Will I have to go to jail?
With any arrest, there is a chance that you may have already been booked into the jail system and then released, but the risk of extended incarcerations may be there. Depending on the severity of the crime you were accused of, and the legal penalties for the crime, there is always a chance that jail or prison time may be in your future. The best way to avoid lengthy sentencing is to work with an attorney that can fight for your rights and help you avoid time behind bars.

Will I need to go to court?

Can I keep my driver’s license after a DUI?
The state of Maryland has strict laws and regulations in place for DUI offenders and most likely, your license has already been revoked. While the temporary revocation of your license may be in place that does not mean that you will lose your driving privileges altogether. You must still be present at various hearings and trials, and our office can help. Let our criminal defense lawyer help safeguard your driver’s license.

Will this stay on my record?
