Most states have a first-time plea deal when it comes to DUIs.  In Maryland, an agreement is generally offered if no one was injured, there was no recorded accident, and your blood alcohol level was not exceedingly high. An experienced DUI lawyer can help you not only with bargaining the standard first offense deal but also with repeat offenses or trial proceedings if necessary.


You should hire a lawyer if there is any evidence that you are innocent such as dash camera footage of eyewitness testimony, if you were involved in an accident, hurt someone, or had a high BAC. A seasoned DUI lawyer can limit the fines, probation period, jail time, and protect your rights in these cases.


Do not risk finding out later you should have hired an experienced Baltimore DUI lawyer for your case. Schedule a free first-time consultation, and we will let you know what we can and cannot do for your specific situation. Our experience in handling DUI cases and knowing your rights will keep you protected and provide a strategic defense to get you the results you need in your DUI law case.  You can find out more about our DUI lawyers here.
