Think about DUI penalties before driving drunk

When you know that you are going to consume alcohol, you should make sure that you have a plan in place to get home so you don't have to drive drunk. That is the only sure-fire way to avoid a DUI charge. If you made the mistake of bypassing that planning and ended up with a DUI because you drove while you were inebriated, you are facing some serious charges and penalties.

We fully understand that unexpected things happen and mistakes can occur. If you are already facing a DUI charge, your focus moves from avoiding a drunk driving charge to trying to minimize the penalties associated with a conviction. We can help you to fight the charge against you so that you might be able to minimize the consequences you face.

Some of the penalties you might face if you are convicted of drunk driving in Maryland include court-ordered rehabilitation, incarceration, fines, loss of your driver's license, community service and a marred criminal record. Each of those penalties present challenges that can negatively affect your life.

The effects of a conviction are even greater if you have a commercial driver's license. In that case, you are facing the prospect of losing your job and your source of income.

No matter what type of license you hold, we can help you to present a defense against the drunk driving charges. There aren't any guarantees when it comes to the outcome, but a defense that is built strongly can often help to keep the penalties for driving drunk to a minimum.
