Maryland DWI and DUI Lawyer

By:

Maryland's DUI laws are different from those in many states in that Maryland recognizes DUI (Driving Under the Influence of alcohol or drugs) and DWI (Driving While Intoxicated by alcohol or drugs) as separate offenses.

In most cases, you can be charged with DUI in Maryland for driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) between .04 and .08. Those who are found to have a BAC at or above .08 are generally charged with DWI. For a better understanding of the distinction between the two, you should consider talking with a Maryland DUI lawyer.

If you're facing DUI charges or DWI charges in Maryland, you could lose your license, face jail time and end up owing thousands of dollars in fines. A Maryland DUI lawyer can help you understand your rights, explain Maryland's complex driver's license point system and make sure you understand Maryland DUI laws.
