Maryland DUI Laws

If you’ve been charged with DUI in Baltimore, it’s important that you know your rights. The state’s DUI laws are complex, you deserve to have an attorney explain your situation to you in a way that you can understand.

First, talk with an attorney before pleading guilty. This will ensure your legal team has the opportunity to build a strong case for you. For example, the team at Burke & Jaskot will examine the details of your arrest and determine if the police acted in accordance with the law.  

The police must be able to articulate a legal reason that they pulled you over before they can even begin to discuss evidence of intoxication.  In most cases, the police must perform the standardized field sobriety tests (SFST’s) properly in order to have probable cause to even arrest you and take you to the station and administer the breathalyzer.  There are also a number of ways in which improper administration of the breath test can lead to the results of that test being thrown out.

Errors in police procedure can lead to a favorable outcome in a trial, including:

  • Case dismissal
  • Acquittal
  • Reduced fines
  • A favorable plea agreement
  • Avoiding suspended license  

If you were above the legal limit (.08 BAC), it is important that the police followed proper procedures and you have options for contesting your charges. The attorneys at Burke & Jaskot are committed to gathering evidence and determining the best defense in your case. If you go to trial, or seek to fight for a reduced sentence or plea agreement, our team will fight aggressively to achieve the most favorable outcome in your case.
