Maryland DUI/DWI

Under Maryland law, you may be charged with either of the following:

  • Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol: A more severe criminal charge that could result in up to three years in jail for subsequent offenders and a suspension or revocation of your driving privileges
  • Driving While Impaired: A lesser offense that may still result in a revoked or suspended driver's license, jail time, heavy fine, in-patient treatment and extensive probation

A DUI arrest involves both criminal and civil consequences. The criminal consequences you face depend upon your prior record, the seriousness of the offense, and your blood alcohol content (BAC). Conversely, the civil consequences you face involve an administrative hearing before the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA), which will determine the fate of your driving privileges. Our DUI lawyer , James Papirmeister, will represent you in both the criminal and civil hearings.
