the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration.
Without requesting a hearing, you could be at risk of losing your driver's license.
Acting quickly and seeking legal counsel immediately following your arrest
could mean a significant difference in the final outcome of your specific
case. With the help of The Law Office of Matthews, Owens and Associates,
LLC at your side, you can effectively fight the charges made against you,
keep your driving privileges, and increase your chances of gaining a reduction
in charges or in some instances, a complete case dismissal.
Don't risk a criminal conviction. Act immediately!
Maryland prosecutors do not take DUI offenses lightly. If you were found
to be operating a motor vehicle with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level
of .08% or more, you could be facing serious criminal repercussions. Even
first-time DUI offenders with no criminal history can be facing mandatory
jail time and a permanent criminal record.
First-time DUI convictions could carry the following penalties:
- Up to 1 year in jail
- Fines not exceeding $1,000
- At least 6 month driver's license suspension
- Possible installation of an ignition interlock device at your own expense
- Increased insurance premiums
- Other probationary penalties, such as community service
As with most other states, DUI penalties can only increase depending on
new convictions, the amount of alcohol found within the system, the presence
of a minor, or other circumstances. No DUI case is too complex for our
experienced Baltimore criminal defense lawyers and we are prepared to
proactively investigate every avenue possible of defense on your behalf.
